Algebra is the mathematical study of how to understand and represent problems, make generalizations about patterns, and use mathematical tools to communicate. While there is a component of symbol manipulation, its focus is on how to effectively use those symbols and tools to analyze different situations. Students will be guided to think equally about the “what does this mean” aspects of math, as well as on the “how to do it” aspects.

Taught by Mrs. Rivkie Eisen

זְכר יְמוֹת עוֹלָם בִּינוּ שְׁנוֹת דּר וָדר שְׁאַל אָבִיךָ וְיַגֵּדְךָ זְקֵנֶיךָ וְיאמְרוּ לָךְ We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future. -George Bernard Shaw

Taught by Mrs. Dena Feldman

Taught by Mrs. M. Ungar, Principal

So, life’s a funny thing. It’s completely unpredictable to the human eye. As young, entering freshman, all of you have sort of left childhood behind.


Taught by Miss Sari Mayer

Welcome to Art History! In Art History students will learn about modern history’s greatest artists. The students will learn to distinguish one artist’s style from another and will create their own artwork inspired by the paintings they have studied. To be able to express oneself through art is an amazing thing; art is an outlet with which to communicate one’s feelings and boost creativity and self confidence.

Taught by Mrs. Gitty Pultman

Welcome to “Fun”damental Physics, a 9th grade science program where students study physics before chemistry and biology. In re-sequencing the traditional high school science courses, Bnos Yaakov has adopted the Physics First approach advocated by leading national science educators. Exposing students to the concrete concepts of physics builds a stronger foundation for understanding the more abstract concepts introduced later in chemistry and biology.
