 Algebra 1  Inactive  
Course Description:
Algebra 1 provides a formal development of the algebraic skills and concepts necessary for students to succeed in advanced courses. It is the bridge from the concrete to the abstract study of mathematics. In particular, the instructional program in this course provides for the use of algebraic skills in a wide range of problemsolving situations. Topics include simplifying expressions, evaluating and solving equations and inequalities, and graphing linear and quadratic functions and relations. Real world applications are presented within the course content and a function's approach is emphasized. Students are required to take and pass the Florida End of Course (EOC) exam to receive credit for this course.
Behavioral Expectations
The teacher plays a role in learning but ultimately, you are responsible for the quality of your education. In order to maximize your learning experience, ask yourself the following questions:
 Do you attend classes on a regular basis?
 Are you on time to class?
 Are you prepared for class  pencil/pen, notebook, calculator?
 Do you do your homework everyday?
 Do you pay attention in class, participate in discussions and ask relevant questions?
 Do you treat all other students with respect and allow for open educational debate?
 If you are absent, do you make an effort to find out what was covered and make up the work?
 Do you seek extrahelp as soon as possible if you did not understand something in class?
 If you miss a test, do you take the initiative to arrange a makeup?
These are the behaviors that make for a good student and a good learning environment. You are expected to be such a student.

Algebra 1 Class Rules and Procedures
Office: Room 2437
Tutoring: Mon., Tue., & Thurs. after school by appointment
Phone: 7543215300
Required:
• Textbook: Prentice Hall Algebra 1.
• Math Notebooks: 3 notebooks total – two spiral notebooks (one for class notes and one for homework) and a binder notebook (for handouts and misc. papers). Required for class everyday.
The class notes notebook will be maintained as follows;
1. Heading on the top of each page, front and back. Heading shall include the lecture topic, name, period and date.
2. Notes (lecture information, definitions, procedures, etc.) will be taken outside of class, either before or after each lecture, using the book and/or lecture PowerPoints. During class, students will include worked examples and student problems (Your Turn) worked during class in their notes.
3. Notes will be divided by chapter. Chapters will be separated by dividers or a blank page.
4. When absent, students are responsible for obtaining missed notes. All class notes are given as PowerPoint lectures and are available on my web site.
5. Class notes notebook will graded by chapter. The notebook will be collected the day of each chapter test.
The homework notebook will be maintained as follows;
1. Heading on the top of the first page of an assignment. Heading shall include assignment section number, problems assigned, name, period and date.
2. Show all work to receive credit for homework assignments. Work must be neat and organized.
3. Homework will be checked daily at the beginning of class during the daily quiz.
• Supplies:
1. Four function calculator for use at home.
• Students are required to bring their notebooks to class each day. Failure to do so will affect your ability to complete this course satisfactorily.
• Students are responsible for all material presented in class (whether present or not), including announcements about changes in course procedures.
Attendance:
This course is fastpaced and demanding. One topic builds on another. Daily participation is a must. You are responsible for all material presented in class, present or absent, including announcements about course procedures. Exams, quizzes, and homework may include questions on material presented only in class, so performance on these indirectly reflects attendance. I do not reteach previous lessons. If you are absent, it is your responsibility to review the material covered, complete the assignments missed and if you require additional help attend tutoring after school. Tardies – IAW ATC student handbook.
Evaluation:
Test and quizzes may contain True/false, multiple choice, matching, and/or free response questions. You must show all work, neatly and organized, or give an explanation to receive credit for all free response questions. All work in this course most be your own work IAW the student honor code.
• Test: Chapter tests and/or projects are 60% of total grade. Books and /or notes are not allowed to be used at anytime during a test. Violation of the student honor code will be handled IAW the ATC Student Handbook.
• Daily Quiz: Daily homework quizzes are 20% of total grade. Each daily quiz will contain 4 questions and be graded as follows: 4 correct 100, 3 correct  85, 2 correct  70, 1 correct  50. Normally, a daily quiz will be given during the first 10 minutes of class. Additional quizzes may also be given at times. Daily quizzes missed due to excused absences will not be made up and will not count towards final grade. Daily quizzes missed due to unexcused absences or tardies will be assigned a grade of zero.
• Homework: Homework is 10% of total grade. Homework will be checked daily during the first 510 minutes of class while the daily quiz is being taken. All work must be shown to receive credit, answers only will receive no credit. All work must be neat and organized. Full credit for a homework assignment is 2 points. Partially completed homework will receive half credit, 1 point. No late homework is IAW the ATC Student Handbook. Homework will normally be given every class period.
• Notebook: Class Notes Notebook is 10% of total grade. Notebook will be graded IAW the Notes Grading Rubric on a scale of 0 to 20. Late notebooks will be graded IAW the ATC student handbook.
• Course grades: A: 100–90 B+: 8987 B: 8680 C+:7977 C: 7670 D+: 6967
D: 6660 F: 590.
• Makeup work: All makeup homework will be completed in accordance with the student handbook. However, previously assigned work is due the day of return. Makeup homework will be presented during the normal homework check upon your return to class. Makeup tests will be completed in class on the day of return to class. Makeup tests and homework not completed within the required time period will be assigned a grade of zero. Quizzes missed due to excused absence are not made up and do not count toward the final grade.
Restroom Passes:
Restroom passes are only to be used for their stated purpose and should normally take about 5 minutes. Only one person at a time will be allowed to go to the restroom. A restroom pass will be posted; ask permission, take the pass, go, and return the pass. Restroom passes are a privilege. If a student abuses their restroom privileges, then they lose them.
Electronic Devices:
IAW the student code of conduct and ATC student handbook, forbidden devices (including, but not limited to laptops, iPods, mp3 players and cell phones not turned off and out of sight) will be confiscated. Warnings will not be given.
Classroom Rules:
#1 Be prepared for class.
#2 Do not disrupt the class (talking, horseplay, joking around, etc.).
#3 Remain in assigned seat.
#4 Participate in all class activates (note taking, working problems, etc.).
#4Class starts and ends IAW the bell schedule.
Consequences of breaking the above rules are IAW the ATC student handbook.
