Algebra II (4) Parent Email

November 4, 2012

Dear Algebra II (4) Parents,

Tomorrow will be our last assessment of quarter one.  A test on linear systems.  If I could summarize in a sentence it's problems that include graphing and solving a set of two lines that are either intersecting in 1 point, intersecting in no points (i.e. parallel) or the same line that intersects in an infinite number of points.  Below is taken from our class notes to illustrate.



I have reviewed with students (and emailed to you) the data from our last assessment, and students know that there will be what we've begun to call a "fundamental skills check" to make sure topics that were underperforming, and then revisited, have been mastered.

Our last assessment data email can be found by clicking here 

I was so appreciative of one parent who wrote back saying she reviewed the last assessment with her son, and he was still unclear about how to graph piecewise functions.  I started the next class reviewing a few problems due to this feedback.

I am hopeful we'll end the quarter strong.

My Best,

Patrick Morrissey
