Course description

Course Description

Though Geometry is an ancient mathematical discipline, French scholars René Descartes and Pierre de Fermat forged a new synthesis of algebra and geometry in the 17th Century that changed mathematics forever.

Analytic Geometry strives to give geometric interpretations/context to algebraic operations and to give algebraic procedure/ algorithms to geometric problems. These scholars (and those who later built on their work) gave us the two-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system, modern algebraic and exponential notation, and a new view of functions and graphs. This reformulation of Geometry set the stage for the creation of Calculus.

Attendance

Attendance and participation in each module of this course is crucial. To succeed in this class, regular attendance is expected. Be sure to establish a work schedule, log in regularly, and meet deadlines and due dates. If you must miss class for an extended period of time, contact me in advance to make arrangements.

Keep in mind that the course management system tracks your activity within the course. This includes the number of times you log in. I will run reports to monitor your weekly online activity. Students who fail to log in or meet deadlines will be contacted by the instructor and parent/guardian contact will be made as well.

Grading

Kutztown Area High School Grading System

You will be assessed in a variety of ways: sample problems, pair problems, quizzes, participation in discussions, graded assignments, and projects. Rubrics are used to evaluate discussions and projects and are posted to Moodle for student review prior to the start of an activity.

The course schedule is posted on Moodle. Modules become available on established dates. Deadlines are established for submitting assignments. Scores are reduced by 50% when work is turned in late.

Academic Integrity

Having academic integrity means being honest and responsible in your studies. You are expected to honor this concept in your participation in this online class. This means that all academic work is done by the student and the student will properly cite the resources used in completing work. You are expected to contact the instructor if questions arise about how to cite sources for projects in this class.

Plagiarism is defined as the unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work. This may also include when a student copies and pastes directly from another source and passes it off as his or her own, or if a student fails to cite a source after loosely summarizing its content in his or her own words. If evidence of academic misconduct on assignments, projects, or quizzes/exams is established or if work submitted by a student is found to be profane or unduly disrespectful of others, the following consequences apply:

  • The student earns zero on the assignment, project or exam.

  • The student and his or her parent/guardian are contacted.

  • An administrator of the Kutztown Virtual Academy is notified of the misconduct.

Technology Considerations

To Be Successful in an Online Course, You Should…

  • be independent and self-motivated learners.

  • have access to a computer with a fast, reliable internet connection.

  • know how to perform basic computer functions (saving and attaching files, creating folders), utilize skills learned in Computer Applications class, and navigate the internet (using search engines, entering passwords).

  • be able to communicate effectively and clearly using email and discussion forums.

  • be disciplined in setting and maintaining a schedule to complete work and provide timely responses to other students and the instructor, even when there are distractions online (checking personal email, perusing social media) or at home (television, family, social activities).

  • be proactive in asking appropriate questions when assignments, concepts or homework are unclear.

Online Communication Guidelines and Internet Use

The following rules of behavior ("netiquette") will be followed:

  • Stay on topic.

  • Respect the views of others.

  • Use common sense when commenting or accessing online websites and sources.

  • Write in complete sentences. Texting language is not used. You are required to maintain a high standard of conduct in all correspondence. Inappropriate language will not be tolerated.

  • Adherence to Kutztown Area School District Acceptable Use Policy is expected.

  • If you are not sure about something, ask. What is acceptable in the virtual classroom mirrors what is acceptable in the traditional classroom.
