Calculus

Course Description:

Calculus is the mathematics of change.  While pre-calculus mathematics is quite static, calculus is more dynamic.  This year, we will study elements of differential and integral calculus in preparation for4 the Advanced Placement Calculus AM exam for college placement and credit.

Geometry

Course Description:

This course will include a study of the basic properties of plane figures.  Areas of study will include lines, planes, angles, polygons, transformations, proof, congruence and applications, size and similarity transformations, circles, areas and perimeters, surface area and volume.

Students will use inductive reasoning for pattern identification and then prove/disprove the statement using a deductive process.  Effective communication, both verbally and in written form, will be emphasized throughout the course.

Welcome to Math Class!

In our work together this year, we will strive toward your mathematics success.  With the help of your class team, you’ll engage in mathematics as active learners, intelligent problem solvers, and socially-aware students.

Contact Info:

Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns!  I check my email regularly, so the best contact is by emailing jodi.wheeler@sbobet เล่นฟรี www.misetsuku.com.

Relevance:

Math is the language of science and is essential to everyday activities.  As we enter the information age of the 21st century, we believe that every person will benefit from being able to communicate mathematically.

The goal of the Common Core Standards is to develop mathematically-literate students who:
  • Make sense of problems & persevere in solving them.
  • Use appropriate tools strategically.
  • Reason abstractly and quantitatively.                 
  • Attend to precision.
  • Construct viable arguments & critique others’ reasoning.   
  • Look for and make use of structure.
  • Model with mathematics.                                                        
  • Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

Electronic Use (refer to Policy Handout for full details):

I will denote specific times when a cell phone and other electronics can/cannot be utilized in the classroom.  When the whole class is on "Green Light", students are allowed to use their phones appropriately while working on their math task.  When the whole class is on "Red Light", students are required to put their phones, head phones, etc. away (completely out of sight) so that they aren't distracted.  This policy has built in incentives and consequences.  Students who receive more than one ticket will no longer benefit from the individual incentives offered in this class.

Ticket #1 = Warning
Ticket #2 = Email to Guardian
Ticket #3 = Discipline Referral to Administration

 

Materials:

Preparedness is expected daily.  Bring textbook, binder, pencil, and calculator. (We’ll primarily use TI-84+ calculators in class.)

Three Key Expectations:

 

ATTENDANCE – I strictly enforce the ELHS Attendance/Tardy Policy.

Validated Absences (Excused by your guardian)
 
  • It is your responsibility to check the “While You Were Out” binder or my teacher page and collect any missed work upon your return.  If you still have questions, ask for help!

  • You will have one day for each day of absence to make up class work and homework.

  • If you miss a test, you must complete the test within one week.
Unvalidated Absences (Not excused by your guardian)
 
  • You WILL NOT earn credit for any assignments missed the day of your unexcused absence; this includes missed quizzes and tests.

  • Tardies will be treated according to school policy.

ATTITUDE

  • Maintain a positive outlook: Everyone can learn math to the highest level.

  • Believe you can achieve!  Mistakes are valuable.  Math class is about learning not performing.

EFFORT

  • Just try.  Not try to be perfect.  Just try.
  • Assignments provide practice as you work with new math concepts. Anticipate homework daily.  These assignments are not long and are due the following day.  Grading will be based on effort and completion.

Need Help?

Check either the “While You Were Out” binder or my teacher page for assignments.  I will record daily assignments at the end of each school day.  If you need additional help or review, please schedule a time to meet with me during EXCEL, before school, or after school.

Assessments:

Student assessment will be both formative and summative:

Formative assessments allow me to check your understanding daily and provide feedback (i.e. bell work, in-class assignments, partner sharing, mastery quizzes).  Mastery quizzes evaluate essential concepts from a previous course or unit that you must “master” to understand the next concept in our course.  You will be required to re-take these quizzes until you demonstrate mastery, a score of 80% or better.

Summative assessments grade your accurate understanding of the content (i.e. in-class assignments, projects, unit quizzes, unit tests, and semester exams).  Unit quizzes are smaller assessments prior to a unit test. 

Tests will assess depth of understanding and require that students respond in multiple representations:

  • Symbolic
  • Numerical
  • Graphical
  • Verbal

Grading:

At the end of each marking period, all points will be totaled and a percentage will be computed.

Progress grades are determined by the traditional grading scale below (decimals do round up):                  

A     93-100                   C      73-76

A-   90-92                      C-    70-72

B+   87-89                     D+    67-69

B      83-86                     D      63-66

B-    80-82                     D-    60-62

C+   77-79                     E      0-59

Approximate Grade Distribution:

40%     Formative Assessments (see explanation above)

60%     Summative Assessments (see explanation above)

Semester Exams:

Your semester exams will be worth 10-15% of your cumulative semester grade.
