General Announcements

I use the following books extensively in this class. I do not 
require students to purchase these texts, but I strongly 
recommend it. Both books are fairly inexpensive, and will be 
great resource to students during their high school career 
(and even into college).  I have provided links to these 
resources on this site, but a book is always more beneficial 
when one can write in it, mark it up, and make it one's own. 
For purchasing information, see the links below.
