COURSE OVERVIEW:
The purpose and mantra of this class is to exceed the standard, rather than meet the standard for the Algebra 1 course work. This program is designed to meet the needs of students who are entering the mathematical field of study, eventually leading to higher capacities within our content area and educational design. As the world changes ever so rapid into the mathematical realm, it is imperative that students in our content area be given additional assessments relating to experiences and academic challenges. To accomplish the higher standards of education that the math curriculum commands, students will participate in collaborative processes enhancing a more practical approach realistic in real world applications. Students will engage throughout the year with PARRC’s achievement testing in accordance with State Common Core Curriculum for graduation requirements. The State of New Mexico has adopted these new standards and tests, which are designed to help our students gain the skills and abilities they need to adapt to the rapidlychanging realities of life in the 21^{st} century. Commitment and support to this transition will make it a successful one for our students.
COURSE DESCRIPTION: In Common Core Mathematics, Algebra 1, students encounter a more ambitious version using Modules. These modules 14 deepen and extend students understanding of linear and exponential relationships by contrasting them with each other and by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend. Students also engage in methods fo4 analyzing, solving and using quadratic functions. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course module and, together with the content standards prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations. This course is designed to teach students how to solve problems that involve variables and work with rational numbers. Students learn the basic structure of the real number system and recognize techniques for solving equations and inequalities, graphing, operations with polynomial expressions/equations, techniques of factoring, systems of equations and quadratic equations. The course also includes reinforcement of computational skills with extensions to problemsolving techniques. Evaluation of knowledge will include presentations, projects, lesson(s)/exitshomework, and mid end of module assessments. Depth of Knowledge (DOK) will cover all 4 levels: recall, skill/concept, strategic thinking and extended thinking to describe, explain, and interpret.
COURSE MATHEMATICAL POWER STANDARDS: (CMPS)
The standards addressed in this course are taken from the CCSS list of Mathematics Content Standards. For more information about which standards are addressed, see below, or visit commoncore.org or corestandards.org.
 Upon completion of this course students will demonstrate proficiency in:
 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
 4. Model with mathematics.
 5. Use appropriate tools strategically.
 6. Attend to precision.
 7. Look for and make use of structure.
 8. Look and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

CRITERIA FOR EVALUATION: Each quarter grade is based on a total point system. Percentages will be given for weeklyparticipationcitizenship, class work, homework, quizzes, tests.
Modules: 14
Assessments will total 70% of a student’s grade (tests@50%,quizzes@20%)
Practices will total 30% of student’s grade (weekly @ 5%participation@ 15%classwork @10% homework)
There is No extra credit issued.
Each semester will be graded as followed:
 Semester grade = 40% (1^{st} 9 wks. grade) + 40% (2^{nd} 9 wks. grade) + 20% (Final exam grade)
 SEMESTER GRADING SCALE:
 A = 90100 % B = 8089 % C = 7079 % D = 6069 % F = Performance below 60
Class Policy  Procedures: Students are to complete all assignments, requirements and meet deadlines set by the instructor. No late work accepted past deadlines. Excused absence: verified, work accepted, student and/or parent responsibility to contact, obtain, complete, turn in work within same number of days excused. Unexcused absences: No late work accepted. Tardies, If you are late to class, you will be marked as tardy. Your Assistant Principal will assign you 1 day of ASD for each tardy 59, and tardies beyond that will receive 13 days of ISS. Excessive tardies affect your learning and will have school wide consequences. See your student handbook for more information. Pick up after yourself before you leave the classroom. Take all of your belongings and pick up any scrap papers or trash around you. Students must ask the teacher to be excused to use the restroom. With approval student fills out the pass with instructors signature and signs out on signout sheet. Students may ask after the first 10 minutes of class and before the last 10 minutes of class. Restroom breaks are not allowed during instructional/lecture.
