About the Course
Algebra 1 '23/24

In this Algebra 1 course we will be using a curriculum designed and tested over the last 10+ years by many teachers, including Corry.  We will start the year with a pre-algebra review to ensure all students have the foundation skills needed before we dive into Algebra 1. 


The structure of the class will be as follows:


- Lessons taught in class with step by step notes and examples.  I will have all notes and examples loaded for parents and students to reference during the week, if needed. 


- Activities and 'diving deeper' into concepts will be a regular part of class.


- Warm up activities and homework will be sent home with students to complete and bring back to class the following week (warm up activities will be a type of 'spiral' review to ensure students don't 'loose' important skills).


- Short quizzes will help students prepare for unit tests. 


- We will grade and go over all quizzes and homework in class to ensure students understand any mistakes they have made and are able to learn from them. 


- Tests will be completed at home, proctored by parents and graded by Mrs. Smith. 


- To help ensure students have all the resources they need during the week, students will have access to online video clips of Mrs. Smith going over examples problems.


- Mrs. Smith is also available during the week to answer questions via email or text.


There is no physical "published" textbook to purchase, I will provide a notebook with all materials needed (materials cost of $50).  


Students will need a scientific calculator (graphing calculator will be needed in Algebra 2 & Geometry/Trig): Here are two options: https://a.co/d/hCcERGE or https://a.co/d/g3kiO7I.


If you would like to purchase a calculator that will work for Algebra 1, Algebra 2, & Geometry/Trig here are two options: There is no physical "published" textbook to purchase, I will provide a notebook with all materials needed (materials cost of $50). https://a.co/d/7uw2Vpm or https://a.co/d/7uw2Vpm. 


This will be a different curriculum than we have used in years past, over the last few months I have used pieces of it in all of my classes and asked studends what they felt helped them learn the material better - it was unanimous that students wanted to step by step notes with specific examples.  I have also spoke with several parents and board members to ensure we pick the best curriculum for all of our students!
