- Teacher Profile

Stephanie Frederick has a B.S. Ed. Degree from Texas State University (formerly Southwest Texas State University) with teaching credentials in mathematics and psychology. She taught in Klein ISD for 7 years, and then remained home to be a homemaker and a mom, homeschooling in the early years. Stephanie has taught in the PREP program since 2002. She also teaches private piano lessons.

She and her husband, Dale, a retired public school teacher, have 4 sons: Jared is married to Hadriane, raising two young sons and proudly serving in the USAF. Joel married Anna in November, Jacob married Brenna in February, and John will marry Allison in August. The Fredericks have gained many daughters this past year! [Frederick children are graduates of LSU, TAMU, UNC-Chapel Hill, and UTSA, with graduate degrees from Gordon Conwell Reformed Seminary, UH: Bauer School of Business and UTSA: Statistics.]

Stephanie and Dale Frederick attend Cypress Bible Church and are very involved with Community Bible Study (CBS).

Willing to work with students outside of class at tutoring sessions, Mrs. Frederick especially enjoys seeing students have a “lightbulb” moment of understanding in her classes. “All students are capable of learning, no matter their learning style.” She strives to see each student have success in doing their very best academically, and growing as a person, to love God and to love others.

**NOTE: THIS IS A TWO DAY CLASS WHICH MEETS BOTH MONDAY AND WEDNESDAY.(**NOTE: Class times are NOT necessarily the same for the 2 class days.)

This class is appropriate for students who have * successfully* completed a year of Pre-Algebra and have strong problem-solving skills. Class time will be spent teaching algebra concepts and applications. Students must be able to take detailed notes (quickly) from the board and copy examples worked in class to review at home. Students will use the textbook as a resource for reference, daily homework assignments, and test review.

Topics covered:

- the number system
- solving equations; single-step and multi-step; single/multi variable
- ratios and proportions
- solving and graphing linear equations
- solving and graphing linear systems of equations
- solving and graphing linear inequalities
- solving and graphing linear systems of inequalities
- polynomials and factoring
- quadratic equations
- exponential and radical equations
- study skills and organization, in order to be a more independent learner
- test-taking techniques

Often, we will apply concepts to real life situations. Students will be expected to complete word problems. Graphing will be integrated into the teaching.

Withdrawal after September 30th will result in a drop fee of 3 month’s tuition. Withdrawal after December 15th will require payment of full tuition for the remainder of the school year.
