    Coach Brooks

    Welcome to Algebra I! 

    Class Supply List: 
    pencil (not pen) and paper, three-ring binder for notes, homework done (all of these every day!)

    TI-83 calculators are recommended but not required.  Each student will be provided a calculator during class to work with; however, these calculators cannot leave the classroom.

    Class Rules and Procedures:

    RESPECT (each other, teachers, the classroom)
    TRY (not paying attention, doing the work, coming in for tutoring as needed, etc. are the only ways to fail this class)
    REMEMBER (people in less fortunate locales do not have the privilege of going to school; education is a ticket--be thankful!

    Grading Procedures and Tutorials:


    Tests and daily work each count 50%.  Quizzes will be weighted into the daily work grade.


    Retests/requizzes are always available for grades below 70.


    I offer extra credit occasionally on homework, tests and quizzes; as such, there will be no "official" extra credit assignments. 

    Tutoring:  1st and 2nd six weeks:  4:00 – 4:20.  3rd-6th six weeks:  8:00 – 8:20.

    All tutorials are by appointment (please let me know ahead of time that you are coming the next day).
