# Geometry B

Mrs. Nowell

## Materials:

1) Textbook--A CD is available for this course. The replacement cost is the same as the cost of a new textbook.

2) Notebook, folder, paper, pencil, etc…

3) A calculator will be provided to use in class; however, you might want one for your own use at home

## Course Work:

The points in this class come from two categories:

**Homework:**

Homework will be assigned on a daily basis. Homework is worth 0-3 points. Not all homework will be collected for credit.

**Quizzes and Tests:**

All chapter tests and most quizzes will be announced.

## Final Grade:

The final semester grade will be calculated as follows: 1^{st}and 2^{nd} card-marking grades will count 40% each, and the final exam will count 20%.

## Grading Scale

: A: 93-100, A-: 90-92, B+: 87-89…E:0-59

## Make-Up Work:

Make-up work is accepted for a deduction of points within a reasonable time frame. If you are absent, you have **2**days to turn in your missing assignments. If due to a suspension, you will receive NO CREDIT (zero points) for any work due or for any tests/quizzes missed.

**Cheating**: From the student handbook: “Any student who plagiarizes, who hands in any work which is not new or entirely his own, may fail the card marking. If the student plagiarizes a second time, he may fail the course.” Among other things, “plagiarism consists of copying work of other students” or receiving answers in any other form by any method. Both the giver and receiver of the work in question will have the same consequence.

**T**ardy/Attendance Policy: You are to be in your seat when the bell rings; otherwise, you are tardy.

1^{st} and 2^{nd} tardy: reminder

3^{rd} tardy: 1-HOUR detention and parents notified

4^{th} tardy: Assistant Principal Notified and Tardy Contract drawn up

6^{th} tardy: Saturday Detention Assigned

7^{th} Tardy: Student dropped from class

**Grades: **parents can access student grades and attendance online. Grades will be updated after each quiz or test. This will be nearly every week.

**Class Rules:** Be a respectful person, and you won’t have a problem. **Cell phones are a big problem. I’ll follow the school rules on them.**
