    Zeros There will be no homework that will be given the grade of zero.  The lowest grade that can be earned is a 50.  This is a grading philosophy that will allow students to always be able to keep a satisfactory grade in my class.  This does not apply to tests as a student should get more than a 50 on a test. 

    Make Up  Any test can be retaken for a better grade.  Make up tests are only offered in the mornings.  A student can retake any test as many times as they want.
