Bio

I was born and raised in southwest OKC and Moore and went to Westmoore High School.  I went to OU for 6 years to study Mechanical Engineering and Electrical/biomedical Engineering.  In 2013 I took a job in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma for FlightSafety International where I programmed navigation software for flight simulators.  I worked there for three and a half years and in January 2017 I decided that I wanted to be an educator and not an engineer anymore.  I am working on my master's degree through the  University of Phoenix online program currently.  I am very happy to be working for such an awesome district in an awesome city with such awesome people.  Before long I'll probably forget I ever was a Jaguar or even a Sooner, and I'll just be a Bronco. 

Why Education?

As my parents could tell you, I have said from an early age that I wanted to be a teacher.  I have always enjoyed helping others learn in many ways.  Coaching basketball while I was in high school was my first real experience of this. Being able to see my team get better as the season moved along made everything worth it.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This class introduces and develops the concepts of quadratic relations and functions, polynomial functions, radical functions, rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, and conic sections.  There is an emphasis on graphing, the understanding of translations, and locating important parts of graphs.  Students will understand and communicate models in four ways – graphically, algebraically, numerically, and verbally.  We will explore arithmetic and geometric sequences and series, matrices, probability, and statistics.  Computations in this class require mastery of Algebra I skills.  

MATERIALS

Required daily:  A positive attitude, a spiral notebook or 3 ring binder, and a pencil. A  of a scientific calculator is suggested but not required for this class (such as a TI-30XS Multiview).  Some calculators are prohibited in this class; see the ACT list of prohibited calculators: http://www.actstudent.org/faq/calculator.html.

CLASS GRADE

30% - Concept checks based on suggested homework assignments, Class Activities      

70% - Quizzes, Tests, Semester Exam

CLASSROOM POLICIES

I expect the rules in the handbook to be followed at all times.  These rules are here to provide an environment conducive to learning.  Any discipline actions required in the handbook will be given.  I have only three classroom policies and they sum up the entire handbook.

1.    Be respectful – to yourself, to others, and to the learning environment.

2.    Be prepared – each day with your assignments, supplies, and positive attitude.

3.    Be prompt – Come to class daily.  All personal business should be taken care of before class. 3 tardies = 1 absence and a referral for 3 detentions ?

CONCEPT CHECKS-

Recommended problems will be given it is up to the student to complete. Concept checks will be given every 2-3 days based on the recommended problems.  It is the students responsibility to complete and comprehend the recommended problems so they can do well on the graded concept checks. 

TESTS/QUIZZES

Quizzes will be used to make a quick assessment of your knowledge.  Tests are cumulative and have both multiple-choice and show your work type questions.  Take good notes!  Complete your assignments in a timely manner. If you are absent, arrange to get a copy of someone’s notes. 

SEMESTER TESTS These tests are cumulative - they will cover everything up to the test.  To be successful, study your notes and correct your old tests/quizzes.  Take advantage of tutoring throughout the entire semester rather than trying to cram at the end!  

LATE WORK –At the discretion of the teacher.

The teacher reserves the right to change the syllabus at any time if necessary.
