Advanced Math & Algebra

Advanced math classes prepare students for jobs and for college. Students are given more responsibility for their learning while being guided by their teacher. They develop a deeper understanding of mathematical practices and learn how to apply those practices to the real world.

Students in Advanced math classes are expected to complete their homework assignments on time, study for tests and quizzes, and be active participants in class discussions and activities. More rigorous assignments are given.

Parents can assist their children by providing an appropriate place and time to complete homework and study. Utilize the resources at www.bigideasmath.com.
