1. Course Description. This yearlong course provides continuation to the mathematics concepts and processes introduced in Integrated Mathematics I. The intend of this course is to provide additional algebraic concepts and processes to the student and demonstrate how they are utilized in the workplace. Topics include quadratics, linear systems, probability, statistics, and higher level measurements.
2. Grading. Grades will be collected from tests, quizzes, and daily work. Daily work will include study guides, lab activities, and problems. Grades will be determined by the following plan:
Daily Assignments: 25%
Late assignments will be accepted but will only receive 50% for what is correct upon the assignment. The handbook, pg.7 explains the grading scale. Your book number is your identification number for the posted grades. If you do not want people to know your grade do not tell them your number.
3. Retest Policy. If a student scores less than 80% upon a test, he/she has the option to retake the test. A retestís maximum score will be 80% and must be retaken before the next unitís test.
