How you ask?
www.emathinstruction.com This website is where all of our lessons come from.
http://mathbitsnotebook.com/Algebra1/Algebra1.html This website offers an online notebook.
www.purplemath.com and www.algebra.com allow you to search by topic as well. Geometry students may find www.algebra.com to be helpful for the problems in which Algebra is applied to Geometric figures.
www.ixl.com is a fan favorite because it only allows a student to complete about 19 questions each day. All Algebra and Geometry topics can be found on this site.
https://www.engageny.org/resource/regents-exams-mathematics-algebra-i-sample-items offers the Sample Algebra Questions released by NY State Ed. There are 2 sets of questions with answers.
Parents get involved too! Take your children to the grocery store and have them calculate the numbers, show them the linear function on the gas pump (as more gallons go in, the price goes up at a constant rate), the dog food bin has a specific volume and the scoop also has a volume. Have your son/daughter figure out the numbers of feedings before a new bag of food is needed to be purchased. If there are sales on the dog food calculate the percent savings. Math is everywhere!

Course Assignments and Assessments:
Homework is assigned daily. Algebra is a very fast paced course and therefore homework is assigned daily and is due the day after it was assigned. I have a zero tolerance for late homework. Late homework or incomplete homework will receive a score of a zero.
Quizzes and Tests are given for each unit. Assessment retakes are not available in this course.
Exit/Enter Tickets are given as needed through each unit, but only test the skills from one lesson.
Weekly Reviews are assigned on Mondays and are due on Fridays.
Absentees for Algebra:
If your child is absent you can upload all assignments for Algebra on www.emathinstruction.com. Click on Algebra 1 Common Core under the Free Textbook title. Click into the appropriate unit number and all assignments are there. The first link is for the classwork/homework and the "watch the video" link will take you to a YouTube video that aligns with the classwork.
