Hey everyone. Please remember that I work at a low level senior high school and, for the most part and have found these lessons to be n+1 or 2 for my students. I've also included every worksheet and even the final exam. If you have any questions please feel free to email me at any time, especially if you'd like more specific explanations on some of the activities I do.


The worksheets we've saved as the original Microsoft Word files. That way you can right click on them, save them to your machine and edit them to suit your class.
