    Course Expectations, Goals & Routines

    Finite Math A

     

    Materials Needed: (Bring EVERY day)

    • Workbook, Textbook
    • Folder & Notebook OR Binder & Paper (used for math  ONLY!!)
    • Scientific / Fraction Calculator (Texas Instruments TI-30X IIS Recommended)
    • Pencils and Erasers
    Grades:

    Marking Period (6 weeks) Grades:

    Graded Homework: 25% of overall grade

              Notebook: 25% of overall grade

             Tests: 50% of overall grade

                          

     

    Trimester Grade

    : (This grade goes on your Transcript and is used in calculating your GPA)

                1st

    Marking Period (6 weeks) Grade: 40% of Trimester Grade

                2nd

    Marking Period (6 weeks) Grade: 40% of Trimester Grade

                Final Exam Grade: 20% of Trimester Grade    

    Example:  If a student gets a 1st Marking Period grade of 83%, a 2nd

    Marking Period grade of 74%, and 61% on the Final Exam, the Trimester Grade will be calculated like this:

                1st Marking Period Grade:       

    83 x 40% = 33.2

                2nd Marking Period Grade:      

    74 x 40% = 29.6

                Final Exam Grade:                  

    61 x 20% = 12.2

                Trimester Grade =       

    33.2 + 29.6 + 12.2 = 75/C
