11/26 Thanksgiving Break

11/5 In class–we went over how to solve quadratic equations by factoring and square root method. I handed out a worksheet packet (with answers) for hwk. Hwk–follow the agenda. This material is review. Next week we start new content.

10/29–In class–students took exam 1 then went over test questions afterwards with Ms. Dula. Hwk is to follow agenda. Students will retest to correct problems missed on the test. Any tests not retaken before 11/12 will be taken on 11/12 during class.

10/22–In class–we went over lesson 14 on percents and learned how to work % problems using the box method. We applied this to increase and decrease percent problems, too. Hwk is to follow the agenda and study for the test next week. Students were given a study guide and an answer key a few weeks ago.

10/15

10/8 Before Tutorial–Ms. Dula was available to tutor/requiz. Our morning tutoring numbers are shrinking…take advantage of this free tutoring time.

In class–we covered lesson 8 on conjugates and completed most of Lesson Sheet A.

Hwk–follow the agenda. Prep for Lesson Quiz 8–questions come directly from your lesson sheets. Do the homework, rework the problems to prepare. The quiz will not have ‘review’ questions, only questions on the current lesson.

10/1 Before Tutorial–Ms. Dula was available to tutor students and give students quiz retakes.

In class–we covered lesson 7 on imaginary numbers.

Hwk–Follow the agenda. Prepare for Quiz 7 over the notes and problems from the lesson sheets. Remember, the questions on the quizzes come directly from your lesson sheets!

9/24 Before Tutorial–Ms. Dula tutored students and administered some make up factoring quizzes. Only about 5 or so came for early tutoring.

In class–we covered the next lesson, 6, on fractional exponents. We worked a lot of the problems from Lesson 6B.

Hwk–follow the agenda. Prepare for Quiz on Lesson 6 next week. You may come in for help Thursday before Tutorial with me or Tuesday before Tutorial with either myself or Ms. Dula.

Again, if you want to retake a quiz (which is what I want every student to do every time until mastery is achieved) please let me know in advance so that I can have the quizzes made, printed and ready.

ACT–students have Practice Test A that can be used for practice. We learned a new method today called PITA that students need to practice at home.

9/17 Before Tutorial–Ms. Dula worked with students on prior quiz questions.

Before Tutorial: Ms. Dula went over simplifying radicals.

Lecture: I handed out a notes sheet for Lesson 2 and Lesson 5 on Rational expressions and Complex Fractions. Ms. Kim returned prior work and we handed out Test 5A on factoring. Students turned in Lesson Sheet 5A-1 and Test 4. I then went over how to factor using the BOX method and worked problems from Lesson Sheet 5B-1 and Lesson 2.

Study Block: Students took the retake Radical quiz and the factoring quiz. I think they went over their formulas and worked problems until class ended.

Hwk–follow the agenda for hwk except complete Test 5A instead of Test 2. We still need some work to finish Rational Expressions and Mod 5.

9/3–In class, we reviewed some more on exponents, then finished factoring review and started simplifying rational expressions (which applies the factoring). We did not finish the lesson on rational expressions, so we will work on it more next week.

- 9/3
- In Class–finished factoring review and part of lesson 2 on rational expressions
- Hwk—2C, 2D, 2E, 3D (15,16), 3E (15,16), 4C (16), 4D (16), finish lesson 5 worksheets

- 9/10
- Turn in–Worksheet Lesson 5 (tbd), Lesson 4 Test
- Return–Quiz 1/3 Retake #3, Quiz 4
- In Class–Finish Lesson 2, 5B1 and 5B2 if possible
- Handout–Rational Expression Handout, Test 5A
- Quiz–Factoring
- Study Block—Quiz Factoring, review formulas, work 3 Solver problems, work on hwk
- Hwk–finish lesson 2 from last week, 5B1, 5B2, 5C (11-14,20), Test Factoring

8/27–In class–we began to review factoring expressions. We did not make it all the way through the lesson-we did not solve equations by factoring. We went over how to factor out the GCF and then the 3 types of factoring problems they will see: binomial (difference of two squares), trinomial and polynomial with 4 terms.

8/20–In class–we covered lesson 4 (mostly) on radicals. I worked several problems from lesson 4B. Hwk is to follow the agenda.

8/13–In class, we followed the agenda. We covered/reviewed exponent rules and scientific notation. We worked most of the problems from Lesson 1A and Lesson 3A. Students then had time in class to work on homework and ask for help. We began our formula memorization today, too. Students will be required to memorize math formulas that are helpful on the ACT. We will review these every week in class and add 2 – 3 per class. Students will be familiar with, and should know, most of these formulas.

I also handed out several notes sheets for students to use as review and reinforcement. Reviewing these and knowing the terms will help on the ACT for sure.

Lastly, we started the day with an overview of how the classes would work and began to discuss the ACT–what is it, what does it cover, why is it important, when we will take it, who needs to take it, etc. They have a handout that they need to complete for ACT homework. And, so hwk is to complete the ACT handout and follow the agenda. Call/text or email if you need help. Tutor will be available starting next week from 8 am- 8:25 am in D220.

First Class: Tuesday, August 13 at 8:30 am. Meet in D220 and bring your homework (summer packet).
