School is back in session! I am looking forward to a great year with all my classes. Be prepared to work hard in my class. If you arrive with a good attitude and willing to put forth sincere effort, then you will be successful. I am challenging you! Keep in mind, students will need to pass the STAAR Alebra I test to graduate. Currently this is the ONLY STATE MATH ASSESSMENT needed for high school graduation. I like to say, "Get it done in one!" Buckle down freshman year by forming good study habits. They will follow you through high school and college. Be like NIKE and "Just do it!"
 
SUPPLIES:   
One inch 3-ring binder with 2 dividers, 1 package notebook paper, 1 dozen pencils and 1 box of tissue. 
 
 
Parents - when the time comes in September, please sign up for parent portal. Students will be informed of current averages every Monday. Let me know if you would like a weekly progress report by email. In addition, I will be asking your child to sign up with me on Remind.

Impressions from Week 1

Wow...I am impressed with my Algebra I students this year! We have been working on building blocks to Algebra and I have had lots of participation in the discussions. Please ask your child periodically what we did in math.  

Algebra I in a nutshell!

We will start the year with basic underlying workings of Algebra and then begin our in depth study of linear functions. From there, we will look at Quadratic, Exponential and finish with Series and Sequences. If you foresee trouble, please check out Khan Academy videos. Don't get behind!
