  •                               Geometry Syllabus
    OBJECTIVE: To develop an understanding of and an ability to work with the postulates and theorems of geometry and to pass the benchmarks. 
    DESCRIPTION: This course will encompass both plane and solid geometry.  Plane geometry is the study of geometric forms that are on a flat surface, such as lines, angles and polygons.  Solid geometry will stress the new viewpoints in going from two to three dimensional figures.  Students are exposed to formal and systematic proofs and are expected to understand the reasoning of others, and to write proofs on their own.
    GRADING PROCEDURES: Grades will be determined by a percent, based on points earned to points possible. The breakdown is as follows: 50% benchmark assessments, 20% chapter tests, 20% homework, and 10% chapter quizzes. We will usually cover one section of the chapter each day.  For each chapter there will be one assignment for each section, one chapter test, usually two quizzes and one benchmark assessment.  To get full credit for all problems, show your work.
    SUPPLIES: Every day, each student must have the following supplies which they are encouraged to leave in the classroom in a designated area: a pencil, a protractor, a geometric compass and a dry erase marker.  All students will be required to work out math problems on a white board on a daily basis, so the dry erase marker is required.  Since no credit will be given for any work done in ink, a pencil is also required.  There are a limited number of supplies for those who need the school to furnish them.
    CLASS RULES:    No food, drink or gum in the classroom.  Come to class prepared each day.  Treat all people and items in the classroom with respect.  Do not be disruptive.  Rule infraction consequences include warnings, parent contact and/or involvement, and office referral.

                                                          ALGEBRA II SYLLABUS    
    OBJECTIVE: To develop an understanding of algebraic concepts so that students will be able to pass the common core benchmarks.
    DESCRIPTION: Algebra II reviews the skills learned from Algebra I and extends them.  Complex numbers and real numbers, both rational and irrational are taught.  Trigonometry, matrices, imaginary numbers, and quadratic functions are introduced.  Families of functions are covered in great detail.
     

     

    GRADING PROCEDURES: Grades will be determined by a percent,based on points earned to points possible. The breakdown is as follows: 50% benchmark assessments, 20% chaptertests, 20% homework, and 10% chapter quizzes. The benchmark assessments will be given as we progress through them.  Homework assignments will be given daily and must be completed by the due date for full credit.  Quizzes nd chapter tests will be given as we progress through the textbook.  We will not be spending time on the sections of the book which are not required to pass the benchmarks.  Some of those sections may be completed for extra credit.  
    SUPPLIES: Every day, each student must have the following supplies which they are encouraged to leave in the classroom in a designated area: paper, a pencil and a dry erase marker. All students will be required to work out math problems on a white board on a daily basis, so the dry erase marker is required.  Since no credit will be given for any work done in ink, the pencil is also required. There are a limited number of supplies for those who are unable to get their own.
    CLASS RULES: Water is allowed, gum, food and other drinks are not.  All work MUST be completed in pencil.  No credit for ink.  Always show your work.  Treat all people and items in the classroom with respect.  Do not be disruptive.  Rule infraction consequences include warnings, parent contact and/or involvement and office referral.
