In order to perform well in Geometry, I would like you to be aware of my classroom policies and procedures.
Students are required to be in class on time. They should come prepared with the necessary items that will
make the class most productive.
Online Textbook: E-math Instruction, Three Ring Binder, Packet of Graph Paper, Durable Compass
Writing Instrument: Pen, Pencil, Stylus
Calculator: TI – 84 Plus Graphing Calculator (will be required for all math courses and is allowed to be used on the Common Core Exam).Tests
Testing represents 50% of the quarter average. Tests are cumulative in nature, which will be beneficial to the student. Each student should review old material when he/she is preparing for a test.
The Geometry Common Core Exam will be given in June. The students must pass this exam in order to receive an Advanced Regents Diploma.
Quizzes and Homework
Quizzes will represent 25% of the quarterly average. They are given as take-home quizzes and must be turned in on there due date in order to receive credit. Any student not turning in a quiz at the beginning of class will earn a grade of zero on that quiz. Homework will represent 25%. Homework will be given and checked daily. Assignments do not necessarily have to be 100% correct, but should be complete and well organized. Homework assignments will be worth 5 points each. One point will be deducted for:
Missing assignment number
Overall appearance of assignment (work must be readable, numbered, in order, and complete.)
LATE ASSIGNMENTS are any assignments that are not completed at the start of class (this includes work left in locker or at home). If an assignment is not completed on the due date, you have until the next class to complete it. Three points will be deducted for these assignments.
All late assignments must be completed by the next day to receive PARTIAL credit.
If you are absent, YOU will be expected to complete the missing assignments and hand them in within a few days of your return to school. I will not remind you of that responsibility.
QUALITY WORK contains the following:
Assignment number written on top
Problems numbered and in order
Problems are legible
Work is shown in a step by step process
Diagrams are labeled and marked
Students are responsible for making up notes and assignments. Check the Homework chart on the side board for the assignment numbers that were given on the day you were absent. If you are absent for a test or quiz it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to request a suitable time for the make up test. If you fail to make those arrangements you will receive a ZERO on that test or quiz.
The final exam for Geometry is the Common Core Geometry Regents Exam.
The final grade for the course will be determined by calculating the average of the 4 quarterly grades and the Common Core Regents Exam.
