Pioneer Valley Regional School

Ms. Stefanini

Room 402

 

31 August 2016


Welcome to high school math!   I am sure that you will find that room 402 is a “cool” math classroom.  As we begin our new year together, I thought that I would provide you with some information that will help you be successful this year.

 

Communication

Communication is one of the keys to success.  Here are ways we can stay in touch.


(email) stefaninid@pvrsdk12.org   


(school phone) (413) 498-2931 X402 to leave a message –

                                                                        I will return your call as soon as I can.

Webpage

My course webpage, which can be found via the Pioneer web site, under “Departments> Math> Ms. Stefanini”, is a resource for you and your family to find out today’s homework, course table of contents, and course resources including the CPMP Tools software.  Check it out!


Extra Help

I am available for extra help on Mondays AND Thursdays, the late bus days, beginning Monday, September 19.  Please sign up with me in class on the day you will be staying.  Please remember that it is your responsibility to sign up for the late bus at lunch.


Daily Routine

Please remember to bring to class every day:

  • Your binder with 5 dividers labeled:

  • Homework

  • Warm-ups

  • Investigations

  • Toolkit

  • Assessments

  • Your pencil

  • Your agenda book

  • Your calculator (if you have one)


Making the Grade

Quarterly grades are based on the following:

  • Daily - 25% - daily investigations and homework

  • Warm-up Quizzes - 10% - occasional collection of warm-up problems for assessment

  • Quizzes - 20% - shorter “check-up’s” on smaller amounts of material (lessons)

  • Tests / Projects - 35% - longer, more comprehensive assessments (units)

  • Participation - 10% - based on individual and group participation and collaboration, as well as being prepared for class on a daily basis

Make-up Homework / Quizzes / Tests / Projects

If you are absent, it is your responsibility to see me for any missed instruction and assignments.  You will also work closely with your group to catch up.


Re-tests will be offered for most quizzes and tests and are required for students who receive a score less than 1.5 (C-).  Re-tests will only be scheduled during after-school hours.  If you are not happy with your score, come see me!


Expectations for Classroom Behavior

Students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that encourages learning and embraces the PVRS Mission Statement (please refer to the Student Handbook, available online at the school’s website:  http://pvrs.pvrsdk12.org.


  • Raise hand and be recognized before speaking.

  • Use only appropriate language.

  • Be respectful of classmates, staff, and faculty.

  • Follow all school rules.


My simple way to remember these rules is this:           RESPECT FOR

  • Self  

  • Others

  • Property


  • Learning


Consequences

Failure to follow classroom and/or school rules will result in the following consequences:


Verbal Warnings will be given when I think that it is appropriate.  Some infractions warrant other immediate consequences.

After School Detention will be assigned if a student is disruptive to the learning of others of themselves.  Parents/Guardians will be notified when a detention is issued.

Parent / Guardian Contact will occur if the student is unable to re-focus and participate appropriately.  Infractions of school rules result in referrals to the PVRS administrative team.




Here’s to a successful 2016-2017 school year!


Integrated Math 2

Course Outline



Functions, Equations, and Systems

…reviews and extends student ability to recognize, describe, and use functional relationships among quantitative variables, with special emphasis on relationships that involve two or more independent variables


Regression and Correlation

               …develops student understanding of the characteristics and interpretation of the least squares regression equation and of the use of correlation to measure the strength of the linear association between two variables

Portfolio Project “Bones”

               …Your bones tell a lot a lot about your body!  You will find out by gathering data, graphing, analyzing, calculating, and creating your own predictive formulas.  Then you will upload your entire project into your Richer Picture portfolio.


Coordinate Methods

               …develops student understanding of coordinate methods for representing and analyzing properties of geometric shapes, for describing geometric change, and for producing animations


Nonlinear Functions and Equations

               …introduces function notation, reviews and extends student ability to construct and reason with functions that model parabolic shapes and other quadratic relationships in science and economics, with special emphasis on formal symbolic reasoning methods, and introduces common logarithms and algebraic methods for solving exponential equations

Portfolio Project “Taxicab Geometry”

…In the Coordinate Methods unit we developed the distance formula and then used it to find the distance between any two points in the coordinate plane of what is called Euclidean geometry.  In this project, we will explore further what happens when you use taxi-distance to determine the distance between two points.


Trigonometric Methods (as time permits)

                ...develops student understanding of trigonometric functions and the ability to use trigonometric methods to solve triangulation and indirect measurement problems


Probability Distributions (as time permits)

               …further develops student ability to understand and visualize situations involving chance by using simulation and mathematical analysis to construct probability distributions
