Algebra 1 Course Outline
Week of February 17-March 14, 2014
Mr. John R. Wallace, Jr., Senior Administrator
Welcome back from an unscheduled five day weekend. We are now making a huge, hopefully uninterrupted, push toward Easter Break at the end of April. During the next several weeks, you will need to show a high level of intensity and organization in order to have success. I encourage you to stay on top of each lesson through daily study and homework. I know you will have tremendous success as you follow the plan which I have laid out for you.
Now that we completed the Chapter 6 Exam, we will move right into solving systems of equations using different methods. While graphing provides an excellent start in learning to solve equations, there are drawbacks using this method. This means we will need to learn additional ways that to solve not just one equation, but up to three at a time. The essence of Chapter 7 will allow us to find out what answers we can use to solve two or more equations at the same time. This material has real world implications in business and science.
God has been so good to us. We have a cool (sometimes way to cold) room with a roof that keeps the rain off our heads. Better than that, we have a peaceful school to meet and study. Even better than that, we have a God that loves each one of us and sent His Son to die so we could be called children of the King. When we are tempted to complain, frustrated or overwhelmed, we should seek God and see the blessings He has given to us that are so easy look past!
Have a great week! You all are awesome and a true blessing!
