Welcome to 4th Grade Math/Science! There has never been a more exciting time to discover the world of math and science! You will discover a great deal more this school year. The expectation is that you“try on” the role of a mathematician and scientist in that you will employ critical thinking and problem solving skills.

Homework Grading Policy
💯 Homework Policy 💯
Students will receive homework daily. The student’s homework grade will be the average of the following and will be converted to a grade:
- Completed Assignment with effort (100%)
- Completed 1/2 assignment/lack effort (65%)
- Did not do (You have 1 day to hand it in and earn a 65 or you will get a zero.)
- Absent. You will have 2 days to hand in for full credit.
The weekly homework average will be recorded in Grade Speed.
Homework is checked for completeness. However, I will periodically grade it for accuracy and record in Grade Speed
Policy on Making up work
Late Work: Yes! I will accept late work. All late work will receive a 10% deduction per school day in the final grade. After 10 days (approximately two weeks), the student will earn a zero for the missing assignment.
Absent Work: Students will be required to complete assignments missed during their absence. The grade will be an incomplete (INC). If absent work is not received by the new due date, the late work policy will apply.
GradeSpeed: Please take the time to set up a parent’s GradeSpeed account. GradeSpeed is a great tool to assist you in monitoring your child’s grades daily, weekly, monthly, etc….
