About Steve


Bio

I am a recently retired teacher with 38 years of experience in teaching mathematics and physics. I have taught all mathematics courses in high school including AP Calculus and AP Statistics. I have also taught at community colleges as well as universities. I have served on the State of Michigan Mathematics High School Content Expectations committee and I was part of the writing team for the State of Michigan Content Expectations.

I am a recently retired teacher with 38 years of experience in teaching mathematics and physics. I have taught all mathematics courses in high school including AP Calculus and AP Statistics. I have also taught at community colleges as well as universities. I have served on the State of Michigan Mathematics High School Content Expectations committee and I was part of the writing team for the State of Michigan Content Expectations. During the past 6 summers, I have been asked by the state of Michigan to write MEAP questions for middle school, and for the past 12 years, I have served on the Content Review committee for MEAP and MME. When I tutor a student, I address the student's needs and help them understand the mathematics. I am quite knowledgeable of the TI calculators and have demonstrated applications of the calculators at teacher conferences. I try to make it fun and show where the math is used in real life and where it was developed. I hope that I can serve you as well as I have served others in the past.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra I is not only a theoretical tool for analyzing and describing mathematical relationships, it is also a powerful tool for the mathematical modeling and solving of real-world problems. These problems can be found all around us: the workplace, the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It is expected that students entering Algebra are able to recognize and solve mathematical and real-world problems involving linear relationships and to make sense of and move fluently among the graphic, numeric, symbolic, and verbal representations of these patterns. Algebra builds on this increasingly generalized approach to the study of functions and representations by broadening the study of linear relationships to include; systems of equations with three unknowns, formalized function notation, and the development of bivariate data analysis topics such as linear regression and correlation. In addition, their knowledge of exponential and quadratic function families is extended and deepened with the inclusion of topics such as, rules of exponentiation (including rational exponents), and use of standard and vertex forms for quadratic equations. Students will also develop their knowledge of power (including roots, cubics, and quartics) and polynomial patterns of change and the applications they model. I have taught Algebra 1 and 2 for 40 years.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

The goal of Algebra II is to build upon the concepts taught in Algebra I and Geometry while adding new concepts to the students’ repertoire of mathematics. In Algebra I, students studied the concept of functions in various forms such as linear, quadratic, polynomial, and exponential. In Algebra II, students continue the study of exponential and logarithmic functions and further enlarge their catalog of function families. The topic of conic sections fuses algebra with geometry. Students will also extend their knowledge of sequences and iteration as well as univariate statistical applications. It is also the goal of this model to help students see the connections in the mathematics that they have already learned. I have taught Algebra II for over 40 years.
Geometry,

Geometry

The study of Geometry offers students the opportunity to develop skill in reasoning and formal proof. Additionally, it helps students to describe, analyze and recognize the underlying beauty in the structures that compose our World. Geometric thinking is a powerful tool for understanding and solving both mathematically beyond algebra, including analytical and spatial reasoning. Students will use techniques of ancient mathematicians as well as calculator and computer techniques for solving problems. I have taught geometry for over 40 years in High School and College and have written test question for the SAT.
