    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.khanacademy.org and www.youtube.com both offer great tutorials

    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!

     REMIND: 

    This year I will be using the program REMIND for my Algebra classes.  This is an app that will allow me to message students and parents reminders.  For information please email me or ask your student.  I will also have information available at Open House.  

     

  • Grading:



    Homework is assigned daily.  Quizzes and Tests are given for each unit.  Exit/Enter Tickets are given as needed through each unit, but only test the skills from one lesson. Weekly Reviews are assigned weekly.  They are handed out on Monday and are due in class on Friday.  I will check completed weekly reviews if they are completed earlier in the week.  Corrections can be made for full credit.  

    Homework 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.  Homework is worth 30%.  

    Quizzes and Tests cannot be retaken. Enter/Exit Tickets can be taken unlimited times within one week from the original quiz date.  Retakes can only score a maximum of 85%.

  • 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.
