Grade 9 Math

Algebra

What we do:

Algebra I is taught using the traditional objectives.  The course is taught at each individual student’s pace to ensure mastery of the course objectives. The classroom is structured to provide students with ample opportunity to practice and demonstrate the content being presented.  Each day the class begins with a Warm-up exercise based on the homework from the previous day.  The class is then presented with the lesson for the current day with a follow on exercise for students to practice and demonstrate.  It is during the practice and demonstration phase that the teacher works with individual students who may be encountering difficulty or need acceleration and a more challenging exercise.
