Objective:

Students will apply concepts learned from Algebra 1, to more complex concepts of math, particularly in solving equations

Materials Needed:

Students will need a multiple paper for assignments, pencils, and 3 ring binders

Textbook: Geomtry and Eureka Geometry

Course Expectations:

Students are to be in class on time with materials needed for the day. Students are only allowed three tardies. Anything after the third is a detention. Students are expected to take notes during lecture. Following lecture, homework will be assigned. Homework will be due the following day after assigned. All work has to be shown for credit. No Work equals zero for the problem. When absent, you have 3 days to complete your work. I expect full participation in this class. This includes asking questions and coming in on your own time for extra understanding of the homework at the time.
