# Welcome to Mr. Wong's Pre-Calculus 11 Class!

The final is in 2 parts: chapters 1 to 4 - June 10 and chapters 5 to 8 - June 14. 8 sheets of reference notes are permitted for each part.

Click for Course Outline 2015-16, Intro, and Schedule, revised Schedule. A note for my students and their parents/guardian, the workbooks cost $26 this year. Workbooks will no longer be lent out because they have been damaged too much in the past. If you do not wish to purchase the workbook, you can get an electronic copy.

To parents who did not get the parent info form from your child, you can print out a copy and send it to me.

If you wish to borrow a calculator (at no charge), please download:

## Bonus

Bonus marks for writing good solutions on Socratic.org. 5 good answers will be a 10% bonus towards a test, so 2% per question. Email me the link. Try to answer questions that are related to the chapter that you are doing. Put "#" around expressions so they get formatted as math expressions.

If you want homework help, you can ask the question on Socratic and email me the link to solve (no bonus marks for asking questions).

Alternative bonus marks (subject to change at my discretion with notice): You can create up to 2 videos related to questions solved incorrectly for an exam. Choose a similar question from the homework and modify the numbers to create a new question. Show me the question, then write up the solution. Show me the solution, then proceed with creating the video. Failure to follow these procedures can result in a loss of marks.

- You will get up to 5% for each video applied to the exam from where the question was chosen.
- The exam grade will be capped at 95% when applying the bonus marks.
- You may work in pairs, but each person must contribute to speaking on the video.
- Marks will be deducted if there is no spoken description.
- Marks will be deducted if the errors (spoken or written) are not edited from the video.
- Videos should be approximated 2-3 minutes.
- Marks will be deducted if the question is not sufficiently difficult.
- Videos must be submitted 3 weeks before the end of the term or marks will be deducted.
- Report card marks are cumulative, so you may go back to any test from the year.
- Marks will be deducted for not following the Creating Videos.

**Policy Clarifications:**

- Rules can be exempted by me on a case by case basis. I am not obligated to give reasons as some issues may be private matters concerning the individual student.
- These videos are meant to be public so that students can view them through the links on my website. Do not make the videos private.
- Bonus marks cannot be added to any re-written tests. They can only be added to the original test score.
- Reference sheets (2 pages) can be used if assigned work is complete and checked the day before the test.
- For test re-writes, you must complete all assigned work from the chapter and correct all answers on the test.

**New Policies (effective March 12):**

- Students must be following the school code of conducts to get bonus marks.
- Excessive lateness or unexcused absences will disqualify a student from bonus marks for their current chapter.
- Students caught cheating will disqualify them from bonus marks for the remainder of the year.
- Students not working on their assigned work during class will be disqualified from bonus marks for their current chapter.
- Bonus work (videos and Socratic) must be submitted a week before the end of the term or marks will be deducted.
- Socratic answers have been bumped to 2% per question.
