Get ready to be mathematical thinkers and problem solvers!
This year we will be reviewing topics from PreAlgebra, expanding your knowledge of Algebra and even getting you ready for Algebra 2 topics!
You can expect to have homework almost every night and a couple times a week I will check it in class the next day. I will give you a handout explaining my grading requirements and what is expected of you on the first day.
Upcoming Events & Information
Will be posted on our Google Classroom.
Algebra 1  All Things Algebra by Gina Wilson
This will be our primary book. It will require you to print out certain sections. I will put the sections on our Google Classroom. I will give you the classroom code in class.
Desmos.com is an online calculator that does more than just calculate. We will be using it for graphing, as well as other class activities.
