Welcome to Mr. B's Teacher Website!
My name is Mr. Buonocore and welcome to both Chester High School and the 2020-2021 school year! This is my 7th year teaching Algebra I here at Chester High School. As you know, Chester Upland School district will be holding all its classes remotely through the calendar year. Fortunately, the 9th grade academy is uniquely prepared for such an event as we have used online learning platforms for years. Algebra I and English 9 use a program known as Gradpoint, Ms. Odom has relied on google classroom, Dr. Johnson uses an online textbook, and Math Skills and Support employs an online program known as Math 180. Through active lessons during class time and utilizing these learning tools, our ninth graders continue to have the opportunity to improve their skill set by at least one grade level this year. It is up to all of us, teachers, students, and parents to propel all of us forward during these unprecedented times. I look forward to embarking on this journey with all of you.
While working on Gradpoint, students will be provided with lessons and guided practice by the program. Students should take their time during these lessons. Students will then take a quiz on that topic in which they need to score a 70% or high to proceed. In addition to the lessons on Gradpoint, I have included resources for the students on the left of this page. Under most topics, I will include videos explaining the topics, which you may find easier to follow. Log in information for Gradpoint is located in an announcement in the Algebra page.
