    Welcome to Advanced Mathematical Decision Making and your fourth year of high school math!  This will be my 10th year teaching AMDM and I truly enjoy teaching seniors.  AMDM is not your typical math class of graphing functions and solving for x.  AMDM is a math course that will teach you how to problem solve and make decisions about math in everyday life. Students in AMDM do not walk out of class saying “when am I ever going to use this in real life.”  For instance, if you were in charge of prom, could you estimate how big of a location we would need for all the juniors, seniors, and guest to fit safely? We also have a unit which addresses speedometer and odometer problems after replacing stock tires/wheels with larger ones. Near the end of the year we will address finances, budgeting, along with car and home loans. You will learn the difference between simple and compound interest, computing student loan payments and interest, and the good and bad of using credit cards. Solving real math problems is what the AMDM course is all about. We usually have guest speakers from the community who assist with this.

    The AMDM Syllabus is designed to give more details about the AMDM course this year.  You can find it on my Ola High School webpage at this link: https://schoolwires.henry.k12.ga.us/Page/119417

    This school year is off to a very different start.  If students need extra help my office hours are from 1:45 – 3:15 pm every Tuesday and Thursday.  Since you can’t just drop by my classroom for extra help, send me an email, and I will send you a Google Meet code to join. Should you need assistance outside of this time, please let me know. There is always a way to assist students needing help.

    Students: what do you do before your scheduled class time?  Make sure you have your school issued Chromebook charged up and ready to go.  Make sure you have paper, a writing tool, and calculator available.

    As your last high school math teacher, I want your senior year to be enjoyable and successful.  Before we know it, you will be walking across the stage in cap and gown.  Let me know how I can help you be successful this year.

    Sincerely,

    Kevin Bagley
