Gold Day 7:20 – 8:57am
My name is Laura Crow, and this year I am teaching
Dual Credit Math for Business,
Dual Credit Calculus for Business, AP Calculus AB, and Advanced Geometry. I am also the Math Department Chairperson.
I am excited for the 2020-2021 school
year and look forward making a difference in the life of your child.
the age of 5, I have wanted to be a teacher. I spent the first year of
college trying to deny that fact by taking art classes and majoring in
graphic design. By the end of my second year, I knew that math was my
calling and that teaching was where I should have been headed all along!
August 2004, I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Master
of Arts in Math. I also hold a Bachelor of Science in Math from the
University of Houston at Clear Lake and an Associate in Science in Math
from Alvin Community College. I earned my Texas Educator Certificate as a
Secondary Mathematics Teacher in 1997 and as a Principal in 2017.
24 years teaching experience and have had the pleasure of teaching in
Montgomery ISD for the last 15 years - for the last two years at Lake
Creek High School and 13 years prior at Montgomery High School. I
previously taught in Conroe ISD at Oak Ridge HS, in Klein ISD at both
Klein Collins HS and at Doerre Intermediate, and in Sheldon ISD at CE
husband also works for Montgomery ISD as the Assistant Systems
Administrator for Safety and Security. We have two daughters - one who
attends Lake Creek and is a member of the Royals Dance Team, and one who
is a Montgomery HS graduate and the loudest and proudest member of the
Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of 2022 (even though she will graduate in

Textbook: Pearson Texas Geometry (adopted 2015)
In Geometry, students build on the foundations from K-8 and Algebra I.
Students will explore concepts covering coordinate and transformational
geometry; logical argument and constructions; proof and congruence, similarity,
proof, and trigonometry; two- and three- dimensional figures; circles; and
probability. In the logical arguments and congruence strand, students are
expected to create formal constructions using a straight edge and compass.
Though this course is primarily Euclidean geometry, students should complete
the course with an understanding that non-Euclidean geometries exist. Within
the course, students will begin to focus on more precise terminology and
symbolic representations, and the development of proofs. Throughout the
standards, to "prove" means a formal proof to be shown in a
paragraph, flow chart, or two-column formats. Students will strengthen their
mathematical reasoning skills in geometric contexts.
Curriculum in this advanced course is modified through depth, complexity,
and pacing as compared to the curriculum in the similar level course.
The TEKS for Geometry can be found on the TEA website at http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/rules/tac/chapter111/ch111c.html#111.41.

Textbook: Calculus (AP Edition), 10th edition, Ron Larson & Bruce Edwards
AP Calculus AB is an introductory college-level calculus course.
Students cultivate their understanding of differential and integral
calculus through engaging with real-world problems represented
graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally and using
definitions and theorems to build arguments and justify conclusions as
they explore concepts like change, limits, and the analysis of

About Math for Business...
Applications of common algebraic functions, including polynomial,
exponential, logarithmic, and rational, to problems in business,
economics, and the social sciences are addressed. The applications
include mathematics of finance, including simple and compound interest
and annuities; systems of linear equations; matrices; linear
programming; and probability, including expected value.
