Supplies needed:These supplies will be used daily and should be brought to class every day.
There is a link to this site on the Lowellville Schools webpage under high school – teacher webpages. Check the website for lesson plans, a calendar of class events, and links to useful information. You can check the website when you are absent to see what you missed.
Grading Scale: A = 93-100
B = 85-92
C = 75-84
D = 65-74
F = 64 and lower
Grades will be rounded ONLY if the decimal is .5 or higher.
Example: 92.4 = B 92.5 = A
You will be given a grade sheet that will be used in class to keep track of your grade.
Also, check Progressbook often to see your grade as assignments are entered, and
compare to your grade sheet.
Your 9 week grades will be calculated by dividing your total points earned by the total points possible for the 9 week period. Your points will come from tests, quizzes, homework, labs, in class assignments, projects and participation. Homework will be checked periodically and checks will not be announced. Notebooks / binders will be checked at the end of each 9 week period. They will be checked for completeness, and to see that all class materials have been kept.
Final Grades: Final grades for the course will be calculated as follows:
1st 9 weeks = 20%
2nd 9 weeks = 20%
Midterm Exam = 10%
3rd 9 weeks = 20%
4th 9 weeks = 20%
Final Exam = 10 %
I am available for help during 1st period study hall, 5th period lunch and 9th period planning each day. Please do not hesitate to stop by if you are having trouble understanding the material taught in class.
