Course Description (Math Support)
This course is designed to provide students with a rigorous program of the study in Mathematics and to prepare them to take math courses at the college level.
Course Description (Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry)
Students at MCHS who enroll in Pre-AP Calculus with Trigonometry do so with one intent in mind - to prepare themselves for the Advanced Placement Calculus course or College Calculus course that they will take when they are seniors. Pre-AP Calculus is a fast-paced, extremely rigorous course in which students are expected to remember basic concepts for Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II in an effort to learn how to analyze information and make connections between these four courses.
Grades are based on the accumulation of points.
89 - 100% = A
79 - 88% = B
69 - 78% = C
55 - 68% = D
0 - 54% = F
Grades are calculated on cumulative percentage and are rounded up whenever possible.
Class participation (effort)
Completion of assignment (daily work)
Major projects, exams, and self-reflection.
Grades are posted online and updated every Thursday.
