# Solving Polynomial Equations

# More Factoring of Polynomials 3/23

# Multiplying Polynomials: 3/20

# Multiplying Polynomials

Today in class we learned how to use the area model, or punnit squares to multiply polynomials.

Here is a link to virtual tiles, if you want them at home: http://www.cpm.org/technology/general/tiles/

We haven’t looked at the strategy used for problem 16, but please look through it, and see if you can figure out the mistake. Tomorrow we will start class by learning more about the “vertical method.”

# Poster Data

Here is a link to a pdf with all of the student pages for lessons 12 through 19. You will need this for your posters: Poster Data

# Analyzing Residuals 3/10

Today in class we learned how to use the Residual Graph to determine whether our data is truly linear in nature.

Please complete the Problem Set for Lesson 18 tonight for homework.

PI DAY IS COMING!!!!!

# Residual Graphs: 3/9

Today in class we began to GRAPH residuals.

Please complete the Problem Set tonight for homework.

# Least Squares! 3/5

Today in class we learned about why Statisticians prefer least-squares over residuals.

Tonight, practice using the available technology as you answer the Problem Set #1 – 6.

# Residuals! 3/4

Tonight you will be reading about “residuals.” This is an easy piece of data to compute, which mathematicians use to determine how precise a line of best fit matches a scatter plot.

Please complete problems 1 – 8 tonight for homework.
