Hello ALL!

 

This is a new class to Whittier Tech, and we will be drawing from several resources. Plan on bookmarking this page and the showbie page as Statistics is a resource and vocabulary heavy course. Plan on almost exclusively solving word problems and real world examples. This is not a “plug and chug” course. It will require deep inference and the use of all resources at your disposal. There will be a constant need to check back for tables, formulas, examples, and so on. I am looking forward to a great year. This course is also very vocabulary heavy, and will require daily memorization of new vocabulary and frequent pop quizzes to check for progress. This is not a course that you will be able to just “wing it”. This course will move at a very steady pace that requires new material daily. The class may also be broken into two on occasion so that two lessons are taught per day. Plan on spending time every day at home reviewing terms and practicing formulas.

 

Note: ANY STUDENT WHO HAS NOT HAD SUCCESS IN AN HONORS LEVEL MATHEMATICS COURSE (specifically honors Algebra II) IN THE PAST SHOULD PLAN ON STAYING WEEKLY FOR EXTRA HELP, AND PLAN ON SPENDING AN EXTENSIVE AMOUNT OF TIME IN REMEDIATION OF THE HONORS ALGEBRA II TOPICS AND SKILLS. MY EXTRA HELP DAY IS TUESDAY. ALSO, THE COURSE STARTS OFF VOCABULARY HEAVY AS OPPOSED TO CALCULATION HEAVY. ANY STRUGGLE IN THE FIRST QUARTER WILL ONLY BE MAGNIFIED MOVING FORWARD AS THE APPLICATION OF ABSTRACT FORMULAS AND THE CALCULUS BECOMES MORE PREVALENT.
