    ****** Please understand that these are difficult times for students, parents and teachers.  We are all in this together and we will be learning how best to educate and help you as we procede.  I'm sure we will need to be flexible with our online learning. If you do your part to meet deadlines, then I will be more flexible when we run into issues. Please feel free to email me anytime if you need anything.  I will do my best as a professional to give you the best possible experience I can.  I have been teaching for 30 years at FDHS with great success, but all of this online learning and technology is also very new to me.  I believe if we help each other as much as possible, we can all be successful.*****
     
    Daily Routine:  We will be working approximately 60-90 minutes per day using Canvas Modules.
     
    Login to your Chromebook and access Canvas.  Find Coach Brooks Discrete Math.
