Algebra Two Summer Work

Your summer work to prepare you for Algebra Two (CP 2) is a review of some topics from algebra one: lines and systems of equations.

Watch each video and fill in the details in the outline notes in your packet.  After filling in the notes, complete the corresponding "practice problems" found at the end of the packet.  Be sure to show all your work.

The packets are due on the first day of class.  There will be a test on this material on the second day of class.

For more details regarding this assignment, please read the letter:

If you run into any technical difficulties, or have any questions (either general about the summer work or specific questions on any topic) feel free to email either of us!   (Our email addresses are in the letter.)

Enjoy the summer and we're looking forward to meeting you in the fall!
