New!!! Videos of Lessons

I'm now recording my lessons and putting them on the classroom blog. There's a page for Algebra and Pre-Algebra. If you are absent or want to review a particular lesson, you can go to the appropriate page and watch the lesson.

I'll do my best to keep up with what we do in class so you should be able to catch up if you miss a class or just need a little more help.

Let me know what you think!

Keeping Track of What's Happening In Our Class

Hopefully by now you have this page bookmarked in your browser. This should be one of the first places you go to when at school. If you have questions about what your responsibilities are for my class, you can most likely find the answers here.

Here are somethings you should check out:

  1. Homework Page - This page will tell you what your homework is, when it's due and how it should be done.
  2. Khan Academy Page - Here, you'll find the exercises you need to complete in Khan Academy.
  3. Extra Credit Page - I've explained how to raise your test scores should you do poorly on a test or quiz.
  4. School Calendar - This is a calendar about our school's schedule: days off, vacations, minimum days, etc.
Before you come to me with questions about our class, you should check here first. You are responsible for your education and you, alone, must take the initiative to make sure you are meeting your responsibilities.
