Welcome to Algebra I
Here you will find everything you need for Algebra I. Syllabus, assignments, announcements, calendar, resources... the works. I have put a lot of effort into making sure you will always have the resources and opportunities you need to be successful in secondary mathematics. Please take advantage of these and feel free to contact me with any questions or requests.
In Algebra I, you will be pushed to learn the fundamental skills necessary for all other math classes. There is nothing we will cover in class that you will not need later. If anything, we won't have enough time to cover it all! Most importantly, you will experience a class where you are in charge of how much you learn. Loads of resources, Spartan Time, and my regular after-school hours provide you with plenty of opportunity to improve your understanding.
And as always, I am very flexible when students/parents simply talk to me. Family circumstances troubling you, just plain having a bad day, or I really weird you out? Just be honest with me and I'll do whatever I can to help you meet your goals in class.
Remind is a safe, secure app that allows teachers, students, and parents to communicate online or via mobile devices. You can receive daily assignments, updates, notices, chat one-on-one or in groups, and the best part... everyone's phone number stays private. Just text the code for your class to 81010, reply with your name when asked, and you're set!
Please come prepared to class with the following. If you have trouble obtaining any materials for financial reasons, you can talk to me privately to make arrangements.
- Pencils and large erasers (NEVER do math in pen!)
- Graph paper (perforated/loose leaf- no elephant snot)
- Write-view calculator (graphing NOT needed, too expensive. I highly recommend TI 36X Pro)
- Remind and Google Drive apps
- 3-ring binder or expanding file folder
