Mrs. Sandra Brown
Hello! This year will be my 16th within the Greater Egg Harbor Regional High School District.
This year at Cedar Creek I will be teaching Algebra 2 with Miss Tomasello and will also be teaching Pre-Calculus and AP Calculus BC.
Welcome to the 2019 - 2020 school year!
What materials will you need for class?
I give out a lot of handouts/worksheets, so you may wish to have a binder or a folder. You will definitely need pencils/erasers. If you like to color-code, I recommend highlighters or colored pens.
Will you need to use a calculator?
Yes :) We will use calculators to perform arithmetic as well as to make and analyze graphs. In Algebra 2 and in Pre-Calculus, the calculator I will be using is the TI-84. In AP Calculus BC I use the TI Nspire CAS because is has many very helpful features and is allowed for use on the AP Exam.
Students will never need to use their phones while in math class - phones are to be kept away at all times.
Math is often challenging enough for students to master - the temptation of focusing on a phone instead of on math is often overwhelming for many students. Teachers and parents need to work together to help ensure that students understand when phone usage is appropriate and when it isn't. Please help your son/daughter (and me) by reinforcing that phone usage while in class is not OK. I can not take a phone away from a student, even if I can see that the temptation to be on it is causing his/her education to suffer... all I can do is ask that it gets put away. Many parents choose to disable certian features on their son/daughter's phone during school hours - please consider this option, it could really make a difference! If an emergency arises and phone contact with your son/daughter becomes necessary while they are in class, we have desktop phones in each classroom and office that can be utilized. I want your son/daughter to be safe, happy, and successful! Let's work together to make sure that this happens.
