6th Grade Mathematics Grading Policy:
The following guidelines have been developed to help you be successful in math this school year.
- Complete all assignments in pencil.
- Nobody is perfect. Mistakes in pencil can be corrected easily.
- Bring your iPad, math journal, notebook, math folder, Home Link homework book and pencil to class everyday.
- Being prepared leads to success.
- Complete your math homework nightly.
- Math homework helps practice new skills –try, try, try.
- Homework completion counts as 5% of your math grade for each marking period.
- Show all work.
- Showing your work allows you to demonstrate your knowledge and skills. It also encourages you to see what mistakes you may have made.
- In order to earn full credit for class work, homework, quizzes, and tests, you should try all problems even if you are unsure.
- Try your best on quizzes and tests.
- Your math grade is made up of quiz grades, test grades, homework completion, and participation. Quizzes count as 30% of your grade; tests make up 60%, and participation (completing assignments in class, working well in groups, paying attention, volunteering) is 5%.
- Quiz retakes are given to strive for mastery before the unit test. A quiz retake may be taken once. You are encouraged to meet with me to review and correct mistakes from the quiz before completing the retake.
- Error analysis is available for test grades on which you score 69% or lower. 70% is the highest grade that can be achieved through error analysis.
- Ask for help when you don’t understand.
- You know best when you need help.
- If you don’t feel comfortable asking for help during class, you need to set up time to get assistance before school.
