Google Class


















  • The first time you join a class you will not have access to the videos (in EDpuzzle) until after your teacher has confirmed your access on the teacher side. This will be manually done and your teacher should send you a confirmation that the “handshake” has been completed on the teacher side before you can see the assignments posted on your google classroom site (after you refresh the page)


  • One last thing is that even after this “handshake” is completed, you often get a popup asking you to select “Google or Edmodo” … pick the Red “google” box, and then you be prompted to Accept the license agreement. After that the link should be transparent

Welcome to the new school year

The first week of school will be used to get everyone to establish a healthy classroom environment and make sure that everyone has access to the technology needed to do the assignments and to understand the "flipped classroom" and how to find the assignments and grades in schoolloop.

The textbooks will be issued by Friday along with the first textbook assignment.  The goal should be for all students to have practiced completing assignments prior to the actual curriculum


Major things to be completed:

  • Register in schoolloop -  this is just a reminder for all Freshman and new students.  If you registered last year, it should still work.
  • Have a Google Classroom account
  • Have a textbook
  • Have access to the online textbook 

It is suggested that you double check that you are getting the grades you expect for the assignments to date.


Subject: Grades

Date: 10/27/17
With the onset of report cards I want to address some common questions.

(1) Grades are cumulative through the entire semester.  Whatever grade you get for the quarter will be added to the second quarter grades and accumulate for the entire semester grade.  After the semester ends, THEN your grade goes back to a "clean slate" for the next semester.

(2) The grades in Schoolloop are round to the second decimal place and will not be adjusted once the last class for the grading period has past except for special circumstances where errors were made in the gradebook. 

Please refrain from asking for an (79, 69 etc.) to be rounded up.  My gradebook rounds to the hundredth position and if you want to stay in a certain grade level you must meet the criteria established in my syllabus.

(3) The first quarter grades are for school work completed thru 10/31, so whatever grade that is posted before I checkout that night will be the one to be used on your report card.

(4) I do not do contracts for quarter grades.  Please refer to the syllabus for contract criteria at the end of the semester.  All contracts are at the teachers’ discretion.

(5) At this point I have not established any specific extra credit assignments.  I am in the process of making adjustments for students participating in Math contests on campus, but extra credit normally will not exceed a 3% bump in your grade.

(6) The only grade that is permanent is your final semester grade with the exception of "I" grades which by definition are "Incomplete".
