*Beginning 2013, AP scores will be available to students online instead of by mail. Read the flyer!
All my students should complete the following once they are enrolled in my class.
1. Go to your page for your class and print out the Policies and Student Information Form.
2. Read the policies and complete the form, share with your parent/guardian, and sign.
3. Staple the completed form to the policies (form on top) and turn in promptly for credit.
4. When you get the policies back, keep them in the front of your binder for reference.

LOOKING FOR SOMETHING EXCITING TO DO NEXT SUMMER?
If you are a junior, have a strong academic record, and are interested in the unique opportunity to work with top scientists and researchers AND get paid for doing it, then check out the BLIPS internship opportunity at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley. My son did it and had an amazing experience! You're welcome to stop by and talk to me about it.This past summer, 2012, one of last year's AP Calculus BC students was selected to be among the interns. Time permitting, I will invite him to share his experience with my classes.
For 2012-2013, I plan to be in my room most mornings by 7:45am, and immediately after school for about 15 to 20 minutes. My room will also be open most days during BOTH LUNCHES. A number of my former AP Calculus BC students will hopefully be on hand to tutor any students who come in for help in math.
Some of my past students have indicated that the online tutoring service available for FREE through the Alameda County Library is actually very helpful. While I have not tried it myself, if you are interested in an opportunity to ask questions when you are doing your homework or studying, I suggest you check it out. Click here to go directly to the website. It is called Brain Fuse. You need an Alameda County library card number to access the service.
The website below provides free video lectures/presentations that are topic specific in high school math courses from Algebra through Calculus. Recommended by some of my students, these videos can provide good reinforcement of concepts covered in class, and if you are willing to invest the time and watch them with undivided attention, they may help you improve your understanding and overall success in mathematics!

No matter where and to whom go for help, go be prepared with specific questions and materials.
