    Algebra I Honors

     

    Dear students and parents,

    Welcome to another exciting year at Dunnellon Middle School. Algebra I Honors will be a challenging and rigorous course, however high school credit can be earned after passing the End-Of-Course exam. Students will delve deeper into several topics previously covered in middle school math, along with exploring several new concepts and skills that can be applied outside of the classroom. This course  will require more effort and time than other math courses taken before. Working together with fellow classmates, we will all do our very best to succeed.

     

    Textbook: Pearson Algebra 1

    The students will also have access to the Algebra 1 textbook online by logging onto their portals, clicking on the brown icon labeled Course Schedule under the eTextbook tab, and by clicking the link next to Algebra 1 Honors.

    The textbook can be found by clicking PROGRAMS and homework can be found by clicking CLASSES

    Expectations: Every student is expected to come into the classroom with a positive attitude. All students will respect one another, the teachers and the faculty. Students need to come prepared to class every day and work during the whole class. Participation in class activities is crucial in the learning process. Students will be given a short quiz at the end of each week which covers the topics covered earlier in the week. Homework will be assigned at the beginning of each week, (roughly 1 hour) and be due at the beginning of the following week. Lastly, tests will be given at the end of each chapter.
