This year in **Accelerated Algebra 7**, we will be covering the following topics: Expressions; equations and inequalities; basic statistics; linear, quadratic and exponential functions; Pythagorean theorem; 3-D volume and surface area; and Systems of equations and inequalities. We will be using Connected Mathematics 3 textbooks throughout the year.

**Grades are based upon mastery of the material.**

**Assignments/classwork: 5% of total grade. ** *Assignments are graded on completion only. Generally a 2 means that is was completely done including grading the assignment. 1 means only partially complete. 0 means that it was not handed in.*

**Quizzes**: **5% of total grade.** *Quizzes can be revised for up to 90% prior to the test on the unit. Quizzes are treated as “practice tests” so students can identify areas of mastery and areas in need of further study. Revisions are strongly encouraged for all students so that they do not make the same mistakes on future assessments.*

** Tests****: 90% of total grade***. Tests are generally at the end of the unit after quizzes and practice. Tests can only be revised for up to 70% using the pink correction sheet. Mastery work is required for students to earn a grade higher than 70%.*
