Transcript of Intro to Mrs. Pruitt-Britton
Likes Who is this teacher as a person? YES! Always! Will My Teacher Treat Me Fairly? In the event of a misunderstanding, we will work until we have an understanding. What if we have a misunderstanding? Our classroom goals are to meet state, school, and class expectations and to meet the standards and expectations we set for ourselves. Classroom Goals This course is Algebra 2. What will I be doing in this class?
This course is designed to build on algebraic and geometric concepts. It develops advanced algebra skills such as systems of equations, advanced polynomials, imaginery and complex numbers, quadratics, and concepts. Students should take Pre-calculus next. We will do take notes in a 3 subject notebook, classwork, experiments, projects, quizzes and tests. Quizzes and tests are considered summative assessment in this class. 70% of the student's grade will be determined by tests and quizzes. How will I be graded in this class? 30% of the student's grade will be determined by classwork, experiments, bell-ringers, binder check and homework. There are five rules in this classroom. They are the behavior expectations for all individuals in the classroom all day. What are the rules in this classroom? First Behavior Expectation #1 Come to class prepared to learn. #2 Respect all property. Second Behavior Expectation #3 Respect all ideas given in class and do not criticize anybody’s ideas or thoughts. Third Behavioral Expectation #4 Respect all persons. Fourth Behavioral Expectation #5 Respect class procedures. Fifth Behavioral Expectation Following expectations will result in . . . verbal acknowledgement
a stress-free learning environment
a pleasant and orderly
classroom atmosphere Any of the following at any step, time, point, etc.:
an in-class behavior assignment due before any academic work is accepted
an out-of-class behavior assignment due before any academic work is accepted
any additional steps that solve the problem Not following expectations may result in... Any student who uses profanity, fights, damages school property (this includes the property of the teacher and other students), or is disrespectful (as defined by the teacher) must leave the classroom and report directly to the office. Severe Clause This classroom is a “No Whining Zone.” That means that there will be no whining, for ANY reason.
Everything that I do is in your best interest, so please…respect the “No Whining Zone” this semester. No Whining Zone The teacher dismisses you, not the bell.
Do not start packing up prior to the bell.
Wait until the teacher finishes and officially dismisses you with: “Have a nice day.” Class Dismissal I’m here first because I care deeply about you and your abilities, and secondly because I love teaching math. I hope you are here to develop your brain, your present thinking skills, and to prepare for the bright future ahead of you. Remember . . . Your future is yours for the taking! Math is an important part of your future. I will do my part--and I’m counting on you to do yours--to make it as likely and efficient as possible for you to be successful in math class. Know that I believe in you! Have an awesome year!
