For the things of this world cannot be made known without a knowledge of mathematics. ‍Neglect of mathematics works injury to all knowledge, since he who is ignorant of it cannot know the other sciences or the things of the world. ~Roger Bacon

A website designed to foster mathematical exploration and discovery.
Hello, my name is Mr. Kyle Nobbe. I have been teaching mathematics at Roger Bacon High School since 2005. This site has been designed as a way for students to explore mathematical concepts, engage in critical thinking and mathematical analysis, and gather information for our courses. Use the links on the left to choose your class.

Through this website, I will communicate announcements, leave assignments, operate a classroom discussion board, provide links to websites for practice, and upload files that you may find helpful in the study of our course. Here is a brief explanation of all those features:

Announcements: A basic outline of the class. This is where I might update you on project due dates, upcoming tests, or reiterate information that was given during the class period. Please review this section of the website each time you visit to make sure you are up to date on all important information.

Assignments: These will be posted weekly. All assignments (other than homework) are due on Friday of the given week. Please use this portion of the website as a checklist to make sure you are current on all work.

Discussion Board: At the top right hand side of each class page are two overlapping quote bubbles. This is where the weekly discussions for our class are posted. It is expected that each student post a response to the discussion question listed by Wednesday each week. Additionally, students should respond to the comments of at least two other students by Friday.

Documents: In this section of the website, I will post worksheets, handouts, or other information that could be used to complete assignments or deepen your understanding of a certain topic. Additionally, students will be asked to post resources that they have found helpful in their study to this section of the website.

Notes: I will post class notes (when possible) to this section of the website. At times, groups of students will be assigned the responsibility of taking and posting their own class notes to this section of the website.

Below you will find links to other mathematical sites that may help you in your studies for our course. Check them out.
