Let's talk about testing...

In my classroom students are given a study guide that covers all that will be on the test. I try to give this out a few days in advance so they can work on it over the course of a few days instead of cramming the night before.

Something else you might want to know is that if the student brings it in completely finished with all work shown on the day it is due he/she will get 5 extra credit points on the test.

After testing is completed and graded I do spiral reviews until we cover all the material the students as a whole had trouble with.

Let's talk about homework...In Algebra II we have homework almost daily because this is a subject that must be practiced in order to be successful, therefore, homework grades are based on completion of the practice problems provided that the student shows all work necessary as covered in class. If your student has a zero for an assignment that means he/she just didn't even attempt it.

Calculators...Students in Algebra II will need to have access to a TI 84 (or later) graphing calculator. We have classroom sets that they can use while in class if a calculator agreement form is signed by both parent and student and turned in too me. You may elect to purchase your own calculator for use so they have access to one for homework as well, however I would encourage everyone to complete a form anyway just in case something happens, like forgetting one's calculator at home on test day...

Welcome students and parents to Kenwood High School and my classroom. I have high expectations for everyone and will try to get everyone to reach their potential and beyond. I won't promise that it will be fact, you should know that Algebra II will be a challenge, but I will do my best to help you (your child) be successful.
