Course Description: The focus of Analytic Geometry on the coordinate plane is organized into 6 critical
areas. Transformations on the coordinate plane provide opportunities for the formal study of congruence and
similarity. The study of similarity leads to an understanding of right triangle trigonometry and connects to
quadratics through Pythagorean relationships. The study of circles uses similarity and congruence to develop
basic theorems relating circles and lines. The need for extending the set of rational numbers arises and real
and complex numbers are introduced so that all quadratic equations can be solved. Quadratic expressions,
equations, and functions are developed; their characteristics and behavior are compared to those of linear and
exponential relationships from Coordinate Algebra. Circles return with their quadratic algebraic
representations on the coordinate plane. The link between probability and data is explored through conditional
probability. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and, together with the content
standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes
use of their ability to make sense of problem situations
Course Prerequisites: Successful completion of CCGPS Coordinate Algebra.

Grading Scale
Class work/Homework
The teacher reserves the right to alter this syllabus at any time in order to maximize student achievement and
success. Students will be notified if the syllabus is revised, and an updated copy will be on the teacher’s website
Required Materials:
Students will benefit immensely from being organized and prepared. They are expected to bring supplies to
class daily.
 Notebook (3-ring binder with dividers):
o Bell Ringers/Essential Questions,
o Notes
o Classwork/Homework
o Tests/Quizzes
o Support classwork/homework
 #2 pencils and erasers (NEVER write in red in my class!)
 Notebook paper (loose-leaf paper)
 Scientific calculator (TI 30XS). Cell phones ARE NOT calculators and cannot be used in class.
 Graph paper
 Colored pencils
 Expo markers or Whiteboard markers (the skinny ones)
 Protractor, ruler
 Compass
 Hand sanitizer
 1 box Kleenex Tissues
Academic Dishonesty:
Academic dishonesty is a serious offense that will not be tolerated. If a student is found cheating on any written
work, a GRADE OF ZERO will be given on the work, the parents will be contacted, and the incident will be
reported to an administrator.
Classroom Expectations:
 Follow all school and district rules, including the inappropriate use of electronics and food/drink in
 Be on time, be prepared, and be on task. Tardiness will result in a detention. Being unprepared or off
task will result in detention.
 Be seated before the tardy bell with all required materials. Begin bell ringer without prompting from
 Treat others with respect at all times.
 Take care of personal business and social conversations outside of class.
 There will be no talking at all during a test or quiz. Any offense will result in a grade of zero.
 Actively participate in class lessons and discussions.
 Excessive disruptive behavior will result in detentions, parental contact, or referrals to the administration
 You will be allowed 5 passes for the year (from August until May). Use them wisely.
Resources/Strategies for Student Learning:
The best way to be successful is to be present each day and to always give your best effort. You should
let your teacher know immediately if you are giving your best effort and are still struggling in this course.
We will work together to find strategies that will help you be more successful. Below are some helpful
resources available for students to use to help them be successful.
 Students have homework each evening. It is critical that students strengthen newly acquired math skills
 All homework assignments are due at the beginning of class when the tardy bell rings. Late homework
will not be accepted except in the case of excused absences.
Homework is graded based on effort and accuracy. There is no excuse for not trying. Students must
attempt each problem and show all work. Students are encouraged to form study groups and/or ask
Late Work Policy:
In the event that an assignment is not submitted by the due date, students may turn in late work for 50% within
the same unit.
Make-up Policy:
It is imperative that students attend class daily. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain and complete all
make-up work. The teacher will not ask for it. Students have one week from the date of their return to class to
complete all make-up work, this includes tests.
Grade Recovery Policy:
If a student earns a grade of 70 or below on a test (excluding the final and EOCT), he/she is expected to take a
recovery test before the grading period ends. Students must schedule a time with the teacher in advance to
retake a test. Students must attend a tutorial session before re-doing a test.
Monitoring Progress:
Parents and students should monitor attendance and grades regularly via progress reports and the parent
assistant tool.
 Go to to create a parent portal account.
Call or email teacher for additional updates or to schedule a conference.
