6 1.COURSE: Because this is an advanced course, the amount of work is significantly more, the pace is faster, and the difficulty of homework is increased. 2.BOOK: Larson-Hostetler: Algebra and Trigonometry 6th Edition 3. SUPPLIES : 1. Two RINGED w/pocket notebooks; one is required for taking notes in class and one is for homework. Notes will be collected and graded at the end of each chapter. Homework will also be graded. (A spiral notebook is NOT acceptable, nor is handing in papers stapled together) A GRAPHING calculator, preferably TI-83+ or the TI-84+. The TI-83+ or TI-84+ can be rented through the school. During some tests, students will be given a TI-83+ (with memory cleared) to use. Algebra Two/Trig honors

7 4. HOMEWORK: An assignment sheet will be given at the beginning of each chapter. Usually, one assignment per day is given. The assignments are not set in stone and adjustments are made as needed. On the day following an assignment, questions will be answered. At this time students should correct mistakes they have made in their homework. There will not be time to go over every problem each day. Students may also call me at home any time before 10 PM to receive help in solving a problem. Homework will be graded for completeness and correctness. There is a high correlation between doing homework and higher test scores. Assignments will be kept current on my web page: (or go to the ORHS homepage ( and click on academic departments) If you are absent, check your assignment sheet or your teacher’s assignment page for the assignment. Also, you are responsible for the notes given in class that day

8 5. GRADING: A point system is used. Points may be earned from tests (usually 100 points), quizzes (10-50 pts), notes, homework and worksheets. If a student does not maintain a C average in the class, a recommendation will be made for the student to transfer to regular Algebra Two/trig. Also, a student who does not pass the trigonometry part of the course with a C average will NOT receive Algebra Two/trig credit. Instead the student will receive regular Algebra Two credit and will have to either take trigonometry in summer school or take Algebra Three/Trig next year. 6. POINT SHEET: Students are required to keep a point sheet which keeps track of the number of points a student has earned and the number of points possible. Dividing the points earned by the points possible calculates the percent and their grade at any given time. This will be kept in the front pocket of their notes folder. Parents/guardians: look at these periodically, PLEASE!

9 7. EXTRA HELP: Appointments can be made for extra help either before school, during lunch, or after school. Several teachers also tutor in the morning and/or after school. Also, the National Honor Society provides tutoring. If a student needs help, we will find time somehow! 8. WEB Site: The Math Department web site: has links to your teacher. The teacher web page has class information and policies and a link to a class assignment page with daily assignments and other class information. If you have any questions or problems, please feel free to call me at 425-9675 (school) or 483-1919 (home). Or, email me at
