### SLO information

**Earlier this semester, teachers posted information to their syllabi regarding the SLO (Student Learning Objectives) assessment and how it would be graded. This test was given at the beginning of the semester as a baseline measure and again recently to measure the student’s individual growth. The score at the end of the semester was originally going to be used to calculate part of the final exam grade. We recently learned that it is up to each local school to determine how to, if at all, grade this assessment. Upon further review, we have decided to exclude those scores from being calculated into the final exam grade. This may, however, change for the upcoming year as the guidelines are still fluctuating. If you have questions, please contact Mr. T.J. Perry at tommy.perry@cobbk12.org.**

Help:http://www.webmath.com/polymult.html

HW: Study for the unit quiz

Tuesday

It is quiz day, hope you have prepared for this assessment. After the quiz, you will work on more applications of polynomials. You will not receive any new material today.

HW: None

Wednesday

I am out of class for 3rd and 4th, so 1st will run like a sub day. I like to keep all of my classes on the same page if possible, The day will be filled with practice of current topics. I will give you an extra day on the dinner menu project due to my absence.

Help:http://www.webmath.com/polymult.html

HW: None

Thursday

The dinner menu project is due today! In class, you factor difference of squares and sum/ difference of cubes. You will need to be present if possible to learn how to factor, very important for the second part of unit two.

Help:http://www.purplemath.com/modules/specfact2.htm

HW: None

Friday

In class, we will start on factoring trinomials. We start with the basics and go forwards with more advanced factoring in the next few classes.

Tutoring: Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning.

Assessments: Quiz early next week

Monday

Holiday, hope you enjoyed the day off! I hope to get some much needed rest!

Tuesday

We will wrap up the let's be normal task with a focus on the SAT and ACT problem. Also, notes are given on sampling types and a matching activity of the type of sampling and the description of the sampling.

Help:https://www.statpac.com/surveys/sampling.htm

Wednesday

You are working on an individual project with partner assistance if needed. I will have a menu project for you to complete for a test grade.

Help: (not much on the web here)

HW: Menu is due next Monday

Thursday

We start unit two today, the polynomials unit. Today, we look at how to classify polynomials and how to add and subtract polynomials. I hope you know this material thus far and a review for you.

Help:http://www.mathsisfun.com/algebra/polynomials.html

HW; None

Friday

Today, we multiply polynomials, with a review of FOIL, binomial times a trinomial. Again, you will need to know your rules of exponents for the lesson today.

### CCGPS Advanced Algebra week of 01/06/2015

Welcome to Advanced Algebra! I will post each week by Sunday midnight tutoring times for the week , upcoming assessments and planned topics each day.

Tutoring: Friday at 7:45. Next week's tutoring may be different from my typical tutoring times due to course extension instruction.

Assessment: Quiz on Tuesday, 01/13 and test is tentative for Wednesday 01/21.

Tuesday

Welcome to 2nd semester! I hope you have a successful semester in math class, I will give some tips for success. I will spend time looking over your transcript to ensure you qualify for my class and if you are a senior, to make sure all 4 math credits will be met. The class will spend time sharing with me words, pictures, images to describe them. I like to get to know a student first before we enter the math curriculum.

HW: Purchase needed materials ( writing utensils, paper, calculator and notebook)

Wednesday

We will start the curriculum today, come ready to learn new material. we will start class with poster presentations, followed by mean, median, mode and range using data collected with height. Also, if time allows, we will create a dotplot and a histogram of the data.

Help:http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/histograms.html

HW; Secure materials needed for class

Thursday

It is day two of the unit, we will review the box and whisker plot and extend to comparision of box plots and histograms. I will review all parts of the box and whisker plot in case you forgot some parts of this topic. The comparison of the graphs is likely new for you.

Help:https://www.khanacademy.org/math/probability/descriptive-statistics/box-and-whisker-plots/v/box-and-whisker-plots

HW: Secure needed materials

Friday

Yes, we made it to the end of the week. Today, you will look at a normal distribution model and note the skewness, mean, median. Also, we will apply the Empirical Rule and answer questions of a normal distributed model.

Help:https://www.khanacademy.org/math/probability/statistics-inferential/normal_distribution/e/empirical_rule
