Welcome to Algebra and Geometry!

Dear Students and Parents, 

This is our last week of Distance Learning!  See you for our Geometry class and our Algebra class, at the regular times.  No Office Hours this week!   Well done for all of you who handed in your COVID-19 Assignments!

We are  in the Phase 4 learning model called the Virtual Schoolhouse.  During this phase, specific time is set aside for our classes to meet via Distance Learning!   

Geometry will meet on Tuesdays from 8:30 - 10:00.
Algebra 1 and Pre-Algebra 1 will meet on Wednesdays from 10:00 - 11:30.  This week, on June 3, Algebra and Pre-AP Algebra will meet  during office hours time on Thursday, June 4, at 12:00 pm instead!

I will be posting a Geometry Challenge on Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. in three places:  Here (on the Files and Documents link at the upper left), on our Google Classroom Site, and attached to an email sent to your PWCS student email.  You will need a pencil, paper, calculator, and a connection to the internet.   You will  also get an invitation to join a zoom class session in two ways: via the Google Classroom and via an email sent to your PWCS student email.  You will have a half-hour on your own to work the Challenge, then we will connect at 9:00 on zoom to go over the Challenge and work it through together.   

I will be posting an Algebra 1/ Pre-AP Algebra 1 Challenge on Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. in three places:  Here (on the Files and Documents link at the upper left), on our Google Classroom Site, and attached to an email sent to your PWCS student email.  You will need a pencil, paper, graph paper, calculator, and a connection to the internet.   You will  also get an invitation to join a zoom class session in two ways: via the Google Classroom and via an email sent to your PWCS student email.  You will have a half-hour on your own to work the Challenge, then we will connect on zoom at 10:30 to go over the Challenge and work it through together.


In addition, I will maintain office hours on-line on Thursdays, from 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm.

Perhaps you were wondering which Standards of Learning we have covered already this school year up until March 13.  If so, go to the link on the upper left called "Files and Documents" and open the documents you find there, one for both Algebra 1 and PreAP Algebra 1 and the other for Geometry.  I think you will agree that we have really accomplished a lot!   The units yet to do, in Algebra, are factoring (which we were just starting), quadratics, and radicals.  The units yet to do in Geometry are 2D and 3D figures, transformations and tessellations.  

To access lots of review material go to our www.classroom.google.com    .   If you have any trouble getting on to our google classroom site, please email me at schoenhd@pwcs.edu .  Also see the resources on the Useful Links page (upper right).    A good place to keep your skills up is by doing the quizzes you will find at  education.jlab.org/solquiz  .  I recommend doing  the 10-question quizzes and emailing me the results at schoenhd@pwcs.edu .   

Take care!   Stay in touch!     Dr. Schoenburg
