F - 69-Below
SYNERGY ACCESS TO GRADES:  
It is strongly encouraged that you keep your Synergy login information in a safe place and that you have access to the information when needed.  Parents should contact the Main Office (770.819.2521).
Please note that when you are viewing grades in Synergy that a blank grade column for your child has no effect on their grade.  If the space is blank, then your student may not have turned in that assignment due to absence or the teacher may not have entered grades for that assignment at that time.  An “X” means that the student is exempt from an assignment at the discretion of the teacher.

Homework/Class Work Requirements:
PreCalculus students are expected to be highly motivated, achievement-oriented students.  Although you will not be graded on all daily work and homework, you are expected to complete all assignments thoroughly.  Work may be spot checked for completion and/or accuracy.  Sometimes, homework quizzes may be given.


Projects:
  • Some of the learning that takes place in this class will be student-driven and project based.  True learning takes place when students solve problems and discover things on their own.  I will not stand in front of the class and simply tell you what you need to know. 
  • Some projects will be individual, but many will require you to work in a small group.  Generally groups will initially be two people but if students prove that they are able to work well in larger groups, I will allow it. 
  • While I understand that some people prefer to work alone, working with others is an essential skill that is needed to be successful as an adult.  If you are one of these people, please speak with me in private and I will attempt to group you with other students in which you will be compatible.

Tests and Quizzes: 
  • The majority of the tests and quizzes I give are multiple choice and short answer.  However, all tests can include a combination of any of the following: multiple choice, true/false, matching, fill-in-the-blank, short answer, graphs, charts, and map questions.
  • Quizzes will be scheduled in advance, but the teacher reserves the right to give pop quizzes. If participation in class is low, students are not able to participate in class discussions with reasonable intelligence of the material, and/or did not complete the homework, a pop quiz may be given. Quizzes will cover the readings that the student is to have completed, class activities, and any notes given in class lecture (normally only a week’s worth of material).


FINAL EXAM EXEMPTION:  Students with no more than one excused absence may qualify to exempt one of their final exams.  Students with a course average of 80 or higher may exempt one final exam of their choice.  Students with a course average of 79 or below may request that ten percentage points be added to the final exam grade.  Towards the end of the semester, students who qualify may submit an Exam Exemption Form to the classroom teacher of their choice.  Teachers must verify that the student qualifies for the exemption.

LATE WORK POLICY: Any late work will receive a highest possible grade of a 70 if turned in after the assignment is due.  The student will have until the unit test to turn in late work and will receive a highest possible grade of 70.  No work will be graded after the Unit Test.

ATTENDANCE AND MAKE-UP POLICY: If a student receives an excused absence he or she will be able to make up the work in class that was done for the day.  It is the student’s responsibility to obtain their work from the teacher and complete and return in a timely manner.  The student has up to the amount of excused absences plus one day to complete any missing work.  After that point, the work will be considered late and will be graded as such.  Missing grades are marked as a Zero until students complete the missing assignment. Students will be given the opportunity to make up any missed formative and summative exams with an excused absence. It is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements to make up any assignments or assessments.

TARDY POLICY:  To avoid being counted tardy, students must be seated and ready for class when the bell rings.  School policy states that students may receive detention, In-School Suspension, and Out-of-School Suspension for repeated tardies. 

EXTRA HELP: 
Students can come to room 805 Wednesday afternoon ( 3:45 -4:45)  and  Tuesday morning from 7:45-8:15.  Please make sure you sign-up if you are planning on coming to tutoring during any of these times.

CELL PHONES AND ELECTRONIC DEVICES:
As per the school’s policy, cell phones are not to be used during class time unless directed by the teacher for instructional purposes. Students will receive a discipline referral after one warning to put away any electronic device (unless the device is being used for instruction). Students are allowed to bring certain technologies to class (iPad, laptop, Kindle, etc.), but it should NOT interfere with the teaching or other’s learning.
GRADE RECOVERY: Students who score 69 or below on any unit assessment are allowed to retake the assessment.  The grade will not exceed a 70 for the unit assessment.  The retake must be completed within one week. Please view the teacher’s blog for notification when the assessment will be administered. All retakes must take place before or after school, with attendance at a minimum of one tutoring session.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY:
Cheating is considered a serious matter.  Any student who is involved in cheating/plagiarism will receive a grade of zero on the material, an unsatisfactory in conduct, and his/her parents will be notified.

For this course, cheating is defined as, but is not limited to, the following acts:

  • Copying anyone's answers to questions, exercises, study guides, class work or homework assignments
  • Taking any information verbatim from any source, including the Internet, without giving proper credit to the author, or rearranging the order of words and/or changing some words as written by the author and claiming the work as his or her own, i.e., plagiarism.
  • Looking onto another student's paper during a test or quiz.
  • Having available any study notes or other test aids during a test or quiz without the teacher's permission.
  • Collaborating on assignments when independent work is expected.

FINAL THOUGHTS:  E-mail is the easiest way to communicate with me.  I will try to return emails within 1 business day.  My e-mail address is kimberly.harrell@cobbk12.org

KEY ACTIONS:
·       Increase the Graduation Rate
·       Increase rigor and student engagement (Project-based learning environment)
·       Increase community and parental involvement

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
The College Readiness Mathematics course focuses on fifty-two key readiness standards
as well as ten Process Readiness Indicators needed for students to be ready to undertake postsecondary academic or career preparation in non-STEM fields or majors. The course addresses standards throughout high school and even earlier, including Algebra I, statistics and geometry, and the Algebra II standards agreed to as essential college- and career-readiness standards for most students.  The full range of content standards found in Algebra II is not addressed because some are not seen as essential college- and career-readiness standards for non-STEM math courses. The math course consists of seven mandatory modules: algebraic expressions, equations, measurement and proportional reasoning, linear functions, linear
systems of equations, quadratic functions, exponential functions and summarizing and interpreting statistical data (optional).  While this course covers the basics in math practices and reviews the procedural steps  needed to be successful in math, it is designed to teach in a new, engaging way based
heavily on conceptual teaching and learning. Each unit includes a “hook” at the beginning to engage students and pre-assess prior math experiences and understandings. 

KEY STANDARDS:

Unit 1: Algebraic Expressions
Unit 2: Equations
Unit 3: Measurement and Proportional Reasoning
Unit 4: Linear Functions
Unit 5: Linear Systems of Equations
Unit 6: Quadratic Functions
Unit 7: Exponential Functions
Unit 8: Statistical Data

TEXTBOOK/SUPPLEMENTAL RESOURCES: Our main textbook for the course is Student manual for College Readiness Mathematics
