Welcome to 8th grade Algebra I Pre-AP!
The overarching goal of Algebra I is to help students develop mathematical knowledge, understanding, and skills, as well as awareness and appreciation of the rich connections among mathematical strands and between mathematics and other disciplines.
In accordance with the district's self-directed learning initiative, students will take notes and define key terms/ vocabulary from the section, and answer various practice problems within the textbook. Most of the homework assignments will consist of students completing problems from the day's lesson (odd answers are in the back of the book) as well as coming to class ready with questions for the next day.
Students have HOMEWORK every night and it is posted on the board every day. Students are expected to copy the homework assignment in their agendas. Student success is directly correlated to students continued dedication to completing and checking homework. Please check that your student has COMPLETED the homework assignment each night or before they arrive at school the next day.
*Reminder: All make-up work and retests must be completed by 3:15 on the last day of each 9-week period. No late work accepted after that time.
