B) Evaluation and Assessment
        On each report your percentage will be based on all the work completed since the beginning
of the course (on a cumulative basis). Each unit will consist of assignments, quizzes, and a test.

C) Weighting of Marks
*This is your course mark, worth 80% of your final grade (the other 20% is your provincial)
       -Homework, and assignments                                    15%
       -Quizzes                                                      25%

D) Assignments
       Late assignments will receive a penalty of 10% per day to a maximum of 50%. Once all
assignments have been graded and handed back, a late assignment cannot be handed in (unless
modified and cleared by the teacher). The final deadline for homework submission is the unit test.
Since the answers are readily available in your textbook, the most an assignment will be grade for
answers only work is 10%, you must show all work for full marks. Periodically you will be
expected to take home a missing items report to have signed and returned. No new marks will be
recorded until this form is brought back signed.

E) Necessary Supplies

         scientific or graphing calculator
         Graph Paper

F) Attendance
       It is expected that you will attend all classes and arrive on time. If you are absent, then you
have to bring a note that I can keep a copy of. No work will be accepted until I have a copy of the
note excusing your absence. You are expected to complete all assigned work whether you are
absent or not. Work can only be made up when accompanied by a proper note excusing your
absence. If you are late, you may be required to wait outside the room until you are let in so that
you do not disrupt the class. When you are late, you stand to miss the warm up work which is part
of your class work mark. Time that is missed by being late will be made up at a future time at twice
the time missed during class.
