7 AMDMIn the following slides we will answer these and other questions you may have.
8 AMDMWhat is AMDM?Advance Mathematical Decision Making
9 AMDM is: a fourth Math credit; a new Georgia State graduating requirement.a new and different kind of class.a course to apply all you prior Math class knowledge.probably the hardest class you have ever taken.
10 Should I be enrolled in AMDM? AMDM has certain PRE-Requisites
11 AMDM Pre-requisites Need to have passed Algebra II If you have not passed Algebra II, please see me at the end of the class and consult your counselor for alternate class enrollment and possible schedule changes.

14 What happens if my work is not of the highest quality? AMDMWhat happens if my work is not of the highest quality?There are certain student expectations…
15 Expectations You will participate. You will work in teams and/or individually.You will be accountable to your class and your teams.You will share and challenge.You will prepare and present written and oral presentations to the class.You will always be on task.You will produce high quality work.
16 ExpectationsWe expect students in this class to reach beyond a high school level.All assignments that are turned in must be neat, well-organized, and of the HIGHEST QUALITY.How and why your (team) work is created is KEY in this class. You will be required to COMPLETELY justify all work in both written and verbal form (no questions left unanswered).Everyone on the team is responsible and accountable to each other and themselves.Absences and tardiness will negatively affect you and your team’s grade.If you are absent, you are responsible for any notes and/or assignments that you missed – get these from your team.
17 ProceduresYou will leave your binder and any team work in the classroom (unless otherwise noted by the instructor).Too many absences/tardies will result in being fired from your team (let me assure you that you will need/want help from you classmates).Since many grades will be nontraditional, make-up work will be decided at the discretion of your teacher.
