    This is my sixth year at Hawfields.  I will be teaching two sections of 8th grade math and two sections of Math 1.  The Math 1 curriculum includes more advanced components of Algebra/Functions as well as a unit on Geometry and a unit on Statistics.  The 8th grade curriculum is rigorous including many concepts previously taught in Algebra 1.  

    Each week, I will update Power School and my web page with homework for all classes.   If homework is a handout, that will also be noted. The "Handouts" tab on my webpage has PowerPoint notes that can help with homework.  They are listed in alphabetical order.   Also, check out the "On-line Resources" tab for links to sites that can help answer homework questions (Purple Math, Khan Academy) and provide additional practice through math games (Thatquiz.org).  I strongly encourage students to practice the concepts.  Study Island and IXL are excellent resources that we will use throughout the year.
     
    Supplies:   Pencils, pencils, pencils.   Pencils and notebook paper are an important daily requirement for math class.  Be sure your student replenishes their personal supply of paper and pencils each nine weeks.  Suggested supplies include:

    pencils
    notebook paper
    8th grade math class : composition book (for notes )
    Math 1 class: 1-inch binder with 10 dividers for notes and handouts


    Math 1 Calculator:  The school will supply graphing calculators that can be used in class but students can not take them home.  As we move into more complex problems later in the year, the Math 1 students may find a graphing calculator useful for homework.  The TI-84 should be sufficient up to high school Calculus.  As students become more comfortable with the TI-84 calculator this year, the transition into Math 2 next year will be much easier.   Students can also use a TI-83.  There is also a graphing calculator app on many cell phones.  They can't use their cell phone at school but this will help with homework.
