Algebra I Academic: Regular Algebra I class for freshmen. Students should be very fast with math facts and fractions or they will have difficulty in the class. TI-84 calculators are used in class (we have a class set) and students will need either a TI-83+ or TI-84+ to do the homework during the second semester. Students need to do homework every night to practice the necessary skills. Students who do not do well in Algebra I will most likely have a very difficult time in geometry and Algebra 2.
Algebra I Rescue: Algebra class for those freshmen struggling with some basic skills. Students do the same lessons as academic Algebra I but also work on basic math skills and completing their assignments during the second hour.
