• Within College Courses - The college lecture environment is very different than the high school classroom.  Students should respect their professor, put away all technology, remain quiet while the professor is speaking (NO EXCUSES), and ask questions if they do not understand.  Students are expected to keep up with their TSTC assignments and monitor their grade.  It is extremely important to seek tutoring when necessary.  Students may look for a TSTC tutor, visit the professor's office hours, or attend my scheduled tutoring hours at ECHS.
     
    Tutorials - The purpose of study hall is for students to ask questions and receive help on their math homework from a TSTC course.  Students are expected to attend class each day and work on their math homework during class time.  Students should be groups according to course and professor and remain active the entire time.  Because I have a BYOD classroom (Bring Your Own Device), students are allowed to bring laptops, tablets, and smartphones; however, devices are to be used for academic purposes only and technology privileges may be taken away at the teacher's discretion.  Additionally, there will be a "Power Up" or "Power Down" sign indicating whether technology is allowed at that moment.
     
     Calculus AP - Students in the Calculus course will receive a rigorous course load and are expected to complete all homework and class time assignments, including reading or watched flipped videos.  Students are expected to participate during class and ask questions if necessary.  They should seek additional tutoring or refer to flipped videos if remediation is needed.  These students will have the opportunity to take the Calculus AP exam in May which may earn them college credit.  A passing score on the exam is needed to receive the college credit even if the entire course if completed and passed.  This is also a BYOD classroom (Bring Your Own Device), so students are allowed to bring laptops, tablets, and smartphones; however, devices are to be used for academic purposes only and technology privileges may be taken away at the teacher's discretion.  There will be a "Power Up" or "Power Down" sign indicating whether technology is allowed at that moment.
