GEOMETRY SUPPLIES:
  1. 3 hole-punched LOOSE LEAF Graphing Paper (no bindings - I will periodically collect homework and classwork, so I need you to be able to give me papers quickly).
  2. A binder for said graph paper (it doesn't have to be only math, but it needs to be organized).
  3. Dividers for math binder (you can make your own with cardboard if you'd like).
  4. Page Protector for your Homework Sign Off Sheet (only need one page protector)
  5. Pencils (required on all tests)
  6. Black or Blue Pens
  7. Red Pens (for grading, will be a daily necessity)
  8. 1/2 ruler (or whole, but it’s easier to store in a bag) - for use as straight edge and measurement
  9. Metal Compass with thumb wheel (Mr. Heasly, a co-worker explains in detail why this is a much better option than the graduation arc compasses and shows pictures in the .pdf document attached at the end of this list).  We will use these in one of our early units, and they are essential.  A poor compass stacks the deck against a student.  Please, please, please plan ahead and buy a THUMBWHEEL COMPASS from a retail chain or amazon.com.  Here is a link to a "Thumbwheel Compass" search on Amazon.com (click there to buy or just go to a store!).

  10. Protractor (measures angles, and looks like a semi-circle with the middle carved out.)
  11. My recommended calculator is the TI-30X IIS and it retails for $15 or so.  We will be using my class set of the TI Nspire graphing calculators so there really won't be a need for one at home.  If you wish to purchase an Nspire, expect to pay about $150.
  12. And finally the video that helps you remember how to spell my name and get to my website:

FINANCIAL ALGEBRA SUPPLIES:
  1. 3 hole-punched LOOSE LEAF Graphing Paper (no bindings - I will periodically collect homework and classwork, so I need you to be able to give me papers quickly).
  2. A binder for said graph paper (it doesn't have to be only math, but it needs to be organized).
  3. Dividers for math binder (you can make your own with cardboard if you'd like).
  4. Page Protector for your Homework Sign Off Sheet (only need one page protector)
  5. Pencils (required on all tests)
  6. Black or Blue Pens
  7. Red Pens (for grading, will be a daily necessity)
  8. 1/2 ruler (or whole, but its easier to store in a bag) - for use as straight edge and measurement
  9. Calculator Recommendation: although not necessary, it may be helpful to purchase an easy to use financial calculator.  Financial calculations are very difficult, and often require us to use Microsoft Excel in class.  If you think you need an extra boost in the class, I recommend the TI BA II Plus financial calculator.  The calculator is available at major retailers, and is selling for $35 at the staples on Front Street.  Also, most of the TI-8X series has the ability to do financial functions, although I admittedly don't know exactly how to use them.  If you feel confident with excel, or your comfortable using the class set of TI-Nspires, and you don't struggle to finish homework in class, you won't even need to purchase a calculator.  If you wish to purchase an Nspire, expect to pay about $150.
