We will continue working in Chapter 8 - Linear Functions. The students will interpret scatter plots, use function notation and graph/solve systems of linear equations.

Algebra I

Students will be learning all about polynomials in the second half of chapter 6.  We will discuss different types of polynomials, how to add, subtract and multiply polynomials, and then how to factor polynomials.


Students will be switching over to a different book.  We will be using "Theology of the Body for Teens" for the next two-three months.  It focuses on answering the questions, "Who Am I?" and "How Should I Live?"


Students MUST have rosaries at school every Wednesday. They will receive participation points and I will be checking that they have one each time we go to church for the rosary in the morning.
