Students going into Algebra 1
Attention students going into Algebra 1, you have been assigned a series of exercises in:ASSISTmentsLog in instructions can be found using the link in the left hand borderaccess codes can be found on the wiki home page
After logging in and enrolling in your classes, you will see list of assignments that you must complete during the summer months. Some assignments are "Skill Builder" which allows you to attain mastery (thus complete) if you answer three consecutive questions correct without using any hints. Other assignments will require you to answer all of the questions in the assignment. Your classroom teacher will analyze your individual results and based on your effort to complete all of the assignments as well as your success rate on the assignments you will be given a grade for the summer enrichment in the first marking period.

You may also enroll in the "Just for fun" class listed is assistments - in this class the assignments consist of games and puzzies on the web that you can enjoy and you will not be graded on these assignments.



WEBSITES, TUTORIALS AND VIDEO'S FOR ALGEBRA 1
Below you will find some additional enrichment resources, your time and effort to explore and utilize these resources is a valuable step in preparing you for success on the assigned summer exercises as well as enhances the probability of your overall future success in this course next year.
Please wait until each of the video's load!
