## Welcome to Algebra 1B.

This second course in algebra 1 is designed to reinforce concepts taught in algebra 1a as well as to extend the course to it's natural conclusion with quadratic factoring and solving quadratics.

We will spend the first quarter and a week or two of the second quarter reviewing chapters 1-4 with assessments for each chapter. The remaining chapters 5, 6, 7, 8 and parts of 9 and 10 will be taught at a much slower pace with the emphasis on understanding and reinforcement. Unlike the first quarter that covers roughly 1 section in the textbook per day, the second half of the course will have 2-3 days per section. Students should expect more classwork and checking by the teacher but a decrease in homework quantity.
