Greetings and Salutations!
 
1 2 3...Math, the only subject that counts :-)
 
Welcome to what I hope will be another exciting year of learning! 
 
Once again,  Precalculus will be structured different from previous years. The first semester will cover topics that will lead into Calculus and the second semester will cover Trigonometry. 
 
The Precalculus class will  have its share of projects and activities to enhance the academics of the classroom, although this is a college track course, therefore, students should be prepared to work at a college level!
 
Geometry students be prepared for yet another year of standardized tests.  I do not teach to a test, I teach to provide my students with the necessary skills so  they can successfully take and pass the test. This year will include more online components to enhance the learning and better prepare the students for the state test. Warning: Hard work is required by all who wish to be successful not only in my classroom but also on the standardized test!  Not to worry: Geometry students will have their share of projects and activities to enhance their learning.
 
Modeling and Quantitative Reasoning is a project based class. The majority of the projects are all STEM projects which correlate science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
 
 April Update:
