Algebra II Syllabus 2013-2014

Algebra II Syllabus



Required Material:



Calculator – You can rent one from the bookstore (quantities limited), or purchase one. They cost around $12.00


Basic Overview:

Students are required to take four years of mathematics. Algebra 2 fulfills one of your requirements for graduation. Topics this year will include polynomials, graphing concepts, conics, variations and systems of equations and inequalities.



I expect that every student comes to class prepared and ready to learn. I expect that you behave appropriately while you are at Washington High School. Students will be evaluated on their class work and homework (10%), tests and quizzes (70%) as well as the semester final (20%).



100 – 90 A

89 – 80   B

79 – 70   C

69 – 60   D

59 – 0     F



Most tests will be taken in class twice. If you still have a low score after the retest you are still allowed to come in after school to retake any outcome as long as it is before the given deadline. There will also be deadlines to turn in past due assignments. These dates will be clearly stated by the teacher and posted in the classroom.


Remember that failure in this class may result in retaking the class in a trailer class, during summer school, or even the next school year in which you would most likely have two math classes.
