# Welcome 11th Graders!

Hello students,

My name is Sylvia Bryant but you can call me Mrs. Bryant. For the remainder of your eleventh grade year we will be mathematical enthusiasts. It is my goal to show you how to use math in real life, outside of schools and exams. We will be working together to build your problem solving skills and application of those skills. We will also be using your extensive knowledge of technology to help build those skills. Listed on the about me page is my email address and personal contact number. If you have any questions while doing your homework, do not hesitate to contact me for assistance after having exhausted all possible resources. We will also create a buddy system in which phone numbers and email addresses are exchanged with fellow classmates so that you can help each other with homework.

If there is anything in this syllabus that is unclear, ask for clarification.
