Course name: Algebra 1B

Course number: 7919090

Teacher: Drew

Objective:

The purpose of this course is to continue to develop the algebraic concepts and processes that can be used to analyze and solve a variety of routine and non-routine real-world and mathematical problems

Description:

Algebra Ib integrates geometry, probability, and statistics together with Algebra. This course is the second part to a full Algebra 1 course. Students learn to use mathematics effectively through problem-solving experiences that include use of higher-order thinking skills in daily assignments, a wide variety of problem types in the questions, and open-ended problems. They also learn to read and understand mathematics on their own, and to express this understanding both orally and in writing.

Classroom expectations:

The teacher will provide accommodations and modification to allow all students to participate in class to their fullest ability.

Students are expected to:

1) Respect Peers, Staff, and Yourself

2) Respect Class Time

3) Respect School Property

4) Be Where You Are Supposed to Be

Assessment:

Based on individual student needs the student may be assessed using any combination of:

• cumulative projects

• work portfolio

• written assessment

• verbal assessment

• teacher and staff daily observation

Grading:

• 20% completed in-class assignments (ie. Given appropriate accommodations, was the student able to independently complete the classwork for the day)

• 40% completed end of topic assessments (ie. Given appropriate accommodations and modifications the student is able to demonstrate a working knowledge of the topic based on the sunshine state standards)

• 20% daily demonstration of appropriate behavior during class (ie. Given appropriate accommodations the student will demonstrate behavior that is conducive for their own learning and the learning of their peers)

• 20% participation (given appropriate accommodations and modifications the student will engage in classroom activities)
