Algebra Syllabus                                                                                                      Mrs. R. Monks

 

This textbook program is based on the recommendations of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and other curriculum groups that emphasize problem solving, critical thinking, and connections among mathematical topics and connections between mathematics and other subject areas in an integrated format.

 

With an Integrated approach, your students can:

  •     Learn more about mathematics
  •     Solve problems that are more realistic and more interesting
  •     Have better retention of what they have learned
  •     Learn to think critically
  •     See the connections among differnent branches of mathematics

 

During this course, your student will learn (but not necessarily in this order):

  •     Tools of Geometry
  •     Reasoning and Proofs
  •     Parallel and Perpendicular Lines
  •     Congruent Triangles
  •     Relationships in Triangles
  •     Quadrilaterals
  •     Transformations
  •     Circles
  •     Areas of Polygons and Circles
  •     Extending Surface Area
  •     Extending Volume

 

Assessment:  Mini Quiz, Tests, Notebook Checks, Participation, and Organization

  •     Assessments are given on a regular basis.  I give a "mini quz" a day to check for student understanding of the homework.  These "mini quizzes" are 3-4 problems taken directly from the previous night's homework and one question from the CSAP sample questions.
  •     I also admisister chapter tests.  These tests are preceded with a study day where the students are to aks me any final questions pertaining to the lessons of the chapter.
  •     Other forms of assessment for this class include weekly notebook checks.  The students are to do their "mini quiz" each start of class, followed by note taking.  Afterwards, I allow time for some classwork.  The students using this class time appropriately should minimalize or even negate tiehr homework.  I collect these notebooks weekly, and assess student knowledge through these.  These notebooks are also allowed for use on some teses. so it is advisable that the students write legibly and orderly.

 

 

Make-up work:  Excused and Unexcused absences

  •     I allow one day for make-up work for any class day excused.
  •     If a student has late work to turn in due to an unexcused absence, school policy dictates that "all work missed due to an unexcused absence will be assigned up to 75% of the earned grade." (student handbook, pg. 17) 

 

Grading Scale:           A  90% - 100%

                                    B  80% - 89%

                                    C  70% - 79%

                                    D  60% - 69%

                                    F  Below 60%

 

All of the rest of the classroom expectations are on their class contracts located within their notebooks.  On these contracts are various ways to communicate with me, if you have any further questions, as well as some policies including: attendance, homework expectations, class expectations, consequences, and progress reports.
