**Algebra 1 Course
Outline**

**Week of
April 13 – May 28, 2015**

**Mr. John R.
Wallace, Jr., Senior Administrator**

Students:

Congrats! You are almost done
with your high school year of Algebra 1. I am now going to tell you a small
secret. The massive Bob Jones Algebra 1 Curriculum that we will almost complete
this year is equivalent to a freshman college level class. If you mastered the
concepts that we covered this year, then you are very, very well prepared for
future math courses. I am really proud of the work that you have done. Great
job!

So what is the most important,
intellectual knowledge or the pursuit of an on-going relationship with the Lord
that results in a yielded life to God?
This school year, we have learned many things related to math and order,
as well the application of these things. This is certainly what is required to
graduate from our high school, but the real question is: Is this accomplishment
“good”. Many applaud the acquiring of
knowledge to the point that it becomes a goal and idol. This desire drives
their lives. The truth is that knowledge is of itself neither good nor bad. It
is neutral. So the question then may be asked, “How come the application of
knowledge sometimes results in things that we deem as good?” The answer has
been lost by modern secular education which is rooted in secular humanism. The
application of neutral knowledge is made good or bad through the process of its
use which involves a human being. The
person using the knowledge makes the knowledge “good” or “bad” through how they
chose to use it. Therefore, the person- who they are or are not in Christ,
becomes the key in the process. Much as a potter can make clay into hideous and
evil sculptures or a beautiful creation, you and I must be molded by God which
then allows us to accomplish His purposes in using what we learn.

This is why I have taken time in
this section of the lesson plans to write you about the Lord. I know that
knowledge without the mind of Christ in the user will not result in what God is
seeking. Conversely, knowledge applied with the mind of Christ will accomplish
kingdom goals. The job of a Christian school educator is to keep this in front
of a student so that this perspective is not lost. It is truly tragic when a
person believes that they can bring value to this world without being sold out
totally to Jesus. I pray that this class has been an incubator for this world
view.

It has been an honor to teach
you! Go in peace! You are loved!

Blessings,

Mr.
Wallace
