College/Career & High School Math Readiness
Teacher: Ms. Hopper
Room: 105 (Tech Lab)
Activities will include lecture, small group, computer learning and individual instruction.
The intent of this class is to prepare the student for the ACT.
Daily Required Material:
- folder for notes
- loose leaf college rule paper
There is a class set of calculators for students’ classroom use. If the student works on activities outside of the classroom setting he/she will need to have a scientific calculator.
Regular attendance is critical for success in school. Students are responsible for anything missed while absent. Each student will have individual assignment that may differ from their classmates. For that reason, it is critical that all students come see me either before or after class to discuss what they’ve missed. Two full days are allotted, to complete work for full credit. If a student knows in advance he/she is going to be absent for sports, field trips, etc., please see me before leaving, to get your work. If students are absent the day of a test or quiz, they need to be prepared to take it upon returning.
