## ABOUT MRS. OTTS

Hello, I'm Jennifer Otts, Algebra 1 and Liberal Arts Math 1 teacher at Pace High School. This is my fifteenth year teaching, all of which have been spent at Pace High. This will be my eighth year teaching math, and I absolutely love it! I am Math, Social Studies, and ESOL certified, and Reading Endorsed.

#### CLASS INFO

For Algebra 1, instruction will be based in the county-chosen Holt McDougal Algebra 1 textbook. You will have a class copy of the Algebra 1 textbook and a copy to take and leave home for the purposes of homework assignments and assessment preparation. The textbook covers the Florida Math Standards required to be taught to students in Algebra 1 for the purposes of preparing for successful completion of the Algebra 1 EOC.

For Liberal Arts Math 1, we are still waiting for textbooks to come in. In the meantime, we will focus on the Algebra Standards for the class, using a copy of the Algebra 1 textbook that you must bring back and forth with you to and from school. This class is designed to prepare students for successful completion of the Algebra 1 EOC if it has not yet been passed, provide students with a more in-depth knowledge of Algebra 1, and prepare them for taking Geometry the following school year. Although we will be using a textbook, this class is designed to use a variety of instructional methods and practices to provide students with a diverse learning experience.

Below you will see links to informational documents for this class and routine documents you may wish to download and/or print.
