GRADING SCALE FOR PRE- CALCULUS PROGRESS REPORT: -Interim progress report available at the end of each 4th week. GRADING SYSTEM The students’ grades will be based on the following system: A = 100 - 90 Outstanding progress A = 3.50 and above B = 89 - 80 Above average progress B = 2.50 - 3.49 C = 79 - 70 Average progress C = 1.50 - 2.49 D = 69 - 60 Lowest acceptable progress D = 1.00 - 1.49 F = 59 - 0 Failure F = 0.00 - 0.99 I0 Incomplete I0 CLASSWORK:- 1 GRADE; QUIZ:- 1 GRADE; TEST:- 2 GRADES
. SUPPLIES REQUIRED FOR PRE- CALCULUS One 2.0 three-ring binder Four dividers labeled: ‘Class Requirements, Daily Activities, Bell Ringer, and Journal. Lined and plain paper ( many, many packs). One graphing calculator (TI-83 Plus Calculator or TI-89 Graphing Calculator. Many pencils (#2). One graph book. Items will be checked the second week of school. These items must be in class every day.
WHAT DO WE DO IN THIS MATHEMATICS CLASS? One Florida Standards for Mathematical Practices expected all students in a Pre-Calculus class to be mathematical proficient!! Based on the Florida Standards Initiative, mathematics teachers are expecting our students to be Mathematically proficient. Students are expected to start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. They also make conjectures, build a logical progression of statements to explore the truth of their conjectures. In other words, you have to justify the solutions to your answers by creating a coherent representation of a problem identifying relationships among quantities and their units (work must be shown). CLASSWORK and HOMEWORK WILL BE CHECKED for every competency covered in this class. Home work will be collected and checked randomly. Work must be shown for each test item. NO WORK!! NO CREDIT!! A number grade of 0 will be awarded for no work.
WEBSITES FOR PRE-CALCULUS On this website you will find the agenda and other related PRE- CALCULUS materials. ***I strongly recommend the usage of the website below: www.khanacademy.com; I will be assigning practice examples for students to reinforce concepts covered in class. www.khanacademy.com Students will be using the program www.quia.com to complete given activities that will reinforce given lessons.www.quia.com ANOTHER RELATED WEBSITES: WWW.BRIGHTSTORM.COMWWW.BRIGHTSTORM.COM Great site, can help with PRE-CALCULUS. However, it will cost you a minimum of $10.00 per month to use this site. It will worth it.
