Applications of Trinomials

We had an awesome conversation in class today, making connections to this real-world application of polynomial equations, linear functions, and 7th grade science.

Please come to class tomorrow with examples 1 and 2 complete.

Factor Special Cases

Today in class you will need to read through section 9.7 very carefully.

Then complete problems 3 – 22 and 40 – 45.

21, 22 and 40 – 45 are the most important problems.  Please take your time and show your work as you go through them.

A Different Strategy:

Please come to class tomorrow with the OTHER HALF of the worksheet complete.

Problems must be marked as correct or incorrect.  If they are incorrect, please be prepared to ask about them at the start of class.

Factoring trinomials with a leading coefficient…

Attached is a practice worksheet for you to complete over the weekend.  For each of the first 3 section (problems 1 through 21) complete half of the problems.

For example:  Section 1 is problems 1 through 6:  Pick 3.

You must use a strategy from class to make sure that all of your problems are correct before coming to class on Monday.  If one is incorrect, and you don’t know why, please tell us on the blog so that we can discuss it on Monday.

The Worksheet:  0734_001

New Tile Patterns and Polynomials

Here is a new tile pattern:

Using everything we discussed in class today, create THREE UNIQUE EQUATIONS to represent the number of tiles in any figure.

Then explain (using precise language) how each equation fits the situation.

Quiz Thursday:

We reviewed Exponential and Linear functions today in class.  Please complete the problem set tonight for homework.

Tomorrow we will review piecewise functions and transformations.
