We're going to have a big year this year!! Together we will do everything we can to make sure every student is ready for Algebra next year. This year each student taking Pre-Algebra is allowed to use a graphing calculator on all tests including the STAAR test. Graphing calculators allowed are a TI 83+ or a TI 84+Grading Policy for Pre-Algebra is slightly different than other courses at SMS in order to better prepare students for the responsibilities and vigor of high school math classes. According to the SMS grading policy Daily Work/Homework will be 40% of the overall average and Tests/Quizzes will count as 60% (45% Tests/15% Quizzes)Math can be very challenging and takes lots of effort and practice. Be sure to check back on my page periodically for updated help, including websites, video lessons, and extra practice opportunities. I will be here to help in any way that I can. Part of this includes TUTORING after school, starting at 3:30 PM, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. I can also be available other times during the week if notified beforehand. I'm looking forward to a great year!
