Course Syllabus

Course Expectations:

Be PREPARED…

  • Come to class on time each day with your binder, pencil(s) and calculator.
  • Take out your homework when you sit down.

Be ENGAGED…

  • Take notes daily in class.
  • Complete homework every night as assigned.
  • Be attentive and courteous when your classmates or teacher are speaking.
  • Show all work in solutions. This is helpful when doing homework problems, worksheets, not just on assessments. Writing out the process steps as a part of solutions helps learning. When written explanations are required for solution, complete sentences are to be used.

Be PROACTIVE…

  • Ask one classmate and check your notes before you ask the teacher for help
  • ASK questions if concepts or ideas are not understood. No topic related question is too unimportant to ask. Remember, the only bad question is the one not asked.
  • Seek extra help. Ask when you don’t understand something. Don’t wait until “nothing makes sense”.  I am available before and after school on most days but please let me know before to make sure I’m there.
  • Use the math lab (link is on home page): Google Meet: mathlab2021. There are teachers there to help you with any questions you have!
  • Check answers and work on Canvas.

Be PROMPT…

  • Come to class on time each day
  • Turn in assignments on their date due, during class. If you are absent, it is your responsibility to make up any missed assignments, quizzes, and/or tests as well as obtaining any handouts or missed notes from someone who was present. Please tell me in advance when you want to meet with me to discuss your make-up work.
