• Wagner High School Calculus BC Welcome Letter/Syllabus 2019-2020

     

    Welcome to Calculus BC.  This course is designed to teach the first two semesters of college calculus.   At the completion of this course you will take the AP Calculus BC exam.  A score of 3 or above on this exam normally awards 6/8 semester hours of calculus credit at a college or university. In addition, passing students will receive a $100 honorarium from the National Mathematics and Science Initiative.

    Please (parents and students) feel free to contact me any time you have a question or concern. 

     

    Assignments and other important class information will be posted to Google Classroom.

     

    This course is taught using blended instruction based on Khan Academy.  Normally there will be short lectures interspaced with in-class work either on Khan Academy or on written assignments keyed to the AP exam.   

     

    Grading:  Khan Academy: The way to ensure a 100% is to achieve mastery of all the KA subjects.  Written assignments will be graded using AP exam criteria:  3-80% 4-90% 5-100%.

    IMPORTANT:  Join Google Classroom and you will be added to the Khan Academy Class.

     

    Weighting:  Classwork (50%), Tests (40%) and Homework(10%)

     

    All assignments can be redone any time. 

     

    Homework:  In addition to any assignments, please feel free to work ahead in Khan Academy.

     

    NMSI training will be held in Nov,  Jan and  Mar on Saturday mornings.  Students are expected to attend and will be held responsible for the material. 

     

    The textbook (Calculus Graphical, Numerical, Algebraic )  is a good source of information. 

     

    You will be issued logon information for two websites: 1)  Google Classroom:   43txhd

    2)  Khan Academy:  JFUGBHMW

     

     

    Normally, any student can retake tests and quizzes (except for the semester exam).  Retakes are normally done on Saturday mornings in room S-142.  Please come and see me if you need other arrangements.  I normally accept late work up until the end of the grading period.  However late work must be accomplished during tutoring or after consultation with me.   

     

    Tutoring will be available before school from 7:45AM to 8:15AM and after school from 4:20PM to 5:15 PM each day. I am normally in the classroom for Saturday tutoring from 9 AM-12 PM on Saturdays as well.
