Does my student have a math book? Where can I find it?
We have two. Our offical math book is online at PowerAlgebra, this is a great resource with step-by-step examples and practice. We will also have an interactive note book with examples and definitions that the students build. I allow students to take it home so long as they remember to bring it back to class, as there will be random notebook checks.
Students must use their Math Notebook to practice organized note taking. This book has foldables, with definitions and examples. I have my own copy in our classroom, where students can copy and try to replicate if absent.
A wonderful website to help with struggling concepts is KhanAcademy.org, which has videos, examples, and practice.
