Welcome to Honors Algebra II.  I’m looking forward to a successful year with you.  The following is some information of what to expect from this class and what I’m going to expect from you.  Please take the time to read this over!

 

Supplies:  You will need the following.

Spiral notebook and a folder or a 3-ring binder with paper

Graph paper

Cm/inch ruler or protractor that has a ruler edge

Sharpened pencil with eraser or mechanical pencils

Graphing calculator – TI 83 plus, or 84 plus (at least have it on your chrome book)

Colored pencils (just a few colors that you keep in your backpack or binder will do)

 

Attendance:  this is a very different year.  To the best of your ability, be at our Zoom meeting or in class following the schedule for the school.  I will be giving deadlines for assignments and some of those assignments may be used for attendance.  You still need to do all work even when you miss class (in person or zooming).

 

Notebook:  How you organize your notebook is up to you.  One suggestion is that you keep one section for notes and another section for assignments.  You will also need to keep all returned tests or quizzes in either a folder or your 3-ring binder.  If you have a different way of organizing your work, that is fine but do keep your work organized!

 

Assignments:  All assignments are essential for practicing your new math skills and is worth 20% of your grade.  I expect all assignments to be completed with all work shown by the due date.   Homework missed due to an excused absence must be made up within one week unless there are extenuating circumstances.  Please title (by page number or whatever) and date all of your assignments.

 Assessments: I will be assessing on Mondays and Tuesdays in small ways.  Fridays will always be days to ask questions and to practice.  Make sure you use Fridays to be prepared for Monday and Tuesday!

 Participation:  You need to take an active role in your learning.  I will be observing and taking notes on how much you participate in class.  Participation includes that you volunteer to explain homework problems, ask pertinent questions, and are on task during all activities. 

 Respect:  This is very important to me. I will have new rules for you this year so make sure you pay attention on Monday when I go over these rules.  

 Assessment/grading:  Your semester grade will be determined by averaging the points you have accumulated in each category and then a weighted average will be determined.  Assignments (including homework) are worth 20%, Assessments are 70%, and your final is 10%.  The following scale will be used to determine your letter grade.

            A  90% -100%

            B  80% -89%

            C  70% -79%                          

            D  60% -69%                         

            F  Below 60%

Grades that are in between like 89.5% will be decided based on your effort and attitude in class.   

  

Extra Help:  Do not hesitate to see for extra help during my office hours.  I will be happy to offer additional explanations.  We can set up an appointment on Fridays to meet or Zoom.
