Letter from Mr. Stuckey - Math 2

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year, I am looking forward to the learning that is going to take place this year and I hope that you are, too. Contained in this letter is some very important information, so please hold onto it so that you can reference it in the future.

    Grades

    Grades are posted electronically online. Students and parents can access them through the Parent Portal (https://abip.fsusd.org/ParentPortal/). Grade Weights 30% Assignments and Quizzes 60% Assessments and Projects 10% Final Exam Grade Meanings A The student has completed proficient work on all course objectives and advanced work on some objectives. B The student has completed proficient work on all course objectives. C The student has completed proficient work on the most important objectives, although not on all objectives. The students can continue to the next course. D The student has completed proficient work on at least one-half of the course objectives but is missing some important objectives and is at significant risk of failing the next course in the sequence. The student should repeat the course if it is a prerequisite for another course. F The student has completed proficient work on fewer than one-half of the course objectives and cannot successfully complete the next course in sequence.

    Math 2 Course Overview

    This course develops the ability to discern, conjecture, reason, invent, and construct mathematically. It includes geometric proofs, quadratic functions, similarity, trigonometry, circles, and extended functions. Students use algebra and a full range of problem-solving skills in the development of geometric concepts.

    Calculators

    Students will want their own calculator. The calculator must have trigonometric functions of it: sin, cos, and tan. Graphing calculators are nice, but not necessary. Many scientific calculators for iPhone or Android phones are inexpensive and good enough for this class. However, phones will not be allowed on tests. The calculator I will be teaching from in class is the TI-36X Pro (http://goo.gl/EtmthM). It is available for about $20.

    General Expectations

    1. Come to class on time and prepared to work. Bring with you: Pencils and/or Pens Notebook paper Graph Paper Homework! 2. Show respect for teachers, staff and fellow students. 3. Follow all RHS rules. We want a Responsible, Honorable and Safe student body. This includes but is not limited to: • Wear your Student ID. • Proper dress: No hats, sweatshirt hoods, beanies, etc. No bare midriffs, spaghetti straps or underwear showing. • Technology must be used appropriately or will be confiscated. • No food, drinks or gum allowed in class. • Use appropriate and respectful language to all RHS staff, students, parents and visitors.
