    Welcome to Algebra 1 Essentials!

    This class is made up of students who have an Individualized Education Plan. The team has decided that the students need additional assistance in Math. We are working on Algebra concepts. We will be using the same textbook as the mainstream students in Intermediate Algebra but working at a pace more appropriate to their skills.

    I have been teaching at AVHS since 1999. I had taught for 3 years prior to that, and had subbed for a year while living in Iowa.

    I am a proud AVHS graduate. It has been a lot of fun returning to my alma mater to teach! I received my Elementary Education degree with specializations in Math and Special Ed from Dordt College in Sioux Center, IA. I received my LD and EBD licenses in the Master's Program at Bethel University in St. Paul.

    I love math! I hope that some of my excitement helps to engage the students in their learning.

  • Chapter 8

    We will work on section 8.2 before Spring Break (GCF and factoring by GCF). After Spring Break we will continue with factoring of quadratic trinomials, difference of squares binomials, and choosing appropriate methods to factor polynomials. (8.3, 8.4, 8.5, 8.6)
