Resource Text: Georgia Math I by Carnegie Learning. A textbook was issued to each student.

Course Description: This is the first course in a sequence of courses designed to provide students with a
rigorous program of study in mathematics. It includes radical, polynomial and rational expressions, basic
functions and their graphs, simple equations, fundamentals of proof, properties of polygons, coordinate
geometry, sample statistics, and curve fitting. (Georgia Department of Education)

Expected Learner Outcomes:   More detailed information concerning the Georgia Performance Standards can be
found at
         Algebra
        MM1A1. Students will explore and interpret the characteristics of functions, using graphs, tables, and simple algebraic
        MM1A2. Students will simplify and operate with radical expressions, polynomials and rational expressions.
        MM1A3. Students will solve simple equations.
         Geometry
        MM1G1. Students will investigate properties of geometric figures in the coordinate plane.
        MM1G2. Students will understand and use the language of mathematical argument and justification.
        MM1G3. Students will discover, prove, and apply properties of triangles, quadrilaterals, and other polygons.
         Data Analysis and Probability
        MM1D1. Students will determine the number of outcomes related to a given event.
        MM1D2. Students will use the basic laws of probability.
        MM1D3. Students will relate samples to a population.
        MM1D4. Students will explore variability of data by determining the mean absolute deviation (the average of the absolute
                  values of the deviations).
         Process
        MM1P1. Students will solve problems (using appropriate technology).
        MM1P2. Students will reason and evaluate mathematical arguments.
        MM1P3. Students will communicate mathematically.
         MM1P4. Students will make connections among mathematical ideas and to other disciplines.
        MM1P5. Students will represent mathematics in multiple ways.
         Reading
        MRC. Students will enhance reading in all curriculum areas.

   1. 2.5 inch 3-ring binder with dividers - REQUIRED
   2. Graph paper and loose leaf notebook paper.
       IN PENCIL WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AND WILL RECEIVE A ZERO. It is your responsibility to be
       prepared with a pencil. I will not supply you with one. You are required to bring your book to class
       every day unless told otherwise.
We highly recommend that students purchase a TI 30 scientific calculator. As an option, students may purchase a TI 83
graphing calculator. This calculator will be beneficial throughout high school and college. Teachers will be using this
calculator for instruction and students will learn how to utilize it. We will also be using the TI-Nspire handheld from time
to time in class.
Extra Help: Extra help is available before and after school if requested by the student.
Academic Dishonesty: Academic dishonesty is a serious offense that will not be tolerated. If a student is
found cheating on any written work, a grade of zero will be given on the work, the student will receive an
unsatisfactory conduct grade, parents will be contacted, and the incident will also be reported to an
Class Expectations:
    Be on time, be prepared, and be on task.
    Do your homework! It is not a punishment. Math, unlike many subjects can and needs to be
        practiced. I expect you to be prepared to ask questions about your assignments. I can not help
        you if you do not ask for it.
    Have respect for EVERYONE and EVERYTHING in class. (i.e. Make fun of NO ONE)
    Take care of personal business and social conversations outside of class.
    Comply with all school rules

Grading Policy 1st Semester:                      Grading Policy 2nd Semester:
       Homework/Quizzes: 20%                         Homework/Quizzes: 20%
       Tasks: 25%                                    Tasks: 25%
       Tests: 40%                                    Tests: 40%
       Exam: 15%                                     EOCT: 15%

      Test: Major tests will be given at the end of each unit. Absences on a day prior to the test DOES
              NOT excuse students from taking the test. Students who are absent on the day of a test
              must make up that test during class on the first day they return to school. If students are
              absent the day before a test (typically a review day when no new information is presented),
              they will still need to take the test on the scheduled day unless prior arrangements are
      Task: Tasks are designed as a cooperative learning experience. If a student is absent for more
              than half of the task or misses the last day of the task he/she must complete the task on
              his/her own.
      Daily: Includes grades from homework, class work and quizzes. Work must be shown at all times
              for full credit to be given. LATE WORK WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. Exceptions to this rule
              will be at the discretion of the instructor.
      Make-up work: After absences, students will have the number of days absent to make up the
               missed work (More time can be arranged with the teacher but time should not exceed 10
               school days). If an assignment is not made up then a zero will be recorded. It is the
               student’s responsibility to find out what work he/she will need to complete and it is the
               student’s responsibility to turn in the make-up work. Remember that 0’s do not average
               well. For all unexcused absentees, work made up will not receive full credit.

I reserve the right to make changes to my class rules. Students will be notified of any changes.
