Welcome to Homeroom 101

Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!!

 

Below you will find an overview of the classes I teach as well as upcoming trips and birthdays:

The Chapel Hill Academy NEW grading policy in Mathematics:

Classwork - 25%

Class Participation - 25%

Tests and assessments - 30%

Homework - 20%

 

Algebra 1:

Algebra 1 consists of a study of the properties and structure of the real number system. Sets of integers, rational numbers, and irrational numbers are covered using all the arithmetic operations. Other topics include graphing, solving equations and inequalities, polynomials, problem solving, equations of a line, and set theory.

Homework:

Monday 5/22 Factoring worksheet
Tuesday 5/23 Solving by factoring worksheet
Wednesday 5/24 Quadratics review
Thursday 5/25 Have a great weekend!
Friday 5/26 Have a great weekend!

 

 

Geometry:

This course is designed to give students an understanding of the nature of a mathematical system and an appreciation of the basic structure of geometry. Emphasis is placed on the role of the inductive and deductive reasoning in mathematical situations. Topics include parallel lines and polygons, perimeter and area analysis, similarity and congruence, and trigonometry. Emphasis will be placed on developing critical thinking skills as they relate to logical reasoning and argument. Students will be required to use different technological tools and manipulatives to discover and explain much of the course content.  This course builds upon the concepts and skills of algebra and geometry and prepares students for college and 21st century careers.

 

Homework:

Monday 5/22 Skills practice 10.7
Tuesday 5/23 Unit 1 multiple choice review
Wednesday 5/24 Skills practice 10.8
Thursday 5/25 Have a great weekend!
Friday 5/26 Have a great weekend!

 

 

Geometry Concepts:

Concepts focus on an in-depth analysis of plane, solid, and coordinate geometry as they relate to both abstract mathematical concepts as well as real-world problem situations. Topics include parallel lines and polygons, perimeter and area analysis, similarity and congruence, and trigonometry. Emphasis will be placed on developing critical thinking skills as they relate to logical reasoning and argument. Students will be required to use different technological tools and manipulatives to discover and explain much of the course content.  This course builds upon the concepts and skills of algebra and geometry and prepares students for college and 21st century careers.

 

Homework:

Monday 5/22 Skills practice 10.7
Tuesday 5/23 Unit 1 multiple choice review
Wednesday 5/24 Skills practice 10.8
Thursday 5/25 Have a great weekend!
Friday 5/26

Have a great weekend!

 

Topics in Science and Math:

This course is intended for students as a fourth year college preparatory mathematics and science elective. It is for students who have demonstrated interest and ability in scientific and technological areas of study. The course will also introduce students to a variety of interesting mathematical topics with an emphasis on concepts not normally covered in the traditional mathematics curriculum but which are increasingly necessary for academic and career preparation. Particular emphasis will be given to the strengthening of technical service laboratory and technological skills. Topics include geometric probability, linear programming, data analysis, matrices, statistical literacy, fractals and chaos, codes, graph theory, voting and fair division. The course reinforces both the content and analytical skills required for the SAT, Accuplacer, and ASVAB tests. Students will be given instruction and trained to work as part of a research and development team.  

Homework:

Monday 5/22 Basic skills packet: pg13
Tuesday 5/23 Basic skills packet: pg14
Wednesday 5/24 Basic skills packet: pg15
Thursday 5/25 Have a great weekend!
