  • Hey, there!

    I'm thrilled to be your math teacher this semester, and I hope this website will be useful to you as we power through the next few months! Here, you'll find links to Powerschool, a downloadable graphing calculator, and other useful tools. I'll also post weekly updates on what we've been covering as well as our class and homework schedule. Please feel free to contact me anytime using the e-mail link above.

    Get ready for a great semester and a whole lot of FUN!

March 3-7, 2014

Hello, all!

So sorry for the delayed post this week, but I figured we would wait and see what the weather did before another schedule was interrupted!

This week in Honors Algebra II, we’ve finished up our unit on linear systems and matrices, and we’ll be testing tomorrow (Thursday).  Answers to the review we did today are posted below, and we’ll plan to jump into Unit 4 on Friday!  This next unit will be a really short one on linear programming, so we’ll plan to test again next Thursday.

In Academic Algebra II, we’re also wrapping up linear systems and matrices, except they’ve already tackled linear programming!  We’ll plan to test Friday, and then we’ll move into Unit 4, which is all about factoring and quadratic equations (yay, parabolas!) on Monday.  I’ll plan to post their review answers on Thursday evening so they can study.

In Common Core 1B, we’re just starting to figure out quadratic equations and parabolas and will be busy this week learning all the different parts of a parabola!  Students started on a graphic organizer today to help them visualize and study definitions and pictures, so be sure to ask them about it!

And with that, here are our schedules for the week!
