Grading
In this class you will have homework assignments, weekly quizzes and regular tests. For full credit,
please show all of your work. Homework is due at the beginning of class. Per the Quest Family
Handbook, if you have an excused absence, homework is due on the third day you return to class. Each
graded event will receive a set amount of points, such as 10 possible points for a homework assignment
of 30 possible points for quiz. You will receive a grade equaling the points earned out of the total
possible, such as 9 points earned out of 10 possible. You will not receive a letter grade until your report
card, but you can check with me if you want to know your overall grade, or I will let you know how
you are performing if you are having any difficulties. If you do not turn in a homework assignment or
fail to complete a quiz, you will receive zero points for that event.

My Expectations For You
I will bring a positive attitude to class when I teach you and I expect you bring a good attitude. I
believe that anyone can master math with enough patience and hard work, so I will be available to tutor
you before or after school. I expect you to always be respectful of your fellow classmates and teachers.
You are not allowed to use cell phones or personal entertainment devices during class without my
permission. You must ask for my permission to use the bathroom and sign out and in each time.
