General Information
Description
This course focuses on the four critical areas of the Common Core model pathway for Algebra I. The course will review whole numbers, operations on fractions and decimals, and percent. The course will cover topics of statistics and probability, real numbers, equations, inequalities and problem solving, graphing equations and inequalities, solving systems of equations, exponents and polynomials, factoring polynomials, rational expressions, roots and radicals, and quadratic equations. Students will make connections between verbal, numeric, algebraic, and graphical representations of functions and apply this knowledge as they create equations and inequalities that can be used to model and solve mathematical and real-world problems. The Common Core practice standards are embedded throughout the course, as students solve problems, reason abstractly, and think critically.
Expectations and Goals
Throughout the course, you will meet the following goals:
Communicate effectively using graphic, numeric, symbolic, and verbal representations
Compare and connect the structure of the polynomial system and the system of integers
Use the coordinate plane to extend equations to model linear and quadratic phenomena
Synthesize and generalize what you have learned about a variety of equations
Relate visual data displays and summary statistics to different types of data, including probability distributions
Throughout the course, you are expected to spend approximately 5–7 hours per week on the following activities: • Interactive lessons that include a mixture of instructional videos and tasks • Assignments in which you apply and extend learning in each lesson • Assessments, including quizzes, tests, and cumulative exams
Required Course Materials
It is your responsibility to come to class prepared daily with the following materials and points will be allocated for these materials:
Scientific or graphing calculator
Three Ring Binder
Lined and graph paper
Four color pen, pencils, Ruler
Communication
I will communicate with you regularly through classroom discussions, email, and Weebly. You will also communicate with classmates, either via online tools or face to face, as you collaborate on projects, ask and answer questions in your peer group, and develop your speaking and listening skills.
Scope and Sequence
The units of study are summarized below:
Unit 1: Review of Basics (Operations on Integers, Fractions and Decimals)
Unit 2: Statistics and Probability
Unit 3: Real Number System
Unit 4: Equations, Inequalities, and Problem Solving
Unit 5: Graphing Equations and Inequalities
Unit 6: Systems of Equations
Unit 7: Exponents and Polynomials
Unit 8: Factoring Polynomials
Unit 9: Rational Expressions
Unit 10: Roots and Radicals
Unit 11: Quadratic Equations
Grading Policy:
Calculator checks: 5 points (points alternate between HCPS and 21st Century Skills).
YOU MAY ONLY RECEIVE THESE POINTS IF YOU ARE IN CLASS ON TIME.
NO MAKE-UP! It is valuable to attend school and arrive to class on time.
Homework/Classwork: 10 points (5 pts HCPS and 5 pts 21st Century Skills)
Quizzes: 10-20 points per quiz (all pts Assessment).
Assessments: Typically 80 points (60 pts Assessment and 20 pts 21st Century Skills points per assessment)
Binder checks: Done on day of assessment (20pts – 21st Century Skills)
Homework will include, but it is not limited to worksheets, projects, and virtual assignments. Class work consists of notes, group work, and positive participation.
To receive credit for this course, you must obtain a grade of 70% or higher. All grades will be updated on Power School by Sunday 9pm of each week.
Weighting: 50% Assessment, 25% Homework/Classwork, 25% 21st Century Skills
90-100% A
80-89.9% B
70-79.9% C
60-69.9% I (remediation is possible by teacher discretion-student does not receive credit and must retake the credit)
Below 60% F (student does not receive credit and must retake the credit)
Make-up work: If you have an excused absence from class, you have the same number of days to turn in your assignment as the number of days you were out. Late work will be accepted up to the assessment for that section. Any work turned in one day late will result in a loss of 50% of 21st Century Skills and after that all 21st Century Skills points will be lost (however, you can still earn ALL the content points up until the day of the test).
Students who have excused absences have the amount of days absent to turn in the work that they missed. If students miss a day of school, it is the student’s responsibility to check Weebly and/or email me to make up missing work.
Classroom Expectations:
- Respect all students and the teacher in the class
- Come to class prepared to learn – with all materials
- Leave all food and drinks outside, except water
- Adhere to the four core values of Kihei Charter School: respect and courtesy, ownership, effort creates ability, everything speaks
- Exhibit positive and appropriate behavior at all times
Classroom Consequences:
- Verbal warning
- Leave class
- Call home
- Administrative intervention
