Homework and Assignments:
Role Assignments/Warmups: Students will regularly have a Role Assignment/Warmup Quiz at the beginning of most classes. Some of these will be collected and marked for assignment marks, while others will be marked by students and reviewed in class.
Textbook work: Assignments are practice for tests and quizzes and are an important part of the course. As part of your practice, you should:
All homework for each chapter will be collected as a package on the day before the Chapter Test. It will be checked for completion, organization and to see if all work/reasoning has been shown clearly. Homework checks will be a determining factor in assessing Work Habits for your report card.
Your marks will be based primarily on tests, quizzes and assignments. These will count for 70% of your overall mark. You will also have 2 cumulative exams that will count for 10% of your overall mark and the final exam will count for the remaining 20%. Your overall mark will be calculated a bit differently than many of you are used to.
A mark will be assigned from each chapter, and each chapter will be weighted differently. You will receive an overall mark for each chapter that incorporates all assignments, quizzes, tests and project work for that chapter. A mark given for the whole chapter will help you assess whether there are topics you should review at a later date.
I do not allow rewrites for marks, generally. A student may rewrite a test at any time, but it will only be to check to see if they have corrected any gaps in their understanding and will not be used in determining their report card grade. However, there may be opportunites to demonstrate your understanding/learning other than tests if you are not satisifed with your mark. Please discuss this with your teacher. You will be expected to demonstrate that you have done significant work/review in order to earn these opportunities.
Marked tests will be reviewed in class, but students will not be permitted to take them home. If a student wishes to go over the test outside of class time, they may do so in the classroom only.
