    I hope you are ready for a challenge everyday in my classroom. I hate to waste good tax dollars with goofing off! I will push you everyday in preparation for graduation and success in college! 
    It is very important that you learn to back your work up!  I enforce the ability to express your mathematics verbally (what is the question asking you to do), numerically (back your work up with a table), graphically (be able to show an appropriate graph in a given domain/range), and analytically (show your work algebraically!!!).  One of the biggest hookups kids have with math, is that they cannot "explain" or connect why they do something!
