In addition to the subjects mentioned, students will apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to
add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers, use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions, analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and
mathematical problems (several units from the 7^{th } or 8^{th} grade curriculum standards have been integrated throughout the course ).
(Topics
include: Number Sense, patterns, decimals, data and statistics, number patterns
and fractions, integers, equations, inequalities, functions, ratios, percents,
geometry, measurement and area, surface area and volume, and probability.)
Classroom
Procedures/Expectations:
At the beginning of each class, students will complete a warm-up activity which will consist of review problems, vocabulary, or a homework topic. Essential question(s) are provided to engage students and focus daily lessons. All of this information MUST be kept in the student’s binder.
Students are expected to keep a binder with all completed assignments and math notes (class work, examples, definitions, etc.).
Students are taught through online, hands-on applications, whole-group instruction, and/or individualized instruction. Students have the opportunity to complete many math performance tasks throughout the year. A grading rubric will be used to ensure that students are aware of the teacher’s expectations and grading criteria.
Materials:
McDougal
Littell Mathematics Course 1, 2 or 3 textbook
FTSOnline
Homeschool Agenda
www.classzone.com website (provides instructional videos, games and activities for practice.)
Folder
Spiral
notebook or composition book
Pencils
Graph paper
Protractor
Calculator
Students are required to purchase and bring all materials to each class. Leaving the online class session to search for forgotten items is not tolerable and should be avoided.
Schedule:
Full time class sessions are for one-hour, 4 days per week and are usually, Monday thru Thursday. Part-time participants are scheduled for forty-five minutes to one-hour, daily on Monday thru Thursday. See your instructor for verification of program options, schedules and book fees, inshaAllah
Classroom Expectations:
Always respect
yourself, others, and your environment.
Use
appropriate language and volume at the right time.
Listen
to and follow all instructions. Never be afraid to ask questions.
Excellence is expected: come prepared to learn.
Stay
focused, refrain from surfing the internet and request permission to leave the room.
(See other program rules under policies and procedures on the website.)
Consequences:
1st
Warning: The
first warning consist of a verbal reminder to student
2nd
Warning: The
second warning consist of a verbal warning and an email, a call or written
correspondence explaining the infraction in detail to parent and student
3rd
Warning: The
third and last warning is a courtesy only. At this time the student will be given (1) detention, booted, suspended or banned from the online conference room or classroom until
further action can be taken
Boot
Affect Until Next Class: Once
the student has been booted, suspended or banned from the room, the parent is
expected to contact administration prior to the next class date, to resolve the
issue.
Voice
Conference (PTC) Parent/Instructor/Child: The PTC meeting inshaAllah will be
beneficial to parent/student and the instructor. This will allow us to work
through a goals plan for the student and focus on the child’s strengths instead
of the behavior issues that may be present. A PTC can be scheduled anytime
during the behavioral process.
Removal from Program: This option is a last resort for unresolved issues. The parent will be given ample time to reply. If the parent is not in agreement with the decision they can within 7 days contact administration to discuss the matter in detail inshaAllah. The student will remain in academic suspension until the matter is resolved.
Grades will be determined by the following: Grading scale:
Homework/Independent Practice 10% A 90
- 100
Classwork/Participation 50% B 80
- 89
Quizzes 10% C 70
– 79
Tests/Exams 20% F 0 – 69
Projects 10%
Any participant with a grade between 0 - 69 at the end of the course will be required to repeat the course or attend summer school to possibly raise the grade to C level (70 - 79). For additional information request by email or schedule an appointment with administration.
Homework is given daily and is due before the next scheduled online class. Generally, homework consists of problems from the book or worksheets completed during that class day. Homework should be neat and in pencil for the notebook and then typed in a manner that shows your thought process when submitting for review. WORK MUST BE SHOWN FOR CREDIT. STUDENTS WILL NOT BE GIVEN FULL CREDIT FOR A PAGE FULL OF ANSWERS. If students are absent, they will be given two days to complete their missed assignments. This is the responsibility of the student, there will be no reminders!
All assignments can be submitted using Microsoft OneNote, or from HWA Submit on the website.
Students in advanced math: No late work will be accepted in accelerated math!
A graded report will be sent home every 3 ½ weeks. This report’s purpose is to inform you and your parents of the child’s progress and to prepare students before the 9^{th} week assessment.
The teacher reserves the right to change or modify any section of the course syllabus at any time during the semester to accommodate the needs, abilities, and interest of the students as well as the availability of resources.
For Submission Purposes Only

Off-site hours:
Fridays: 7:30 am – 9:30 am
Course Dates:
August - May (annually)
Course Description:
High School Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and/or Economics for 9^{th} –
12^{th} Grade participants are arranged within the following
collection of subjects: topics are not limited to the list and maybe updated
accordingly with prior notice given to participants through email services.
Equivalence
Rewriting expressions into equivalent forms is a
central part of doing mathematics. In these lessons students investigate the
concepts of variable, equivalent expressions and the distributive property. As
they evaluate expressions, they can also observe patterns such as rate of
change and order of operations in the results.
Lessons include:
Variables, exponents, powers, order of operations, equations, inequalities,
problem solving, tables and graphs, data and statistics, and functions.
Additionally, there are problems in real numbers, matrices, distributive
property, and probability.
Equations
Learning to solve equations begins with simple
equations in one variable and involves fundamental principles such as inverse
properties and the concept of balance. The lessons in this unit illustrate the
difference between expressions and equations, explore the additive inverse
property, use a balance beam to solve equations, and examine the special cases
in which the equation is an identity or for which the equation has no solution.
Lessons
include: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of equations,
multi-step equations, equations with variables, linear equations, decimal
equations, formulas and functions, rates ratios and percents. Additionally, there
are problems for graphing linear equations and functions (coordinates and
scatter plots, data and statistics, graphing, intercepts, slope, direct
variation)
Writing Linear Equations
Linear equations in two variables are often
treated as linear functions. The lessons in this unit develop the concept of
the slope of a line, relate slope to rate of change, and explore the
relationship among tables, graphs and symbolic representations of a line. The
activities include contextual applications of linear functions.
Lessons include: writing an equation for slope intercept form, slope and a point, two points, fitting a line to data and statistics, point slope form, standard form, predicting models, exponents, scientific notation, exponential functions, quadratic equations and functions, polynomials and factoring, rational equations and functions, radicals and connections to geometry.
Basics of Geometry

Last Will and Testament
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
Assalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh
Alhamdulillah, here is a basic form that you as Muslims can use as your Last Will and Testament to avoid any complications at the time of your death. This simple form will give the Muslims the right to take possession of your remains and to distribute your property according to Islamic Law (shariah) inshaAllah.
Please share amongst the Muslims
