Math Policies and Procedures
By: Allie Temple
My philosophy about teaching mathematics
If a student is absent from class, it is their responsibility to find out what notes and assignments they missed from class. These assignments must be made up promptly for full credit. The number of days given to make up work is equal to the number of days absent. Please put the word ABSENT on the top of the assignments when they are turned in so proper points can be given.
Please put all Absent Work in the appropriate basket in the classroom.
If a student does poorly on a quiz/test (72% and lower) they will get the opportunity to retake a similar test only AFTER completing additional practice tasks. If they “choose” not to do the tasks, which is additional homework/classwork on top of their existing work, then a test cannot be retaken. There will be a set day, designated by me, when this test will be taken.
Students will receive 2 grades in math class, an academic grade and a responsibility/behavior grade.
Academic Grades are based on the following:50% Tests
(including pop quizzes, benchmarks, unit assessments, projects, and performance indicators)
50% Daily Grades
(including daily assignments, group work, math journal grades)
Responsibility/behavior grades are based on the following:
50% Daily homework completion
50% Participation and being prepared for class.
