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.
