I am looking forward to this school year at Licking Heights High School. I am a graduate of Kent State University with a B.S.Ed. in Integrated Mathematics and recently moved to Columbus from the Akron area. This year I am looking forward to getting to know my students and their families! I hope you are as excited as I am!
Algebra 1 - Algebra I is a full year curriculum and prepares students for Geometry. This course helps students solve problems both critically and analytically. Specifically covered concepts begin with a brief review of material from Math 8, leading to a more in-depth look at the advanced world of set theory, irrational numbers, factoring, the solution of equalities and inequalities, quadratic equations, and polynomials and exponents. Emphasis is placed upon strengthening the students’ approach to real world problem solving and his or her ability to retain information.
Geometry - This study of Euclidean geometry is designed to organize the apparent laws of the two- and three dimensional world into a system allowing the study and proof of other not-so-apparent relationships. Emphasis is placed upon the application of logic to problem solving, proofs, and the use of formulas. Scientific calculator is required.
Algebra 3 - This course extends algebraic concepts. This course will include a deeper analysis of polynomials, rational and radical equations and inequalities, exponential, logarithmic functions, matrices and trigonometry using the unit circle.
