Requirements: 1) Completion of all tests and quizzes;

2) Maintenance of a notebook as described below;

3) Preparedness and participation

and 4) Possession and use of a Graphing Calculator (TI 83 or 84 preferred)

Grades will be calculated by percentage (not by points), as follows:

Tests=40%

Quizzes=20%

Take-Home Midterm = 10%

Final Exam=15%

Participation, Notes & Homework=15%

100-90= A 89.9-85=A-

84.9-82=B+ 81.9-78=B 77.9-75= B-

74.9-72=C+ 71.9-68=C 67.9-65= C-

64.9-50=D 49.9-0= F

1) TESTS AND QUIZZES: Quizzes will be given approximately once a week and tests will be given at the end of each chapter in the text. In the event of a student being absent of a test day or not scoring 65% on a chapter test, he must take a retest

2) QUIZZES: Quizzes will be given approximately once a week and

3) NOTES & HOMEWORK: Each student must keep a neat and legible notebook. This can be done in a spiral notebook, on the iPad, or in the text. It should contain class notes, problems assigned in class, all homework, grade printouts, and handouts or downloads. Notebooks will be collected and graded once each quarter.

It is expected that each student will come to class with his/her own notebook, paper, pencils, textbook, calculator, and COMPLETED HOMEWORK. While each homework will not be collected nor graded separately, repeated lack of preparation and/or lower quiz scores will cause a student to be required to turn in completed assignments. Every assignment missing after a student is required to turn them in will lower the total grade 0.5 %-age points.

On the day BEFORE a chapter test (and before the final exam), a single, hand-written summary of the chapter is to be turned in. Each section covered should be present and summarized with the main idea of the section, new formulas, and vocabulary. Similar tot he Chapter Summary Sheet, on the day BEFORE the Final Exam, A summary of the semester is to be turned in. Each Chapter covered should be present and summarized with the main idea of the Chapters, formulas, and vocabulary. Examples are allowed.

Each student is also expected to be mentally prepared to discuss and present logical solutions to the homework problems both orally and on the board. Students will be chosen at random for board work.
