Letter from Mr. Stuckey - Stats

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.

    Materials

    There are a few materials that will be required to complete assignments in this class. Pencils, erasers, and paper, of course. We may, at times, use software for either a computer or for a smartphone. If a computer is not available at home, the school library is available most days from 3 to 4, and also during tutorial periods. When using start phones in class, every student is expected to be working on school work. Wifi is available at by logging in using student credentials.

    Calculators

    Students will want their own calculator. This course involves lots and lots of numbers that will too time-consuming to compute by hand. Students will want to have a calculator with stats function. The calculator I will be teaching from in class is the TI-36X Pro (http://goo.gl/EtmthM). It is available for about $20. In the past we have used the TI-84, but it is about $110. Any other calculators will be be fine if they have stats functions. If unsure, bring it into class, and I’ll take a look at it.

    General Expectations

    1. Come to class on time and prepared to work. Bring with you: Pencils and/or Pens Notebook paper Homework! Calculator 2. Show respect for teachers, staff and fellow students. 3. Follow all RHS rules. We want a Responsible, Honorable and Safe student body.
