Welcome to Math 2

I am so excited to have all of my students back in class this year. I look forward to getting to know each of you and teaching you some math.

It is very important that you are on time and prepared for class each day. If for some reason you are absent it will be up to you to find out what you have missed. Check Google classroom daily for all assignments and nightly homework. If you need additional help in math outside of class we are offering the Math Center every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday after school from 2:45 to 3:15.

I expect each student to show respect to all other students, teachers, and school administrators. If you have any problems in class that cause you concern, please let me know immediately and I will take appropriate action. Also if you have any questions about your grade or performance in class please come and talk with me.
