If you find yourself in the middle of a challenging section, I hope you'll take GREAT notes, visit the Math Tutor Room, come in to see me for extra help and/or work with a friend. You have to work HARDER as the material becomes more challenging. Make me proud!
If you're visiting this site "just because" then GOOD FOR YOU. If you're here because you weren't in class today, we missed you! Get notes from a friend as well and visit the math tutor room if necessary. When you return to class, remember to check the folder (for your class period) to get any papers that were passed out during your absence. Let me know if I can help you before/after school. Take those vitamins and get plenty of sleep, because it's always better to be IN CLASS! Now, find the link for your class and get ready to have some MATH FUN!!!
Reminder: Please remember that if you miss ONLY the DAY BEFORE a test is given, you will still take the test with your class. No new material is taught the day before a test that you would be expected to master over night!
Class slides (by course) - Choose the correct date to see what we did in class today. (PLEASE also get notes from a friend and see me for extra help.) Simply "click" on the underlined link to view the appropriate slides. I usually keep the slides posted for just a few days after we test over a chapter or big unit. I don't keep the daily slides on for the entire year... too much for the site to save.
