Welcome to Algebra II
Here you will find everything you need for Algebra II. 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 II, you will expand your understanding of algebraic concepts like functions and expressions. Think of it like the Algebra Expansion Pack, more in-depth and detailed instruction on the basics you already learned. 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 before/after-school hours provide you with plenty of opportunity to improve your understanding. I am also available nearly 24 hours a day (as long as I am conscious) via Remind.
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
- Wabbit TI-84 Emulator
Open-source emulator for Android smartphones (if you have an iPhone, you already have problems)
- 3-ring binder or expanding file folder
