PARENT GUIDE W/ EXTRA PRACTICE

Welcome to the Foundations for Algebra Parent Guide. The purpose of this guide is to assist you should your child need help with homework or the ideas in the course. We believe all students can be successful in mathematics as long as they are willing to work and ask for help when they need it. We encourage you to contact your child’s teacher if your student has additional questions that this guide does not answer.   Read More...
