Grading: I practice a growth mindset approach to mathematics, this approach encourages students to learn from feedback and mistakes. An error analysis form is used to have students analyze mistakes and correct them for full credit. Grades are posted in Jupiter Grades under three categories which are weighted as follows. Classwork 30%. Exit Tickets 30% Tests and Quizzes 40%
House points: Students have been divided into 4 houses based on famous mathematicians: (William Playfair, Ada Lovelace, Leonhard Euler, Emmy Noether). Houses compete against each other for the House Cup and to earn class rewards. You can earn points for your house by exceeding behavioral expectations, working as a team, completing extra work, practicing growth mindset habits. You will lose points for behaviors that detract from learning.
Student work is corrected and feedback is provided to students and parents through Jupiter grades. Mistakes are opportunities for learning so students may complete an error analysis worksheet and receive full credit. Click on Jupiter Grades to go directly to the login page.
