Tutoring:

Note changes due to a workshop in North Cobb on Tuesday afternoon

Morning: Friday morning

Afternoon: Friday afternoon, Wednesday after my department meeting ( likely around 4:30)

Assessments: Quiz on Tuesday

Monday

Today, we look at an application of polynomials, area and perimeter of figures with polynomial sides. Also, we explore Pascal's Triangle, you will be asked to think deeply today.

Help:http://www.mathsisfun.com/pascals-triangle.html

HW: Quiz tomorrow.

Tuesday

You can shine today with a quiz on add, subtract and multiply polynomials. A second item on the quiz is a quadratic application and powers of i. Notes will include Pascal's triangle

Help:http://mathworld.wolfram.com/PascalsTriangle.html

HW: None

Wednesday

You will focus on the advanced Pascal's triangle. I will provide lots of help to you, yet I will make you think too :))).

Help:http://mathforum.org/dr.math/faq/faq.pascal.triangle.html

HW: None

Thursday

It is time to run composition of functions, as usual, I will let you explore the process and then discuss the approaches to find the composition. I will use lots of color in class today.
