Required Materials


  • 3-ring binder (1 -inch)

  • Pencils with erasers
  • 1 red pen
  • Color pencils to keep at home
  • Calculator (see below)
  • Textbook



The TI-84 Plus graphing calculator is required for all high school mathematics courses.  We will use calculators throughout this course for both in-class assignments/activities and homework.  The TI-84 Plus will be allowed on many assessments in this class, and it is approved for use on the ACT exam.  Students are expected to bring their calculator to class daily.  Please see me if you are unable to purchase the TI-84 Plus.  If you choose to use a graphing calculator other than the TI-84, it must be approved for use on the ACT exam and it will be your responsibility to learn the appropriate key strokes.

  • 1st semester grade
    • 1st quarter 40%

      • 3rd quarter 30%

      • End of course exam 25%
      • Final Grade

Assignments and assessments will be assigned a point value.  Each quarter grade will be calculated by dividing the number of points earned by the total number of points possible.



Homework will be assigned regularly and will be checked at the beginning of class.  To receive credit for an assignment, ALL problems must be attempted with all processes shown.  Be prepared to demonstrate understanding of key concepts in a lesson check.
