During this time of distance learning, all student assignments will be on Google Classroom starting April 1 and listed under the classes ASSIGNMENTS and NOTES tab.
Attendance will be taken by students logging into Google classroom, or if not able, sending a brief e-mail stating name, class, and time.
There will be Videos with on-line assignments for students to do. Additionally, we will be using ZOOM on Mondays and Wednesdays 9AM to 11AM for classroom time.
If you do not have access to technology, paper packets for each week can be picked up in front of the school by contacting the school office.
These packets may vary from the original on-line assignments, but will cover the same skills.
My office hours will be 9am to 230pm on school days (to ensure I am able to be in my classroom at FHS).
E-mail me at Stephen.email@example.com as the most reliable way to contact me, as I can respond to e-mails almost any time.
However, you can call and leave a voice mail at the school (352)671-4700 Ext 58642 and I will try to return your call at my earliest opportunity
I DO NOT HAVE ACCESS EVERYDAY TO THE PHONE AND VOICEMAIL.
Please be patient as we all work through this together, and most importantly,
STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY!
My name is Stephen Hickman. I am looking forward to guiding Forest students on their journey of exploring and using the patterns of Problem Solving, Algebra, Geometry, and Statistics to help them approach and solve the problems they will see in their future endeavors. Please look around my website. You can learn more about me and find my contact information on the Meet The Teacher page. I teach two classes for Forest, Geometry and AP Statistics. The class calendar on SKYWARD will include due dates and grades for assignments and other classroom activities.
Geometry focuses on reasoning and problem solving skills used as they study topics such as congruence and similarity, lines, triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons and circles, as well as 2-dimensional (Square) and 3-dimensional (Cube) shapes. Students will develop critical thinking and decision making skills by connecting concepts to practical applications. The content of this course is important for students' success on both the ACT and college mathematics entrance exams, and is a required course for a high school diploma by the state of Florida. Students who complete Geometry should take Algebra 2 or Math for College Readiness next.
AP Statistics is a course aimed at also understanding patterns and departure from patterns; planning and conducting studies; exploring phenomena using probability and simulation; and estimating population parameters and testing hypotheses. We'll first start by exploring data. How is it constructing? What is the sampling method? What conclusions can be made from the data. We will then go into inferential statistics to anticipate patterns, make predictions, and test hypotheses. Students in this course must have at least completed Algebra 2, and should be anticipating applying that knowledge at the end of the course on the College Board AP Exam to obtain college credit. As such, this course will have more of a college atmosphere in teaching methods and student responsibilities.
