Hello students and parents! I am new this year to Licking Heights but this is my 12th year teaching high school level mathematics. I love working with teenagers and showing them that math is not hard. The best part of my job is encouraging kids to persevere through a challenging problem and watching the look of pride on their faces when they finally solve it. Now that's applicable to everyone's life! When I'm not teaching I enjoy spending time with my 9 year old daughter and our yellow lab.
Algebra 1 is the first of four required courses to graduate. We will explore the following types of functions: linear, quadratic, exponential, polynomial, radical, and rational. Get ready to simplify, evaluate, solve, and graph!
Geometry is the second required course. We will explore angle relationships, logic, triangles, quadrilaterals, trigonometry, transformations, and probability. Get ready to apply your algebra skills to find angles and sides of shapes!
