Susan Hodges

Welcome to Algebra 1!


Hi students! My name is Susan Hodges and I am excited about our school year together! I am married and am a mother of four: Daniel 28, John Paul 22, Sydney 20, and Noah 18. I have a degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Tennessee, but I absolutely love teaching math! Please bring a curiosity, diligent work ethic, and great attitude and you will do well in my class! We will move quickly so be prepared for class!  These concepts can be challenging, especially in graphing, so come with an excitement about learning new ways to solve problems!  I look forward to getting to know you and our class together!


Dear Algebra1 students,

Students need to review math skills before class begins.  A great website is  Click on Parents at the top of the page, go to the Parent Resources box at the bottom of the page, then select one of the options on the left side.

Students in this course will learn the foundations of algebra.  They will use the mathematical operation skills that they have acquired in prior courses to use formulas, solve and graph equations.  This course covers topics such as mathematical properties, order of operations, absolute value, slope, graphing lines, system equations.


Homework: Due on November 29:

1.Review DVD if necessary

2.Complete 14B and 14D…not C, E, or F

3. Be ready for Test 14 individually
