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

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, activities 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:

3. I DO NOT give special projects or exams to students who missed activities unless a valid reason could be provided.
4. CHEATING in my class automatically gives the student a grade of 5.00 in my subject. Also, assignments, papers or project having the same content (exact replica) as with everybody else in the class will automatically be given 5.0 resulting to failing the course.
5. PLAGIARISM equals 5.00 in my subject. Know how to cite your reference materials.
6. Students are required to submit their assignments, projects as well as other requirements on time. No adjustment of date 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%
Ability to answer the question - 40%
Orderliness and Cleanliness:1. No littering in the classroom. Before the class starts, everyone's expected to pick up litters on floor should there be any. Treat your classroom as your very own home.
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 using whichever gadget in my class while during a class discussion/ activity, it will be confiscated. The student will immediately be sent to the guidance office and also asked to bring the guardian over at school.
4. Chairs should be arranged properly.
5. Students are given 10-15 minutes allowance before class starts. This is to give them ample time to prepare for their presentation or have their meals.
