HYPERLINK "http://www.phschool.com/webcodes10/index.cfm?fuseaction=home.gotoWebCode&wcprefix=bak&wcsuffix=0099"Prentice Hall Mathematics: California Algebra 1 by Bellman, et al., Pearson, 2009.Secondary Mathematics One: An Integrated
Approach by Hendrickson, Honey, et al.,
Mathematics Vision Project (MVP), 2016.Course Description
Math 1 is the first course of a three-year sequence of integrated math courses that incorporate the new state standards and Practice Standards in Mathematics.The purpose of Math I is to develop students ability to think mathematically and develop their conceptual understanding of mathematics and procedural fluency in mathematics. Math I will extend the mathematics students learned in earlier grades and begin the development of concepts in Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Modeling, Geometry, and Probability and Statistics. The critical topics of this course are:
Sequences
Linear and Exponential Functions
Features of Functions
Equations and InequalitiesSystems of Equations and Inequalities
Transformations and Symmetry
Congruence, Constructions, and Proof
Connecting Algebra and Geometry
Modeling Data
Extensive use of models (or real-world situations), manipulatives, graphs and diagrams will help students view how mathematics is a set of related topics as opposed to a set of discrete topics. In addition, students will solve problems graphically, numerically, algebraically, and to make verbal connections between these representations. Students routinely use the standards for mathematical practice to make sense of problems, justify solutions and conclusions, model with mathematics, and strategically use technology to analyze and solve real-world problems.
Grading
Students earn their own grades. Each assignment is worth a certain amount of points and given a percentage grade. Grades will be updated in Aeries most Mondays. The percentage breakdown is as follows:
Tests.60%
Quizzes.15%
Assignments.....20%
Computer work..5% ( done at school and at home)
Highly Recommended Supplies
Graph Paper for Assignments
Lined or graphed composition book or Spiral notebookfor notes and tasks (will not be tearing out pages)
Pencils, Pens,
Ruler,
Highlighters,
ScientificCalculator
Class Format
Class will usually begin with a warm-up. Students will be working in groups on assignments, but tests will be by individuals. All notes and taskswill be done in the Graphing Composition book or Spiral Notebookand will not be torn out. This will then be a portfolio of their Math 1 work. Ready, Set , Go assignments will be turned in separately.Students are expected to complete the assignments on time. If a student is absent, they will have to check Haiku for the assignment or contact me to get the assignment via email. If a student is absent for a test, please try to come in before or after school to make up the test. Taking make up tests during class means the student misses the new lesson and most likely will fall behind. The student can also come in during lunch by appointment to do test make- ups.
Remind
Remind is available for students and parents to get text messages from the teachers to remind them of upcoming tests or important announcements. The class will have a unique number and code and can be received via text or email. Instructions will be given in class.

Note from Mr. Nguyen
Dear student,
This journey you are about to undertake will be a challenge. The challenge is to fully commit to the learning process. I have been a teacher for 20 years now. My standard is that you learn and truly retain the information taught. Not for one day but for a lifetime. My job is to present the material in an organized passionate manner so you understand what is being taught. I assure you I will do my part. Your job is to put in effort like never before. I have seen numerous students learn and forget. You need to ask yourself who is responsible for this occurrence. I will state emphatically that it is solely up to you. If you do forget, ask yourself these questions. Did I review every sample problem from Mr. Nguyens notes? Did I read the conceptual questions I created? Did I review nightly the previous and current material? I will demand that you do all the above learning techniques before I guide you further. The reason I ask these questions is very clear. MATH 1 is a college prep course. If you are planning on attending college, you will need to take FULL responsibility and commitment for your learning. The real world will expect you to show complete mastery of the material. I pray you know I must demand you commit to this level because I want you to succeed at the next level. I have seen too many students take short cuts and fail. I pray you know I am doing my all to make sure this does not occur! So, in conclusion, lets enjoy learning. Do it with passion, energy and complete dedication!!
Sincerely,
Mr.Nguyen
Homework Policy II: To earn full credit (5pts) for each section, these two things must be achieved
A) The problems must be done to completion. This means the original problem must be written. All relevant work must be shown. It is not enough to simply have the question then answer from the back of the book. (2.5pts) The answers and subsequent work must be correct.
B) For each section of notes, students are required to create 5 study questions. Then students are required to write a 5 sentence summary of the section. You may look at the summary as the answers to the study questions created. (2.5pts).
Note: Extra credit is earned when a student creates 10 study questions and answers them all!

Return this portion of the sheet to me by Friday, August 25th. I/We have read the above standards and expectations and accept the responsibility for meeting these expectations. I also acknowledge the essential date of September 11thth as Back to School Night from 6-8pm. I highly recommend parents/guardians attend.
