Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

Welcome to the new school year. I would like your child to have the best possible success in my class. To do this, your child needs to develop and adapt their learning to 21st century demands. This means, you also play a vital role in shaping your child’s education and I would encourage a team approach to aid your child to be successful in his or her education. The importance of mathematics holds great magnitude in today’s world. It is required for many college degrees and is ever present in almost all jobs now. The nature of mathematics trains the brain to think logically for essential problem solving skills. With this in mind, I would like to offer some free on line resources to guide your child to become a more self-directed learner and become more comfortable with using technology. The link to the parent letter is located below.

These texts are available through Glencoe-McGraw Hills Online Learning Center. If you examine the chapters and sections they are the same or at some point just one chapter or section off. You can have Mr. Hardesty, Mrs. Workman & others explain the problem over and over without getting tired. See the tutorials under chapter and section. You can take self-check quizzes and submit answers with immediate feedback as to whether they are correct. Unfortunately the pages referenced do not apply since this is not the exact text. Also, there are teacher examples in text if all you need to see is another problem. Check it out! Enter state: NJ subject: mathematics, Get Resources: Algebra 1 or 2, whichever applies. Choose the latest text version 2010. The algebra 2 text has a volley ball player & the algebra 1 has a runner.
