For Enrichment, give this a try!

It is a Digital Breakout! Similar to an Escape Room, all of the information you need will be right in front of you. It is up to you to decide which clues you need for each lock.

Good luck and enjoy!

  • Statistics and Probability: Statistical Measures, Statistical Displays
Grading Policy:
Grading is based on test and quiz scores, and completion of homework.
  • Tests are worth 100 points

    • ​Bonus opportunities will be available for up to 10 points
    • Test corrections are accepted for up to half credit (vocabulary, true/false questions, and the bonus opportunities do not apply)
  • Quizzes are worth 25 - 50 points
  • Homework is worth 5 points per assignment

    • ​Homework that is 1 day late is worth 2.5 points. No points will be given for homework beyond 1 day late.
Homework Policy:
Homework is an integral part of a student's grade experience. Homework provides an opportunity to practice skills and/or be prepared for learning.
  • Students are responsible for writing homework in their assignment books everyday
  • Homework is assigned daily and on weekends
  • Homework is usually due the following school day and should be complete in order to receive full credit
  • Students that are absent should check our Google Classroom and are responsible for completing and turning in the assignment. Absent students will be allowed additional time to make up missed assignments
  • Parents and students are responsible for checking Genesis for their child’s progress and any missed homework assignments
