Math B
Students solve for unknown angles in word problems and in diagrams involving complementary and supplementary angles. Students also solve for unknown angles in word problems and in diagrams involving complementary, supplementary, vertical, and adjacent angles.
Science
Students study cell types including prokaryotic and eukaryotic. Students learn the make-up of a cell and their specific functions.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership. I appreciate it and encourage you to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
