WOHS, Algebra 1, Quarter 1, Week 9 Plans

Monday-  Section 3.7:  Transformations of the linear parent function

Tuesday- 9 week test review (Chapters 1-3)

Wednesday-  9 week test

Thursday-  Calculator Practice

Friday-  No school for students, Teacher inservice

Just a reminder about our 9 week test:  The nine week test, of course, is a major test grade.  However, it can also be used to drop a lower test grade.  If the 9 week test grade is higher than a previous test grade, the lowest grade will be replaced with the higher 9 week test grade.  In effect, the higher grade will be used twice, while the lowest grade will be removed.  A good 9 week test grade can greatly help an overall average.

I’ll be available after school Monday and Tuesday afternoons to any extra help a student may need.

WOHS Algebra 1 Chapter 1 Test Update

Our Chapter 1 test is scheduled for Thursday.

I have created an OPTIONAL online test review on our textbook website (bigideasmath.com). All students are familiar with login/password for this site.  I have allowed unlimited answer checks, so you can work and practice until you get a correct answer. This is not for a grade. It is just for practice, but it will help prepare your for your test. It will open at the end of your class period on Wednesday.

I am staying after school tomorrow for extra practice.
