Welcome to Mrs. Roncone’s math class!! The expectation is that you do your best and respect the learning environment and hard work of others. I have no tolerance for laziness and neither should you. You have been given an awesome opportunity here at early college and you should take full advantage of it!!!!!!!!
- Students’ grades will be calculated according to a point system.
- To calculate the final average the number of points earned will be divided by the number of points possible and multiplied by 100 to get a percentage.
- There will be a minimum of one quiz grade and one test grade per unit.
- Quizzes are based on recent homework assignments and can be announced and unannounced.
- Tests are cumulative and may cover material from previous chapters.
- Tests will be worth more points than quizzes and will therefore count as a higher percentage of the grade.
- Homework is sometimes graded for accuracy and sometimes checked for completion and will count toward the final grade.
- We go over the homework in depth and all questions are answered daily. It is advised that you take advantage of that and ASK QUESTIONS! ASK QUESTIONS! ASK QUESTIONS!
- Projects will also be assigned and graded and will be worth various points depending on the depth of the project.
You need the following for class EVERYDAY:
- 1½ TO 2 INCH BINDER – with lots of paper in it AND a secure place to put worksheets!! If you lose your homework you will get a zero for it, so be organized. Sometimes notes will be provided and you will need a place to keep them organized.
- GRAPH PAPER – we will construct graphs by hand without calculators.
- PENCILS and ERASERS– you need to be able to erase! Do not do your math work with pens!
- GRAPHING CALCULATORS are required. You need a TI-84. If you do not have a calculator you are required to check one out from me and you are responsible for monetarily replacing it if lost.
