Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!

I'm excited to begin my 20th year of teaching teenagers about math.  This is my 17th year at BOHS.  My email address is nbaughman-collinge@bousd.us
 
I grew up in Oceano, CA which is about 200 miles north of Los Angeles in San Luis Obispo County.  I moved to Southern CA after high school to attend UCLA.  I have a degree in Mathematics/Economics.  I would have majored in Statistics but that was not offered at the time.  I received my teaching credential and Masters Degree in Education from UCLA as well.  
 
Once we move into the Hybrid Model, I'll typically leave campus at the end of 5th period so if your kids have any questions the best time for them to stop by Room 230 is at snack or lunch if they don't feel comfortable asking during class.  Anyone can also email me or leave me a voicemail at ext 2230. 
 
I'll only be able to listen to voicemail once we get back to campus on the Hybrid Model or "Regular" school.
 
I have the pleasure of teaching AP Statistics (Periods 0, 1 and 5) this year for the 17th time.  We'll be following the college board outline for the class:  Gathering Data, Analyzing Data, Probability, and Inference.
 
AP STATS Plan...Please see the Calendar link on this page and also have students utilize Google Classroom for links to PDFs of Chapter Notes, Google Forms, Links to Zoom Sessions, Videos of me going over class notes and review sheets, and Google Classroom Assignments.

I will also be teaching Algebra 2 (Periods 3 and 4) this year.  The content in this course follows the California Mathematics Common Core Standards for Algebra 2.  The content will include the following: linear functions and graphs, linear systems, quadratic, polynomial, radical, exponential, logarithmic and rational functions, conic sections, sequences and series, and probability and statistics.
 
ALGEBRA 2 Plan...Please see the Calendar link on this page and also have students utilize Google Classroom for links to Google Forms, Links to Zoom Sessions, Videos of me going over class notes, and Google Classroom Assignments.
 
 
For all students and parents, please expect a weekly email so that we can all stay on the same page during this incredibly unique time.
 
I look forward to having an amazing and memorable year!  Thank you in advance for joining me on this adventure.
