|The focus of this web site is to
help each student SUCCEED. To that end, this web site
strives to provide the following:
1) a supplemental
classroom instruction/ presentation medium
2) an archive for classroom notes and activities for
students who, for any reason, miss class for one or more days
3) a communications hub for classroom expectations and
policies, homework and projects, quiz and test schedules, etc.
4) links to external on-line resources, such as lesson-by-lesson
self-assessments (a.k.a. "Quik Cheks") available from textbook
publishers, Glencoe (www.glencoe.com)
and Prentice Hall (www.phschool.com),
Students are NOT REQUIRED to use this web site outside of class. The site is
a resource for extended
learning. Just as a student may pursue independent study, extra help
from the classroom teacher or
tutoring and support services, so may they make use of this web.
While not a requirement, students will be encouraged to access the
Math Chamber web,
particularly to catch up on missed assignments and class notes, or avail
themselves of the on-line self-assessments.
Many of the glossary definitions contained herein are derived directly or
indirectly from the Glencoe/McGraw Hill text: "Algebra 1 -

|The MathChamber is not intended to be used
stand-alone or for home-based instruction. One should not expect to simply
surf the slide show and learn. Certain pages are tied directly to
classroom-based lessons and activities, and thus may appear to be out of
context to an "outsider." Students should understand that
success in the classroom is based on participation in classroom
activities, completion of all assigned work, rigorous note-taking and
effective study and organizational skills. The web site is designed
to supplement, not replace, all of these required activities and attributes.
