    Welcome to my mathematics class!
    I am excited that my classes will be using a learning management system this year. Calendars, assignment information, links to videos, and reminders will be managed through this system.  The application has to run through Google Chrome. 
    Go to canvas.allenisd.org to access CANVAS.
    Students will use his/her Allen ISD network userid and password to login into CANVAS.

    Math Tutoring

    Math tutoring will be available Tuesday-Friday at various times.  The classroom location will be A106. Students may attend any available tutoring session regardless of who they see for math class. Students may also seek assistance with a concept from parents or friends, but they must still complete and show their own work.



    Math 8 (Pre-Algebra)

    Math 8 (Pre-Algebra) is a program designed to prepare the student to study algebra in the ninth grade.  This course will cover pre-algebra concepts such as geometry, numeration, properties, equations and inequalities, statistic, probability, problem-solving, use of graphing calculators and computation applications.  Students in this course will use algebra in working with the concepts.

    Algebra 1

    The focus of Algebra I is to develop in the students the ability to work with linear functions and quadratic  functions. The student will use these functions to develop relationships among the different types of functions and  to understand the attributes of the function. The student will analyze functions graphically, verbally, numerically, and symbolically. Included in the Algebra course is a study of the attributes and properties of polynomials, exponents, irrational numbers, inequalities and square roots and their connection to functions

    Students earn high school credit: the course content and work load are the equivalent of a high school course. Students enrolled in this course should expect extensive outside-of-class preparation. (Student receives 1 high school credit but grade is not included in high school GPA.) . Students will be expected to take four years of math in grades 9-12.

    Welcome to 8th grade!  I am excited to be your math teacher this year.  You can locate classroom documents at canvas.allenisd.org.  We are going to have a great year.
