WELCOME TO ALGEBRA 2/TRIGONOMETRY Mr. Turner Room 624
IN THIS COURSE WE WILL BE STUDYING THE FOLLOWING TOPICS: Factoring & Rational Expressions Radicals & Complex Numbers Equations Solving Quadratic Equations & Inequalities Properties of Quadratics Relations & Functions Transformations Exponents & Logarithms Trigonometry Sequences & Series Statistics, Regressions & Probability
WHAT THE STUDENTS NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL: 2” 3-Ring Binder Scientific Calculator Graphing calculator may be used, but is not required (TI83-plus is recommended) Writing Utensil Graph Paper & Loose Leaf Paper
MY EXPECTATIONS OF THE STUDENTS: Be respectful Be here on time Be prepared Homework done and out, ready to be checked Maximum effort
NO TEXTBOOK: We do not have a textbook. Packets distributed by unit Kept in a 2” binder Students will be assigned homework out of the packets daily.
HOW ARE THE STUDENTS ASSESSED? Daily homework – This is checked daily and 1 point is deducted from their final marking period average for every homework assignment not done. Quizzes – per marking period counting as 40% of their grade. Unit Tests – taken at the end of each unit counting as 60% of their grade. Their overall marking period grade is just the sum of the two percentages. Regents exam at the end of the year counts as 20% of their overall average for the year.
