OFFICIAL DISTRICT UPDATES REGARDING COVID19 SCHOOL CLOSURES
Out of an abundance of caution, and in consultation with local public health, many San Diego County school districts will close March 16 in order to curb the potential transmission of the coronavirus (COVID19).
In alignment with the San Diego County Office of Education and in consultation with the County Health & Human Services Agency, the Escondido Union School District is closing starting Monday, March 16, through Monday, April 13, pending no other health concerns. Bear Valley Middle School will be closed until Monday, April 13, 2020.
In order to ensure equal access to all of our students, Mr. Pearson will not provide any structured / required assignments at this time nor will Mr. Pearson be providing an independent study option. The Escondido Union School District will be sending out resources for families that students can participate in to keep them engaged at their grade level. These activities are highly recommended for students in the absence of classes. Please refer to the Escondido Union School District webpage at www.eusd.org for updates pertaining to school closure.

Slope Intercept Form

Unit 2 EndofUnit Test (Online)
The yintercept of a line is where the line intersects and passes through the yaxis. The yintercept will be Zero if the line passes through the Origin. It can be a positive (above zero) value or a negative (below zero) value depending on where the line intersects the yaxis. If two lines have the same slope, they are parallel. If two lines have the same yintercept, both lines pass through the same point (a common point that is shared) on the yaxis.
