I received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with an Endorsement in Junior High Mathematics from UNL, and a Master of Science in Secondary Education from UNO. I have seventeen years of experience teaching junior high math. This is my fifth year teaching seventh and eighth grade math at SVdP. Before teaching at SVdP, I taught in the Millard Public Schools.
Pre-Algebra - This is a course designed to prepare students for more advanced courses in algebra and geometry. Integer and real number operations, functions, graphing, inequalities and problem solving strategies are emphasized. Sadlier Foundations of Algebra is the textbook we will be using.
Algebra - This course covers basic algebra. Depending on the math ability and placement of the students, they will either cover the entire course, or get a very thorough introduction to the skills and concepts of basic algebra. The textbook, Sadlier Algebra 1, is written for the ninth grade level. Special emphasis is given to polynomial operations, factoring, equations, inequalities and problem solving strategies.
