I am very excited to be returning to MCHS this year. I have lived in Clarksville since 2017, and my husband is a US Army soldier stationed at Fort Campbell. I have more than eight years educational experience as an instructional assistant, substitute, and teacher in the math department. I am typically available during the week before and after school for students to seek additional help in their classes. Please do not hesitate to email me or call if you have any questions or concerns. My extension is 2602. It's going to be a great year!

Algebra II Syllabus 2018-2019

Mrs. Viall – Room 602

kimberly.viall@cmcss.net

Academic standards, chosen by the Tennessee State Board of Education, provide a common set of expectations for what students should know and be able to do at the end of a specific grade or course. Local school districts determine the order in which these state-mandated standards are addressed in their schools. For a breakdown of standard pacing and course objectives for Algebra II students in the Clarksville Montgomery County School System, please visit the Curriculum Navigator on the CMCSS homepage found at: http://curriculum.cmcss.net/public/index.aspx

It is the policy of the Clarksville Montgomery County School System to follow the dictates of state statutes in the selection and use of all instructional materials. Parents or legal guardians may request to review any instructional materials used in the classroom of the parent or legal guardian’s child following the guideline set forth in Instructional Policy INS-A073 found at: http://www.cmcss.net/departments/instruction/departmentforms.aspx

The chart below outlines the units of study for Algebra II and possible major assignments or field trips that could be used to enhance student learning or solidify mastery of standards in each unit. This chart is not inclusive of every assignment for Algebra II, as additional or different assignments may be created based on the needs of students. Specific details for major assignments will be shared with students and parents or legal guardians as the standards related to the assignments are addressed in class.

Algebra II Rules and Policies 2017-2018

CLASS RULES:         Polite; Punctual; Participate; Prepared; Positive

  1. Follow all instructions the first time that they are given.
  2. Raise your hand for permission to speak or leave your seat.
  3. No food or drinks in the classroom, unless otherwise directed by the teacher.
  4. Be prepared and in your seat when the bell rings.
  5. Do not throw anything.

All school rules will also be followed. Every student has a right to learn. If a student chooses to break a rule or disrupt class in any way, interfering with this right, there will be consequences.

CONSEQUENCES:

  1. Warning
  2. Behavior notification (through Guidance Office)
  3. Parent contact
  4. Discipline referral (A tardy is written up on the third offense).

LATE WORK:

Students will receive 5 late work passes/redo passes per quarter. This allows them to redo or turn in work up to four school days after the deadline. Late work is not accepted for in-class work or Bellringers. Late passes do not allow students to skip assignments.

MAKE-UP WORK:

It is the student’s responsibility to obtain and complete missed assignments. Students may check the OneNote notebook, or the designated area in my room to write down the assignments they missed, and be sure to pick up any handouts they might need. Students will have the equivalent number of days absent to complete work before it is considered late.

GRADING:

Grades will be calculated by dividing total points earned by total possible points. Most assignments will fit into the categories below:

  • In-Class work: You Try’s during guided notes, online activities such as Kahoot, Stuff You Must Know Cold (SYMKC), Bellringers, Exit Tickets
  • Classwork/Homework will be given almost every day, and will be graded for effort. In order to receive credit, work must be shown.
  • Quizzes/Tests will be given frequently to assess student understanding and mastery of particular content standards. Students will typically be allowed to use a provided index cards worth of notes during quizzes and tests.
  • Projects will provide opportunities for students to apply their knowledge of Algebra II concepts.

ASSESSMENT RETAKES

Students may retake most assessments by filling out a Request to Retest form. Students must complete their retake within a week of the original assessment’s date. Students must complete retakes during their own time (before or after school, or during 3rd period Tuesday or Thursday). Retakes will not be completed during regular class time.

 

 

CHEATING:

There is an appropriate time and place for students to assist each other. Help consists of explaining how to do something, not simply providing the answer. If a student is suspected of cheating, it will be noted in the PowerSchool gradebook, parents will be contacted, and that student may need to redo the work in order to prove mastery.

TECHNOLOGY USE:

Laptops are provided to enhance student learning. We will use OneNote in the class regularly as part of guided note-taking. Students are not permitted to use laptops in class for activities other than those directed by the teacher. Students who are found to be using their laptop for other activities will be subject to the consequences listed above.

LEAVING THE ROOM:

Students will leave the room for emergencies only. My expectation is that students will not ask to go to the restroom more than three times per quarter. Going to a locker or getting a drink of water is not considered an emergency.

REQUIRED MATERIALS:

Students will need their laptops as much of our notetaking will be done on the application OneNote. Students will also need a TI-84 Calculator. I have a classroom set that students may use in class and there are applications on their laptop that operate similarly. Other supplies include: bound notebook, lined paper, writing utensils, etc. Additionally, students may want a set of earbuds in order to listen to helpful video links without disturbing others. Supply donations of tissues, hand sanitizer, lotion, pencils, paper, erasers, are not required but are always appreciated.
