Welcome to Algebra 3 FALL semester!
*** ANNOUNCEMENTS ***
===========================================================================
Class meets in portable D during 7th period
My email is townbey@tacoma.k12.wa.us
What can you do to get more support?
 There's after school tutoring in portable F. Check for scheduled days and times (TBD)
 Come to class early (or stay late) to ask questions or to make sure your Algebra Journal is updated and that you have all the materials you need
 You can also use Khan Academy, https://www.khanacademy.org/ for additional practice for most skills. Link yourself to my Algebra 3/4 class using the coach code of 22FNKX
Daily Log
============================================================================================================
Module 1  Functions and Their Inverses
We will be doing 3 lessons from Module 4 of MVP2, then we will start Module 1 of MVP3. You will be provided copies of the 3 lessons AND you can find them in the documents section of this website. You will be given a Module 1 booklet when we start module 1. If you lose yours or you want to have it electronically, you can download module 1.
