*************************************************************

Students can use http://www.interactmath.com throughout the year to help with practice problems and keep them fresh on Math concepts. Math 2 and Math 3 students should select the Universal Algebra II textbook and the Universal Geometry textbook. Pre-Calculus should select the Sullivan Pre-Calculus 5th edition textbook. Free books are also available as iOS or Android apps,in iTunes University or thru CK-12 website.

HS Math Students MUST BE proficient in adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing integers and fractions, solving multi-step equations, solving systems of equations algebraically and graphically, finding line of best fit given a set of data, factoring and solving algebraically quadratic equations, solving quadratic word problems by finding the zeros, roots or vertex, simplifying radicals and finding the mean, median, mode of a given set of data.

Math is not a spectator sport, therefore, the best way to learn Math is by **doing, working problems and being an active learner.** In the class room, students are expected to:

- Be Respectful
- Be Responsible
- Be Attentive
- Be Cooperative
- Be Productive
