Course: Integrated Mathematics 2 2019-2020 School year
Teacher: Dr. Bei Collins Room 11
Course Description: Integrated Math 2 is the second course of a three-course sequence including Integrated Math 1, Integrated Math 2, and Integrated Math 3. This course satisfies the California Common Core Standards for Integrated Math 2. For the Integrated Math 2 course, students continue to develop algebra and geometry skills through engaging and real-life applications. Students will build off of the standards they mastered in Integrated Math 1 building on geometry and algebra skills. Students will demonstrate abilities to reason logically and to understand and apply mathematical processes and concepts using algebraic operations, geometry topics with spatial sense, data analysis, and probability.
Maintain a level of total Involvement in working with others.
These items are required in class each day:
- Two pencils sharpened before the start of class
- College ruled composition book
- Pen (black or dark blue)
- Lined paper
- Straightedge (compass and ruler)
Homework will be assigned daily, and it needs to be completed overnight. You should contact your classmates to collaborate results and modify any errors you find.
The assessment includes quizzes, chapter tests, and the district finals. Students will allow an extra chance to retake a quiz or chapter test by appointment after making necessary corrections.
Food and drink cause chaos in the classroom and therefore are prohibited. (Gum is prohibited on campus by school policy.) Please do not bring gum, food, or drink (other than water) into the classroom.
Turn off your phone and put your earbuds away before you enter the classroom. Using a cell phone is forbidden during class unless for instructional purpose with permission.
