Hello!
Welcome to Helena High School. I am excited to be your math teacher this year! I am teaching one section of Calculus BC, two sections of Calculus AB, and two sections of Honors Precalculus. This website will have important information, but most weekly communication will be through email. I will also post class materials to the Moodle page so check there for any videos or notes. Thank you.
I am looking forward to a great year. Go Bengals!
Mrs. Potuzak
Topics in this course will include: limits, continuity, differentiation techniques and applications, and integration techniques and applications.
Suggested Supplies:
Grading:
There are two categories that will make up your quarter grades.
Formative Assignments: 10%
This includes classwork, homework, bell ringers, exit tickets, etc.
Summative Assessments: 90%
This includes tests, quizzes, and projects.
Students may retake any summative assessments for full credit ONE TIME. Preparedness for the second, more rigorous, assessment will be at the teacher’s discretion and may include additional practice session(s) outside of class time. Re-takes must be taken outside of class and scheduled with the teacher and completed before the end of the semester. Re-take scores will replace the original test score.
Grading Scale: 90-100 = A, 80-89 = B, 70-79 = C, 60-69 = D, Below 60% = F
Semester grades will be made up of 40% from each quarter and 20% from a semester final.
Topics in this course will include: limits, continuity, differentiation techniques and applications, integration techniques and applications, parametric equations, polar coordinates, and infinite sequences and series.
