Supplies (those specific to Mathematics are marked with *)

A great ASK Attitude for SUCCESS

*A 1-inch binder OR a Pocket Folder WITH 3-hole prongs  (specifically for Math rather than for multiple classes)

*1 five-subject spiral-bound notebook with a minimum of 150 pages of paper (just for Math)

*A basic operation calculator (does NOT need to be trigonometry or graphing and should not cost more than $10 at full price)

*1 graph paper notebook for geometry activities throughout the year

*1 package 3x5 cards (plain or lined)

1 package of 2x2 or 3x3 post-its OR mini-tabs

 

The following will be used in all of your classes and personal organization including Math: 

AGENDA or homework planner

1 yellow highlighter, 1 blue highlighter, 1 pink highlighter (layering colors will give us 6 colors)

1 package of theme/loose leaf paper.

1 or 2 blue or black pens

1 red pen for correcting your work at least 2 pencils (and a personal sharpener if needed)

1 package of colored pencils (8 to 12 colors is sufficient for math.  It is perfectly fine to use the same set as you will use in other courses.)

A standard ruler (if it has holes, it can easily be stored in the 1 inch binder)

1 Flash drive of at least 8GB ( good for all classes so you don’t need to get an additional flash drive next year)

White-out tape

Scissors

Glue stick

Backpack and supply pouch/pencil box

Lock for your locker

Lunchbox

WATER bottle (no other beverages allowed inside learning spaces by scholars)

 

TEACHER WISH LIST: 

 

Each class project manager will provide additional materials needed based on the subject. 

 

Fundamental Connections specific request of ALL scholars (campus wide)

1-2 reams of copy paper

1 container of bleach wipes

1 bottle of hand sanitizer

1- 2 boxes Kleenex

Package of Dry-Erase markers  (NOT SHARPIES)

 

Note:  during the year, as projects are determined based on scholars’ research and interest, there will be additional items required.  I will give you as much prep-time as possible for those items.
