Welcome to Mrs. Grodin's website! Here is a summary of my rules and grading policy:

**Dear Parents/Guardians, **
Your child is in my math class this school year. The supplies needed for a successful year are paper, pencil, laptop

**, **three
ring binder, and graphing calculator. (A calculator will be provided
if a student does not have one.) If a student is absent the day of a
test, the test will be taken upon returning to class. The lesson missed
will be the students responsibility to learn.

**Guidelines for class:**
**1. **No late work is accepted.

**2. **No extra credit is given, except for extra credit problems on a graded paper.

** 3. **District policy allows one day for each day absent in order to make up work.

**4. **I do NOT make up quizzes when a student is absent. The next major test will fill

in for the quiz provided the absence is excused.

**5**.

** **All work must be shown, or no credit will be given.

** 6. ** Homework will be graded.

**7. **Students may use a graphing calculator upon my discretion.

**8. ****Discipline:** Verbal Warning, Student/Teacher conference, Parent/Teacher Conference, Referral

**9. ****Grades are averaged according to the following percentages:**
**Pre-AP Grading Scale**
