During the 2 week mandated closure, students can access instructional content for my class from the assignment section on my webpage. On the web page, the class information section will list the class codes for each class by hour along with the Remind code for that class. I will be available to support you with questions via email during my office hours of 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. My school email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
WELCOME TO MRS. GOODMANS ALGEBRA CLASS
Math is the subject people love to hate. It is a challenge for many, but it is a challenge that can be overcome. I believe that anyone can be successful in math if they are willing to put in the work. It is my opinion that more than any other subject you study, the only way to get good at math is to do math! Those who do the homework will most likely pass the tests! You should expect to have 30 minutes of homework three to four nights each week as well as some longer assignments from time to time. If you have questions, or if you are struggling, please let me know ASAP!!!
As far as calculators go, I highly recommend that all students have their own graphing calculator. The curriculum of most high school math classes (as well as future college classes) will require the use of an advanced level graphing calculator. It is important for students to learn specific skills in class and practice them while doing homework and studying for tests and quizzes. I strongly recommend making an investment in this tool as it will be helpful for many years in your math education. Although there are many approved calculators, we recommended purchasing a TI-84 from Texas Instruments since this is the model that will be used in the classroom.
A bad attitude about MATH is like a flat tire….you can’t go anywhere until you change it!!
I am committed to your success, and I BELIEVE IN YOU! Together we will be successful this year!
