Honors Algebra I

6th Six-Weeks Newsletter


Why did we learning about Quadratics? Check out this clip to see how what your student learned during the fifth-six weeks is applicable in the real-world.

During the six six-weeks grading period Honors Algebra I will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge from over the school year. Algebra will work on two interactive projects, review for the EOC, incorporate district enrichment problems, extended curriculum, semester review, and semester exams.

Reminder: All students have access to their online textbook and an interactive edition with additional practice problems. Directions to accessing online textbook are posted on Google Classroom as well as sent out in prior parent emails. If you need a copy, ask your student to open their Google Classroom page.

Pacing Calendar

Pacing Calendars are always subject to change based on student needs.

EOC and Semester Exams

About one week before the EOC (End of Course assessment) and the semester exams, students will begin to review concepts in class. For both the EOC and semester exam, students will be provided with a graphing calculator and the Algebra I STAAR Reference Chart. The EOC does not replace the semester exam. Students will take both the EOC and the semester exam.

7th Grade Students will NOT take the 7th grade STAAR. ALL Algebra students will take the Algebra EOC.

Interactive Math Glossary

Interactive Math Glossary is now available in the iTunes app store. The glossary helps students explore and understand mathematics vocabulary used in the grades K–8 Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Each glossary term is displayed in a four-quadrant Frayer Model.
