    Grades
    Grades are based on the following scale, 40% weight for minor assignments and 60% weighgt for major assignments:

    Homework/Classwork (Minor): This section is a completion grade--completing the activities on Khan Academy or doing an assigned page of SAT problems will make up this category.

    Quizzes (Minor 2x): We will have a few in class quizzes that are formatted like SAT sections.  This will be graded for accuracy (and curved appropriately).

    Tests (Major): Major tests over SAT units will comprise this category.  Once per nine weeks we will take a full SAT test to see where we stand.

     

    Google Classroom
    I will use Google Classroom as a way to upload your progress on the Khan Academy Website.

    Google Classroom Signup Information will be provided in class.
