Self study the entire chapter and do each and every problem in the book. Her test questions are the same as the problems in the book (only the numbers are changed). Once I realized this my test average went from around 80% to 95%. If you are struggling with problems ask her for help after school. No one is there and she is willing to give you a detailed explanation for the problems. Unless your already good at math be prepared to spend a lot of time studying (3 hours per day for me).

Mrs.Franzita's algebra 2/trig class is the hardest of all the 2/trig teachers. She doesn't really give extra credit. Her homework is pretty easy ad she doesn't check until the day of the tests. Basically, the only thing that matters in her class is how you do on tests. STUDY FOR THE TESTS GODDAMMIT! Her tests are actually really hard and most people who get As on them have to study a lot. She will not give individual test corrections and she will not remake tests if you fail so be warned.

Ms. Frazita is a very helpful AND approachable!
People say stuff like "she gives too much homework and i'm stuck with 100 problems to do the night before the test" ?!?! Ms. Frazita assigns a few reasonably challenging problems each night and does not check it until the day of the test...so whose fault is it if you have 100 problems to do in one night?!
While I agree Ms. Frazita's tests are rather difficult and math has always been my weakest subject, I think she's a great teacher.

Calc AB is terrible. She does this thing called a flipped classroom, where you watch a video of her teaching the lesson at home and do homework in class; it doesn't work for me, and I'm doing pretty badly in her class. Her exams and quizzes are pretty challenging for what we learn. She is a nice person and has a friendly personality; she's just not good as a teacher. If you have her, whether for Alg 2/Trig or Calc AB, be prepared to get a tutor or some kind of help; you will not find it in her.

Ms. Frazita is an amazingly approachabl teacher who tries very hard to get her class to understand the subject material. She'd ask everyone if they had questions about the homework problems, and if there weren't enough volunteers to explain them she'd always do the remaining problems herself. If someone gave a confusing explanation, she'd step in and explain it all over again. She doesn't run an easy AP Calc AB class, but she's definitely a great teacher.

I had her for 2/trig and she never taught us. Everyday our homework was watching a video, so we had to wait to ask questions during class the next day. She also gives a ton of homework, and never goes over any notes. ==*rmt*==

2/Trig: Really nice but teaching style could be a bit better. She started making us watch videos AT HOME to learn the concepts and we just did what we were supposed to for homework at school. Common Core is also really annoying but she answers questions pretty well and tried to make her tests easier to compensate for the difficulty. She's a good teacher but just study hard (by yourself because the videos aren't very helpful) and know everything or it won't be a good experience.

I had her for Alg2/Trig. She's really nice and she teaches very well. Tests are pretty hard ( time crunch) but she prepares you well for it. MAKE SURE YOU READ THE DIRECTIONS ON THE TEST; you have to be specific or she marks off major points. The good thing is that if she feels that the class isn't ready, she postpones the test! How nice is that?! She can be pretty funny, too. I loved her class. If you get help during tutorial, get there ASAP, as all the Calc students swarm around her later.

Ms. Frazita's class is not easy, but she does a good job of teaching the material clearly. Her lectures are helpful, so pay attention! You will need to study for the tests to do well, though. Her class requires that you put in some effort, but if you have questions she answers them thoroughly.

Appears nice and helpful until you actually need something from her. She weights the tests VERY harshly and is reluctant to make exceptions for students who were sick or otherwise absent. She wouldn't budge on a make up test even when I was down with the flu for an entire week and ruined my sophomore GPA.

Very good teacher, knows her stuff. She's not the easiest (Romander's a lot easier), and her final is tricky if you don't study much. She is always willing to help you if you have problems, which is probably why her room is always full during tutorial.

yes it's true. grading is 80% tests and 20% hw. it's not so bad as long as you ASK QUESTIONS if you don't get it. she's really helpful and explains very well. the lectures can get boring on block days. participate a lot!! u can get a lot of extra points.she doesn't give much time to practice (like other teachers) for the final so u have to study ahead of time.

Ms. Frazee explains things very well; however, lectures can be slightly boring, especially if you have her 1st period. Still, she's nice and a good teacher. Grading is 80% tests, which means you really have to know the material, but as long as you do your homework when it's assigned (although homework is generally cumulatively due on the day of the test) and ask for help on things you don't get, you'll be fine. ^^
