Mrs. Kimberly Pfanstiel

My name is Kimberly Pfanstiel, and I have been teaching at Perkiomen Valley Middle School East since 2006. I am a graduate of East Stroudsburg University where I earned a Bachelors of Science in Secondary Mathematics Education, and also a Masters of Secondary Education. Since I was a high school student I knew I wanted to be a math teacher. I have a true love and passion for math, and want to share that with my students. No matter where you go in life, or what you choose to do, math is incorporated into our daily lives. It is my goal for all students to learn to see and model their world mathematically.

My Classes

Algebra IA
Algebraic topics will be introduced in this course. The goal of this course will be to provide students with an opportunity to practice algebraic concepts through the integration of graphical, numerical, analytical and verbal processes while building the groundwork for future success in the study of mathematics. This course will focus on interpretation of solutions in the context of the problem and will emphasize real world applications, recognizing patterns, and data analysis.

Algebra I
Topics addressed include number systems and their relationships, computation and estimation, solving linear equations and inequalities, exploring functions and their graphs, solving systems of equations and inequalities, properties of exponents and roots, operations with polynomials, solving quadratic expressions, and solving rational equations. This course will emphasize real world applications, recognizing patterns, data analysis, and interpretation of the algebraic concepts. Use of technology for problem solving will be included. 

This courses stresses critical thinking, logical reasoning and problem solving. Topics to be studied include angle relationships, parallel lines, congruent and similar triangles, circles, and other plane and solid figures. The use of technology for problem solving will be included where appropriate.
