Course Description: Foundations of Math 1 is a year long course that breaks down the domains of the Math 1 curriculum into smaller pieces to enable students to gain a stronger understanding of the principles of High School level Math. We will master the following topics by the end of the year in order to score proficient on the State Math 1 End of Course Test to be given in May. Topics that will be covered in the first semester are; Solving Equations, Solving Inequalities, Linear Functions, Exponential Functions, Arithmetic Sequences, Geometric Sequences, and some Geometry. We will finish out the year mastering the following concepts; Systems of Equations, more Geometry, Statistics, and Quadratic Equations.
Required Materials: Pencils/Pens, Three ringed binder (1 or 2 in), Loose Leaf paper, Graph Paper Erasers, colored pencils, glue sticks, and IPADS(charged).
Communication Procedure: If you need to contact me, email is probably the quickest way for me to answer or address all concerns. You may call the school and leave me a message and I will get back with you as soon as I can. If you would like a parent teacher conference please contact me and we will set it up at a date and time that is convenient for both of us.
Attendance Policy: Students must be in an environment where they can accomplish the day’s tasks. Students will need to log in to the Zoom meeting and have the cameras on at the appropriate time. Students who are not present will be marked absent in accordance with the county attendance and tardy policy.
Bathroom Policy: Students are to use the bathroom in between classes. Students will only be allowed to go in case of emergencies.
Food/Drink Policy: Students are not allowed ANY food or drink in class except for documented medical reasons. Water bottles with only water are allowed. Gum is NEVER allowed in Coach Sabdo’s room, students who can not adhere to this policy will be referred to administration for insubordination.
Major Assignments: 30%
Minor Assignments: 25%
Digital Work: 20%
IPAD POLICY: We will be using the Ipads everyday, students need to have them and they need to be charged ready for use. If students have a problem with their Ipad they need to address the school. Below are the consequences for not having the Ipad or it not being charged: 1st Offense:Verbal warning: student charges Ipad during class and does the assigned work on paper. 2nd Offense: Verbal warning student charges Ipad during class and does the assigned work on paper for half credit. 3rd Offense: Students will be sent to ISS for the class period and receive a Zero on that day's assignment. Consequences reset at the beginning of each nine weeks.
Late Work/Missing Work: I do NOT accept any late work under any circumstances. Students who do not turn work in on the date it is due will receive a grade of ZERO on that assignment. Students who are absent on a due date are expected to turn assigned work in on the day they return from their absence. Students who are absent when work is assigned will be given an equal number of days to complete the assignment. Failure to turn the work in on that date will result in a ZERO for the grade on that assignment.
Test Corrections: I do allow students to correct ALL tests to receive half of their missed points added to their test score. Students must turn the corrections on the assigned date they are due to earn their points back. No late test corrections are accepted.
I look forward to a wonderful semester, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me either by phone or by email.
