Algebra 1 is the start of what most people see as the college preparation classes for mathematics. We will be using the Big Ideas textbook and online supplements. Most of the homework will be offered in an online format and I would like to encourage students to use the online option, but it will not be required. If there is a specific assignment that seems to difficult or lengthy, please make a note on the students homework and sign were you had them stop and we will discuss options in class the next day.
Our job is to connect the State Standards for Mathematical Practice to the Mathematical Content. Higher mathematics (Alg.1 and above) are organized into conceptual categories: Number and Quantity. Algebra, Functions, Modeling, Geometry and Statistics & Probability. The curriculum will be similar to that in high school, so good organization, effort and consistency will be key ingredients to success in this class.
After passing this course, students will be ready to take High School Geometry.
No upcoming assignments.

I will be putting up the program Aleks for you to work on your math skills during this extended hiatus. It would be good to work on your math skills for 30 minutes a day, The program may start with an initial diagnostic test that will then place you in the areas that you need to work on. I will be posting, individually your log on information and then I will email your parents to let them know that this is available. My hope is that you do not fall behind in math as we are so close to the end of the school year.
Make sure you write down your USER NAME and password. I cannot access your password and we do not have unlimited accounts: ONE per student
. I am available by email, or message me through Google Classroom.
This is for Both 7th & 8th Grade Algebra classes (periods A & F)
Class Code: TQLL9-VDUCY
