• Syllabus for Math 3      Mr. Liu

    Grading Policy

    Course grades are based on assessments, classwork, homework, and projects. 70% of the grade is based on assessments and 30% is based on works, including classwork, homework, projects, and class participation. Grades will be updated periodically on Aeries.net.

         A    Greater than or equal to 90%

         B    Between 80% and 89%, inclusively

         C    Between 70% and 79%, inclusively

         D    Between 60% and 69%, inclusively

         F     Less than 60%



    Work habits grades are based on classroom behavior. Students are expected to complete all work, actively participate in class, and act in accordance with school and class rules (no hats, electronics, gum, food & drinks, etc). Failure to follow these rules will result in a grade of Needs Improvement (N) or Unsatisfactory (U). A variety of corrective measures will be used to maintain a successful learning environment. Inappropriate behavior will result in one or more of the following:

    1. Time out
    2. Detention
    3. Home contact
    4. Referral to the office
    5. Suspended from the class   



    If a student is absent on the day of an assessment, a make-up assessment will be taken on the day the student returns to the school. It is the student’s responsibility to request the make-up assessment upon their return to class. If a student fails to take a make-up assessment, a score of zero will be recorded for that assessment. To assign common assessments and comply with agreed grading policy among all Math 3 teachers, no retake wil be given for failing tests or quizzes. 



    Homework is due two days after the day it is assigned. Homework is graded on an effort basis. Credit is earned by copying the title & instructions, each problem, and showing step-by-step process of solving each problem. Incomplete homework will not be accepted. Extra credits will be given through answering certain math problems, participating in activities, or presenting projects, etc. Providing extra credits are to develp a responsible and respectful learning environment, and encourage students to try their very best. Students without maintaining responsible and respectful behaviors will disqualify themselves from receiving any extra credit.   


    Late work

    Excused absences will not count as late. Assignments incomplete upon entry to the class will not be accepted. Late assignment turned in will be given 50% credit.   



    Academic cheating will result in a score of ZERO on the assignment, or assessment. An unsatisfactory (U) will be entered for Citizenship and Work Habits for the semester. It is important to maintain academic honesty in all coursework. It is student’s responsibility to read the student handbook to become fully aware of the school philosophy and policy on this subject. Repeated disruptions or communications during an assessment will result in a score of Zero. Also, having any unauthorized materials out or present during an assessment will be considered cheating. This includes but is not limited to all personal electronic devices.
