CCGPS Advanced Algebra Week of November 17th

Tutoring: I have a meeting Tuesday afternoon this week, so I will be in tutoring Monday afternoon, Wednesday morning and Wednesday afternoon after 4:30. I will not have Friday morning tutoring as I will be out of school.

Assessments; Thursday is a test on unit 4B and test will begin immediately as test is only one day.

Monday
Today, you take notes on log properties and solve logarithmic equations. I will lead the class in a discovery of the properties.

HW: None

Tuesday
We are off to solve exponential equations today, a slightly harder concept to master than log equations. You need to bring your knowledge of logarithmic and exponential rewriting.

HW: None

Wednesday
It is review day and I will have stations set up with varying problems of the unit. You shall bring your notes of the lessons to use.
