Classroom Policy
Text Requirements
 Statistics in Action by Watkins, Scheaffer, Cobb; 2008 edition
 Graphing calculator such as a TI83 or TI84 (any version).
 Fathom 2.13 software for statistics will be used in the classroom/computer lab. Fathom is NOT required for home use but may be helpful. http://fathom.concord.org/
 Notebook(s) to record definitions, theorems, examples, and general notes. (including pencils, 4x6 note cards)
 Notebook(s) for all written homework 
 copy original problem,
 copy correct solution often from back of textbook, and
 include steps that connect the problem witht he solution (with explanation/justification as appropriate).
Grading
 Semester Scores are calculated using the following table:
Semester Score Component  Weight 

1st Semester Score  40% 
2nd Quarter Score  40% 
Semester Final Exam  20% 
 Quarter Scores will be calculated on a Weighted Category basis as shown in the following table.
 Each Weighted Category will be calculated on a total point basis within each category.
Category  Weight 

Daily Homework Work  10% 
Quizzes  10% 
Labs or Projects  30% 
Tests  50% 
 Notes:
 Late assignments will given a score of zero (0)...except for excused absences which will be scored as specified in the student handbook.
 Scores will NOT be rounded up.
 Bonus work or bonus points are NOT part of the course score and will be included ONLY at the discretion of the teacher.
 Students should not EXPECT bonus points or bonus work...even if it is listed on the syllabus.
 Scores will be primarily based on individual ability, understanding, and accomplishment.
 Quarter and Semester GRADES will be calculated from corresponding scores based on the following table:
Percentage Scale  Grade Letter 

100%  90%  A 
89.99%  80%  B 
79.99%  70%  C 
69.99%  60%  D 
59.99%  1%  F 
0.99%  0%  Incomplete 
BYOD Policy :
 A computer lab is available for students for this course. The
computers in the lab run the following software (see Resources
tab for details):
 Microsoft Windows 7 (Pro)
 Fathom
 While students may bring in their own computer to complete classroom assignments, there are specific devices that may not be compatible with the software.
 A general rule of thumb is to see if the device comes with a keyboard and mouse...if not, then usually the device cannot be used in the course. For example: MacBooks will work but iPads will not. Please see your teacher if you have specific questions about your device.
 Phones and/or uncovered cameras are NOT allowed in the classroom.
 Students who intentionally or unintentionally compromise the privacy of any other student or compromise academic integrity or validity of a test or quiz by their behavior will receive a zero and, possibly, a referal for further consequences. This includes having a camera (i.e. smartphone/BYOD device) out while ANY assessment is in the classroom.
 For example, a student who turns in their test and then takes out their smartphone (i.e. camera) to listen to music while other students are still working on their tests will receive a zero on their test. As well, a student taking pictures of teacher's notes on the board will not retain/learn of concepts and may be invading the privacy of other students (white boards are highly reflective). Generally, if the teacher is taking the time to handwrite notes on the board, then students should put in the effort to copy the notes.
Responsibilities & Expectations
 Student Responsibilities...
 ...while in class:
 In Seat & Ready to Go when bell stops (i.e. books, sharpened pencils, paper)
 Respectful of Teacher and each other (i.e. raise your hand, donâ€™t talk while teacher is talking, no rudeness or bad language, etc.)
 The two most important ingredients for success in this class are practice and attendance.
 No eating or drinking in class, 2 bathroom/drinking trips per Semester.
 Remember that, for every hour spent in class, 2 hours of outside class work (homework/projects) are typical for an AP course (i.e. 5 hours in class per week + 10 hours at home)
 ...while absent:
 Read the textbook and look at examples prior to returning.
 Obtain the assignment from the calendar, webpage, or a peer.
 Do the assignment or, at a minimum, have the homework problem written out along with answers (from back of book or peer).
 Obtain notes from a peer or teacher.
 Arrange to come in before or after school for assistance from the teacher.
 Grades will be as per school policy (see student handbook):
 for excused absences, you have the same number of days as you were absent to make up missing assignments/quizzes/tests.
 for unexecused absences, you will receive 80% or 50% of the earned grade based on the number of unexcused absences.
 any assignment/quiz/test not made up in the appropriate amount of time will be a zero.
 ...while in class:
 Teacher Responsibilities...
 Demonstrate mastery of mathematical content & educational pedagogy, professional and courteous behavior, and provide a timely & updated syllabus.
 Maintain a classroom atmosphere that is safe and conducive to the education of ALL students.
 Maintain discipline by ensuring students are respectful to each other and their teacher. Refer to the student handbook for any questions.
 If problems occur in the class, the discipline plan, in general, is:
 Verbal warning (may include "1 minute after class delayed dismissal" or "15 minute after school minidetention")
 After school detention & parents/guardians contacted (called or emailed)
 Referral to the administrator
 Be available before and after school [unless a meeting is scheduled] in the classroom or in the math office (Room A310) for extra help. However, a student often needs to schedule time to meet outside of the normal class period.
 I can be reached at 6567100 ext. 20311 or jmeinzen@ecusd7.org
 As well, I strongly encourage students and parents to contact me as soon as possible if there are any questions or concerns. Most issues can be quickly resolved through timely communication.
Advice
 Use mechanical pencils (have at least 2) and stay organized.
 Get two classmates' phone numbers in case you need help.
 WEBSITE for Assignments is http://www.ecusd7.org/ehs/ehsstaff/jmeinzen but remember that technology is NOT perfect.
 This class requires a great deal of selfdiscipline.
Survey Assignment
 What is your best learning environment (given the classroom we have)?
 What learning/teaching style do you think is most effective for you?
 What resources do you use to best understand the concepts? (examples: textbook, teacher, family, afterschool tutoring, specific website, etc.)?
 What do you not want your teacher to do that would make you not want to learn this material?
 If you could start a realistic classroom tradition, what would it be? (example: every oddnumbered Friday is popcornduringlecture day)
Signature
 In general, I provide daily information on this website and I contact parents/guardians/students via the email address that is registered with the district. However, please let me know if you wish to be contacted by other means on this form. After you have read over this classroom policy, please sign below, and return to me to be put on file. This is your first assignment.
I prefer to be contacted via (circle preference): EMAIL, or PHONE, or OTHER (specify)
