Things to Know:
À Every student has the ability to be successful. It is the attitude and expectation of each individual that will set the stage for one’s own success.
À Working problems is a key component to understanding concepts but it is only one component. Students must understand and connect new concepts with concepts already stored in long term memory. Achieving this mastery level learning may require pre-reading concepts, reviewing or rewriting notes, practicing examples, and concluding via group practice and assessment.
Places to go:
À Teacher tutorial and homework assistance after school.
Ø After school from 2:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m.
Ø After 3:30 until 4:30 by appointment
À Additional lessons and practice can be accomplished in the computer labs during study periods before school or after school.
Requirements to follow:
À Please write your name, date, and period in the upper right-hand corner of each sheet for all assignments, tests, and quizzes.

Calculator use: Calculators are not required by the students. They will be used but only in the second semester. Calculators will be provided when necessary.
Computer Labs: Computer labs are located on the top floor in rooms 222 and 224. There will be two programs available for student use. They are the SAS in school and Larson’s PREALGEBRA programs. Both programs provide excellent tutorials for students to independently attain skill and concept mastery.
