SYLLABUS
Instructor: Brad Coffey
Phone # 517-945-4714
Textbooks: Precalculus A Graphing Approach
Holt, Rinehart, and Winston c2006
Course Description:
This course will cover the topics of number patterns, Equations and Inequalities, functions and graphs, polynomial and rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, all trigonometric concepts, analytic geometry, and limits and continuity. This continued study of advanced topics in algebra and trigonometry will prepare the student to take Calculus.
Performance Objectives:
Students will:
Solve advanced equations and inequalities graphically and algebraically.
Study functions and graphs of functions. Also, the student will find the inverse of functions and learn to transform these functions.
Learn to graph polynomial functions and find the zeroes of these functions.
Learn about exponential growth and decay, work with exponential functions, logarithmic functions and properties of logarithmic functions. They will learn the applications of common logarithms, the natural base (e), and solve equations using logarithms.
Learn the six trigonometric functions, their graphs and inverses. Use them to solve right triangle problems. Learn the difference between degree and radian measure and finding arc lengths. The student will also solve trigonometric equations and prove trigonometric identities.
Learn to identify and write the equations for conic sections such as circles, parabolas, ellipses and hyperbolas. They will also learn how to solve systems of equations involving these conic sections.
Learn to solve systems of equations using matrices and use the basic operations of matrices.
Learn the basic concepts of the limit of a function and continuity of functions.
EXPECTATIONS FOR PRECALCULUS
In attendance for 90% of the class days
Participate in class discussions
All make-up tests and quizzes will be taken during lunch, Forum, or after school within 3 days. Or the student will receive a zero for that assignment. It is the students responsibility to communicate with the teacher as to when they will make up the work. If a students absence is unexcused they will receive a zero for the any work due that day.
If a student is absent for school business they are responsible for the work they missed that day. If there is a test or quiz on the day they return then they will be expected to take it with the class.
Be responsible for the calculator assigned to them and make financial restitution for any damage done to the calculator assigned to them
Do all homework
Do well on tests
Always doing the best possible!!!!
Grading and Testing
Homework:
Homework will be checked randomly for completeness (this will be worth 5 points). Homework will be collected each Friday (or the last day of the week). Up to six questions from the weeks assignments will be selected for each student to record on a separate sheet of paper. This will be worth 20 points each week. Other questions may be collected randomly during the week also.
The marking period grades will be computed as follows:
Quizzes --- 30%
Tests --- 40%
Homework --- 20%
Employability Skills --- 10%
Employability Skills
This category involves class participation, writing assignments, portfolio piece, etc.
Portfolio piece Each student must turn in a portfolio piece that could be used for their portfolio. This is due before Christmas break for 1st semester and before Memorial Day weekend 2nd semester.
Grading Scale (by percent):
93-100 A87-89 B+77-79 C+67-69 D+90-92 A-84-86 B74-76 C64-66 D80-83 B-70-73 C-60-63 D-59 & below E
Rubric for grading most test and quiz individual short answer or solving questions on a 5 point scale (Most Multiple choice questions will be worth 3 points each):
0-5 points per part, each part of the question is worth five points.
0 pts for no response or unrelated response
1 pt for response that is related to question, but hard to understand
2 pts response has major errors; only half of answer is correct; correct answer, but no explanation
3 pts response is complete, but involves minor errors in calculation or explanation that is incorrect; indicates some understanding of mathematical ideas, but in an unclear way
4 pts response is complete and correct; involves explanations that are understandable and complete
5 pts response is complete and correct, but goes beyond minimum requirement of the problem
Materials needed daily:
Pencils (absolutely no pen for work that will be turned in, you will receive a zero for that assignment), notebook, folder, textbook, and calculator.
** You should do everything in pencil in this class.
Classroom Rules:
Be quiet and listen when the teacher talks.
Be inside the door when the bell rings ready to work.
Be polite to classmates, no putdowns.
Stay seated when someone is addressing the class.
No cell phones, i-pods, or mp3 players. If they are seen they will be taken and give to Mr. McCalla.
***** THIS SYLLABUS IS A GUIDE TO BE USED AT THE DISCRETION OF THE TEACHER.
HOW TO STUDY FOR A TEST
Make a list of specific objectives that will be on the test.
Find examples and problems for each objective you have listed. Work them.
Learn definitions of new words. Try writing these definitions from memory to see if you really know the word.
Begin to review the objectives several days before the test. Review a few of them each day.
Look for and try to recall general patterns. Study previous quizzes. Look in particular at problems that you did incorrectly.
Select problems from past homework assignments (and not just the easy ones). Rework the problems. Compare the results with your original homework results.
Do not just scan your homework and previous tests. Instead, pick up a pencil and do the problem again.
Concentrate on objectives that gave you trouble on previous tests. Work problems that you did incorrectly the first time.
