8th Grade Math - Fulfills the math requirement for that grade level. Introduces and reinforces some elements of both Algebra and Geometry. Example topics include slope, intercepts, volume, surface area, Pythagorean Theorem, etc.
Algebra I - Fulfills the math requirement for either 8th grade (advanced) or 9th grade (on grade level). Introduces and reinforces Algebraic concepts. Example topics include slope, intercepts, systems of equations, inequalities, quadratic equations, graphs, and much more.
Geometry and Geometry (Honors) - Fulfills the math requirement for either 9th grade (advanced) or 10th grade (on grade level). Introduces and reinforces Geometric concepts. Example topics include measures of angles, Pythagorean Theorem, properties of polygons, graphs, and much more.

Hello, WILDCATS!!!

All students will be receiving assignments through Google Classroom. If you work better on paper, send me an email and I will print a hard copy for you.

We are going to be flexible this year. All this is new to most of us. We will show each other grace quite often. 

Let's work together to make 2021-2022 a great school year!!

Unit Agendas:

Blank Teacher

My name is Latrica Sutton. This is my seventh year teaching Math to students at Brookeland ISD, but my twelfth year in education. It is an honor to be here! Currently, I teach 8th grade Math, Algebra I, and Geometry. 

Sharing my love of Math with young people is pure joy for me. I try to fit multiple learning styles and present concepts in a variety of ways. 

After graduating from SFASU with a Social Work degree in 2000, I realized that my heart was with young people. I returned to complete my alternate certification in Mathematics in 2007. With the exception of a three year sabbatical, where I was the primary caretaker for a heart transplant recipient, I've enjoyed every second of teaching.

I look forward to spending this school year with your child and hope that they take away both Math concepts and valuable life lessons!

Conference time: 8th period,  2:31 pm - 3:20 pm

My conference time will also serve as Office Hours for remote learners. 

Information Regarding Graphing Calculators

Each subject that I teach, includes extensive instruction in the use of graphing calculators. Brookeland ISD will make a calculator available to each student during school hours (either through issue or by use of a class set). For the grade levels that I teach, we use TI-84 calculators. These calculators are not just allowed, but are encouraged, to be used on standardized tests and exams. Being open to learning the functions of the calculator could be essential to the success of each student. Please encourage students to pay attention to the calculator instructions and to practice using these skills when possible.

Make-up/Retest/Grading Policy

In the event that a student is absent, make up work will be required. All work will be available in Google Classroom and  the student has three days from the date of return to submit all make up work, regardless of number of days missed. Assignments may be corrected within three days of being returned to bring up grade to a maximum of 70 if failed on the first attempt. Grades are weighted as 60% for test grades and 40% for daily grades. All of these policies are also listed in the Student Handbook.

The staff of Brookeland ISD believes that ALL students can learn.  We believe that our school’s purpose is to educate all students to high levels of academic performance while fostering positive growth in social/emotional behaviors and attitudes.  We accept the responsibility to teach all students in a challenging, meaningful way that allows each child to become a literate, contributing adult.  Brookeland ISD is a center for sound learning, academic discovery, and the pursuit of wisdom through advanced course offerings, high academic standards and aggressive, innovative instruction.  The students of Brookeland ISD will excel and compete academically with any students in the country.
