Practice Outside of Class

The goal of the class is to learn and understand Algebra 1. Students have different learning styles and needs. The work done in class will revolve around investigations, inquiry, and problem solving. All practice will also be completed in class. To assist students who would benefit from an individual pace, any student may take part in the Algebra 1 Mission with Khan Academy outside of class or during RTI. Although not assigned by the teacher, a student's progress with Khan Academy can be taken into account when the student requests test retakes.

 

Students: Be sure to log in to Khan Academy using your school gmail account. Contact your teacher if you have any questions.
