**G. Materials: The following materials will be needed in class each day. You need materials by
**

Tuesday, August 27, 2013. If you enter class later in the year, please have

materials by your second day in class.

1) Spiral Notebook for note-taking (2 one-subject notebooks or 1 three-subject notebook for

the year)

2) 1½ inch or greater, 3 ring hard notebook with paper and 4-6 dividers; see separate sheet

for required set-up specifications.

3) Pencils

4) Compass

5) Notebook pencil pouch (optional)

6) Protractor with ruler edge

7) Calculator (any scientific calculator will do at this level but a graphing calculator will be

needed in Algebra 2 so plan accordingly). You are responsible for knowing how to

operate your scientific calculator. TI- 89 or TI- Inspire are preferred for PreCalcH and

above.

**H. Specific Behavorial Expectations:
**

1) Students are expected to treat all teachers, substitutes, and fellow classmates with respect.

Respect includes paying attention, listening to directions, refraining from obscene or

inappropriate language, not disturbing the class, staying in your seat, speaking in a

respectful tone at all times, not touching anyone’s else’s person or property, and not

interfering in any way with someone’s right to learn.

2) The school’s attendance, tardy and cell phone policies will be enforced without

exception; these may be found on the CCSD website.

3) Come to class prepared with all the materials you will need.

4) When you are given time to work on assignments during class use this time wisely. Get

your work done or get the help you need.

5) No food or drink of any kind is allowed in the classroom.

6) All school rules apply in this classroom.

7) Hall passes are a privilege, not a right, and are issued at the teachers’ sole discretion.

8) When the school rules are not followed Progressive discipline is implemented. The

consequences, in order, are as follows: student/teacher conference, parent/teacher

conference, detention, referral to dean. Note: some infractions such as: insubordination,

fighting, vandalism, etc. are automatic dean or school police referrals.

Rancho High School Math Class Guidelines

Grading:

10% Notebook: Notebook quizzes will be given frequently.

10% Practice Work: Due next class day. You must have all unit practice work turned in turned

in before re-taking a unit test.

If absence is excused then missed Practice work is due the next class day.

If absence is a school activity then assigned Practice work is due the day before the missed class

day.

10% Quizzes: Taken in class.

If absence is excused then missed Quizzes are to be taken within three days after returning.

If absence is a school activity then Quizzes are to be taken the day before the missed class day.

70% Tests: Taken in class. Calculator may be used on some tests.

If absence is excused the test is taken the next class day before or after school.

If absence is a school activity then the test is taken ahead of time either in class or during the day

before the missed class day. Not during your scheduled class, as we will be reviewing.

Failure to make-up a test within the time constraints noted above will result in a 0% score. If a

student has a prearranged school activity the teacher must be notified by the student ahead of

**time. The student must make arrangements for getting missed notes, assignments, or making up
**

tests.

**Textbook Work Format
**

1. Write your name and class period clearly at the right hand top of each page, along with the

assignment number (chapter and section), and the page number/problem numbers. Put your name on

all pages.

Practice Work should be labeled in upper right hand corner.

EX:

Name

John Doe

Period

3

Chapter-Section

3-5

Page and problem numbers

pg 345 #1-19 odds, 23, 25, 31-45odd

2. Use 3 hole punched standard-sized paper or graph paper with no “fringe” running down the side as a

result of the paper’s having been torn out of a spiral notebook.

3. Attach your pages with a staple in the upper left corner.

4. Clearly indicate the number of the problem you are doing. If you accidentally do a problem out of

order include a note to the teacher, referring to the location of the missing work.

5. Do all of your work in PENCIL, with mistakes cleanly erased, not crossed or scratched out. Write

legibly, suitably large and suitably dark. If the teacher cannot read both your work and your answer, it is

wrong.

6. Write neatly, with each succeeding step immediately below the previous step. Begin the next problem

below the preceding one, not off to the right. Do not work in more than two columns down the page, like

a newspaper.

7. Keep all work within the margins. If you run out of room at the bottom of the page, continue the

problem at the top of either the next column or the next page, whichever is appropriate. Do not try to

squeeze lines together at the bottom of the page.

8. Leave one blank line between one problem and the next.

9. Show all of your steps as demonstrated by the teacher in class, but any work that is scribbled in the

margins belongs on scratch paper, not on your work. Do “scratch work,” but do it on scratch paper.

10. BOX in final answer.

**Geometry Math Class Specifics
**

10% Notebook – Checked by way of frequent notebook quizzes. All papers should be neat and

in their proper dividers. Different criteria are checked each time. Notebooks may be brought in

a day or two before the test, on your own time, and checked to make sure everything is correct.

This should be an easy 100%.

10% Practice Work - All work must be shown to receive credit. All accompanying diagrams

must be neatly drawn and labeled to receive credit. Failure to draw diagrams will result in

a 0 score. Failure to follow the math class practice work guideline directions will result in a

0 score.

10% Quizzes- Quizzes will be given periodically throughout the course to ensure learning.

70% Tests – All test grades are recorded in this category. All work and substitution steps should

be shown on your tests.

***There is NO Extra Credit work***

Test Re-Takes: You may re-take a test granted you are not missing any assignments for that unit

and you complete a set of test review problems. The re-take score replaces the original score in

the grade-book.

**Grade Reports: Grades will be available on ParentLink. Grades are updated at least weekly.
**

Please contact your counselor for your ParentLink password. It is the same as your middle school

password. https://parentlink.ccsd.net

**Citizenship: Grades are given quarterly and are subjective. The grade is based on my evaluation
**

of you as a cooperative, contributing member of this class. Things considered are attitude,

attentiveness, punctuality, courtesy, behavior, participation, and preparation.

**Academic Integrity: The teacher assumes honesty on the part of all students. Scholastic
**

dishonesty, which includes, but is not limited to cheating on tests and/or assignments, plagiarism,

and collusion will not be tolerated. Students will receive a "F" for any assignment or test where

the student has violated this policy.

This page must be signed and returned to class

Dear Parent/Guardian

**

moment to read these expectations, especially the grading section and sign the acknowledgement sheet.

The strongest ally I have in the classroom is you. The combined efforts of parents and teachers produce

the most positive results in your child’s education. Thank you in advance for your support and feel free to

call me at school or e-mail me if you have any concerns or comments. My e-mail address is:

ejdercole@interact.ccsd.net

Please note that PRACTICE WORK is given every night. If your child is not doing math practice work

every night he/she is probably failing the course. Please check on them periodically as it is very easy to

fall behind in a math class.

Your students’ Geometry grade is posted on ParentLink and is updated weekly. This may be accessed at

http://paretlink.ccsd.net or by phone at 799-4433. There is also a free ParentLink app for both android

and iOS phones so you may easily check your child’s grades.
