Hey there! It's Mr. Brendan Niggemeier here, but you can call me Mr. B (or anything else really that wouldn't offend me). I will be your instructor this year for Algebra 1! This is our class website, which will play a pivotal role in you succeeding in this class. I invite you all to explore our site as much as you can before our first day of classes and see what you can find out!
On our first day, I will be going over our website with you guys and answering any questions you may have after exploring it yourselves! I am very excited to meet all of you!
Why Math Is IMPORTANT
While some may say math is useless because they're never going to need to know this stuff in their future, here's a good example of someone who now will likely disagree with you. Did you know the answer before the end of the video?
|Tests (4 tests and a final)||50% of final grade|
|Homework||20% of final grade|
|Attendance||20% of final grade|
|Participation||10% of final grade|
For the tests portion of grading, if you receive a bad grade on one of you four tests, the grade you receive on your final can replace the low test grade if it is higher. For example, if you get a 65% on one of your tests, and an 88% on your final, you may use the final to replace your 65%. In this scenario the 65% changes to an 88% and you still keep the 88% on your final.
