Welcome to Algebra 1! J

My objective for this class is for every student to build confidence and a strong foundation of Algebra.  With this confidence and strong foundation, the student will be better prepared for upper levels of math, exceed their predictions on state mandated exams (EOC – End of Course Exams), and the ACT test.

Your child’s success in Algebra 1 will depend on two things:  great attendance and participation.  Being at school daily and doing practice problems are essential for learning and maintaining the skills being taught. 

My classroom rules are simple:

Be on time; Be prepared; Be respectful; Be positive; Give 110%.

*Supplies needed: 1inch binder, paper, graph paper and pencils & colored pencils.

           Make up work should be completed in a timely manner.  It is the student’s responsibility to make sure make up work is received.  Test and quizzes can be rescheduled IF a day of new material is missed – not a day of review.
