COURSE DESCRIPTION
The fundamental purpose of Algebra 1 CC is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in the middle
grades. The critical areas, organized into units, deepen and extend understanding of linear relationships, in part by contrasting
them with exponential phenomena, and in part by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend. Algebra 1 CC
uses algebra to deepen and extend understanding of geometric knowledge from prior grades. The final unit in the course ties
together the algebraic and geometric ideas studied. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and,
together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject
that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.

MAKE-UP WORK:

All pre-assigned work will be due on the day of a student’s return to school. Students with excused absences will be given up to five days
to make up daily work that was assigned while you were absent. Assignments will be posted each unit on the school website.
www.brookwoodhighschool.net It is the student’s responsibility to speak with the teacher regarding scheduling of make-up work
immediately upon returning from an absence. If you are absent on the day of a test or quiz, then you will be expected to take that test or
quiz during class or after school the day you return. If a student returns from an absence on the day of a test or quiz, and has been present
for all of the material assessed on that test or quiz (i.e. having only missed “review”, etc. time), he or she must take the test or quiz as
scheduled.

E – MAIL ADDRESS: Email is the quickest way to contact Mr. Kelley.

HONOR CODE SUMMARY:
   An essential part of education is developing a sense of honor, responsibility, and citizenship. Self-esteem and self-respect grow from
meeting challenges with honesty and individual effort. The Brookwood academic integrity policies are similar to those found at
universities.
   The Honor Code lists Brookwood’s expectations of its student citizens. Cheating includes any attempt to defraud, deceive, or mislead a
teacher in arriving at an accurate assessment of student achievement. The Honor Code booklet provides general examples of violations
and then explains more specific examples in the categories of homework, tests, research papers, essays, lab reports, and calculators.
Every student is expected to familiarize him- or herself with the contents of the Honor Code and ask for further explanation if
necessary. Consequences for violation of the Honor Code can be quite serious and far-reaching.




Mr. Kelley’s classroom Rules.

My goal is to help each one of you learn to your fullest potential. I want to encourage good behavior and alleviate all distractions. I
will demand that each of my students abide by the rules below and all of the rules in your student handbook and in your student
agenda.



     1.   Come into the classroom quietly and walk directly to your assigned seat. Students are not allowed to stand in the
          doorway, or outside in the hallway.
     2.   Do not get out of your seat without teacher permission until the bell rings ending the period.
     3.   Come to class prepared to learn. Bring your textbook, calculator, notebook, and pencil to class every day.
     4.   While in class students will not be allowed to talk until called on by the teacher.
     5.   Raise your hand to ask a question, and again don’t speak until the teacher has called on you.
     6.   No food will be allowed in the classroom.
     7.   Students will not be allowed to have drinks in class unless they have a screw top lid.
     8.   Students will not be allowed to ball up paper, make or have any type of projectiles in class.
I have read the syllabus for Algebra 1 CC, and I understand Mr. Kelley’s classroom rules.
