General Classroom Information

Syllabus:

6th grade Math 6

7th grade Pre-Algebra Accelerated

 

Homework: Students and Parents should expect homework assignments almost every day.  Most assignments will be on Schoology, however, a paper copy is available for those who request one.   

 

Assessments: Since Farnsworth Aerospace Upper uses standards based grading, students will be allowed to retest on any learning targets they choose, but are required to retest if their score is below a 3. In order to retest, students must have a score of 3 or 4 on all assignments related to that learning target, and must show they have done additional preparation for the retest (options for this will be discussed in class with their math teacher).

 

Assessment Grading Scale: Grading will be standards-based using a scale from 0 to 4.  

4 (A) – Exceeds Proficiency (Performing above grade level)

3 (B) – Proficient (Performing at grade level)

2 (C) – Partially Proficient

1 (D) – Not Proficient

0 (N) – Missing OR Not Observed

    **Students are required to redo any assessment with a score below 3 until they achieve proficiency.

 

Updates: Parents can keep up to date on their student's grades, missing assignments and much more by signing into Schoology with your G#.  If you forgot what your G# is, or you are having problems getting into Schoology, stop in the office to get set up with an account!  This is the best way to get the most up to date information.
