"Work Hard, Be Nice. It is that simple."
"Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think" - Albert Einstein
I am looking forward to an exciting year building our THINKING CLASSROOM together. This will help us have a deeper understanding of the "why" behind the Algebra and Geometry content we learn to apply, rather than just "mimicking" what we have been shown to do.
Algbera: Units: #1 Modeling with Linear Equations and Inequalities, #2 Modeling with Linear Functions, Linear Systems, and Exponential Functions, #3 Modeling with Quadratic Equations, Functions, and Polynomials, and #4 Modeling with Statistics
Geometry: Units: #1 Congruence and Constructions, #2 Congruence, Similarity, and Proofs, #3 Trig Ratios and Geometeric Equations, and #4 Geometry with Modeling
***Please note: There is no online version of our textbook. Your child's Algebra or Geometry TEXTBOOK will be given to him/her during the first week of school. All students will be asked to bring the textbook home and to be used as an additional resource when working at home.

Students will be given 1 WEEK to complete and submit a formative or summative assignment. Teachers will use their discretion about dropping points for late assignments. If not handed in for partial credit after one week, the assignment will receive a Zero.
Assignments that are not submitted on time will have a “0” place holder UNTIL the assignment is completed and submitted. Once a grade is placed, the Zero is removed.
