2020-2021 will be my 45th year teaching math at West.
I am a member of NCTM, MAA, and SCCTM.
My schedule for 2020-2021 is
1st block - Precalculus GT/H
2nd block - Precalculus GT/H
3rd block - Differential Calculus H - BC Calculus AP
4th block - Planning
Here is a list of the material you will need for Precalculus and Differential Calculus.
1 Composition Notebook (wide rule, college rule, or graph) with 100 sheets.
Colored pens or pencils for taking notes in your Composition Notebook. This notebook will become your Interactive Notebook.
Notebook paper for homework.
You may want a 3-ring notebook or folder to organize handouts from class and your homework.
You may also want a graphing calculator (preferably the TI-Nspire II CX CAS) for use at home. You could work with Desmos and/or Geogebra on your computer at home. We will have a class set of TI-Nspire CX CAS to use in the classroom but it is very helpful to be able to work on problems at home too.
