Wildcat Path to Math

Designed by Deb Sechrist









    Wildcats are on the prowl at Locust Grove High School in Henry County, GA.  We are the newest secondary school in the system with a student enrollment of 1,100 and compete in Region 4-AAA.  In the two short years since opening, Wildcats have excelled in their academics, met AYP, competed at State Competitions, received academic and athletic college scholarships, and are graduating their inaugural class of seniors. 

CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2011!!!

My name is Deb Sechrist and this will be my 3rd year teaching mathematics.  I began my teaching career at Luella Middle School and Union Grove Middle School before moving to Locust Grove High School.  I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia (GO DAWGS!)  and am currently working on my Master's Degree from Valdosta State University.  I am a very blessed mother of four children, one grandson, and a granddaughter on the way!  In addition to teaching math, I also coach softball and tennis at the high school.  In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies, going to the beach, and spending time with my family in GA, NC, and FL.

                                                                                        


       WILDCAT MATH PATHS

All of my standard-based classes are inclusion classes with a co-teacher, or academic resource classes in a small group.  All classes are supplemented with Math Support classes. Before and after school tutoring is available at no cost by appointment.  Georgia Performance Standards provide additional mathmatics resource support for students and parents by course.

Math 1 is a freshman level course with 6 units covering Function Families, Algebra, Geometry, Data Analysis/Probability, Statistics, and Coordinate Geometry. Students complete real-life tasks in groups in addition to various skill assessments, and complete the course with a final project of their choosing.

Math 2 is a sophomore level course with 6 units containing containing Quadratic Equations, Right Triangle Trigonometry, Circles and Spheres, Data Analysis/Probability, Piecewise, Inverse, and Exponential Functions, and Finding the Best Model. Students continue to work in groups to complete tasks, are assessed on their skills, and culminate the year with a project.
