Marya Dolezal

Welcome.  My name is Marya Dolezal and I teach mathematics at Willard.  I grew up in Western Montana and this is my 17th year of teaching.  I taught in Western Washington, Bigfork, at Missoula College, Seeley Lake and this is now my ninth year at Willard. I have a BA in Mathematics, a minor in German, and a Masters Degree in Educational Theory and Practice.  I have a wonderful family of my husband and 4 dogs, and have recently been undertaking many house and garden projects.

  • Algebra 1A

    We will be reviewing skills needed for success in Algebra 1 such as distributive properties, combining like terms, solving equations with 1 variable.  We then move into slope, and graphing and rewriting linear equations into slope intercept form.

  • Algebra 1B

    In this second part of three Algebra 1 we will spend 6-7.5 weeks learning how to solve systems of two equations with 2 unknown variables using graphing, substitution and elimination.  We will put these problems in context as well (word problems!)

    The second unit we will do is on exponential functions.  Students learn about exponential growth and decay, graphing exponents, writing equations, how to model data from the real world, etc.

  • Algebra 1C

    In this final part of Algebra 1 students will have two units of study.  The first unit is quadratics.  We will graph parabolas, factor to find the x-intercepts, learn about the line of symmetry, solve using the quadratic formula and completing the square.  We will also use quadratics to model science (tire marks of a vehicle) to estimate speed, how far a ball will go, how long it takes for something to hit the ground, maximizing area, etc.

    The final of the year is critical for understanding in today's world and (in my opinon) very interesting, it is statistics.  Statistics are a way to view the world around us through data and numbers.  We will look at interpreting data through a variety of graphs, and how to calculate measures of central tendancy and spread.  We will also discuss misleading graphs, and how data can be skewed.
