Summer Assignment

The summer enrichment packet is optional but is highly recommended as a self-diagnostic tool. You should at least look through it and make sure you can do all the problems. That being said, I don't plan to collect it. The course is fast-paced, so if you are not comfortable with anything in the packet, you should definitely review that material before the school year begins. Have a great rest of the summer!

You may want a notebook for notes and practice problems that you will be doing in class and for homework. This can be anything that is comfortable for you - spiral-bound, loose-leaf with binder, composition book, lined or unlined, reusable notebook (eg. I love my Rocketbook), or whatever else will keep you organized.

Please purchase a 9.75" x 7.5" composition book - either wide-ruled or college ruled (not graph paper) for your daily check-ins and lab work which will be separate from the notebook in which you take notes and do practice problems.

Additionally, you may want a hand-held calculator (graphing or scientific). A Texas Instruments TI-30XS will be provided to you for in-class assessments.
