My name is Carolyn Cochrane and I will be teaching Honors Algebra II, Honors Geometry and Advanced Functions and Modeling for the 2012-2013 school year. My main focus is to help students develop and understand fundamental concepts presented in high school mathematics. Functions, related rates, parallel and perpendicular lines, classifications and relationships of triangles, circles, transformations, surface area and volume formulas are some of the topics that will be covered throughout the school year. My main goal as an educator is to help students discover the world of Algebra II, Geometry, and AFM and all the opportunities mathematics can lead to in higher education and as a career.
I am an alumnus of Statesville High school and was thrilled to rejoin the Greyhound family again as an educator! I graduated from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a graduate certificate in Secondary Mathematics Education and I will complete the master's program in May 2013.
