ALGEBRAIC CONNECTIONS COURSE SYLLABUS

TEXT:  MATHEMATIC CONNECTIONS

Chapters and sections will be selected based on requirements outlined in the Alabama Course of Study and the Alabama High School Graduation Examination objectives.

Grading:  Grades are determined on a cumulative point system.  Major tests count more than daily grades.  At the end of each nine weeks, the total points possible will divide the studentís point total.  The resulting percentage is the studentís grade for that grading period.  Grades may include tests, quizzes, unit tests, notebook tests, projects, group work, and other work assigned by the instructor.  Semester tests are given in accordance with the school board policy.

Classroom Rules:  1. Food and drinks are not allowed in the classroom.  2.  NO phone passes except for sickness.  3. Students are expected to bring a notebook, pencil, paper, and calculator to class everyday.

Classroom Policies:  Homework assignments are accepted on the due date and time.  For excused absences, students must submit homework within five school days after the absence.

Late Work:  Special projects or assignments are due at the beginning of the period on the due date.  Late work will not be accepted.

Make up Work:  All homework, tests, and other assignments to be made up are the responsibility of the student.  Students who are absent should call a classmate to get daily assignments and be ready for any class work on the day the return to class. A grade of zero is assigned for all work not made up within five days of the excused absence.  No make up work is given for unexcused absences.
