    Course Description:

    This course is designed to teach the student the advanced topics of IB Math: Application and Interpretation  through instruction, homework, in class work, International Assessment (IA), quizzes/tests and projects.  This course will meet all the requirements for IB Mathematics SL.


    Classroom Procedures:

    • Beginning Assignment: Students are expected to complete daily warm up assignments.
    • Homework is a Requirement! Homework quiz each week.  One homework assignment will be collected each week at random.  NO makeup will be given on this assignment unless you were absence.   Homework will be listed on my board as well as Microsoft Teams.
    • Classroom Assignments: A list of weekly assignments will be posted on the board in my room.  Assignments are due the day we go over it.   If you were here for the assignment and didn’t turn it in on time, you can turn it in for half credit the next day.   After that the assignment will be a “0”.
    • If you have been absence, it is your responsibility to turn in missed work.  Students will be given 1 day to make up work for everyday of excused absences.
    • Tests and Quizzes: Tests/Quizzes will be announced in advance.  Make up tests and quizzes must be made up before or after school.   Arrangements must be made as soon as possible after absence (1 day for every excused absence)
    • International Assessment (IA): All students will complete one international assessment for this course.   Due dates and instruction for this assignment will be on going and announced throughout the year.   This assignment will be worth one test grade.
