It is recommended that students have a binder, loose leaf, pencils and erasers. Numerous handouts will be given and a binder provides students a
chance to remain organized. Tests will only be graded if they are completed in pencil, so students should have plenty! Please be sure to also have a graphing calculator with you daily!
Tests and Quizzes:
- Tests and quizzes will be announced at least two days in advance and will be written on the board.
