Welcome to Pre-Algebra A.

This year you will strengthen your math skills and use problem solving skills for everyday learning.
  • Every day when you enter the classroom you will be responsible for the daily bell ringer. Every day you are responsible for coming in to class QUIETLY, picking up your binder, assigned net book, and completing the daily bell ringer. You will receive points for these bell ringers. If you are out of class for any reason you are responsible for doing that day's bell ringer on your own.
