Hello and Welcome to Algebra II!

 

The following materials are required for this class on a daily basis:

  • Your math notes!! They are required every day. Before I answer your question, we check your notes together. 
  • Pencils, Highlighters (2 or more colors), Expo Marker 
  • Pink Eraser or cap erasers
  • white out (if a student chooses to write in pen)

To create study habits and help students organize their thoughts I recommend:

  • Sticky notes for personal use 
  • Tab dividers/washi tape to distinguish new units/important pages
  • Have a separate binder or folder for Algebra II. 
    • We do not have a textbook in Algebra II. These notes will become your textbook to study for the final exam. We have a mix of worksheets and written notes. You will need a binder for your work or a folder and composition notebook. 
  •  

Does my student need a calculator?

A classroom set of calculators is provided by the school but must remain in the classroom at all times.

If you are interested in purchasing your own personal graphing calculator, here is some helpful information:

  • What type? TI-84+ or TI-84+ Silver Edition (more memory for apps); TI-84+ CE (more memory & color display)
  • Where to buy NEW? Wal-Mart, Target, Office Depot, Office Max, or the Texas Instrument website.  Costs can range from $85.00 to $150.00.
  • Where to buy USED? EBay, Amazon, Craig’s List, The Leaf-Chronicle, Study Masters.  Costs vary depending on where you purchase.  I have seen them as low as $40.00.

*Although graphing calculators are expensive, know that your child will use it for all four years of high school and throughout college as well.*

 

 

Join Google Classroom! This is where you will find your weekly agendas with assignments & activities for the week. 

Check your tech DAILY. I recommend turning notifications on your Chrome browser or your cellphone for student emails and google classroom posts. This is how you will communicate with your teachers outside of class hours.

Be Kind to your classmates. Use encouraging words. Words such as shut up and stupid will not be tolerated.

Be Responsible. Be Respectful. You are responsible for your actions. You are responsible for your learning. Be honest. Be on task.

Be Prepared. Bring your math notebook, laptop, laptop charger, and pencil to class each and every day.

Be on Time. You are expected to be in your assigned seat with your notebook out and bags put away before the tardy bell rings.
