Mr. Ben Putnam

This is my 3rd year as a teacher and I am excited about being a Palmer Ridge Bear. Formal Education as a Mechanical Engineer from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS). Let's make this an amazing year together.


  •  Algebra 2 is the second year of Algebra and refines and expands techniques in elementary algebra.  Emphasis is placed on developing fundamental algebra skills required for higher level problem-solving.  Topics include the study of real and complex numbers, functions, linear, quadratic and polynomial functions, conic sections, exponential and logarithmic functions, and rational expressions and functions.  The use of a scientific calculator is required.


    General Math is a course focused on fundamentals and tailored as much as possible towards individual growth and individual growth goals. This is a co-taught class, meaning there are two teachers in the room working together.
