This course will be very challenging as the standards in Mathematics have increasingly grown more demanding and rigorous for our students. However, the key to being successful in my class this year will require one simple thing, and that is EFFORT. If the student puts forth their “BEST” effort, which includes paying attention, following directions, taking notes, and completing any and all homework they are assigned; I promise they will have a successful school year.
Students will be provided with a Ti-73 graphing calculator to use during class time. DO NOT purchase this calculator. A basic scientific calculator will be sufficient at home. Be advised that most of the units will be taught without a calculator. Students will use various types of technology, as well as engage in numerous group activities.
