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%.
Grading Scale Class Grades
A: 10093 Tests 30%
B: 9285 Quizzes 30%
C: 8475 Classwork 20%
D: 7470 Bellwork/Participation 20%
F: below 70
*Supplies needed: 1inch binder, paper, graph paper and pencils & colored pencils.
**WISH LIST: Kleenex, highlighters, dry erase markers
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.
