General Description:

This one-year course in Algebra 1 is for students in 7th– 9th grade. We use Glencoe’s Algebra 1 textbook plus the corresponding Glencoe consumable workbook to use in class for practice. Algebra 1 is the first of four math credits your student is required to take in order to graduate from high school and lays the foundation for all future math classes, which is why it is so important to master the subject matter.
An essential component of succeeding in this class is learning the vital in-class skills of listening, taking notes, practicing with workbook problems and asking questions. Students will be taught these skills repeatedly throughout the year. In addition to the in-class skills, students will need to practice good study skills at home. They will be required to complete three lessons outside of class every week and will be quizzed on those lessons with a short weekly in-class quiz. Parents and students need to correct all assigned homework by using the answer key at the back of the book. When students have questions about the material, they are encouraged to email, call or text the instructor. Algebra 1 is an excellent time for students to acquire and independently practice good study habits as they prepare for their future.
