Good Morning San Tan Families and HAPPY NEW YEAR! Welcome back from a wonderful break, hope everyone is rested and ready for the second half of our journey this school year. This second semester will be even more challenging as the content will be even more challenging for the second half of this year. Also we will have a three-day weekend the following week as Next Monday is Martin Luther King on January 15th (No School). Reminder to continue with the help in BOX TOPS which help bring in free money to San Tan and our students. Let’s finish this year strong.
In addition, Intervention is over, however your son and daughter if they would like extra help in math can set up times for tutoring with myself during encore or before school. Your son and daughter needs to have dates and times set up so we ensure I am available to help support their needs. Thank You!
- Remember students should be logged into ALEKS for a minimum of two hours a week. This means the students get 45 minutes of this time every Monday in class. Then they should do an additional 15 minutes every day (Mon-Friday). This can be done in Encore and therefore most students should never have any homework if completed in class.
Math I & II will be starting this week on…
Math Course I:
- This week’s Focus will be GRAPHING Linear Equations & Starting Proportions. This Chapter is very important so we will take time as there are many concepts presented in one chapter.
- ALEKS is worked on every Monday in class, working to a minimum of 80% completion by the end of the year.
Math Course II:
The week’s agenda is the same as above with higher level problems. This Chapter is very important so we will take time as there are many concepts presented in one chapter.
Algebra I and A/B:
- Same as above with ALEKS
- We will be WORKING ON POLYNOMIAL EQUATIONS and FACTORING, . This Chapter is very important so we will take time as there are many concepts presented in one chapter.
************ REMEMBER IN ALL CLASSES ALEKS MUST BE WORKED ON EVERYDAY FOR ( 15- 20 MINUTES) EITHER AT HOME OR THIS COULD BE COMPLETED IN ENCORE CLASS***************
