Since school has been cancelled…….

PARENTS

Because school has been cancelled for Thursday and Friday, we are having to make some changes on the run.

Thursday was supposed to be our 9 week test and Friday was the day to turn in our notebooks. Both were major grades.

Since both days have been cancelled, I’m not going to get either.  THE PROBLEM IS I have to have three major grades and without these, I will only have two.  I need one or the other.

Since I will be here next week, this is my proposal.  If your student has not turned in his/her notebook, please drop the notebook off in the front office sometime next week.  If your student would prefer to take the 9 week test, they can come by next week as well.  If they want to do both, I will let them.  If your student does both and has four major grades, I will drop the lowest of the four.

In the event that I do not get a third major grade for your student, I may be forced to give an incomplete or, worst case scenario, a 0 until the needed work is turned in.

Please ask your student if this applies to them.  I was able to get most notebooks from my afternoon classes, bot not my morning classes.

Things are crazy, I know, but thanks in advance for trying to help me out.

Algebra 1, Second Quarter, Week 7 Plans

Monday-  Several students were out Friday due to illness/extra curricular activities.  These students will make up the test they missed.  Students who completed the test will begin a study of systems of inequalities, via youtube and quizizz, all online.

Tuesday-  Quick systems of inequalities practice and review for our 9 week test.  Today’s review will be over Chapter 6: Systems.

Wednesday-  9 week test review, Day 2.  Our topic will be Chapter 5: Writing linear equations.

Thursday- 9 Week Test.  Remember that the 9 week test can be used to replace a lower test grade from previously in the quarter.

Friday-  Go over 9 week test and grades/semester exams.  Notebooks are due (major grade).

Slides for all systems notes

The link below connects to my slides presentation about systems and solving systems.  If you missed a day or need to fill in some missing notes, take a look.

Our Systems test is Friday, 12/8.  We will review Thursday 12/7.

Per math department policy, if you miss a review day, you are still required to take the test on your return.  Study your notes, this slides presentation, and work on your practice cards in your notebook.

Algebra 1: Second Quarter, Weeks 5-7 Plans

Monday 11/27-  Today, I will introduce systems of equations and solving by graphing.  Daily practice #1 will be sent home as homework due tomorrow.

Tuesday 11/28-  Today, we will continue solving by graphing with an in-class activity.  Daily practice #2 will be sent home as homework due tomorrow.

Wednesday 11/29- Today, we will review solving by graphing with practice cards that will stay in our notebooks.  We will take a quiz during the second half of class over, what else, solving by graphing.  Daily practice #3 will be sent home as homework due tomorrow.

Thursday 11/30-  Today, I will introduce solving systems of equations by substitution.  Daily practice #4 will be sent home as homework due tomorrow.

Friday 12/1-  Today, we will review solving by substitution with practice cards that will stay in our notebooks.  We will take a quiz during the second half of class over solving systems by substitution and graphing.

 

Monday 12/4-  Today, I will introduce solving systems of equations by elimination (also called the additions method).  Daily practice #5 will be sent home as homework due tomorrow.

Tuesday 12/5- Today, we will review the elimination method with practice cards that will stay in our notebooks.  We will take a quiz during the second half of class over solving systems using all three methods.

Wednesday 12/6-  Today, we will practice systems special cases using practice cards that will stay in our notebooks.

Thursday 12/7-  Systems review day-  Graphing, Substitution, Elimination, Special Cases

Friday 12/8-  Systems Test

 

Monday 12/11-  Today, we will discuss linear inequalities in two variables.

Tuesday 12/12-  Today, we will discuss systems of linear inequalities.

Wednesday 12/13-  Cumulative Quarter Test Review

Algebra 1, Second Quarter: Week 4 Plans

As we draw near to Thanksgiving, please allow me to say how thankful I am to be a part of WOHS.  I am very thankful that I am allowed to be a part of student’s lives on a daily basis.  To my students:  thank you for being wonderful individuals as we continue your education journey.  To all parents:  thank you for entrusting me with two very important things:  your students and their education.

 

Monday-  We will go over last week’s test question by question.  Overall, the grades were on the lower side, so I intend to draw attention to basic ideas and easily correctable mistakes.  I will send home some slope homework due tomorrow.

Tuesday-  More slope and rewriting equations into slope-intercept form.

Wednesday-  Domain and Range practice from verbal descriptions.

Thursday-  Domain and Range practice from graphical representations.

Friday-  Calculator skills focusing on fractions

 

2nd Quarter: Week 2 Plans

My apologies for getting this week’s plans out so late.  I was out on Monday and am in catch up mode.

Monday we did some linear equation word problems.

Tuesday-  Today, we will review all types of linear equations, including slope-intercept, point-slope, and standard form.

Wednesday-  Today is a half day, so I will not see my afternoon classes.  The classes I will see will get an introduction to parallel and perpendicular lines.

Thursday and Friday-  More parallel and perpendicular lines.

Next Monday, we will review sections 4.1-4.4 and Tuesday we will take our first test of the quarter.  If you, or your student, is struggling, please make arrangements to come before or after school for extra help.

2nd Quarter: Algebra 1 Week 1 Plans

Monday-  We will begin Chapter 4:  Writing Liner Functions.  Section 1 is writing equations in slope-intercept form.

Tuesday-  We will continue Section 1 by writing slope-intercept form equations from real-world examples.

Wednesday-  Section 2:  Writing point-slope form equations

Thursday-  We will continue Section 2 by using point-slope equations to get slope-intercept equations from real world examples.

Friday-  Quiz over Sections 4.1 and 4.2

 

Algebra 1 Week 9 Plans

Monday-  Test Review Day #2

Tuesday-  9 Week Test (approximately 23-25 questions, 20 multiple choice, 3-5 non multiple choice)
