    COURSE SYLLABUS AND CLASSROOM GUIDELINES

     

    Teacher:   Mr. Woods                                       School Year:   2020/2021

     

    Department:   Mathematics                              Course:  INTEGRATED 3 ACCL

     

     

    A.   KEY CONCEPTS OF COURSE:

     

    The integrated 3 accelerated course concentrates on the following concepts: functions, transformations of graphs, solving inequalities, conics, exponentials and logarithms, polynomials,  trigonometry, rational expressions, complex numbers, and introduction to calculus.

     

    B.   GENERAL PLAN FOR COURSE:

      The class structure is as follows: a do now (review problem), correcting homework, classwork where students will work in pairs solving problems together based upon the given objective, closure and assigned homework. 

     

     

    C.   COURSE REQUIREMENTS:

     

    Students are to complete all class work assignments, but class work is not collected.  The purpose of class work is for students to practice the new material in order to complete the homework assignments successfully.  Homework is given every night including weekends.    Students are to show all their work in a neat and organized way and all homework is to be completed in pencil. Homework will be checked for accuracy in class, and will be randomly collected.

     

    Students will be expected to always review their notes as part of their homework. Collected homework that is missed due to an excused absence must be turned into me the next class period.

     

    These are the recommended supplies:  paper, pencil, book, highlighter, and it is highly recommended to have a scientific calculator.  Students are expected to ask questions during the lesson.

     

    Quiz/Test Make Up Policy

     

    Here is my new quiz/test make up policy:

    • a quiz or test missed has to be made up during enrichment, and this applies as long as the absence has been cleared 

     

    A student caught cheating on a homework assignment, quiz or test will receive a zero on that assignment and will not be able to make up the assignment.

     

    All assignments (homework, quizzes, tests) are to be turned in on time. If a student is having trouble with the internet, the student must notify me by email before the due date of the assignment.

     

    D.   TEACHER AVAILABILITY:

     

    I am available for extra help enrichment and upon special request.   Parents can contact me at 818-248-8324, extension 1230, or via e-mail at gwoods@gusd.net. 

     

     

    E.   TEXTBOOK

     

    Stewart: Precalculus

     

     

     

     

    F.   ATTENDANCE EXPECTATIONS:

     

    Students are expected to attend class daily, and to be in their seats when the bell rings.   I will call home if a student has three tardies. On the fourth tardy, the student will be referred to his/her grade counselor for further consequences.

     

     

    G.   BEHAVIOR EXPECTATIONS:

     

    Discipline is imperative to learning.   The purpose of my discipline strategy is for my students to be held accountable and responsible for their behavior, and for my students to see and believe in their potential.   I expect students to respect me and each other.   If a student disrespects me in front of the class, the student will be expected to apologize to me in front of the class.   Students are expected to do their own work.   This includes homework assignments, quizzes, and tests.   If a student is caught cheating, the student will receive a zero on the assignment and the student will be referred to an administrator. Cell phones and any other electronic devices are to be turned off and inside   backpacks when students are in class. I will confiscate any electronic device that is being used without permission.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    H.   ASSESSMENTS:

     

    Students earn points from homework, chapter or unit quizzes and tests, and the final exam.  Homework makes up 10% of the grade, quizzes make up 25% of the grade, tests make up 55%, and the final exam makes up 10% of the grade.   

     

    I.   GRADING RUBRIC:

     

    Students earn their grades by receiving points.   Students may earn points through completing homework, quizzes/tests, and through the final exam.   Below is my grading scale.

     

    90 - 100% of total points - A

    80-89% of total points - B

    70-79% of total points – C

    60 –69% of total points - D

    59% of total points or below - F

     

    GRADES ARE NOT ROUNDED UP AT THE END OF THE SEMESTER!
