Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year. We are going to have a very busy and productive school year filled with exciting activities and projects.
This one-year course includes the study of properties functions, algebraic functions, of geometric figures of zero, one, two and three dimensions; importance of logical reasoning, justification, and proof in mathematics; geometric thinking and spatial reasoning; the relationship between Algebra and Geometry as well as other disciplines; and problem-solving and computation in measurements of distances, angles, arcs, perimeter, area and volume. Students are expected to keep up with daily assignments and be prepared to demonstrate their understanding of concepts and methods practiced on quizzes and tests. Active participation through sharing problem solving strategies with the class as a whole or in small group discussions is expected from every student.
It is my belief that positive interaction between teacher and parent strengthens the feeling of support all students’ need for success in the classroom. My goal is to create an atmosphere of open communication regarding your child’s progress in class. Please contact me with any questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
