FYI Regarding Calculator Use
7th Level Math: Calculators are not used in this course.
7th PreAlgebra, 8th PreAlgebra, Algebra, and Geometry: Graphing calculators are used throughout these courses. The TI84 Plus is the recommended calculator, and all calculators in the TI83 and TI84 families are compatible. Students are not required to purchase a graphing calculator as calculators are available for student use at school. Owning a graphing calculator can be helpful for completing some assignments outside of class. Students who do not own a graphing calculator are welcome to use the school calculators during Advisory, beforeschool tutorials, or PAWS tutorials after school in order to complete the assignments which incorporate calculator use.

McCJHS Math Department Rules 
All work must be shown: No work = No credit. 
Late work is not accepted. If you do not have it in class when it is due, it will be a zero. 
If a project (major grade) is turned in late, 10 points will be deducted from the grade per school day for a maximum of 5 days. After the 5th day late, the grade will be a zero. Projects are typically due within a oneweek window, therefore it is usually due on Monday but accepted until that Friday. Missing school on a Friday does not excuse the student from the 10point penalty because they had the opportunity to turn it in earlier that week. 
Grading for each Nine Weeks for all levels of math:
 60% Major Grades (tests and projects)
 20% Daily Grades (class work and homework)
 20% Quizzes (also includes lab activities)

Grading for each Semester: 7th Grade Math and 7th/8th PreAlgebra
 45% First Nine Weeks
 45% Second Nine Weeks
 10% Semester Exam
PreAP AlgebraI and Geometry (High School Credit)
 42.5% First Nine Weeks
 42.5% Second Nine Weeks
 15% Semester Exam

 Using “cheat sheets,” textbooks, any type of electronic device, or writing answers on any part of the body or garments during a test or quiz.
 Using any assessments from a previous year.
 Telling another student in a different class period what the test or quiz questions are, OR receiving such information from someone else.
