COURSE SYLLABUS AND CLASSROOM GUIDELINES
Teacher: Mr. Woods School Year: 20182019
Department: Mathematics Course: Algebra 2AB

Algebra is a branch of mathematics that uses letters and symbols. Algebra 2A is a review of Algebra 1 and introduces topics such as exponential and log functions, right triangle trigonometry, and other topics.
 GENERAL PLAN FOR COURSE:
Daily objectives and homework are always posted in the classroom. Homework assignments are also posted on the school web site. The daily lessons follow this structure: a review problem (known as the do now), review of homework, instruction on a new lesson, checking for understanding then guided practice.
 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.
Students are recommended to have the following supplies: paper, pencil, book, highlighter, and 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:
∙ the first quiz or test missed will be dropped as the student’s lowest score at the end of the semester as long as the absence has been cleared
 the second time a student misses a quiz or test, he/she will be given a different quiz or test that must be made up during enrichment only as long as the absence has been cleared
 if a student misses a third quiz or test, then a parent conference must take place with me before the student can make up the quiz or test

 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.
 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 20 percent of the grade, quizzes/tests make up 60 percent of the grade, and the final exam makes up 20 percent 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
8089% of total points  B
7079% of total points – C
65 –69% of total points  D
64% of total points or below  F

CLARK MAGNET HIGH SCHOOL
COURSE SYLLABUS AND CLASSROOM GUIDELINES
Teacher: Mr. Woods School Year: 20172018
Department: Mathematics Course: Algebra 2AB
 KEY CONCEPT OF COURSE:
Algebra is a branch of mathematics that uses letters and symbols. Algebra 2A is a review of Algebra 1 and introduces topics such as exponential and log functions, right triangle trigonometry, and other topics.
 GENERAL PLAN FOR COURSE:
Daily objectives and homework are always posted in the classroom. Homework assignments are also posted on the school web site. The daily lessons follow this structure: a review problem (known as the do now), review of homework, instruction on a new lesson, checking for understanding then guided practice.
 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 checked for completion or collected.
Unannounced homework quizzes will be given at least once every other week, and will cover chapter concepts. Students will be expected to always review their notes as part of their homework. Homework quizzes will be made up during enrichment only, and have to be completed within two days of the excused absence. There will be no make up for homework quizzes missed if the absence is not cleared. Collected homework that is missed due to an excused absence must be turned into me the next class period.
Students are recommended to have the following supplies: paper, pencil, book, highlighter, and a graphing calculator. Students are expected to ask questions during the lesson.
Quiz/Test Make Up Policy
Here is my new quiz/test make up policy:
∙ the first quiz or test missed will be dropped as the student’s lowest score at the end of the semester as long as the absence has been cleared
 the second time a student misses a quiz or test, he/she will be given a different quiz or test that must be made up during enrichment only as long as the absence has been cleared
 if a student misses a third quiz or test, then a parent conference must take place with me before the student can make up the quiz or test
 TEACHER AVAILABILITY:
I am available for extra help during lunch, enrichment and upon special request. Parents can contact me at 8182488324, extension 1230, or via email at gwoods@gusd.net.
 TEXTBOOK
Algebra 2. Holt, Publisher. Chapter booklets.
 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.
 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, homework quizzes, chapter or unit quizzes and test, and the final exam. Homework and homework quizzes make up 20 percent of the grade, quizzes/tests make up 60 percent of the grade, and the final exam makes up 20 percent 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
8089% of total points  B
7079% of total points – C
65 –69% of total points  D
64% of total points or below  F
