ES Math

Essential Skills Math
The primary goal in this class is to ensure that each student ends with 2 complete and passing Essential Skill Tasks from 2 different strands (Algebra, Geometry, or Statistics/Probability). 
We begin by learning how to work on them, then we will begin rotating between the three strands until each student has completed this graduation requirement.  Once each student completes this work, we will begin to learn life skill financial mathematics.  I know I look forward to both parts of this class - helping the students meet this piece towards graduation, and then teaching them some fun and VERY relevant mathematics.
