o Labs

o Homework

* Will have a minimum of six grades in this category each six weeks

 

Make-Up Work

* If you are absent, you are responsible for getting make-up work. Students have a grace period equal to the number of days missed to turn in makeup work. Turn in make-up work as soon as possible so that you do not fall further behind.

* In most cases, quizzes and tests will need to be made up outside of class time.

* Any homework assigned prior to the absence must be turned in on the day you return.

* If you know ahead of time that you will be absent, ask for assignments prior to the absence.

 

Participation Grade

Participation grades will be taken on a daily basis. Each day counts worth five points towards your participation grade. Your daily participation grades will be averaged together and will count as one quiz grade.

* As long as you participate fully in class each day, you will receive five out of five points for the day (mainly from warm ups).

* If you do not participate in some of the class activities, then your participation grade for that day will be lowered. Participation grades can be affected by not participating in notes (head down or not following along), partner reviews/activities, class work (not working all period long, and then copying a neighbor’s work just before it is due), labs, dissections, rotation labs/activities, etc…

Anatomy students will need a composition book. We will do daily warm ups and notes. Please work to secure these now (may need two) as they tend to disappear quickly.  You will also need to bring a pack of colored pencils.
