Algebra 2 week of 3.21.2016-3.25.2016

Tutoring: Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning

Assessments: Unit 4 quiz on Wednesday and unit 4 test is tentatively 3.31.2016

Monday
Today, you will simplify and multiply Rational Expressions.  A mandatory item is factoring any given polynomial.
Help:http://www.purplemath.com/modules/rtnldefs2.htm
HW; None

Tuesday
We move along to dividing rational expressions today, very similar to multiply rational expressions other than the reciprocal of the second fraction. Also, you will review for the unit quiz.

HW; quiz is tomorrow

Wednesday
It is quiz day, a day to shine brightly. Also, you will do some combo mutitply and divide rational exrpressions.

Algebra 2 week of 03.14.2016-03.18.2016

Tutoring: Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning

Assessments; Alternate Assessment for unit 3B is Wednesday and likely due on Thursday or Friday

Monday
Today, we look at characteristics of polynomials: End Behavior, intervals of increase and decrease, zeros, roots, intercepts and extrema.
Happy Pi Day!

HW; None

Tuesday
Today, we look at a mixture of characteristics of polynomials with a tic tac toe board. I will have two levels of the board.
Help:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEdK4NAy4sw
HW; None

Wednesday
It is alternate assessment day with given characteristics  to be identified for various graphs. I will give you three graphs to analyze, distinguished by level.
This will be a test grade.
Help:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9oFOBThQzc
HW; Finish the alternate  assessment, due on Friday

Thursday
We start the new unit of radicals and rationals today. Today, we look at factoring distinction cards and simplfiy rational expressions.
Help:http://www.purplemath.com/modules/rtnldefs2.htm
HW:  Graph Analysis is due on Friday ( tomorrow)

Friday
Today, we look at multiply rational expressions, factoring is key to this lesson.

Algebra 2 week of 3/7-3/11/2016

Tutoring: Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning

Assessments: Unit 3A test is Wednesday

Monday
Today, we learn how to write equations of polynomials with imaginary roots and how to find roots of polynomials with imaginary roots. The process is similar to the all real roots, just a slight change in the solving of the depressed polynomial and the FOILing of the roots.

HW; None

Tuesday
It is review day of the unit, class will be a review sheet in the form of cards and some polynomial cards.
Help:http://www.themathpage.com/aprecalc/factor-theorem.htm
HW: Finish Review sheet and study for unit test

Wednesday
A day to shine, test day! If you do my review sheet, you are ready for the assessment, the review and test are very similar.
Help:http://www.purplemath.com/modules/solvpoly.htm
HW; None

Thursday
We start the second part of unit three today, characteristics of polynomials. Class will be an exploration of polynomial graphs and a look at domain/ range and max/ min.
Help:http://www.purplemath.com/modules/fcns2.htm
HW: None

Friday
Yes, it is Friday! We look at zeros, intercepts and end behavior with a discovery activity for end behavior.
