SMHS Algebra I


This is a basic website that I put together in order to share assignments and helpful resources with students and parents. Below you will find an outline of the Algebra I course so far this year. It includes standards, topics, IXL problems and Khan Academy videos. You can use this to find the weekly IXL problems that students must work on for at least 30 minutes a week. You can also find resources for specific performance indicators that need remediation or extra practice.
