Course Description
This is the first in a sequence of mathematics courses designed to prepare students to take AB or BC Advanced Placement
Calculus. The standards in this course are organized around five conceptual categories: number and quantity, algebra,
functions, geometry, statistics, and probability. These standards call on students to practice applying mathematical ways of
thinking to real world issues and challenges; they prepare students to think and reason mathematically. This course sets a
rigorous definition of college and career readiness, not by piling topic upon topic, but by demanding that students develop a
depth of understanding and an ability to apply mathematics to novel situations, as college students and employees regularly
do.

The following academic concepts will be covered. THIS IS ONLY A GUIDE AND IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE.

GRADING SYSTEM: The DeKalb County School District believes that the most important assessment

of student learning shall be conducted by the teachers as they observe and evaluate students in
context of ongoing classroom instruction. A variety of approaches, methodologies, and resources
shall be used to deliver educational services and to maximize each students opportunity to
succeed. Teachers shall evaluate student progress, report grades that represent the students
academic achievement, and communicate official academic progress to students and parents in a
timely manner through the electronic grading portal. See Board Policy IHA.

Formative Assessment (Pre-Assessment) 0%
Assessment During Learning 25%

EXPECTATIONS

Semester progress reports shall be issued four and a half, nine and
thirteen and a half weeks into each semester. The progress of students
shall be evaluated frequently and plans shall be generated to remediate
deficiencies as they are discovered. Plans shall include appropriate
interventions designed to meet the needs of the students. See Board
Policy IH.
Students will not engage in an act of academic dishonesty including, but
not limited to, cheating, providing false information, falsifying school
records, forging signatures, or using an unauthorized computer user ID
or password. See the Code of Student Conduct - Student Rights
and Responsibilities and Character Development Handbook.
Homework assignments should be meaningful and should be an
application or adaptation of a classroom experience. Homework is at all
times an extension of the teaching/learning experience. It should be
considered the possession of the student and should be collected,
evaluated and returned to the students. See Board Policy IHB.
When a student is absent because of a legal reason as defined by
Georgia law or when the absence is apparently beyond the control of the
student, the student shall be given an opportunity to earn grade(s) for
those days absent. Make-up work must be completed within the
designated time allotted. See Board Policy IHEA.
SCHOOL EXPECTATIONS FOR SUCCESS
1 Follow Directions the first time that they are given.
2 Be respectful of yourself and everyone else at all times.
3 Always bring your own supplies. Do not borrow supplies.
4 Speak at appropriate times and use appropriate language.
5 DO NOT BULLY OTHERS AND REPORT BULLYING IMMEDIATELY.

It is the expectation of this faculty that all assignments are completed for mastery. If an
assignment is not submitted and/or does not meet the teachers expectations, then the
student must complete and /or re-do the assignment before the end of the current unit.
Once the assignment is turned in, the assignment will be graded as-is. This grade will then
be rounded down to the nearest 10 and entered in the gradebook. For example, if an
assignment turned in late is scored an 83, the grade will be entered as an 80 in the
gradebook. Once the unit test is given, no late assignments will be accepted. Beginning
second semester, late work will not be accepted.
