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 27, John Paul 21, Sydney 19, and Noah 17. 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!

Algebra 1 syllabus

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, systems of equations, and factoring to name a few.  The curriculum has an honors component that will be used for enrichment and will be required for homework some of the time.  In class each week, students can expect to begin with a morning and/or mental math activity.  The past week’s material is reviewed prior to taking a weekly quiz/test.  New material is taught with time to practice this together in class.  Weekly homework will be assigned.

Homework Due 2-22-18
