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. I will use this website as well as Microsoft Teams and Moodle to help you be successful in class both in person and virtually. Communication is going to be key this year so, please contact me through email or Teams chat with any questions you have. 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, integration techniques and applications, parametric equations, polar coordinates, and infinite sequences and series.

**Suggested Supplies:**

- Chromebook or similar
- Notebook or lined paper
- Three-ring binder or folder
- Pencils, correcting pens, erasers
- Calculator (TI-84C is recommended but I also have some that you may use in class)
- Textbook: Calculus Extended (workbook and can be purchased for $20 if you want to be able to write in it)

__Grading:__

There are three categories that will make up your quarter grades.

Classwork and Homework: 10%

Quizzes: 30%

Quizzes will be given throughout each unit.

Tests: 60%

Tests will be given at the end of each unit.

Students may retake any summative assessments (chapter tests) 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.

Please be here and be on time when in person. The more time you spend in class the more I can teach you!

If you are learning virtually, please be sure to check in every day and complete the work. There will be something to work on every day.
