Subject: Alg 2/Geometry Split Class

Hi all! 

I am a first year teacher and am having a hard time deciding how to
teach one of my classes.  It is an Algebra 2/Geometry split class.  I
am not sure if the school had worked out an arrangement with the
teacher who worked here before me, but I came into this school with
this rather strange assignment and I do not know how to teach it.

Let me give you some background...
Our school is a small school in Southern California.  We have only
11th and 12th graders.  My split class is 3/4 Algebra 2 and 1/4
Geometry.  Students were originally told they would be given
self-paced packets for the class.

I have never taught with packets and do not have packets to teach
with.  If anyone has any suggestions or resources that might be of use
for me, that would be great.

Thanks in advance,
ps, so far we have been doing algebra 1 review as an entire class.
