Welcome to the Math Department!


Our math department is hard at work to make the transition to this new alternative learning format. Please stay tuned for links to upcoming lessons and learning opportunities. In the meantime, staff members can be reached at the following email addresses:

*Katie Petry:   Katie.Petry@k12.sd.us

*Math Department Head; Algebra I, Honors Algebra I, Psychology

At the beginning of this week, everyone was mailed a big envelope containing your Algebra folder and/or notebook from class (if they were left in the classroom), as well as some make-up assignments, your first missing quiz and test (if applicable), and a couple letters providing more detailed information about the coming weeks. They were sent to the PO Box listed on your Infinite Campus file so be sure to check that in the coming days.

All of our class files are also being uploaded as PDFs onto Infinite Campus. You are able to resubmit PDF documents with your work and/or may upload a new attachment to share your thoughts (pro tip: if you want to submit photos of your math, use the Notes app on your phone to convert them into a PDF and save data). Contact the high school if you need help accessing Infinite Campus: (605)856-3503.

Email me with any questions or concerns (or just to say hi!). Check here again around Easter for access to our Google Classroom for upcoming new material and assignments. I love and miss you all SO much! 

Best Times to Reach Ms. Petry
9 AM - 12 PM and 1 - 3:30 PM Mon:   Live Zoom Meeting
11 AM - 12 PM Tues/Wed/Thurs:   Live 1:1 Zoom Help Sessions (by appointment)

*I am also hosting live Zoom meetings 10 AM - 12 PM and 1 - 3:30 PM on Fridays for my Psychology class--if you need immediate help/feedback on something, hop on their meeting and see if I'm free! 

P.S. The website we were tracking the Coronavirus on is back up! Click the link here if you want to see our original tracking website, or here if you want to follow trends on a new website that's updated more regularly (and can isolate South Dakota cases more easily). What different variables can you track? Record the data points in a table for a few days then try plotting it out on a graph. What's the slope (rate of change)? Any other interesting patterns?

Assignments will be posted to Infinite Campus, as well as distributed in packets according to your internet access. This includes make-up work and new assignments. We will continue learning about circles, and then move into 3-D shapes soon. A more robust list of our topics will be available on Infinite Campus.

Be prepared to begin working on new material starting 4/5/20. Please reach out to me with any concerns or questions.

Honors Geometry:

We will continue using Google Classroom. I know all of you have access to this, but if you would prefer packets, you are more than welcome to let me know. Please contact me with any concerns or questions.

Statistics:

We will continue using Google Classroom. I know that the situation is not ideal, but we will do our best to continue with stats methods, etc.
