Subject: Grading policy

In our county homework can count for no more than 15% of a student's
grade.  I make sure that happens.  When I give homework students get
credit for their effort.  We go over every problem given and students
get a chance to see where they made mistakes, if any.  If a student
does no homework the highest grade that they can obtain is a "B"(85%).

I teach Honors Algebra I to gifted 7th graders and Geometry Honors to
gifted 8th grades.  I have to use the high school grading scale, since

these classes are high school classes.  The students also receive
credit for high school early, in middle school.

Grades are based on the following categories:

	Test/Quizzes -          70%
        Homework     -          15%
        other assignments -     15%
           (projects, classwork, notebooks, cooperative learning      
assignments, etc.)

Students are told the classroom expectations at the beginning of the
school year, and are also reminded of them throughout the year.
I hope this helps.
