On Tuesday, we will take our Team Test over Chapter 10. This weekend, please review our list of important concepts and skills from class today.
Please rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10 for each of the skills. Look for similar problems from the unit and check your understanding.
On Monday, come to class with a list of what you want to PRACTICE in class. Mr. Minsley will have work ready for you.
Today in class we reviewed some of the big skills from Chapter 10 as we played the game of Hot Potato!
Tonight, please answer these 2 questions:
- The equations in Problem 1 (in the packet) were both parabolas. Is (2, 12) the ONLY intersection point? How do you know?
- When I typed “solve” on my TI-Nspire for problem 2, it gave me the following inequality.
Did you get the same inequality? If not, find your mistake. SHOW YOUR WORK!
Sometimes we don’t have the algebraic skills to find intersections using equations. That is why it is so important to be comfortable with the other representations of functions.
Tonight, please complete the R&P for 10.3.2
In January, we began to pilot materials from CPM. They gave us the materials for free to try until May 1. With May 1st approaching, they are interested in how you feel about the math we have studied so far this semester.
Please click on the link below to answer a short survey about CPM’s Core Connections Algebra I book.
Today in class we studied the structure of different equations in order to PREDICT how many solutions a complex equation might have.
Tonight, please complete the R&P for 10.2.4
Today in class we learned how to “Look Inside” as a tool for solving complex equations. This is a great strategy, which focuses on the STRUCTURE of the equation.
Up until this point, you have always solved equations by “undoing” or “rewriting.”
By the way… busting fractions is fun too!
Over the weekend, please complete the R&P for 10.2.3
Today in class we began to study strategies for solving complex equations.
Tonight, please complete the Review and Preview for 10.2.1. Skip #27.
If you are studying for Thursday’s Individual Test over Chapter 9, the PARENT GUIDE is a great resource.
Tonight, please complete the R&P for 10.1.1.
Our individual test for Chapter 9 will be on Thursday, April 14.
Today in class you began to study Two-Way Tables.
Over the weekend, please complete problems 10 – 15 in the R&P.
Today in class we found a missing balloonist using systems of inequalities.
Tonight, please complete the R&P for 9.4.2.
On Thursday, we will take a Team Test over Chapter 9.
