Algebra 2 (Phillips)

Algebra 2 will develop topics traditionally taught in second-year algebra, as well as real-world problems including gas laws, force vectors and​ percent markups.  Other topics such as set theory, statistics and​ probability are also covered.  Additionally, we will make applications to​ geometry, physics and chemistry. 

Required Materials: Saxon Algebra 2, only 3rd Edition (textbook, test booklet, answer key), Scientific calculator (Recommended: TI30), Graph paper​

Saxon books are skill level books, not grade level books. Therefore, if you are new to Saxon math, a placement test is highly recommended to ensure proper placement and success for your student.

Geometry (Phillips)

During our study of Geometry we will cover topics such as lines and​
angles, congruence, inequalities, parallel lines, quadrilaterals, area, similarity, right triangles, circles,  and regular polygons. These concepts will be developed through many real-life scenarios and will leave the student with the ability to use Geometry in everyday situations.​

Saxon 7/6 Math (Phillips)

This course is designed for those not quite ready for pre-algebra and is a stepping stone to Pre-algebra.  It introduces functions and coordinate graphing, integers, exponential expressions, and prime factorization.  Students will also learn about the order of operations, number lines, decimal place value, how to find the percent of a number, how to round decimal numbers, attributes of geometric solids, and more.  Each week we will cover 3-4 lessons and tests will be given every 10 lessons.  Text-Saxon 7/6

Required Materials: Saxon 7/6 Student Textbook, Solutions Manual, Tests and Worksheets booklet (fourth edition)

Saxon 6/5 Math (Phillips)

Designed for 5th or 6th graders, Saxon 6/5 will explore concepts such as the order of operations; geometry and measurement; integers; divisibility concepts; ratios; statistics and probability; prime and composite numbers; patterns and sequences; and powers and roots. We will also learn adding/subtracting fractions with a common denominator, multiplying by multiples of 10 and 100, perimeter, simple probability, decimal parts of a meter, reciprocals, volume, square roots, graphing points on a coordinate plane, and more.  Each Tuesday I will teach four lessons from the textbook and these lessons will then be reinforced through the homework assigned that week.  Ample class time will be given to reviewing homework from the previous week and answering questions that may arise from the lessons.

Required Materials: Saxon 6/5 Student Text, Solutions Manual, Tests and Worksheets Booklet (3rd Edition)
