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.

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.
