Welcome to Mrs. Braband's Contact & Resource Page

Please check your student's Google Classroom for the e-learning plan for assignments and resources.

Hello. I am Teri Braband, Bachelor of Science in Mathematics graduate of Illinois State University and Master of Science in Secondary Education Curriculum graduate of Northern Illinois University. I have over 30 years of teaching experience in Math and have worked the last 12 years at NVHS.

This page is simply informational and provides links to the classes I teach, either PreCalculus or College Algebra. On e-Learning days, students are responsible for using Single Sign-On (SSO) and going to Google Classroom at 7:25 a.m. for the daily assignments.

Neither class has a physical text, but PreCalc has access to MathXLfor homework through the Pearson Easy Bridge link which can be accessed through the student Single Sign-On(SSO) through nvhs.ipsd.org. The PreCalc text is a pdf format located in the Google Classroom.

College Algebra is a course which utilizes different avenues for providing content and assessment practice to students with the goal of easing the transition for college readiness. We partner with College of DuPage in response to the Post-Secondary Workforce Readiness Act (PWR) of Illinois, but this is not a dual credit course. 1) We will utilize theme-based projects and tasks connecting learned math from previous courses with real world problems sets 2) We will use the ALEKS.com site as active weekly practice to maintain and improve upon math skills needed as they transition to college, and 3) C.O.D. will offer opportunities for students in this course to take the ALEKS PPL Math placement test which may be needed for determining math placement in a college course in their freshman year. A portion of those assessments will be proctored at NVHS.

Most information needed for either class can be found in the course's Google Classroom link which student must access through Single Sign-On(SSO) . Below are the provided links.
