Instructor: Mrs. Lindsay Deibler-Wallace, LCDS faculty
- Full year of Algebra I and Honors Geometry with final grades of B or higher
- For students entering grades: 9-12
- June 21 to July 23, 2021
- 8 AM to 12:00 PM each day.
Vodcasts will be assigned as daily homework in addition to some practice problems on corresponding worksheets. Expect 1-1.5 hours of homework each evening. The final grade will be based on comprehensive weekly assessments on 2-3 units, laboratory activities, and a final exam.
