Pre-Calculus Honors Course Requirements
Dear Pre-Calculus Honors Students,
In order to make this year a success, I ask your help in the following areas:
- Please come to class on time, prepared to work. Bring with you your covered textbook, a notebook, pencil, graphing calculator, and of course, your chrome book. Please follow all the rules for social distancing, face masks, and hand washing so the classroom is a safe learning environment for all who enter.
- Class notes are to be recorded each day and organized according to chapters. A notebook quiz or test may be given, challenging you to use your notes and answer specific questions relating to the material covered.
- Homework will be checked daily, and recorded in the portal as each chapter is completed. The conscientious completion of homework is essential in attaining proficiency and understanding in this class. Therefore, missing or late homework is unacceptable.
- Quizzes may be given unannounced at any time.
- There will be at least two major tests per marking period. Make-up tests must be scheduled in a timely manner, and may be given in the classroom or remotely.
- Projects may be assigned each marking period, and various methods of assessment will be utilized. Projects will be weighted by points, depending upon the topic and complexity of the assignment.
- The marking period grade will be determined as follows:
40% … … … Tests
30% … … … Quizzes
15% … … … Homework
15% … … … Class participation and group work within the class
All work will be posted on the Liberty class page for your convenience. We will utilize the Khan Academy classroom, our albert.io classroom, and the google classroom for assignments and tests. Classroom resources (lesson videos and additional examples) are posted to the class page on the Liberty site, under the Student Resources tab. Our calendar is located under the Calendar tab. Make-up tests and/or quizzes may be completed in person in the Math Lab, remotely after school, or may be scheduled as an on-line assessment. Extra help will also be available in the Math Lab during the common period.
I am looking forward to an exciting year, and hope to see you in September.
The TI-84 Plus CE is the district's recommended graphing calculator. We will be distributing calculators to students who need them in class during the first week of the semester.
