This course is designed to be flexible, catering to student needs and interests as much as possible. This class will focus on the AP benchmarks found at this site.
Students will be graded on class projects, open book tests/quizzes 40%, class use (participation, technology use, and attendance) 40%, and their final 20%. ANY involvement in plagiarism (including someone using your work) results in an irreversible 0% on the assignment. Late work will lose value overtime:
|Days late||Credit lost|
The only exception to this is students with previously excused absences; in which case they will have days equal to their days absent to makeup work. Students should make every effort to use the Internet/email during an absence to keep up with the work.
Late tests must be made up no later than 3 school days after it was administered. The student is responsible for scheduling a day with his/her parents and Mr. Butka. After 3 days the test is graded as a 0%.
Extra credit may be given to students who work beyond assignment expectations. Individual extra credit assignments wil not be allowed or assigned.
