Margo Gore — Mathematics

Common Core Math 1, Common Core Math 3, and Pre-Calculus

I’m thrilled to be joining the staff at MMACHS in the 2015-2016 school year.  For the last 8 years I’ve been working in the West Ada School District (formerly Joint School District No. 2) as both a homebound teacher and online math teacher.

This year I’ll be teaching Math 1, Math 3 and Pre-Calculus, which is an NNU concurrent credit class.  Students and parents can find course syllabi, assignment information, and calendar on Edmodo.  Grade information can be found on PowerSchool.

My educational philosophy:

  • Learning is more meaningful when we are active participants​
  • It’s okay to struggle to learn something​
  • Things that we relate to other areas in life are recalled more easily​
  • Everyone has room for improvement​
  • Everyone can learn from seeing how other people solve problems​
  • Explaining how you did a problem solidifies your own understanding​
  • Determination and perseverance are essential to success​
  • The formal study of mathematics teaches reasoning skills

I look forward to a fun and productive year!
