Does my child need to purchase a graphing calculator?
Over the next four years of mathematics, students will be engaging in all forms of equations and their graphs. Although a Texas Instruments (TI-83 or TI-84) graphing calculator is recommended, it is not mandatory for their freshman year. With the implementation of Chromebooks, students also use the online graphing tool of Desmos.
What course should my son or daughter be taking his or her freshman year?
The typical freshman class is Algebra 1, although some students may find themselves a little more advanced and may be in a Geometry or Honors Geometry class. If your child struggles in math, the department also offer a double-blocked Algebra 1 class where there is more one-on-one teacher student learning.
Where can my son or daughter get extra help if he or she is struggling?
An abundant amount of math extra help is available here at Southview. Math tutoring is available in the library every period every other day throughout the entire school year. And, our National Honors Society students volunteer their time every period of every day in the library as well. The entire math department faculty is eager and willing to help students before or after school if your child does not have a free period.
