Math For Automotive Technicians
Ketchikan High School – Room 108
Welcome to Math For Automotive Technicians (labeled as Individual Studies in Powerschool). This course focuses on mathematical skills and how to apply these skills in the automotive industry.
In order to ensure an environment conducive for studying, the following rules will be in place each day:
- Come to class prepared to work for the full class period! Use this time to complete homework, classwork, study for tests and quizzes, etc. If students complete work for this class, they may work on assignments from other classes or read silently.
- It is understandable if a student needs to use the restroom during class due to the block schedule. Students will use appropriate sign out tools to document their movements throughout the building. Students are not permitted to leave the classroom for the first 10 minutes and last 10 minutes of class.
- Food and drink are permitted as long as they do not distract from the learning environment. Students are expected to clean up after themselves.
- Cellphone use during class time is prohibited. If a student uses a phone during class, the phone may be confiscated. Teachers will confiscate the device for the rest of the period or day, depending on the number of previous infractions. If the problem persists, school staff may send the phone to the office and/or notify the student’s parents/guardians.
- A student may NOT use electronic equipment such as handheld games during class time. Students may use laptops for school related activities only. Any adult in the room may request laptops be put away if a student is in non-school related applications (chat, games, videos, ect.).
