PreCalculus R is taught primarily using the TI-89 and TI-84 graphing calculators. There is a class set of TI-84 calculators available for use during class and a set of 10 TI-89's. However, purchase of your own calculator is strongly suggested. Homework is assigned every day and will be checked the next class. If you miss a quiz/test due to an absence, you must make it up after school within 1 week of the assignment. The grade will be entered as a zero. If one week passes, the zero remains a part of your grade. Please notify me beforehand, if possible, to get your missed work or to make up an assignment.
**If you miss class for band, chorus, field trip, etc… it is your responsibility to get the day’s notes and complete the HW assigned for that night.
