Grading Practices for Ms. Molina - As adopted in June 2019 by the PHS Math Department
Algebra 1 Regents
45% 35% -- 20%
Math 12- StepUP
45% 45% 10%
The Regents exam scores for Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 are not calculated into the final grade for the course, so each quarter is worth 25% of the final grade.
Algebra 1 students must take and pass the Regents exam as a graduation requirement.
Mathematics Department’s Homework Policy Rationale:
The Mathematics Department values homework because we believe students need to practice and need exposure to fluency with new concepts. Homework challenges students to self-evaluate their current understanding of the material. We believe independent assignments permit students to take ownership of their education. It forces them to be aware of their ease and struggles with the material and become advocates for themselves. Homework is also an excellent source of data collection.
Homework is assigned daily. Homework support exists daily through Call Back and the Elton Brand Academy.
