THE DISTRICT OFFICE SUMMER HOURS ARE
MONDAY - THURSDAY 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Core Connections 1
Instructor: Ms. Kayla Hayes   
Welcome! In this course, students will learn to use new models and methods to think about problems as well as solve them. Students will be developing powerful mathematical tools and learning new ways of thinking about and investigating situations. They will be making connections, discovering relationships, figuring out what strategies can be used to solve problems, and explaining their thinking.
Success in math is all about your
mindset. Having a growth mindset and believing you can learn anything if you work hard instead of a fixed mindset where you believe you are either good at math or not, will be important for success. The brain is a muscle that gets stronger at math by practicing math. So this school year, be prepared for your brain to get stronger at math by practicing!

Weekly Update 8-22-16
Welcome to Core Connections 1! I hope that everyone has an amazing first couple days of school. Over the last week we have done some team building exercises in order to work on collaboration, and to establish strategies that make a successful group. In addition to this, we have also gone over our syllabus, which I have attached to the bottom of this page.
All students need a spiral notebook specifically for math; if they do not have one I encouraged them to talk to me in order to get one. Students will also need a pencil, a folder, and to bring their palnner to class everyday.
We use CPM (College Preparatory Math) curriculum. This is a great curriculum that offers a lot of online support. I have included a link under the "Links" category on this page that you can access from home in order to support your child on their math journey.
Last week students received their first homework assignment. This assignment was titled Mathography. This assignment is attached below.
Please e-mail me any time if you have questions or concerns. I will be posting on my Fusion Page weekly with classroom updates, and homework assignments.
