Welcome to Mr. Cocklin's Algebra 1 or Math 1 class. In the links to the left you will find useful information for both students and parents in regards to upcoming assignments and due dates, PowerPoint presentations of lessons taught in class, graphing calculator worksheet activities, and a monthly layout of what you can expect to learn!
This year will mark my 14th year of teaching and 13th overall at Northwest. I am a 2003 graduate of John Carroll University where I earned my undergraduate degree in middle childhood (grades 4-9) education with a focus on mathematics and social studies. In 2010, I earned my high school Adolescent Young Adult (AYA grades 7-12) licensure in mathematics from Kent State University and last year I completed my master's degree in Educational Leadership through Concordia University of Chicago. In addition to teaching I had previously served as the Junior Varsity Boys' Basketball Coach and in some capacity have been with the program since starting at Northwest in 2005. This marks the first year that I will teaching at Northwest High School but coaching varsity basketball (Varsity Assistant) at Massillon Washington High School.
I look forward to having a great year!
