Teacher: Dimona Levari
Age: 15 & up
Prerequisites: Algebra 1 and preferably also Geometry
Cost: $280 tuition per year, paid in four $70 payments;
$15 copy/supply fee per year, paid in one $15 payment
Cost Details: Includes a workbook and worksheets that supplement the textbook
Text: The main textbook can be purchased used for a very reasonable price online: 1) Algebra 2 by McDougal Littell (cover has picture of runners on a track), ISBN: 9780618595419 or ISBN: 0618595414 2) TI84 PLUS graphing calculator

Description: This class will include the study of the following functions: Linear, Quadratic, Polynomial, Rational, Radical, Exponential, Logarithmic, and Trigonometric. We will also master algebraic skills, trig identities, and proofs and elements of Precalc so that students can place into college math when taking the placement test and score better on the SAT/ACT tests. If time allows we will also study sequences, probability, and statistics but the priority of the class will be the topics that prepare the students for college level classes. Students will sometimes need to "flip" the classroom and study a new topic using a video and then doing the assigned homework. Most of the homework will be done in the workbook. However, there will be a need to supplement from other textbooks (at college level) and worksheets which will drill students so that they master algebraic skills. Students will need to take notes and there are videos produced by the teacher to help when doing homework. The lines are open during the week and both students and parents should feel free to email questions to the teacher. Students will need a TI84 PLUS graphing calculator. Homework expectations: It is important to keep up with due dates so that the class can progress smoothly and cohesively. Tests are assigned as homework. To receive full credit for the work, students might need to complete corrections on their work. The goal is to enjoy learning, avoid stress and anxiety, and learn the material accurately so that when the time comes and students must take a test, they will feel confident and do well.
