This is a middle school class designed to prepare students for high school level math classes.  All skills needed will be presented in class.  
Students are allowed to retake up to 2 quizzes and 2 tests per semester, if needed. 

Supplies Needed:
Textbook: all instructional material will be provided by the teacher
3 Ring Binder (at least 1")
Color Pencils (at least 3 different colors)
(optional) Scientific Calculator (TI-83 or TI-84)

*This calculator is the same one used in the high school classes and is approved for use on the SAT test.  We will be learning the basics of how to use this calculator for different concepts in order to prepare the students for high school.  It does cost quite a bit, but sometimes you can find them used on Ebay.  We will begin using them in Chapter 3. (I have a class set so it is optional for a student to have their own.)
