Grades for 6th Six Weeks:
Each week you will receive three grades. The two assignments in the lesson plans with an asterisk (*) are graded. To receive credit, work must be shown along with your answers. This work allows me to give partial credit. The third grade is a participation grade for doing all the assignments for the week, including the Zoom meeting. See below for more information on Zoom.
All assignments are due 8:00 AM the following Monday. You receive lesson plans on Sunday and have a full week to complete. Anything not completed or submitted will be entered as a zero in the grade book. I will enter grades on Monday or Tuesday of each week. You have one extra week to complete/submit late assignments. After that extra week, I will update your grades for late work. Please check parent portal to see your grades and average.
Zoom Meetings: 
Zoom meetings are mandatory unless noted otherwise in lesson plans. They count towards your participation grade. I will use Zoom meetings for announcements, to answer questions, and to do examples for each week's lessons. Please have a pencil, paper, and previous assignements/work to use during the zoom meeting. Extra zoom meetings can be requested by student as needed. I will post an invite with a link in Remind either the day before or the morning of the scheduled zoom meeting. The times/days for zoom meetings may change from week to week. Use current lesson plans to see when you are having a zoom meeting. Excuses for missing Zoom meetings will be dealt with on an individual basis and not all absences from zoom will be excused. 
Lessons for Each Week:
 Lessons are available as a PDF in the school app and on the home page. Please read carefully and use the links. 
Geometry and Algebra II - working in; contact me or the school for username and password

 Submitting Work:
 Send a clear picture of work through Remind or in an email (needs to contain a subject with a name I will recognize). Work needs to be neat and legible, written with a dark pencil or pen, and answers circled. Try to get all your answers on one page. Remember to show work!
