Week of 10/26-10/30/2015

Tutoring: I have different tutoring times due to an absence all day  on Tuesday for a school event and  Governor's Honors Interviews on Thursday afternoon. I will tutor Thursday morning and Friday afternoon. I will be available possibly some other times, check with me individually.

Assessments: Quiz on Friday , Characteristic project is due Tuesday

Monday
Today, we simplify rational expressions and multiply rational expressions. You will need to know factoring very well for both lessons

Wednesday
I will accept your characteristic project today, due to my Tuesday absence. Class today is how to divide rational expressions and a combo page of multiply and divide rational expressions.

HW: none

Thursday
 Today, we add and subtract rational expressions, you will have to think today and you need to know how to find common denominators. I will give some suggestions to assist in LCD.

week of 10/19-10/23/2015

Tutoring: Friday morning and Tuesday afternoon ( until 4:30 only due to homecoming and juinor class sponsorship) and Thursday afternoon

Assessments:Project based assessment on characteristics of polynomials


Yes, I am back from a math conference, hope all had a great rest of the week and a good weekend. I will count every sheet finished in class the past 3 days. If you miss any one of the days, see me for the work.

Monday
Today, we will review zeros,  domain and range of a function, extrema and intercepts. You will learn intervals of increase and decrease and end behavior.

HW: None

Tuesday
Today, you learn how to sketch a polynomial graph from the characteristics and combo problems on characteristics.

HW: none

Wednesday
We start off with a topic from unit three: Inverses with exploratory of how to find the inverse.

We are ready for unit four: rationals and radicals, a grand review of factoring today.

Help:http://www.purplemath.com/modules/factquad.htm
HW: None

Thursday
Day two of radicals and rationals: multiply rational expressions.

Week of 10/12-10/16/2015

Tutoring:  Tuesday morning and Tuesday afternoon only this week.  I am out of class Wednesday through Friday for a math conference.

Assessments: None this week, I will give a project on characteristics of polynomials as an assignment in my absence.The project will be a test grade for unit three.

Monday
Today,  class starts off with a card activity on polynomials. Also, you will explore graphed polynomials and the focus on notes will be  intercepts, extrema, zeros, domain and range.  I will have handouts to help with the notes.
Help:http://sites.csn.edu/istewart/mathweb/math126/poly_func/intro_poly.htm
HW: None

Tuesday
It is day two of characteristics of polynomials, focus is intervals of increase and decrease and  end behavior. Class will included an exploration of end behavior to determine the guidelines for end behavior.

HW; None

Wednesday to Friday
I have a sub all 3 days ( attending GCTM)  and the class will work on varied assignments related to polynomials. One item will be a project on characteristics of polynomials and roots of polynomials.  I expect the classes to be wonderful and to do all work assigned.

Week of 10/5-10/9/2015

Tutoring: Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning

Assessments: Most likely unit test on Friday

Monday
Welcome back from the weekend!
We are headed to learning how to write the equation of the polynomial from the roots. I will put you in discovery mode, think about factors.
Also, you will do the circle problem, my creation :))

HW: none

Tuesday
We are moving on to characteristics of polynomials, focus today is domain/ range, max and min and intercepts.
Help:http://www.purplemath.com/modules/fcns2.htm
HW: None

Wednesday
More characteristics today, zeros, end behavior and intervals of increase and decrease.  I will use lots of color in class today.
