Algebra 2

Welcome back to your first quarter of the school year! 

Algebra 2 will be a brand new experience this year as we are moving into a more rigorous approach to an age old course.  Student's should expect to open their minds to finding solutions to all levels of problems.  Working backwards will help students learn to find errors but will also help to master concepts.  Students should expect approx 30 minutes of homework each night in Algebra 2.

We will begin this quarter by reviewing previous concepts and rounding out our already developed skills with basic arithmetic (including Order of Operations) and basic algebra skills (such as balancing equations).In addition, we will be using problem solving skills to determine best methods for finding solutions and determining appropriateness of said solutions.  The topics will use expressions, equations and inequalities at every stage in the process.

It will be EXTREMELY important for students to be prepared every day for class. This includes having a pencil, paper, taking notes, calculators, text books, etc.  Students should expect to have a new concept for practice each day, therefore approx 20-30 mintues of homework.  Don't wait until the last minute! Prepare everyday for the next and review constantly.  Come in for help BEFORE you get overwhelmed! 

Opt Out: Student's must have an 85% and complete all final review materials.

**Note to parents and students: The final for the fall semester is a CUMULATIVE FINAL.  Students should be constantly reviewing all first and second quarter material as they learn new material throughout the first semester of school.**
