• Hi Algebra 1!                                                                                 April 6, 2020

    I miss you all and wish that we could go back for one last day in the classroom. I miss seeing each of you every day and warming up the classroom. This is my 12th year teaching and I would have never guessed we would have to move to a virtual classroom. I hope that you all are being safe at home with loved ones and also checking in on your friends. Human connection is very important so please reach out to someone you haven't heard from in a while and see if you can offer a smile and friendship.  I hope to see each of you in a live meeting soon because I miss your smiles and laughs. 

    All of your teachers have been doing their best to educate themselves on how to continue your learning in the virtual world. Algebra 1 is a challenging subject for many students and we will work together to figure out what works best for us.

    Please visit the Ascend Math website and use the login information that was personally sent to you in Remind. The first thing that must be done is the Pre-Assessment. The Ascend program will give you a pre-test to establish your level of understanding. Consider it a starting point. I will be assigning your learning objectives here. You will have a week to complete them before I assign the next set. Make sure to watch the videos and follow all instructions so that you can improve your skills and master your standards. I will be able to see your progress and time spent on each objective. 


    *Ascend Math will go live next week, April 13th to April 17th. This week please finalize all of your work from Week #10 and Week #11. This was work assigned prior to school being dismissed. 

    Here is a Link to a google slides presentation on Ascend Math Login and a second presentation on Ascend Math Objectives 

    Office Hours:   

    Monday through Friday from 1:30pm to 2:30 pm. You can message me on Remind. We can work through problems through text or we can set up a WebEx Virtual meeting if you would prefer that. If this doesn’t always work for you just message me on REMIND and we can find something that works for us. 

    I look forward to this next step in the school year. I’m always here if you need to talk. “See” you soon.

    From Home,
    Mrs. Amaya
