## Student Requirements

### In The Classroom

Students will be considered unprepared and given a misdemeanor if they:

- Are not ready to take notes (you must have paper and pencil or pen.)
- Do not have a textbook or cannot share a textbook without my assistance.
- Do not have a working calculator or cannot share one without my assistance. (You cannot share calculators on tests.)
- Are not seated and ready to work when the bell rings: notebooks should be open, homework out, etc.

### Notebook

The notebook should be a binder with three sections:

- Class notes.
- Homework.
- Returned tests for the term.

Here is the Notebook Rubric for grading when they are collected.

All these requirements are so that YOU can justify that you've done the work to earn the grade, in case I make a mistake or you think you deserve a better grade.

### Textbook

Students must cover their textbooks, and are responsible for returning them in good condition.

### Calculator

**You are required to have a TI-83 or TI-84 series calculator.** These are the kinds of calculators allowed on standardized tests, and I will not help you with other sorts of calculators.

### Homework

Department policy is +2 points added to your grade for all homework complete on time. -1 if you are missing 3, -2 missing 4, etc.

### Tests

School policy is that you have three school days after returning from an excused absence to make up tests. It is up to you to schedule the make-up test.

## Schedule

Rough pacing guide:

- T1: to be determined...
- T2: to be determined...
- T3: to be determined...
- T4: to be determined...
- T5: to be determined...

## Quotations

Lazarus Long, a character in Robert Heinlein's "Time Enough For Love":

Anyone who cannot cope with mathematics is not fully human. At best he is a tolerable subhuman who has learned to wear shoes, bathe and not make messes in the house.
