# Welcome!

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year. I am sure it is going to be a fantastic year for all of us. I will be using this website to keep both parents and students informed.

Throughout the school year, you will be able access homework assignments, important notices, and notes for Algebra I using this website.

Algebra I will be taught as a "flipped" classroom. Students will be responsible for copying the initial notes from this website (Algebra Handouts) prior to the teaching of the lesson. Some notes are in the form of PowerPoints others will be PDFs. Numbered examples in the notes will be demonstrated in class, however, students are encouraged to try them at home - in pencil. By flipping the class, more time can be spent completing problems together or doing other activities that will enhance the comprehension of the material. If internet access is a problem, students are asked to see me to make other arrangements. For example, a jump drive can be used to download the files at school, if access to the internet is a problem. There will still be the traditional "practice" homework assignments, just not as many problems.
