Today we practiced for our final assessment by working ACE problems from the textbook:

Page 20, numbers 1-6

page 23, number 14 or numbers 23-26

page 46, numbers 10-13, 15

page 71, numbers 7-9, 15-16, 18-23

Assessment Friday. LT’s posted on previous post.

Students learned how to use the quadratic formula today. They continued practice with completing the square and applying the quadratic formula, simplifying the radicals as necessary.

Refer to previous post for learning targets for Friday’s assessment.

For Thursday, students should have unit 2.3 A and C done (4.2 was due today).

I can identify and explain what a function is.

I can explain how to determine a function given a table or a graph.

I can explain what the Range and Domain of a function is.

I can solve a quadratic equation using “completing the square”. (Students must show their work!)

I can solve a quadratic equation using the quadratic formula and represent my answers as simplified radicals. (The formula will be given to students. NO calculators will be used.)

Students worked on unit 3.2 sections A, B, and D and then ACE number 1 and 3 on pages 69 and 70 due next class.

**Learning Targets for mini-assessment on Friday**:

I can calculate (with a calculator) mean, median, mode, range, and MAD of a set of data.

I can answer questions about a set of data and justify my answer using measures of center (mean, median) and measures of variability (range, MAD) and displays of the data (box and whisker plots, line plots).

I can determine if a sample is representative of a given population.

We continued learning about representations of data. Today students reviewed box and whisker plots and practiced making them by completing unit 3.1 A only. Students should have notes on how to complete box and whisker plots.

Students were given the option of an extra 10+ minutes on their test or an additional 5 points added to their score.

We then launched into solving quadratics. Students received notes on completing the square. Due next class: 4.1 and 4.2

Students will work in Samples and populations unit 1.1 and 1.2(ABC only) during Wednesday and Thursday of this week. All students will work units 2.1 and 2.2 on Friday. They will glue notes in their notebooks about mean, median, mode, range and MAD. All work is due on Monday.

Students will take their Systems test on Thursday. Friday they will start Function Junction. They put notes in their notebooks and completed units 1.1 and 1.2 due Monday.

Students took their quizzes and MAP testing this past week. Students will take their unit test Thursday. They will start Function Junction on Friday.

Students finished up their quizzes and MAP testing so that they finally took the unit test for Shapes and Designs today.

No work due next class.
