Neshaminy High School
Welcome to Statistics!
I am looking forward to an exciting and productive year! Today the world is filled with numbers and data, this course teaches students how to organize, analyze, and question the integrity of that data. Please use the contact information at the bottom of this page if you have any concerns or questions. I hope that the following information will give you an accurate overview of our class.
· Our goal is to learn and understand the concepts that span approximately 9 chapters in our textbook.
· The curriculum will emphasize problem solving, data collection, data analysis, probability, mathematical models, analytical thinking, and proficient use of a Texas Instrument graphing calculator.
· Students are required to maintain a 3-ring binder with loose leaf paper, a class notes section, a homework/practice problems section, and a resource section.
· Students are required to have a calculator. I recommend a graphing TI-84plus, or TI-84plus CE calculator.
· Student marking period grades will be determined by the total points earned divided by the total points possible. Grades will include homework, quizzes, tests, activities, and projects.
· Homework is assigned daily. HOMEWORK IS an ESSENTIAL part of the learning process and gives students an opportunity for independent practice and self-evaluation.
· Each student needs to take responsibility for making-up any work missed due to absence. Class ATTENDANCE IS a NECESSARY ingredient for learning success.
· All class grades are posted on Home Access Center and updated weekly. If your student does not have a reported grade (an empty box) the assignment or assessment was not completed.
· Our class uses CANVAS to interact, track assignment dates, access answer keys and resources. If you would like to be a member use your student’s log-in information.
· Mid-marking period warning notices are sent out for students with an average grade of less than 70% (D or F). Mid-marking period dates are the week of 10/3, 12/11, 2/27, & (5/1 seniors only) 5/8.
· After school help is available before and after school in the library Monday through Thursday,6:45 until 7:10 & 2:30 until 4:00, with a math teacher or on Mondays and Thursdays in room F-112, 2:15 until 3:00, with Mrs. Fellmeth.
We are almost halfway through the first marking period and before we know it June will be arriving. This year’s students are fantastic and I know that I will enjoy working with them for the remainder of the school year. Thank you for taking the time to show support for my passion, education!
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
