This class introduces and develops the concepts of quadratic relations and functions, polynomial functions, radical functions, rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, and conic sections. There is an emphasis on graphing, the understanding of translations, and locating important parts of graphs. Students will understand and communicate models in four ways – graphically, algebraically, numerically, and verbally. We will explore arithmetic and geometric sequences and series, matrices, probability, and statistics. Computations in this class require mastery of Algebra I skills.
Required daily: A positive attitude, a spiral notebook
or 3 ring binder, and a pencil. A of a scientific calculator is suggested but

I expect the rules in the handbook
to be followed at all times. These rules are here to provide an
environment conducive to learning. Any discipline actions required in the
handbook will be given. I have only three classroom policies and they sum
up the entire handbook.
Be respectful – to yourself, to others, and to the learning environment.
Be prepared – each day with your assignments, supplies, and positive attitude.
Be prompt – Come to class daily. All personal business should be taken care of before class. 3 tardies = 1 absence and a referral for 3 detentions ?
problems will be given it is up to the student to complete. Concept checks will
be given every 2-3 days based on the recommended problems. It is the students responsibility to complete
and comprehend the recommended problems so they can do well on the graded
Quizzes will be used to make a
quick assessment of your knowledge. Tests are cumulative and have both
multiple-choice and show your work type questions. Take good notes! Complete your assignments in a timely manner. If you are absent, arrange to get a copy of someone’s notes.
SEMESTER TESTS These tests are cumulative - they
will cover everything up to the test. To be successful, study your
notes and correct your old tests/quizzes. Take advantage of tutoring
throughout the entire semester rather than trying to cram at the end!
LATE WORK –At the discretion of the teacher.
The teacher reserves the right to
change the syllabus at any time if necessary.
