CLASS INFORMATION:

  • Students are required to bring the following to class each day:  AP Stats textbook, Stats notes, math notebook/binder, pencils/erasable pens, notebook paper, and a GRAPHING calculator (sticky notes, colored pencils, glue stick, and highlighters are also recommended!)
  • Students must have a 3-ring binder for their math assignments; papers should be labeled, dated, and kept in chronological order, beginning with this information sheet
  • Students in Honors math classes at NBHS are expected to study nightly, complete homework assignments when assigned, & get extra help as needed before/after school!
  • Progress reports/midterms which should be shared with parents/guardians
  • All make-up work is the student’s responsibility; following an absence, the student must check the class calendar on the front right bulletin board, the student should check with a classmate for any missed notes, and the student should see the teacher before or after class about make-up worksheets, activities, and assessments they need to make up
  • Assignments, activities, and assessments should be done in pencil or erasable pen [so mistakes are easily detected and corrected!]
  • Cell phones will need to be kept in the locker or in your bookbag.  You do not need your cellphone during math class unless it is a teacher directed activity.

 

CLASS GRADING:

  • Each 9-weeks avg will be:  50 % assessments (tests), 30 % quizzes, and 20% daily grades
  • A Final Exam will count as 25% of the final class average
  • Extra credit will not be offered at any time during the semester
  • Students will be given many opportunities to come during each unit for extra help/tutoring if necessary for understanding the material to be better prepared for each test [retesting will not be an option]
