All Algebra II students

Dear Parents,

With the English MCAS soon upon us I want you to know in Algebra II Levels 4 and 5 we will do at least one entire practice test and also a mini unit on Probability and Statistics to prepare for MCAS math.  I have found that reviewing Geometry is useful to students as they haven't done it for some time.

If our in-class review is not sufficient there will also be MCAS Academics outside of class time for extra practice.  I will provide the schedule to the students and to you when it is confirmed.

In all of my Algebra II classes there will be a test on Friday (3/15) (Thursday for B Block), and then the MCAS begin the following week.  Homework during MCAS week will be less.

Please do not hesitate to write or call about your MCAS questions or concerns.

All the best,

Patrick Morrissey

p.s. Ask your son our daughter to explain the problem below.  Last year 53% of BHS students answered this question correctly. It has to do with the point-slope form of a line.

The answer is B.
