About me

I've been teaching at Aiken High since 2000. I teach Probability and Statistics, Algebra I, AICE Thinking Skills. I am also certified by the state to teach AP Statistics. I enjoy playing board games, so I am the sponsor of the Chess Club. I would love to show you how to play cribbage.

I graduated from Furman University in 1986 with a B.S. in Mathematics. In 1991, I received a J.D. from the University of South Carolina. Since becoming a teacher, I have taken a few graduate courses in statistics.

  • Virtual Day 11/11

    Posted by Ervin Swearingen on 11/10/2022

    Here's what should be on tap for students on their Virtual Day.

    1. Algebra students should work in ALEKS. You have a new set of 10 lessons to complete.

    2. Prob and Stats students should work on the assignment to write a Normal problem and prepare a key. It was due tomorrow, but you will be able to turn it in on Monday. Remember that is worth 2 quiz grades.

    3. AICE Thinking Skills students should work on the Strengths and Challenges report or the student brochure. You were each assigned to a team for that today.

    I will be available to conference during school hours with you on Teams. Just send me an email or a message in Schoology.

  • EDay on 9/30

    Posted by Ervin Swearingen on 9/30/2022

    Today I am monitoring email to answer questions. I can set up a Teams meeting if you want to do that -- just let me know by email. For the Algebra I class, I have posted a written explanation and video for students who missed the explanation on Thursday of the work you are to do today.

  • OneNote notebook links sent

    Posted by Ervin Swearingen on 9/7/2022

    During the first week of school, I sent home personalized links with instructions for getting into Schoology. Schoology is a course management system that I rely on for collecting work. Many parents have created accounts so that they can see what a student sees in that program.

    I mostly use Schoology to collect work, but the assignments and classnotes aren't there. They are in OneNote, instead.

    If you go to my course page, you can get access to the OneNote content library for your child's course. Many parents are likely to be satisfied with that level of access; with access to the content library, you can see what I have distributed to students.

    Parents who create an account at Schoology will also receive a link to a student's personal OneNote notebook for the class. This is different from the content library because it allows parents to see the notes and work that aren't turned into Schoology.

    Today, I sent the personalized OneNote links to parents who have a Schoology account. If you want that link, email me and I will get you into both Schoology and OneNote.
