This site exists to support learning in Mr. Dunn’s 7th grade pre-AP math class at William B. Travis Academy in Dallas, Texas.
Resources are provided for students and their parents to aid in learning, organization, and discussion.
Mr. Dunn graduated magna cum laude from the University of Texas at Dallas with a BA in Physics. Many thanks to the faculty in the UTeach program who were instrumental in forming his teaching philosophy and methods.
Students in my courses can expect to experience the fun of mathematics as they explore a variety of applications of probability, statistics, data analysis, financial modeling, area/volume determination, and manipulation of rational numbers.
Parents are encouraged to take an active role in their child’s education, and this site will provide information on current topics of study. There will also be frequent suggested topics for additional research or discussion that parents may wish to bring up at home.
