Advanced Functions & Modeling Syllabus

Welcome to a new semester and a new year at Charles B. Aycock! We are very excited to be apart of your adventure through the magnificent world of mathematics.

This semester, you will have the privilege of two teachers. Your primary teacher will be Mrs. Edmundson and your second teacher will be Mr. Browning, a student intern from East Carolina University. Here are a few things you and your child will need to know to be successful in our class.

Advanced Functions & Modeling Course Room: 520      Level: S          Credit: 1

Prerequisites: Math 3

Advanced Functions & Modeling provides students an in-depth study of modeling and applying functions. Work, home, recreation, consumer issues, public policy, and scientific investigations are some of the areas from which applications may originate. Based on the 2003 NC Standard Course of Study, emphasis is placed on solving problems by analyzing data, applying probability concepts, and using functions (logarithmic, piece-wise defined, power, trigonometric, and recursively defined). Appropriate technology, from manipulatives to graphing calculators, will be used to explore various objectives. This course will satisfy the fourth year math requirement for the public universities in the UNC system.

Materials needed for class:

  • 2 inch binder to keep all notes and papers organized
  • Pencils – ONLY PENCILS WILL BE USED IN MY CLASS
  • Loose-leaf paper
  • or TI84 Graphing Calculator (these calculators are supplied for the students to use at school; however, it will benefit the student to have one at home.)
  • 4 AAA Batteries

Wish List: 1 box of Kleenex, Hand sanitizer, 1 ream of paper

Classroom Rules:

  • Bring all necessary materials to class everyday
  • Be in your seat ready to work when the tardy bell rings
  • Homework is to be turned in at the very beginning of class.
  • It is the student’s responsibility to see teacher about missed assignments.
  • Be recognized before speaking and leave your seat only with permission.
  • Show respect and be polite to everyone
  • Respect other’s property

Tests                                       50%     B= 80-90                     1st 9 weeks avg = 40%  

Quizzes                                   30%     C= 70-80                     2nd 9 weeks avg = 40%

Homework/Classwork                20%     D= 60-70                     Final Exam =        20%

Progress reports are given every three weeks. Extra credit is sometimes given if they are returned the next day with a parent’s signature.

Mrs. Edmundson will be available Wednesday afternoons from 3:00-3:45 for tutoring and extra help to those students who may need it. . We may be able to set other times for tutoring upon request.
