Algebra 1 Course Outline
Week of December 2, 2013 – January 1, 2014
Mr. John R. Wallace, Jr., Senior Administrator
I hope that each of you has had a peaceful and wonderful Thanksgiving. I also hope that you had a chance to get some well-deserved rest. You have been working very hard the last several weeks, and the break was in in order.
The next twelve days before Christmas Break, we will be finishing up Chapter 4 of our Algebra text. I know that the word problems we are now covering are different that the first several lessons of Chapter 4, but I also know that each one of you can master these with some focused effort. Every one of you has the potential to be an “A” Algebra student which will position you for excellence in your Algebra class next school year. Still, perfection is not what I ask. I simply am looking for your best effort! If there are not any setbacks weather wise, we should be able to punch into Chapter 5 which will widen your view of math by coming to understand that there can be more than one correct answer to an algebra problem- these problems are called inequalities. Many times, there are an infinite number of correct answers in an answer set…. Just something to nibble on!
Christmas is just around the corner. At the bottom of this class outline, I have placed the prophecy we find in Isaiah regarding the coming of Jesus. As I look at what the Lord spoke through Isaiah, I think that each idea is worthy of examination during the next few weeks before Christmas. Questions like: Why a child? Do I see Jesus as “Wonderful”? Is Jesus my “Counselor”? Is He the “Prince of Peace” upon which I rest? Will I be with Him “forever”? These verses are filled with the Spiritual in a time that the culture honors the physical. Where do you personally stand in your relationship with the Lord? These questions can be asked and answered any time of the year, but Christmas whispers to our heart a request for our answers.
Merry Christmas you guys. You are loved, and precious in His sight!
Christmas Joy and Blessings!

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
