My name is Michael Wright and I am excited to have you (or your child) in my class here at El Camino High School! I am new to the school this year after teaching at Roosevelt Middle School (in San Francisco) as well as in Dixon and Davis in the past. I graduated from UC Davis with a B.A. in Mathematics and then I received my teaching credential in Secondary Mathematics at San Francisco State University.
We have a great year ahead of us! Algebra, along with writing skills, is the key to obtaining a high school degree and admittance into college. Whether you are in my Algebra I or Algebra II class, my goals for teaching are to always design lessons that promote student learning through discourse, to guide the lesson with facilitated group work and class discussion, and to summarize the lesson to bring out students' insights while mitigating possible misconceptions.
If you lose your copy of the syllabus that contains my classroom expectations and procedures, there is another copy in this schoolloop website.
While you can access your grades here, most of the homework can be found on MathXL at the following address: http://mathxlforschool.com/home_school.htm
