# Welcome to 2018 - 2019 School Year!

**Common Questions:**

**Why take math? **

- Every students needs 4 years of math to graduate on recommended plan.
- If you are going to college, you must be able to work problems through Algebra 2 to pass the entrance exam to a state college (TSI).

**What if I am absent?**

- Follow the guidelines in the handbook, but in general get the missed work and you have the number of days you missed to make up the assignment. Because you might have a LOT of assignments to make up, please feel free to talk to me about what we can do to get you caught up.

**What do I do if I think I understand it when I leave class, but when I get home by myself I am lost?**

- This will happen. You can search youtube videos or Khan Academy to find an explanation and you MUST attempt to come to morning tutorials. And if none of this is possible, schedule time with me after school to explain one-on-one.

REMEMBER, THE PURPOSE OF THIS CLASS IS FOR YOU TO LEARN AND BE SUCCESSFUL IN YOUR FUTURE!

I will do everything I can to help you be successful.
