Calculators: Everyone needs a calculator of their own in class. A TI-30 or TI-34 is a good choice. A graphing calculator is not necessary at this level and TI's are much better for students than Casios
Please use the calendar handed out in class for information on assignments and tests. It is linked above. There is no need to call the school for a homework request. All students have a calendar and know what the assignments are. Book work should be completed before returning to school in order to keep up with the class. Students should ask for any handouts before they are absent for any planned absences. Students who are unexpectedly absent will need to pick up handouts when they return or have another student pick up the handouts for them.
Grades are always posted and students always know how they are doing in this class. Parent access to Skyward is available to see students' grades.
so . . . just talk to your son or daughter about how they are doing in class and what assignments they have, because they have that information.
