My hope for our students is to earn a “4” or “5” on all AP level Tests. This will be challenging, but we can do it!

1st Semester = unit tests & quizzes graded on straight scale.

2nd Semester = AP level scoring above

1) Tests = 100 points

2) Quizzes = 20 points

3) Free-Response Questions (FRQs) = 9 points

4) Home or class assignments = 5 points

5) Final 33% of 2nd semester grade (in May) a few days before the actual AP test = Auto “A”- “4” or “5” for 2nd semester.

6) The student will earn an “A” both semesters, when scores are “4” or “5” on the actual AP test. Scores are posted in mid-July.

Make-ups will be given for excused absences. There will be no test retakes.

The lowest FRQ score will be dropped at the end of the semester.

Course Recommendations

A. Students will maintain a math notebook.

B. Students will bring to class a graphing calculator to demonstrate proficiency in:

C. Other Supplies – graph paper, notecards, colored markers/pencils.

D. It is recommended that students attend at least 3 study sessions in the week prior to taking the AP exam.

Students are highly recommended to take the Advanced Placement Exam given in May by the College Board. I expect great results this year!

*Electronic recording of any kind may not take place during class without the expressed written consent of the teacher.

I promise to put forth effort over the entire year and to make improvements every day. I agree to the above course recommendations and understand what is expected.
