Muscle Shoals Middle School
Pre-Algebra/ Algebra 1
Students will earn class grades by completing homework, quizzes, and tests.
65% - Test average
20% - Quiz average
15% - Homework average
Homework will be assigned almost every day so that you can practice what you are learning. The homework will be checked by either completion or accuracy. If the homework is checked for completion a grade of 0%, 50%, or 100% will be given based on how much of the homework has been completed. YOU MUST SHOW WORK!!!! 100% completion will receive a grade of "100." Less than 100% completion but more than 50% completion will receive a grade of "50." Less than 50% completion will receive a grade of "0.” Credit is based on teacher discretion. Every fifth zero will result in a write-up. Homework may also be graded based on accuracy at the teacher's discretion. Homework graded based on accuracy does not apply to the work policy. Late work will only be accepted due to an excused absence. This policy will start over at the beginning of each grading period.
