Homework on Khan Academy

-Calculated (almost) every day

Percentage grade of work time on Khan Academy for that day compared to available work time, usually 40 minutes. Time available is sometimes adjusted because of internet speed and class time available.

 

Percent of Khan Academy work that is either on your one declared PreAlgebra topic or on any Algebra 1 topic that you have not moved to Practiced level yet, times your average daily grade for Time on KA.

Note - if you have moved a topic to "Practiced Level" and you still keep doing it a lot, the additional time will not count.

Average Time on KA grade % of work On Target Focus Grade
100% 100% 100%
75% 100% 75%
75% 75% 56%
80% 80% 64%

 

Note: Other topics may come up in Mastery Challenge questions and you're supposed to answer them there, but do not choose them as practice topics.

BE SURE TO DELETE FROM YOUR HOME PAGE ANY MISSIONS OTHER THAN PRE-ALGEBRA AND ALGEBRA ONE.

Each written assignment is worth 10 points.

Forgetting to bubble your student ID number correctly will cost you 3 points per assignment.

Excused absences will exempt you from written assignments that cannot be made up in class.

•Spend at least 25 minutes of time outside of school hours (3 pm - 8 am) on Khan Academy, watching videos and/or practicing skills every week. (5 minutes a day on school days works best for many people)

Note: You may now do your KA homework in my classroom during lunch on Monday, Thursday or Friday.

Please note -
1) Because of limitations to the system, I cannot give you homework credit for work done during school hours, such as during nutrition, lunch, or during other classes, except if done in my classroom at Lunch on Monday, Thursday or Friday.
2) Mastery Challenges may only be done in class.
