* Rounding off Table *
1.00 - 1.125 = 1.00
1.26 - 1.375 = 1.25
1.376 - 1.625 = 1.50
1.626 - 1.875 = 1.75
1.876 - 2.125 = 2.00
2.126 - 2.375 = 2.25
2.376 - 2.625 = 2.50
2.626 - 2.875 = 2.75
2.876 - 3.125 = 3.00
3.126 - 3.375 = 3.25
3.376 - 3.625 = 3.50
3.626 - 3.875 = 3.75
3.876 - 4.125 = 4.00
Grading System, Recording and Tasks1. The Grading System maybe changed, that is the corresponding percentage maybe adjusted depending on the number of projects or activities given. In such cases, the secretary of the class will be informed by yours truly.
2. The class secretary will take charge of recording everything, that is from attendance to exams. S/he will also be tasked to help me in computing her classmates' grades.
3. The class secretary will provide me copies of the records (from attendance to exams) and will be responsible typing out her classmates' names on the class record grade sheets template.
4. All students will submit 1/8 index card with 1x1 picture attached with the following information:
Course Yr. & Sec.:

Name of Scholarship Grant:
Parents' occupation and location:

5. Seating will be alphabetically arranged. The president of the class will provide me a seat plan.
6. Tardiness is not entertained in my class. Kindly come on time. Please see your student hand book and the course outline I will provide to you.
Examination1. Quizzes are given almost every meeting.
2. Failure to take an exam/ quiz will automatically be given a grade of 5, unless otherwise, the student could provide an excuse letter signed by their guardian and duly noted by the guidance officer. ID of the guardian should also be presented.
3. I do not give special projects or exams on missed activities unless otherwise there would be a valid reason.
4. Papers containing the same answers as with everybody else in the class will automatically be given 5.0 resulting to failing the course.
5. Students are required to submit their assignments, projects as well as other requirements on time. No adjustment for submission is given.
Grades1. In most cases, essay papers will be returned to the respective class after 2-4 days. In any case, it will still be the class secretary's task to record the results and eventually help me computing the grades.
2. For class presentation / reporting, it would be graded as follows:
Content - 30%
Style - 30%

Orderliness and Cleanliness:1. No littering in class. Before the class starts, everyone's expected to pick up litters on floor should there be any.
2. Celphone/s must be turned off or if expecting a very important call, kindly switch it to silent mode.
3. If a student is caught listening to an mp3 player or with whichever gadget in my class, while/ during class discussion/ activity, it will be confiscated. The student will immediately be sent to the guidance office.
4. Arrange the chairs.
