Welcome

(Please Click the above link to schedule a time)

Hello! My name is Rick Foose and I teach HS math. I am originally from Wheeling, WV. I graduated from WV Wesleyan College with a bachelor's degree majoring in secondary education and mathematics while minoring in political science.

I have taught math for 24 years. I am now starting my 19th year of teaching and living in Washington Court House, and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I currently teach Algebra I and General Math at the high school.

I have 2 children in the school district who both attend Washington High School. I am a huge sports fanatic, and enjoy just about any sport. I follow all Blue Lion athletic teams and regularly attend events.  I am a fan of Ohio State, Duke, and WVU at the college level.  At the professional level, I follow the Cavs & Lakers (NBA), Reds (MLB), and the Cowboys (NFL).

If you ever have an issue that needs brought to my attention, feel free to email me at [email protected] or call the high school main office (740-636-4221) and ask for me there. My conference period is 1st period which is from 7:20-8:08am. Thanks!

Supplies Needed & Assignments

 Supplies needed:
- a 3-ring binder with paper for note taking (it may be helpful to have dividers into Notes, Assessments, & Handouts)

Assignments:
All assignments will be posted using the Pearson EasyBridge app on your Google "waffle".  These will also be posted on Canvas/Google Classroom. Upon being graded, they will be displayed on Progress Book.

How to be successful:

- Have good attendance (every day you are absent a new concept may be taught)
- Take good notes (use a highlighter for important material) and view additional help on the Pearson app
- Study and review your notes (this will improve the likelihood of mastery)
- Complete all assignments (this will maximize your grade)
- Ask questions (don't be afraid or embarrassed to seek assistance)
- Attend Office Hours to seek individual help
- Check Google Classroom / Canvas &  look at Progress Book regularly (this will verify your work and keep you informed)
- Build your confidence to relieve math anxiety
