The following policies apply to ALL mathematics classes at Windsor High School.
- Every class will have a semester final exam in December and a full-year final exam in May/June.
- Appropriate class supplies and textbooks should be brought to every class session.
- All cell phones, music players, and other electronic devices should be turned off and out-of-sight during class.
- Late homework will receive reduced points.
- No food or drinks are allowed in class, although bottled plain water is allowed.
- Missed work or exams, due to excused absences, must be made up outside of regular class time. Specific arrangements must be made with the student's teacher as soon as the student returns to school. For days with unexcused absences, assignments and exams may lose all points.
- Grades are cumulative through the semester. Progress grades are not "averaged" for your semester grade. Through the progress periods, you are building towards your semester grade.
- Course grades are based as follows:
Algebra 1a, 1b & non-honors Geometry
70% Exams, quizzes, projects
30% Classwork, homework, in-class participation
Adv Algebra & Trigonometry/PreCalc
75% Exams, quizzes, projects
25% Classwork, homework, in-class participation
Honors Geometry, Statistics, AP Statistics & AP Calculus
80% Exams, quizzes, projects
20% Classwork, homework, in-class participation
- According to WHS Tardy Policy, excessive tardies in any Progress Period will reduce a student's grade. A tardy is defined as arriving in class after the bell rings, but less than 10 minutes late. The first two tardies will not affect a student's grade. The third tardy will result in lowering a student's grade by 1/3 mark. Each additional tardy will continue to lower a student's grade by 1/3 mark. For example, assume a student has a current grade of C+. On the third tardy, the student would have a C; on the fourth tardy the grade is now C-; on the fifth tardy, the student's grade has dropped to a D+.
