Most of the course grade (around 80%) is based on quizzes, tests, and other summative assessments. The remainder of the grade (around 20%) is based on class participation and homework.
In order to receive a good class participation grade, students should be taking notes, working productively on assignments, behaving appropriately, and volunteering to respond to questions. A good homework grade is awarded for attempting all homework assignments and showing good effort and some understanding on those assignments.
Each course has a specific Google Classroom page. This page is where I post all homework assignments, quiz/test announcements, and other information or files for class. The homework set is posted on the first day of each new lesson. I will make a second post giving a specific time when that homework is due. I do this because a lesson may take several days, and some students prefer to do a little homework each night instead of doing all of it at once.
Students are expected to behave in a respectful and disciplined manner appropriate to an academic environment. Misbehavior will result in disciplinary consequences.
Quizzes and Tests
Any student present in class is expected to take a quiz or test given that day. Extensions are only granted for unusual circumstances (usually multiple absences just before the quiz/test).
