Algebra III

Course Description

  • Algebra III is a course meant to prepare students for higher level math courses such as College Algebra or Calculus. We will review many of the concepts from Algebra II while working to build strong thinking and reasoning skills which are necessary to succeed not only in college, but also in most careers.  We will see how the topics you’ve seen so far in math come together to make connections to the world outside the classroom.  

Personal Grading Policies

  • Activity Grades

    • Practice will be assigned on via Google Classroom. This will serve as the activity grade(s) for the unit. 
      • Due at 8 AM the day of the test for the given unit
      • Can be turned in after the due date before the last day of the term (date specified by me) for up to 85% credit
    • Quizzes will be given at least once each unit. 

    Test Grade Policy

    Unit Tests will be given at the end of each unit.

    1. Test Corrections
      • You will correct your test on blank paper following the guidelines I give you. All corrections will earn HALF CREDIT back to your test.
      • Due 1 week after your test is handed back to you
    2. Reteach/Retest
      • Eligibility for Reteach/Retest
        • Everyone gets 1 per nine weeks 
        • Raw score of 50% or lower 
      • The only way to get out of reteaching is to complete your test corrections for no credit. This shows you understand the mistakes you made and do not need me to explain anything again. 
      • Reteaching will consist of going over any questions from the test that you still do not understand and then completing practice problems together if time allows.
      • Retests are always short answer, do not expect an easier test for retesting.
