COURSE DESCRIPTION: The fundamental purpose of this course is to: (1) formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations, including modeling an association In bivariate data with a linear equation and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations; (2) grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; (3) analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence, and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem.

GRADING:

Nine weeks grades will be computed using quizzes, examinations, and homework/classwork assignments. Examinations and quizzes will account for 70% of the nine weeks grade. Homework/classwork will account for 30%. The number of tests and quizzes will changed from nine weeks to nine weeks due to the amount and type of content covered. The Rio Rancho District scale will be followed when issuing nine weeks, semester, and final course grades. Semester grades will be computed using the nine weeks averages (weighted 40% each) and the semester exam (weighted 20%).

All students will be required to turn in notes and practice by the end of the module. If students are absent, they are expected to print handouts from the instructor’s website or pick up a copy in class so they don’t get behind. Students will be expected to go to the instructor to keep track of assignments and activities in class when absent.
