    Beginning of Year Info

     
         

       

    The Summer Assignment (click here) packet needs to be completed by the 1st day of school...it will be collected & graded. We will review it and then have a quiz soon after.

    Summer Packets have been suspended for the 2020-2021 school year.

    I anticipate moving over to the Schoology platform for the 2020-2021 school year. As soon as courses are released, I will populate Schoology with all the pertinent information. But for now, the information below is accurate for the coming school year...


    You will need a notebook (3 ring, spiral, whatever) with at least 3 sections...classwork, homework, & a theorem section. A folder to keep handouts & such would help too.

    You will also need a Function notebook. It should be one of those marble covered Composition Notebooks with graph paper inside like one of these...

        Function Notebook Function Notebook 2

    You can pick one up at the school store cheap! This Function Notebook will be used by you for the rest of your high school career...3 years!

     

    We will be using a graphing calculator  throughout the year.

    It is NOT required to purchase one. However, if you decide to purchase one, there are 2 choices:

          TI NSpire  CX  (or CX II if available, newer version)
          TI-84 Plus CE  
           (do NOT get a "CAS" version of any calculator- you won't be able to use it on the NJSLA!).

    NSpire

    Save any "Proof of Purchase" points from the package. We would appreciate it if you could turn them in...the school turns them in
    to TI & receives technology "rewards" from them.
     
    Getting a used calculator from your older brother or sister is perfectly acceptable as well. You will have to wipe the  memory though. 

    And lastly...Welcome, we'll have a great year.
