    Course Description: Algebra 1-2, Honors course at the Barry Goldwater High School campus begins May 24 and ends July 1, 2021. Class will begin for students at 7:30 am and end at 1:15 pm. This is an "in-person" direct instruction experience on the Barry Goldwater High School campus. Week 1 and Week 2 classes meet Monday through Friday. The remainder of the enrollment session, classes meet Monday through Thursday. This course is a more rigorous approach covered in 5 weeks (25 days) to the topics covered in Algebra 1-2 Honors. We will be going through the material at a substantial pace. Students should be proficient in operations with rational numbers, properties of equality, single transformation equations, and show a willingness to learn the new exciting world of algebra. 

    Course Materials: DVUSD Pathways Summer Course is an "in-person" learning experience.

    • Students are encouraged to bring a sack lunch, as the campus cafeteria will closed for the summer. Lunch from 11-11:30 am.
    • Students are expected to arrive on timewith all materials:
      • Pencil/ Pen (I recommend the G2 Frixion Erasable Pens in black or blue)
      • Erasers
      • 2 inch binder to organize notes/practice
      • Highlighter
    • Highly recommend TI-84 Plus graphing calculator for this class and beyond. I will provide one for each student in-class and we will use it everday!

    Course Expectations: Students are encouraged to ask questions, participate in discussions, and complete assignments daily prior to the end of our class. This is an accelerated course, all students must attend class each day. One day missed is equivalent to 2-4 weeks of class during the school year. Students can only be absent 1 day per semester during the program before being dropped. Any missed time must be made up within 24-48 hours.
