Principles of Algebra and GeometryPrinciples of Algebra and Geometry

**Rules, Policies, and Procedures****2019-2020****Mrs. Owen****Principles of Algebra and Geometry**

__Course Title:__**The purpose of this course is to prepare students for ISAT testing by giving students a knowledge of both Algebra and Geometry.**

__Course Description:__**www.owenmathclass.com**

__Course Website:__**We will study as many of the following units as time allows in this course:**

__Big Ideas:__1.Target P – Summarize, represent, and interpret data on a single count or measurement variable.

2.Target O – Define trigonometric ratios and solve problems involving right triangles

3.Geometry - Transformations

4.Target I – Solve equations and inequalities in one variable (Linear)

5.Target G – Create equations that describe numbers or relationships (Linear and Exponential)

6.Target J – Represent and solve equations and inequalities graphically (Linear and Exponential)

7.Target L – Interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of a context (Linear and Exponential)

8.Target M – Analyze functions using different representations (Linear and Exponential)

9.Target N – Build a function that models a relationship between two quantities (Linear and Exponential)

10.Target I – Solve equations and inequalities in one variable (Quadratic)

11.Target G – Create equations that describe numbers or relationships (Quadratic)

12.Target J – Represent and solve equations and inequalities graphically (Quadratic

13.Target L – Interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of a context (Quadratic)

14.Target M – Analyze functions using different representations (Quadratic

15.Target N – Build a function that models a relationship between two quantities (Quadratic)

16.Target D – Interpret the structure of expressions

17.Target E – Write expressions in equivalent forms to solve problems

18.Target F – Perform arithmetic operations on polynomials

19.Target H – Understand solving equations as a process of reasoning and explain the reasoning

20.Target K – Understand the concept of a function and use function notation

21.Target A – Extend the properties of exponents to rational numbers

22.Target B – Use properties of rational and irrational numbers

23.Target C – Reason quantitatively and use units to solve problems

24.Geometry – Properties of triangles

25.Geometry – Properties of circles

__Classroom rules:__- Respect others and their property
- Have all materials, and have them ready to use when the bell rings
- Be polite and helpful
- Don’t curse or swear
- No cheating*

***Cheating:**Cheating will not be tolerated. Any student found cheating will receive a failing grade on that assignment and the student’s parents will be contacted. A second offense will result in disciplinary action.

__Consequences:__- First offense: Warning
- Second offense: Short conference with student
- Third offense: Student will be sent to ISS

__Grading Policy:__Quarter Grading:

Assignments……………………………………………………………10%

Quizzes…………………………………………………………………30%

Interim Assessments..………………………………………………….40%

End of Quarter Exam.………………………………………………….20%

__Procedures:__- Turning work in
- Work must be placed in the appropriate tray in the room.

- Late work
- Completing work late puts you at a disadvantage in class. Math is a subject that relies on previously learned skills. I strongly encourage you to complete your work on time.

- Pre-Tests
- For each section in a target you will complete a pre-test.
- If you score high enough on the pre-test you will not need to complete the assignment for that section.

- Interim assessments
- You will take interim assessments once the appropriate number of targets have been completed. These are computerized tests.
- The interim assessments cannot be retaken.

- Quizzes
- Quizzes will be given at the end of each week.
- Quizzes may cover any material discussed during the course.

- Leaving the classroom for any reason
- If you are leaving the classroom without a staff member, take the pass.

- End-of-period class dismissal
- I have an alarm that will tell you when you can pack up at the end of class.
- Do not pack up before I give you permission to.

- Food and Drink
- No food or drink will be allowed in the classroom.

- Electronic Devices
- Use of electronic devices is not allowed unless directed by the teacher.
