Discrete Mathematics

Welcome to Discrete Mathematics!! It is important that you are in a classroom that provides a positive learning environment so that you will be able to achieve success. As in all classrooms, the general school rules and guidelines described in the student handbook are followed. It is my expectation that each student will…

  • Arrive to class on time with the proper tools
  • Be respectful of people and property
  • Take responsibility for your own actions (or inaction)
  • Participate fully in classroom activities
  • Pursue educational excellence as the key to your future

 

Required tools: Textbook, paper, pencils, graphing calculator, scientific calculator

Grading:        Assessments:                   70%

                        Daily assignments:         20%

                        Projects/Activity:            10%

The class grade will be a weighted mix of the three components listed above. The assessment category will include all quizzes and chapter tests. The homework category will include all of the daily individual assignments. The activity category includes group activities, a semester project, and class participation points.

 

The Mathematics department at CHS is committed to the goal of helping students achieve mastery in their subject by reducing test anxiety. To further that goal, we have determined that students will be allowed to retake tests under the following conditions:

  • Student has taken original test on the date given
  • Student must provide evidence of review or remediation before the retake
  • Student is present at the retake date slotted by the teacher, within a reasonable time from the original (usually two weeks or less)
  • Students absent on original test date will only be allowed the retake/makeup slot
  • Students sitting for a retake will receive the RETAKE SCORE!!
  • Students will be given an opportunity to take two retakes per semester. 

 

The mathematics department at CHS is also committed to helping students develop study habits that promote lifelong learning. We feel that completing the daily assigned work is very important to the mastery of the subject matter and helps students develop a strong work ethic. Students will be expected to complete their assignments in a timely manner, as impromptu checks will be conducted to determine the assignment grade. (Special arrangements will be made for extended absences or extended illness.)

 

Please contact me through my school email kbroderick@osd.wednet.edu if you have any concerns/questions about classroom practices or your students’ progress. I look forward to a great year!!
