Textbook Information
There is no required textbook for this course; however, students will have
access to a textbook we will use electronically and in class.
Materials
The following supplies are required:
1. 2-INCH three ring binder (get this ASAP). We do not have a
textbook, so all materials will be paper copies provided in class.
2. Dividers (5-one per unit).
3. Flash drive and/or google drive account (to work on projects at
school/home)
4. Scientific Calculator TI-36X Pro recommended-A calculator is Not
optional, students will not be able to use their phones during
tests.
5. Mechanical Pencils and Colored Pencils
6. Colored Markers
7. 2 Composition Notebooks/Glue Sticks
8. Index cards
**Students are required to keep a binder, organized by units in chronological order. Note-
taking and organization are essential skills to college and career readiness. Students WILL
HAVE random notebook checks, so students must bring their binders to class every day.
Course Overview:
This is a course designed to follow the completion of Algebra II, Advanced Algebra,
Accelerated Geometry B/Algebra II or Accelerated Analytic Geometry B/Advanced Algebra.
The course will give students further experiences with statistical information and summaries,
methods of designing and conducting statistical studies, an opportunity to analyze various
voting processes, modeling of data, basic financial decisions, and use network models for
making informed decisions.
Prerequisite: Algebra II, Advanced Algebra, Accelerated
Geometry B/Algebra II or Accelerated Analytic Geometry B/Advanced Algebra

Instruction and assessment should include the appropriate use of manipulatives and
technology. Topics should be represented in multiple ways, such as concrete/pictorial,
verbal/written, numeric/data-based, graphical, and symbolic. Concepts should be introduced
and used, where appropriate, in the context of realistic phenomena.

Teaching and learning will focus on the following mathematical concepts (units):
Unit 0 Unit 1 Unit 2 Unit 3 Unit 4

Algebra
and Analyzing Decision
Statistical
Geometry Numerical Making in Probability

MYP Information
This course is part of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme at North Atlanta High School which
aims to help IBMYP learners to become inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-
minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective. The learning experiences will allow students to gain analytical
skills to promote informed decision-making, engage in teamwork and collaboration, frame their own inquiries,
pursue personal aspirations, set challenging goals and have persistence to achieve them. Students will work
towards a deepening of their conceptual understanding as they approach concepts from a range of perspectives. As
concepts are studied throughout the year, the following global contexts will be in constant consideration: identities
and relationships, orientation in time and space, fairness and development, globalization and sustainability,
scientific and technical innovation, and personal and cultural expression. IBMYP Assessments aim to support and
courage student learning by providing feedback and promoting deep understanding of subject content by
supporting students in their inquiry in real-world contexts. Specific assessment criteria with subject objectives will
be provided. A year-long IBMYP personal project accompanied by a journal is to be produced at the end of the 10th
grade year. The personal project enables students to engage in practical exploration through a cycle of inquiry,
action, and reflection. Timelines and descriptions of tasks will be provided. Students will be assessed on a 0-7 IB
scale in order to receive an IB grade at the end of the course. The IB grade will not affect students’ transcript grades
and it is for IB reporting purposes only.
Grading Policy:
*All assignments should be completed in pencil and written legibly.*

A. Assignment Categories:
Summative Assessments 45%
Common Assessments, Unit Tests, Midterm Exam, Major Assignments, Projects,
Quizzes
Formative Assessments 45%
Homework, Classwork, Minor Assignments, Quizzes, Notebook Checks
Final Exam 10%

B. APS Grading Scale:


A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 F 0-69
APS policy requires the classroom teacher to give a deficiency notice to a
student whose average is 74 or below at any time during the term.
o When a deficiency is issued, it is the responsibility of the student to sign
the deficiency and take it home to be signed by the parent or guardian.
o Students who receive a grade below ‘C’ as a final semester grade
without receiving a deficiency notice may petition for a grade change
o Students can petition for a grade change no later than the last day of
the following semester.

C. Conduct
A - Excellent: Sets an example for others to follow; demonstrates desired
behaviors
B - Above Average: Consistently demonstrates satisfactory conduct
C - Average: Demonstrates conduct that needs improvement in some areas
F - Unacceptable: Seldom demonstrates desired behaviors and/or disrupts
instructional program

MAKING UP MISSED ASSIGNMENTS


It is the students’ and parents’ responsibility to make arrangements for make-up
work due to absences. Students should check the assignment calendar located on
the website and/or missing work crate upon return to class handouts. Students
should complete and submit missing work ASAP. Failure to comply with this
procedure will result in a grade of zero (0) being given for all graded assignments
missed during the absence.
LATE WORK
It is important that all students turn in assignments on time. Many assignments
build upon each other and missing work can result in gaps in the student’s
understanding of the course material. In cases where a student does not turn
in an assignment on time and there is no excused reason for the missed work,
students have the opportunity to turn in missed assignments within 2 weeks in
any class for all or some credit. For instance, if an assignment was due on
Monday the 1st, the late work must be turned in by Monday the 14th (whether
the class meets that day or not…student must hand deliver or email the work to
the teacher by the 14th day).
o Teachers have the right to make alternate assignments that cover the same
standards in place of the original assignment. Whether making up an alternate
or an original assignment, it is imperative that the STUDENT requests the
assignment from the teacher – it is not the teacher’s responsibility to remind
the student they did not turn in an assignment. Student’s must either request
this work via email or come after school to meet with the teacher to find out
what assignment they must complete. These discussions will not take place
during class time and should occur on a one-on-one basis.
o All late assignment work that is turned in within the 14 day deadline is subject
to partial credit per the teacher’s discretion. A minimum of 10 points per
day will be deducted.

Hello Parents,
As the instructor, I plan to facilitate an active learning environment in which
students feel free to participate, express their ideas and take academic risks. The
expectation is for each student to come prepared and eager to learn. Guiding
students with thought-provoking, open-ended questions and real-world applications, I
will assess student learning to enhance the learning experience and ultimately,
increase student achievement. I look forward to an exciting, academically
challenging, and productive 2018-2019 school year.
Progress reports will be sent home for all students at the midpoint of each nine
weeks. This is to inform of your child’s status so the appropriate actions can be taken
for the student to improve. Also, I ask that you take advantage of our online
resources. Please use my website http://briannadanielsnahs.weebly.com
I also encourage parents, as well as students, to join Remind 101 for reminders about
assignments and activities.
Join Remind by
1. texting @dansamdm to 81010, or by
2. downloading the free app (recommended) and entering the class code @dansamdm.
Additionally, the school system provides Infinite Campus, an online grade book
where you can view your child’s assignments, grades, and attendance. These
resources are made available as a means for you to become actively involved your
child’s education.
