Hello! I am Stowe Beecher the Math Teacher! I graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology in the spring of 2010 with a Masters Degree in Secondary Education for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students with a focus in mathematics. My Bachelor’s degree is in Computational Mathematics. I joined Terrier Nation in the fall that year  and have been here ever since.  I teach Middle School and High School mathematics. I love math and want the student’s to love it too.

Many of my classes use Google Classroom. If you are a parent of one of my students feel free to check Google Classroom to see if they have any missing assignments.

I am involved in many activities on campus and here is a list of some:

  • Middle School Math Team: 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017
  • Class Sponsor for the class of: 2013, 2016, 2017
  • Terrier World School Store Founder
  • JA World Co-Coordinator
  • Deaf Teen America Chaperone 2017
  • Shop Steward for the teacher union

Feel free to contact me for further information on any of these topics or any math questions or if you just want to chat!

Classes:

Consumer Math

This one year class emphasizes several major real world topics: earning money, buying food and clothes, budgeting money, riding public transportation, and cooking.  Students will learn about banking and budgeting to support independent living skills as well as learn how to navigate the city bus. Some skills may overlap with other classes students are in .

As a result of successfully completing this course,  the student should be able to:

  • Prepare a budget
  • Use sales tax to determine the total price
  • Use decimal, percent, and fractions in daily life.
  • Read a recipe, plan a grocery list, and use cooking utensils to cook a recipe
  • Use a ruler with fractions.
  • Read a map
  • Read a bus schedule

Daily participation will be factored into your grade: I.E. -Did you bring a fully charged iPad? Participated in the daily activity? on task?

If you miss class due to mainstream or work experience you will not be required to make it up.

Consumer Math 2nd Syllabus

Intergrated Math 2

Pearson Integrated High School Mathematics 2  is designed to further explore the principles introduced in Math 1. Students will expand their knowledge of linear, exponential, and quadratic functions to polynomials, rationals, and trigonometric functions.  Students will also extend their previous work with triangles and quadrilaterals and experiences with data and statistics. Students will be given school ipads to access the textbook, for note taking, and to submit homework electronically through Google Classroom and mathxlforschool.

As a result of successfully completing this course,  the student should be able to:

  • Prove theorems about triangles
  • Prove theorems about quadrilaterals
  • Form proportions based on known lengths of corresponding sides
  • Use Pythagorean Theorem
  • Use trigonometric ratios
  • Examine parts of a circle and use them to relate arcs and angles
  • Use formulas to find surface area and volume of a solid
  • Model randomness and make fair decisions

Integrated math 2 syllabus

High School and Beyond

In this course students will create a High School & Beyond portfolio consisting of a collection of students’ application materials, important documents, students’ best work,and  local resources. Throughout the school year, the students will learn a variety of skills to collect necessary materials for the portfolio such as creating a resume, writing a cover letter, doing community service and preparing for life outside high school.

Consumer Math 6th Syllabus

This class is designed to help students improve their typing skills, improve their Google Apps knowledge, and introduce them to coding and robotics. This class is 4th, 5th, 6th grade elementary students that have class for 45 min on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Friday B days.

Intermediate Math 2

This class will use an ipad with electronic access to the curriculum. All homework will be submitted using Google Classroom. The class covers the following units: Ratios and Proportional Relationships, The Number System, Expressions and Equations, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability.

As a result of successfully completing this course,  the student should be able to:

  • Analyze proportional relationships and solve real world problems
  • Add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers
  • Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions
  • Solve real-life problems using algebraic expressions and equations
