RC Algebra 1 Welcome
Daniel Hendrickson graduated from Auburn University in 1982 with a BSME in Mechanical Engineering. Daniel Hendrickson worked in the professional world for twenty one years before he began his teaching career. Daniel Hendrickson received his Master's in Education in 2004 from Wilmington University, passing the praxis in both Math and Science and he began teaching career at this time.
Algebra 1 is going to be both challenging and fun. Please come into Mr. Hendrickson's class with a good attitude and ready to learn. The expectations are high and the rewards are worth the time and effort put forth into passing the class and achieving mastery of the class.
Solving and simplifying are just some of the work that we will complete in this math class. Using variables, graphing, equations, manipulation of data to be able to predict outcomes or solve real world problems is what makes Algebra 1 fun, exciting and very rewarding.
This Algebra 1 math class will prepare you for your future math classes that you will take in high school and lay the foundation of even bigger and more challenging math for your future.
