I block Algbera 1 (Day 5) Thu., May 30 — Equations with Direction

Today: We worked through the homework problems again.  Since they set the first few up just like the examples, we looked at the examples to make sure we understood them first.  We filled out the charts and wrote the equations using that information.

Homework: Come by to look at your past tests sometime.  The exam will be just like them.  Also, finish 11-14 on page 163, which was the homework due today.

Next Class: I will see on the day of the exam next time.  That will be Wednesday PM (June 5).

I Block Algebra 1 (Day 4) Wed., May 29 — Direction Problems

Today: We thoroughly discussed your homework, and then we went outside to go over opposite direction problems and round-trips.  However, we moved too slowly to do the round-trip problems.

Homework: p. 163/ 11-14.

Next Class: We’ll see.  We need to go over setting up the equations, but we can’t take long.  We also need to go over your past tests, so you are prepared for your exam.

F Block Algbera 2 (Dat 4) Wed., May 29 — Logarithms — Take Two (or Three?)

Today: We learned more about logarithms and how to use them.  This site was rather useful: http://www.mathsisfun.com/algebra/logarithms.html.

Homework:   p. 450/ 7-21 odd, 27, 29.  Practice with the logs and start studying for your exam (Wednesday AM, June 5).

Next Class: We will study for the final exam.

  • Chapter 10 (Trigonometry) p. 693/ 1-71 odd
  • Chapter 11 (Circles) p. 695/ 1-6, 11-35 odd

Make a calendar for studying for your math exam!  You should schedule twenty to thirty minute blocks.  If you have a longer attention span, or if it takes you longer to get focused, make the time periods an hour long.

Next Class: We will study.

I Block Algbera 1 (Day 3) Tue., May 28 — Setting up equations for distance, time, and rate problems

Today: We went over the basics of the process of reading word problems to figure out the equation that matches the word problem.  Destiny and Sana were trains that demonstrated different rates and equal distances.

Homework: will be nearly impossible for most of you since you left your textbooks in the classroom.  Good luck with that!  You need to finish setting up the table and completing the problem for Quick Check 3 on p. 160.  Then, you need to set up the table and equation for and solve p. 163/ 9, 10.

Next Class: We will spend a little more time on some different types of equations and we will begin our review for the exam.  We have done Chapters 1, 2, 3, and 8.  We also talked a little about statistics last semester…  But I don’t think that will be included on the exam…  havent’ decided yet.
