    COURSE SYLLABUS – ALGEBRA 2

                                                                  

    Dear Parent/Guardian,

     

    Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Mrs. Rajpurkar and I will be your child’s Math teacher for this school year. I am excited about teaching your child and look forward to working with you to ensure your child’s success in my class.

    In this class, students will develop insights into mathematical structures and abstraction and learn to think symbolically. Students will use tabular, symbolic, graphic and verbal representations to analyze and understand patterns involving quadratic functions as well as conic sections.

    Making this year successful will require a team effort, in which your child, you and I are the members of the team. You may expect me to clearly communicate goals and be available to answer questions, provide timely feedback, provide instruction, guidance and support to help students reach the goals. I expect students to come prepared to the class, show respect to all people, actively participate in classroom activities, and follow all school rules.  You can contribute to their success in school by helping your child manage his/her time, allowing them to take lead in his/her learning and encourage good classroom behavior.

     

    You may contact me at any time during school hours: (714)569-6300.
