Course Requirements for AP Calculus AB and Calculus Honors

  • September 5, 2022

    Dear AP Calculus AB Students,

    Welcome back to school!   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.  The calculator that we use is the TI-84+ CE.  It is recommended that you have a calculator in the TI-84+ family of calculators.  Please follow all the rules for social distancing, face masks (if mandated), 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 every two weeks. The 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. Quizzes are usually announced : ) 
    • There will be at least two major tests and several quizzes per marking period. Make-up tests and/or quizzes must be completed within one week after your return to class. Make-up work may be scheduled during the common period or after school.
    • 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:

               70% … … … Tests and 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.  Video lessons and examples for the current chapter will also be posted there.  We will utilize the Google classroom, the albert.io site, the Khan Academy site, and the College Board Classroom as well.  Extra help is available by appointment during the common period or after school.  Please share this information with your parents.  I am looking forward to an exciting year of mathematical adventures!  If you have any questions at any time, I can be reached at mcoyle@jacksonsd.org .

    Thank you!

    Mrs. Coyle
