Welcome to my High School Math 1 Site!
All you will find here is my syllabus, the West Ada School District's course description, and a link to the course page I maintain in Microsoft Teams. You must have a student username and password in order to access this information. If you are a parent of a student enrolled in my class, obviously you can use your child's login information to access the course materials, but I can also generate a parent code for you to join the class. Just let me know!
West Ada School District Course Description: The fundamental purpose of this course is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in the middle grades. The critical areas, organized into units, deepen and extend understanding of linear relationships, in part by contrasting them with exponential phenomena, and in part by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend. This course uses properties and theorems involving congruent figures to deepen and extend understanding of geometric knowledge from prior grades. The final unit in the course ties together the algebraic and geometric ideas studied. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations. A graphing calculator is highly recommended. This course is an approved NCAA course.
