Exams are about over! Unbelievable!

I have enjoyed teaching every single one of you — for at least a moment! Just kidding! It has been my pleasure and honor, and I can’t wait to see how you change the world for better and channel all of your creativity and energy for good!

I will miss you and expect you to keep in touch and let me know if there is ever anything I can do for you!

Love you! Rest and play over the summer — every chance you get!

Love always,

Mrs. Smith

**Today: ** We didn’t have a lot of time — so short! But we were able to go over the first problem from the homework after talking about some general questions and how to answer them. We reminded ourselves that it all goes back to distance = rate x time, so we have to figure out how each problem can use that formula.

**Homework: ** Try the problems again! Use the tables and read carefully to see what the question asks. p. 164/ 9, 11, 13, 17, 18, 20, 21. Here is the list of topics on the exam: 1314 Akgebraic Methods A Semester 2 Exam Revision

**Next Class: ** We will continue working on understanding these problems.

**Today: ** We spent more time practicing solving traveling problems: round-trip, chasing (or catch-up… or ketchup) problems, and opposite direction problems. A small group of us went over the Quick Checks while the rest of you hopefully worked on your Quick Checks and your homework, though no one came to get those checked off…

**Homework: ** p. 164/ 9, 11, 13, 17, 18, 20, 21. Show your process and use a table to set it up easiest.

**Next Class: ** We will go over the answers and process for each of these questions. and begin our review for your big test on Friday.

**Today: ** We worked on a worksheet that required you to simply by adding, subtracting, distributing, and FOIL-ing radical expressions. We also looked, briefly, at solving radical equations. We looked at how some equations can have extraneous solutions, so we have to check our answers every time to make sure.

**Homework: ** I think you did enough on the worksheet. If you didn’t finish, you might want to do a few more on that. Practice a few problems with the equations: p. 632/ 2-10 even, 22, 28. You can try 43 if you really want to see if you understand what to do! 🙂

**Next Class: ** Review a little more about equations and begin our review before the exam.
