Syllabus

OVERVIEW

In this course, there will be a heavy focus placed on the development and honing of problem solving skills. This course is designed to develop successful strategies for passing the Integrated Algebra Regents Exam (Thursday, June 18, 2015 at 9:15 am).

Goals

The aim of this course is to provide each student with the skills needed to have a solid understanding of Algebra. A solid understanding means that each student meets and/or masters all topics, which comprise Integrated Algebra. Most importantly, this course will prepare you for the Integrated Algebra Regents Exam. In order to best prepare, students will be constantly reassessed throughout the semester on all topics previously covered in our class.

EXPECTATIONS

1. SHOW UP, every single day. OWN YOUR LEARNING.


I expect you to attend class daily. You must be present in order to gain the skills necessary to ensure you have a solid foundation in Algebra. Our class would not be the same without you. Only YOU can own your learning.



2. RESPECT, everyone and everything.


We are a team. We support each other. We encourage each other. We respect each other in all capacities. RESPECT YOURSELF and make your education your PRIORITY- it will pay off BIG!


3. TRY, mistakes are proof that you are trying.


Mistakes are encouraged- that’s why we use pencils in this course. Mistakes are necessary and valuable—embrace them, learn from them, ask questions, adjust accordingly. You sell yourself short every single time you chose not to try.


4. WORK HARD, and never give up.


Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. Don’t be lazy. Always strive for better. Promise yourself to be persistent. It doesn’t matter how fast you go as long as you don’t stop.


5. NO NEGATIVE thoughts allowed.



Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right (Henry Ford). You can. You will.


6. BE PREPARED.



You will need a positive attitude and a writing instrument. I have the calculators, notebooks, computers and rulers.

IDP Digital Citizenship Policy
