COURSE SYLLABUS – PROBABILITY & STATISTICS
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Mrs. Rajpurkar and I will be your Math teacher for this school year. I am excited about teaching you and look forward to working with you to ensure your success in my class. In this class, you will develop insight into mathematical structures for maintaining and analyzing data. You will use tabular, symbolic, graphic and verbal representations to analyze and understand data patterns and be able to predict outcomes and offer projections.
Making this year successful will require a team effort, in which you, your parent/guardian and I are the members of the team. You may expect me to clearly communicate goals and be available to answer questions, provide timely feedback, provide instruction, guidance and support to help you reach your goals.
Please read the enclosed information and go over it with your parent/guardian. Please return the sheet with your and your parent/guardian’s signature. Thank you very much.
Your parent/guardian may contact me at any time during school hours: (714) 569-6300
