Advanced Math provides students with the mathematical background needed in a calculus course. Student will learn how to solve problems numerically, graphically and analytically. Furthermore, they will learn how to incorporated technology to help them explore, investigate and analyze problems independently. The course will begin with a review of different types of functions and their roots. Students will learn how to use each function to model real world situations. They will then be introduced to topics in Trigonometry, Probability and Statistics and Linear Algebra.

Topics Covered in Course
Students need to bring the following materials to class everyday.
1. One spiral notebook (about 200 pages)
2. Papers, eraser, and pencils
3. TI-83 Plus graphing calculator
Homework is assigned daily and checked the next day. All assignments and notes should be organized in one spiral notebook. Students are responsible to make the necessary correction in class. Quizzes will be given weekly to encourage students to complete and correct their homework. Students can turn in any late assignments for half credit.
Notes: Students are expected to take Cornell notes during the lesson. Students are recommended to use a spiral notebook or a binder to organize their notes. Notes are collected and graded at the end of every unit.
Do Now: “Do Now” are warm-up questions given at the very beginning of class. They should take about 5 minutes to complete. Do Now cannot be made up for those who are absent or tardy.
Attendance and Tardy Policy
When a student is absent, it is his/her responsibility to make up all the missing assignments. Detention will be assigned for habitual tardiness. Students who are tardy for three or more times will be given a “U” as a citizenship grade.Make-Up Quizzes
Students are allowed to make up any quizzes that they haven't passed after school from 3:00 - 4:00 pm in room A211.
