# Algebra II – Kevin Bond

## Weekly Lesson Plans

Here you will find *draft versions* of class notes for our current week in school. These notes represent a dynamic process, that is, throughout the week I’m updating what I actually cover in class to reflect students’ interests and abilities. Hence, some details here may change from what is available here to what is actually covered within the classroom. That said, the notes and assignments listed on this page will prepare students for graded assignments, so they should be carefully reviewed and followed if a student is absent or needs review. Students, or parents, should contact me by email if they have any questions, thoughts, or concerns.
