Algebra 1 Course Outline

Week of November 17-December 19, 2014

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

 

Students:

I am so pleased that each student in middle and high school is doing such a great job this school year. It is an incredible honor and blessing to teach each of you! Your consistent effort and positive, engaged response make it extra special to be your teacher. Thank you. This class outline covers up to Christmas Break. I want to remind you that we are entering a time of year that may lead to missed days of school due to weather, as well as day days we will have off at Thanksgiving and Christmas Break. Please continue to be diligent in your studies during this time. The break in our weekly routines can cause our material to seem disjointed and out of context. You can overcome this by staying on top of work for each class and following the class outline.

In Algebra 1, we will be pressing forward in working with different types of word problems in which algebra can actually be applied. I encourage you to be extra diligent to apply the skills we have been learning in class to the homework. We will then move into work on something new- inequalities. We will learn what they are and three different methods to solve them. The inequality section will be a nice break after the word problem section.

Most of you know that we ae entering one of my favorite times of year. The Thanksgiving season is a time to thank God for the ultimate blessing of a secure future with Him as we live out His plan for our lives on this side of eternity. We also have another opportunity to live out the expression of a grateful heart which reminds us that this should be our daily attitude every day of the year. Thanksgiving opens to the sweet Christmas Season, with everything that goes with it:  family, friends, gifts, and so much more- the Center. It is at this time that we are reminded of the precious baby Jesus. This child, fully God and fully man, who laid down His heavenly power, so that He could come to live a life that we were not able to live to die a death that would secure our eternity with Him. This is powerful stuff. It is victory stuff, and Jesus is the Center of it. Christmas is a time to reflect on and, like every day, be a reflection of the love of God toward all. It is my prayer that each of us will grow in our relationship with the Lord as we grow in faith!

I love each of you. Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!

Mr. Wallace
