Course Description:
Advanced Algebra is the culminating course in a sequence of three high school courses designed to ensure career and
college readiness. It is designed to prepare students for fourth course options relevant to their career pursuits. The
standards in the three-course high school sequence specify the mathematics that all students should study in order to be
college and career ready. Additional mathematics content is provided in fourth credit courses and advanced courses
including pre-calculus, calculus, advanced statistics, discrete mathematics, and mathematics of finance courses. High
school course content standards are listed by conceptual categories including Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions,
Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. Conceptual categories portray a coherent view of high school mathematics
content; a students work with functions, for example, crosses a number of traditional course boundaries, potentially up
through and including calculus. Standards for Mathematical Practice provide the foundation for instruction and
assessment.
Standards Based Instruction: This course will include information in compliance with the Common Core Georgia
Performance Standards. For complete coverage of this courses standards please see https://www.georgiastandards.org/
WIDA Standards: Students who are determined to require English language assistance will receive accommodations
from the classroom and ESOL teachers according to the WIDA performance standards in compliance with the WorldClass Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA) Consortium. See http://www.wida.us/.
Grading Scale*:
Area Assignments Percentage
Area Assignments Percentage
Formal Assessments
65%
Informal Assessments
15%
Homework
10%
Midterm
10%
Total
100%
*The average derived from these percentages in the teachers grade book will then be averaged with the students score
on the End-Of-Course Test/ final, which will account for 20% of the students final average.
Remediation procedures:
Re-assessments will be done during the semester through the use of the midterm and final exam. The highest replacement
grade will be a 70. Look at pages 15-20 of your student handbook for more details.
Infinite Campus: The fastest and most up-to-date way for parents to track a students progress is to utilize the Parent
Portal piece of the Infinite Campus student information system. To obtain access to Parent Portal parents may pick up a
Parent Portal Registration Form from the CCHS Guidance department or from the school of the youngest child registered
in Colquitt County. Parents who utilized Parent Portal during the 2015-2016 school year do not need to register again.

Important Resources for Parents: Colquitt County High School depends upon parent participation to fuel our School
Improvement Plan. Please utilize the links at http://colquitt.high.schooldesk.net/ to learn about the school improvement
process and parent involvement. Please contact Mrs. Stephanie Terrell, Principal Colquitt County High School with any
comments, questions or suggestions. Also, please refer to the CCHS 2016-2017 student handbook for important rules and
procedures at CCHS.
Students with Disabilities are entitled to appropriate and reasonable auxiliary aids and accommodations through The
Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Colquitt County High School is
committed to providing reasonable accommodations for all persons with disabilities; it is the responsibility of students,
parents, teachers, and administrators to communicate regularly to fulfill requirements linked to the students learning
goals.
Supplies:
pencils
notebook paper
some type of 3-ring binder
Advanced Algebra classes will use a TI -84 graphing calculator in class and that while, not required, some students may
want to have a personal calculator to use at home as well as to use once they enter college. The library will also have
calculators that students can check out.
Course Repair
All excuses, make-up work, and other grade related material must be made up before the end of each 4 week grading
period.
Academic Referral
Students who do not complete assignments may be assigned an academic referral that will be handled by a school
administrator. The purpose of the referral is to help students end behaviors that will jeopardize their learning and success in
the course
Important Issues:
~ Homework will be given on most days and students are expected to complete all homework assignments. Homework is
an essential step in the learning process. Practicing the skills taught in class will promote a better understanding of
mathematical concepts thus aiding in success on assessments and in the course.
~ Writing is very important in all subject areas and we will be doing different writing assignments in our class.
~ Students are responsible for getting class notes from another student when they are absent. It is the students
responsibility to complete and turn in make-up work. When a student misses class, it is wise for him or her to come in for
extra help after school so that we can go over the concepts that the student missed. Students must makeup missed quizzes
and tests before or after school or during an extended period.
~ Students are encouraged to come in for extra help. Often, a few minutes of individual help can result in a student
understanding material that he or she had found difficult. Students may come in before or after school for help, please
check with me first so I can check for conflicts. My availability is listed on the front page. In the case of school meetings
or personal appointments and emergencies, I will notify students that I will be unavailable. It is helpful for students to
inform me at least a day in advance if they plan to stay after school for extra help or to make up work.
~ Late work is penalized 5 points per day with a maximum of 25 pts.
Expectations and Classroom Rules:
Students should behave in an appropriate manner for all students to achieve maximum learning. Any referral may
disqualify a student from final exemptions. Students should bring appropriate materials to class each day and be prepared
to work when the tardy bell rings. Tardies and absences may disqualify a student from final exemptions. Students should
keep their work organized in a 3-ring notebook. Successful organization leads to better preparation for frequent quizzes
and major tests which are used to determine a students mastery of concepts. Remember, students will follow ALL school
rules. Cell phones will not be tolerated.
Discipline: If a student chooses to break a rule, the following consequences may occur:
First Offense: Verbal warning
Second Offense: After school detention
Third Offense: Call parent
Fourth Offense: Sent to office
