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. If a student needs assistance outside of these offered times, he/she may make an appointment with his/her math teacher.
Math 8 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.
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.Schedule:1st Period - Math 8 8:25 - 9:142nd Period - Math 8 9:18 - 10:073rd Period - Math 8 10:11 - 11:004th Period - Homeroom 11:04 - 11:265th Period - Math 8 11:30 - 12:26C-Lunch 12:26-12:566th Period - Algebra 1:00 - 1:497th Period - Conference 1:53 - 2:428th Period - Algebra 2:46 - 3:35
