Welcome to Mr. Cocklin's Algebra 1 or Math 1 classroom. 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!
Your Google Classroom will be utilized on a regular basis as a means for staying current with the happenings in our classroom. If you are unable to physically attend our class please utilize the resources found on this site, as well as, Google Classroom and my newly created YouTube Channel!!!
I look forward to having a great year and I encourage both students and parents to use the links to the left to say up to date with our class. Please remember to sign up for the correct google classroom period (students) and the correct Remind thread (both students and parents)!
This year will mark my 16th year of teaching and 15th 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 additionally, I have earned my master's degree in Educational Leadership through Concordia University of Chicago. Outside of teaching at Northwest, I previously served as the Junior Varsity Boys' Basketball Coach and/or Varsity Assistant dating back to 2005. However, this year will be my 3rd as the Varsity Assistant Basketball Coach at Massillon Washington High School.
