My current teaching assignment: Summit Middle School, Boulder Colorado.
These pages include digital copies of things I hand out in class, as well as homework for the courses. Yes, I still assign homework.
NOTE: As a school, we are switching to Schoology this year (20172018). Students not checking 7 different teacher websites to find assignments? Brilliant! That means that I will no longer update my "school" webpage this year. I will leave stuff posted from last year just in case you're interested in poking around to see what we did.

Algebra 1My school has several "pathways" for students in math. The normal pathway has all students going through Algebra by the end of their 8th grade year. This is the second year of Alg 1; we call it Algebra 1B. Basically, it's all the fun stuff we normally get to second semester except I have almost an entire year to teach it.

GeometryThis is our pre I.B. Geometry class with a focus on proofs. We're using a book published in 1991 (Moise and Downs). Aligning this class with the CCSS has taken quite a bit of work.

ProgrammingReady to learn Python with us? Ready. Set. Go!
Come and learn to program! This introductory course uses the Python language to teach the basics of programming structure and syntax. There are lots of programming languages out there—we’ll use Python because it’s relatively easy and powerful. That’s a good combo. Together we’ll create games and solve problems. All abilities are welcome and encouraged.
