Welcome!  I am looking forward to our year together in Algebra II.  My name is Dr. Ed Wheeler.  I am married, to Mrs. Ellen who works here at Faith, and have one daughter – a sophomore at USJ.  Typically you will find me on the campus of UT Martin where I am a Professor of Engineering.  This is my third year to teach at the tutorial and I thoroughly enjoy the experience.  For this class, bring a good attitude, willingness to work hard and curiosity.

We will be using the Math-U-See curriculum which includes a Student Text and a Test Book.  Please bring the Student Text with you to class every Tuesday.  Generally we will go straight through the topics, although we will add a few things here and there that are not in the text.  Bring the Test Book the first day of class; I will take them up and keep them during the year, distributing pages as necessary.

In order to succeed, do all your homework.  Keep current with homework so you will not get behind!  I strongly suggest that you work all pages, not just those assigned to be turned in for grading.  Doing a homework page daily as repetition is a key to learning!

Each week I will discuss the topic of the homework for the following week.  I will answer any remaining questions concerning the previous week’s topic.

In preparation for the first day of class, please download, print, and work the Algebra I review below.  It is rather lengthy so start early!  We will review material the first week of class and finish up the review the second week.  You should also brush up on you multiplication, division and radical facts…..for example 4 • 8 = 32, 9 ÷ 3 = 3, and  √16 = 4.  (Multiplication up to 15)

I look forward to meeting each of you on August 15th.
