H Alg2 Course Syllabus 2009 2010

  1. 1. Name: ____________________ August 31, 2009 Honors Algebra 2 – Smith Period 6 HONORS ALGEBRA 2, 2009–2010 Course Description: This course gives students a deeper understanding of the structure of Algebra. It is designed to expand the students’ mathematical ability in applying algebraic concepts and skills in the solving of problems. This course includes a review of concepts from Algebra 1 and explores new concepts, such as polynomial and logarithmic functions, matrices, and the binomial theorem. Course Goals: 1. To provide the student with a deeper understanding of the mathematical content, concepts, and connections between algebra and geometry. 2. To provide the student with the ability to determine algebraic solutions in various content areas and apply these solutions to real-world scenarios. Required Materials: All students are required to have a textbook (McDougal Litell), two folders, pencils, and loose- leaf paper on a daily basis. Calculators are optional, although recommended. Grading: A preliminary breakdown of percentages for each quarter is: Homework – 25 % Notebook/Participation – 20 % Tests/Projects – 35 % Quizzes – 20 % You will be responsible for keeping track of your grades throughout each quarter. Guidelines for acceptable work: 1. Homework will be given on a daily basis. All homework MUST be done on loose-leaf paper. Grading will be based upon completeness, organization, and neatness. 2. Show all work – get used to doing this. Answers alone are insufficient. Partial credit will be given on tests and quizzes for work. 3. Each assignment should start on a new sheet of paper. Consecutive problems should be numbered top-to-bottom on a page. You are encouraged to use both sides of the paper. Procedures for absences: 1. Any work not turned in on time because of an excused absence will be due on the day of the student’s return. 2. Students are responsible for all assignments and notes given during absences. Ask classmates for missed work; in addition, notes will be available online. 3. Tests that are missed MUST be made up the day that you return. Further assistance: I will be available for extra help outside of class from 7:00 to 7:30 and 3:30 to 4:30.
