I have a Google Classroom set up for each of my classes. This is my class code for our Google Classroom:

4ts0p7

Course Description

        This course is designed for students in the 11th & 12th grade. It is meant for students who would like to continue in a mathematics class but would like to take a course other than calculus. Students should show the ability to think critically and strategically. It will help prepare our students for greater success in the age of information. They should have successfully completed college algebra or pre-calculus.

Course Expectations and Assessments

  1. We will have around 2 or 3 major assessments every marking period
  2. There will be at least 2 minor assessments for every major assessment
  3. We will try to have one project per marking period for the students to complete, this will count as a major assessment

Course Policies 

  1. There are no retakes for quizzes
  2. In order to retake a test a student must have completed all the homework that would have been covered for that test.

Required and Recommended Materials 

Assistance

        I am available for help after school from Monday through Thursday and most of those days I am here until 4 or 4:30. I just ask that if your student has any concerns or needs extra help they just let me know so I can make sure that I am able to help them.

        In the students Google Classroom I try my best to post the notes that we go over in every class so if they ever need to see the notes but do not have them with them all they have to do is go onto our classroom.

Classroom Behavioral Expectations and Rewards/Consequences

  1. Respect any and all classmates and teacher.
  2. Do not deface the school property, this includes the desks, I have been a custodian before and marks on the desk can be annoying to get out. If I see any marks on the desk I will have the student stay after class to get the mark off.
  3. Be on time to class. Every 4 latenesses will result in a detention with myself.
