Hey students and parents! Welcome! 
About our Class:
I am so excited to work with you and your student in our class! Despite the different emotions and opinions you may have about math class, remember that math teaches us more than computations. Math teaches us how to think critically, how to problem solve, and how to prove an idea. Math is important in so many different fields of work, such as engineering, chemistry, computer science, construction, data interpretation, business, economics, medicine... to name a few! Even if you aren't sure about going into one of these fields, know that you still need to be able to think outside of the box, to solve problems, and prove your solution. Our class, DP Mathematics Applications and Interpretations, recognizes the increasing role that mathematics and technology play in a diverse range of fields in a data-rich world.  As such, it emphasizes the meaning of mathematics in context by focusing on topics that are often used in applications or in mathematical modeling.  To give this understanding a firm base, this course also includes topics that are traditionally part of a pre-university mathematics course such as calculus and statistics.
Stay Connected:
Make sure to join the google classroom for our class, and subscribe here for updates as well. This will have ALL resources, assignments, due dates, etc for our class! 
I will also be communicating via Remind101. This will help students and families to stay up to date with our class. I will remind about upcoming assessments and projects, or study sessions! 
Remember, if you are feeling lost, PLEASE email me at haheroff@cps.edu. I would LOVE to meet with you during lunch, or we can set up a time to meet after-school. Remember also that I allow retakes and corrections to improve your grade. If you are not happy with your grade, or want extra help, please reach out. I am here for you!
About Me: I was born and raised in Chicago, and I am a CPS Alum! I graduated from Loyola University of Chicago with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education and a Bachelor of Science in Math Education. 
In my free time, I love to run, and have run several marathons. My husband and I also like to play ice hockey! You can also catch me reading, gardening, or working on projects around my house! 
I co-sponsor the Run Club. We usually meet once a week and run together, and run a few races in Chicago every year. Join run club!
