• Description
     
    Calculus is the study of differentiation and integration of single real variable algebraic and transcendental functions and their applications. Coursework is comparable to a 3-credit college level Calculus I course.  This course will help students develop their analytical and synthesizing skills.  This class’ complexity requires additional outside study beyond the normal classroom setting.  Calculus is weighted at 1.10.
     
    Grading
     
    Your grade will be based on points accumulated through the marking period in two weighted categories.

    Weights:  
    60%      tests, quizzes, certain projects and assignments may fall in this category
    40%      notebook and reading checks, homework, classwork, projects
        
    Homework – Assignments meant to introduce topics, reinforce concepts and practice skills.   
    In class assignments – Practice or discovery activities that may be given individually or in small groups.
    Notebook and reading check – Based on the quality and organization of your notes.  
          Possible checks during tests, by exit slips and other methods.   
          Ask yourself, “Could someone else make sense of and learn from my notebook?”   
    Quiz – Similar to tests and designed to assess smaller blocks of information.  
          Quizzes can be given as solo or occasionally small group efforts.
