    What about Geometry?

       Geometry is a application of arithmetic and algebra to solve problems.  It was developed 2500 years ago for construction, navigation, music, and art. 
       If you are 'bad at math' you can learn geometry.  If you are 'good at math', you can learn geometry.
       We learn how to collaborate with our peers.  We study logic.  We learn to slow down and think about a problem.  We work hard.  We work quickly while writing down everything that we know about the problem.  We learn to argue correctly and justify our statements with facts.  We are creative.  We learn to find and reference those facts to support our thought.  We get better.

    What about Advanced Quantitative Reasoning?

        In Advanced Quantitative Reasoning, students will develop and apply skills necessary for college, careers, and life. Course content consists primarily of applications of high school mathematics concepts to prepare students to become well-educated and highly informed 21st century citizens. Students will develop and apply reasoning, planning, and communication to make decisions and solve problems in applied situations involving numerical reasoning, probability, statistical analysis, finance, mathematical selection, and modeling with algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and discrete mathematics.


    What about the archery team?

        It is not necessary to be enrolled in an "archery class" (PE, Outdoor Adventures, Wildlife Management) to be on the Archery team.

       Although it takes a great deal of practice to improve your skills, archery is designed to work around your other school, athletic, and work commitments.  We can hone your existing skills or, if you have never touched a bow before, introduce you to a great sport at a competitive level.  

       The archery season starts in early October and runs through May. We have training and practice times on campus in the morning after the bus routes have arrived and after school.  If you find yourself suddenly too busy to make a tournament or a few practices, we will work through it.  This year we will have tournament competitions at Peaster, Brock, Arlington, and at the State level.  ALL equipment will be provided by the school district.  If you would like to purchase your own equipment, check with me first so you have the correct tournament approved gear. Our goal is to safely improve archery skills to compete at the state and national levels.
