## Trigonometry Course Overview : Syllabus, Curricular Alignment, Policies, & Practices

#### TextBook & Resources :

• Trigonometry, 11th Ed., 2017
• Lial, Hornsby, Schneider, Daniels
• ISBN: 978-0-13-421743-7
• Graphing calculator such as a TI-83 or TI-84 (any version).

• Notebook(s) for notes and homework. Each homework problem must include -

1. copy of the original problem,

2. copy of correct solution [often from back of textbook], and

3. include steps that connect the problem with the solution (with explanation/justification as appropriate).

•

2. #### Summative (i.e. test) scores are designed to identify what skills and content knowledge have been mastered up to that point in the students progression through the course. Solutions to the summative assesments are usually NOT provided as the scores are NOT designed for student improvement of content understanding. These scores will be the primary determination of grades beyond pass/fail or "D" and are appropriate for comparision between peer groups (peer groups may be in the same class, course, school, state, country, or world-wide).

• Semester Scores are calculated using the following table:
Semester Score Component Semester Score Weight
1st & 2nd Quarter Progress Scores 80%
Comprehensive Semester Final Exam 20%
• Progress Scores will be calculated on a category weight basis. Each assessment will fall under one of 3 categories.
Category for Progress Score Progress Score Weight
Daily Work (formative) 20%
Quizzes (formative) 25%
Tests (summative) 55%
• Late assignments will given a score of zero (0)...except for unplanned excused absences which will be scored as specified in the student handbook.
• Scores will NOT be rounded up.
• Bonus work or bonus points are NOT part of the course score and will be included ONLY at the discretion of the teacher. Students should not EXPECT bonus points or bonus work...even if it is listed on the syllabus.
• Scores will be primarily based on individual ability, understanding, and accomplishment but there MAY be group work with scores that impact one or more assessment categories.
• Progress and Semester GRADES will be calculated from corresponding scores based on the following table:
Percentage Scale

(10-10-10-10)

100% - 90% A
89.99% - 80% B
79.99% - 70% C
69.99% - 60% D
59.99% - 1% F
0.99% - 0% Incomplete

#### Policy & Practices : Student & Teacher Responsibilities

• In Seat & Ready to Go when bell stops (i.e. books, sharpened pencils, paper)
• Respectful of Teacher and Each Other (i.e. raise your hand, don't talk while teacher is talking, no rudeness or bad language, etc.)
• The two most important ingredients for success in this class are practice and attendance.
• No eating or drinking in class, 2 bathroom/drinking trips per Semester.
• Maintain at least 3 backup copies of all work. A "lost" or "destroyed" program will receive zero credit.
• Remember that, for every hour spent in class, 2 hours of outside class work (homework/projects) are typical for an AP course (i.e. 5 hours in class per week + 10 hours at home)

#### Responsibilities while absent:

 Notes and Homework Test and Quizzes Get notes from a peer or online. Read the section and look at examples. Get the assignment from the calendar, web page or a peer in class. Do the assignment, even if you need help come in before or after school for assistance! As per school policy you have the same amount of days as you were absent to make up missing test/quizzes. Any test/quiz not made up in the appropriate amount of time will be a zero. You may need to schedule time with Mr. Meinzen either before or after school to meet or receive appropriate help on a timely basis...plan accordingly!

#### Policy : BYOD

• TI84 or equivelant graphing calculator with statistical capabilities is allowed.
• Phones and/or uncovered cameras are, generally, NOT allowed because they are rarely appropriate in the classroom except in teacher-approved circumstances.
• Example 1 : Students who intentionally or unintentionally compromise the privacy of any other student or compromise academic integrity or validity of a test or quiz by their behavior may expect a zero and, possibly, a referal for further consequences. This includes having a personal camera (i.e. smartphone/BYOD device) out while ANY assessment is in the classroom (not just their own assessment).
• Example 2 : A student who turns in their test and then takes out their smartphone (i.e. camera)for their own reason (i.e. listen to music) while other students are still working on their tests may expect to receive a zero on their test. As well, a student taking pictures of teacher's notes on the board--without teacher approval--will not likely retain/learn of concepts and may be invading the privacy of other students (white boards are highly reflective). Generally, if the teacher is taking the time to hand-write notes on the board, then students should put in the effort to copy the notes.
• Example 3 : A teacher-approved manner may occur if a course-appropriate website is blocked but is accessible via cell phone (i.e. cell tower versus wifi), the teacher may allow temporary access to that website to complete assignment.
• Example 4 : A student may have an identified disability that requires them to take pictures of the board in order to expand the image to very large size due to their visual disability.

#### Practices : Tardies and Absences

• Attendance is the responsibility of the student and their parents/guardian.
• Parents/Guardian may be contacted the next day via phone or email to inform them of any absences or student issues.
• First two tardies result in warnings, 3rd tardy is after school detention, 4th is Saturday detention, subsequent are suspensions.
• If you have an excused absence, you will be allowed to make up your work for full credit by the same number of days you were consecutively absent.
• Unexcused absences follow the same procedure as excused absence; however, you will only receive 50% of the grade you earn.
• Refer to the school attendance policy for complete details on excused and unexcused absences and make-up work.

#### Practices : Teacher Discipline

• I expect students to be respectful to each other and their teacher. Refer to the student handbook if you have questions.
• Students are expected to take notes, ask questions, and work consistently and continuously the entire class period.
• If problems occur in the class the discipline plan, in general, is:
• Verbal warning (may include "1 minute after class delayed dismissal" or "15 minute after school mini-detention")
• After school detention
• Referral to the dean
• Parents called or e-mailed

• Use mechanical pencils (have at least 2).
• Keep an organized notebook and a folder with all your assignments. Get two classmates’ phone numbers in case you need help.
• You will need to purchase a flash drive or other storage device for this class.
• Students must keep multiple backup copies of all work. It is the student's responsibility to be aware that technology is NOT perfect.
• If purchasing a disk/flashdrive is a problem, let me know
• WEBSITE for Assignments is http://www.meinzeit.com

#### What can I expect from the teacher ?

• You can expect the teacher to maintain a classroom atmosphere that is safe and conducive to the education of ALL students. Any student or group of students prevent or disrupt this will be discipline as outlined above.
• I will try to be available before and after school either in the classroom or in my office in Room 310 for extra help [unless a meeting is scheduled].
• I can be reached at EHS: jmeinzen@ecusd7.org or 656-7100.
• As well, I strongly encourage students and parents to contact me as soon as possible if there are any questions or difficulties.
• In general, I provide daily information on this website and I contact parents/guardians/students via the email address that is registered with the district. However, please let me know if you wish to be contacted by other means on this form. After you have read over this classroom policy, please sign below, and return to me to be put on file. This is your first assignment.

#### Survey Assignment

`
• What is your best learning environment (given the classroom we have)?
• What do you not want your teacher to do that would make you not want to learn this material?
• What learning/teaching style do you think is most effective for you?
• What resources do you use to best understand the concepts? (examples: textbook, teacher, family, after-school tutoring, specific website, etc.)?
• If you could start a realistic classroom tradition, what would it be? (example: every odd-numbered Friday is popcorn-during-lecture day)

#### Signature

•  I prefer to be contacted via (circle preference): EMAIL, or PHONE, or OTHER (specify) Print Parent/Guardian Name Print Student Name Parent / Guardian Signature Date Student Signature Date email address home phone work/cell phone
