Grades have been updated.  They include all make up work and retake tests. 

If you do not like your grade.  Here are a list of things I suggest taking a look at.

1.  Are you doing your homework for points or to learn?  Don't just do it to get it done.  Do it to learn the material.

2.  Are you following directions?  Many student are losing points for simply not following directions.  If it says to write a sentence, then WRITE A SENTENCE!!!  A sentence has a subject and a predicate.  If you are not sure if it is a sentence or not.  Try pretending you are plugging it into a paragraph.  Does it make sense on its own?  If not, it is not a sentence.  Also it asks you to write the significance.  Do that!!!

3.  Do you know the material?  Can you explain a term without your notes?  If not, you do not know the material.  You may need to study more.

4.  Do your homework!!  Homework is practice.  Without the exposure to the material, you will be lost in class and on tests. 

Hope that helps.  In the end, it comes down to what you are willing to do to help yourself.  I can't help you if you do not want to learn.

Grades have been updated!

Your password is the same as your Google password from class.  Your login is your last name.  Make sure to choose the right period.

If you are new to my class, your password is currently your id number.  I will get you the other info soon.  Also, I have not gotten any scores from Mr. Bussey yet.

Remember that this is in no way your final grade.  This is just for you to check that this matched what you have gotten back in class.

No make-up or corrected work has been entered yet.  You just gave it to me today!  I am good, but not that good.  :-)

I do not use Engrade.  Just click on the link that says Grades on the right.  Or click here 



*Grades- should be updated later today, Friday afternoon at the latest.  Will include the first test.

*Students had the opportunity today to redo incorrect homework and turn it in for full credit.  They also had the one time deal of turning in any missing work for half credit.  This was a one time deal.  It will take some time for this to be reflected in their grade.  GRADES WILL NOT SHOW THE CORRECTIONS OR MAKE UP WORK THIS WEEK.

*New dates-  Below you will see the dates for the next chapter.

9/23- Ch 3.1
9/15- Ch 3.2
9/27- Ch 3.3
9/30- Ch 3.4
10/1- I will be lecturing on 3.5 in class. If the student is absent, it is their responsibility to cover the material by doing the homework for that section.
10/2- Ch 3 Test

Please be mindful that incomplete assignments are not accepted.  Please just follow the directions for the homework.  The homework is the "assessment" at the end of each section.
