Algebra 1 – Final Dates of Classes

MWF Section is done:  Wednesday, December 18, 11:59pm
TTh Section is done: Thursday, December 19, 11:59pm

To eliminate the holiday stress, you now have unlimited takes on all tests!

The higher grade always prevails.

If you finish all the work and you like the grade reported by mymathlab, then you no longer need to show up to class!  Isn’t that great?

Remember when the course is scheduled to be officially done, then that’s it.  The course shuts down, I submit the grades, and we get a divorce.  It’s over!

To give you an accurate reflection of what your grade is as of now, all work that should be completed, but isn’t, has been issued a zero.  Your grade average in mymathlab will reflect that.  Now of course if you do those homeworks, quizzes, and tests, whatever grade you get will overwrite the zero.  So get that work done!

 

PreAlgebra – Final Date of Class

Course is done: Wednesday, December 18, 11:59pm

I’ve decided in the spirit of the holidays to not require you to do the homework and quizzes.  Your grade will be the average of all the tests.  If you already completed most the quizzes and homework, then I will bump your grade up one letter grade from the test average!  Happy Holidays.

Now this means you must complete the 3 tests and final.

To eliminate the stress, you now have unlimited takes on these tests!

This means there is no reason for you to not take the exams.  The higher grade always prevails.

Withdrawal Form

If you haven’t been keeping up with the work, have a low grade average, or have missed a multitude of classes, please drop the class. I will issue a failing grade if your average is below a 60.

If the course has an associated lab, please drop that as well.

There is no extra work and no last minute scaling of grades.

Unless you have a medical issue that can be verified by the school, there are no extensions, extra work, or any other way for you to extend this semester.
