As we near the end of school, we are still working. Intermediate Algebra II students have been reviewing the past two weeks for the upcoming Algebra EOC next week. After EOC, we will do a small unit on right triangle trigonometry. . . .
A week off of bad weather has not stopped us from picking up and moving forward in the high school. Pre-calculus students are continuing in the unit on exponential, logistic, and logarithmic . . .
The geometry class is nearing the end of chapter 5. We have been proving triangles congruent and solving problems once we know the triangles are congruent. We will be testing over this unit in about a week and then . . .
I am occasionally asked, “Why do I need to learn this?”. My response is often “To graduate from high school so you can pursue your dreams”. I remind students that there is more to learning than . . .
We have finally tested in all classes, so a student should have a really good idea on how he is doing. Any struggling student should seek out help in understanding the material. I am available before and after school if additional help is . . .
February and 3rd quarter are both quickly coming to an end. Pre-calculus students are in the middle of an exponential/logarithmic unit. When we are done with this unit, we will finish the year studying trigonometric . . .
October is quickly passing. Pre-calculus students are nearing the end of a general study of the twelve basic functions. We will finish the unit looking at transformations of functions and will then test . . .
We are almost to the end of our first week in math class. Students are learning the routine of being where they are supposed to be and learning class expectations. I am trying to put names with new faces . . .
It has been an interesting winter trying to learn math concepts interrupted with snow days. We are finally testing over exponential functions in intermediate algebra II class and will begin a unit on . . .
As I am writing this, students are heading out to begin their Thanksgiving holiday. It feels good to stop and refresh with a much-needed break. When we return on Monday, our pre-calculus . . .
The calendar is screaming that the end of first semester is looming. It always seems surprising that time could go so quickly. In 8th grade math class we just finished . . .
