April 6, 2020....
Hello Algebra 2 students!
Hope you have enjoyed your long Spring Break! Some of you are bored, I know..., and some of you have been working outside and around the house. My family and I have been tidying up the farm (things that have been on the back burner) and doing taxes (yuck).
Now, back to why you are on here....... As a math department, we feel like it would be overwhelming to finish this class alone. So, all students will be enrolled in a "Transitional Math Class". This class will be a review of the 1st semester. You have a notebook with notes on all of this. Hopefully, you can locate your graphing calculator. So, relax and breathe.
Three things will happen each week: 1) vocabulary, 2) interactive review on my.hrw.com, and 3) review on gmm.getmoremath.com. It is important that you do the interactive assignments on my.hrw.com first before doing gmm assignments. You may choose to do the vocab first, second, or third each week.
The following was set up before this crisis hit. After you look at it, you will notice that we were doing graphs and some of them involved absolute value, so I feel like we were not behind. We were right on schedule. For the second semester, YOU WILL FINISH ALGEBRA 2 AT A LATER DATE. In the next 6 weeks, you will take the transitional math class as an elective credit.
I have never done a blog before, so it will probably sound like I am rambling...check it out to the left of this page in the blue panel, last selection.
