## Algebra 2

## Welcome to Algebra 2!

11/10 In Class–we covered all of lesson 11 on Completing the Square. Hwk is to follow the agenda. Quiz next week will be on solving quadratic equations using factoring and square root method. I will stay after Tutorial next week (assuming it is ok with Ms. Ramona and review solving by factoring and square root method and completing the square (as needed by those who choose to stay for the free tutoring).

10/27 In class today, we went over review problems from lesson 7 and 8. Mr. Burgin worked on review problems from Algebra 1–simplifying expressions, exponent rules, etc. Hwk is to follow the revised agenda posted to GC for 10/27. Next week, we will be back on schedule. I am going to ask Ms. Ramona if we can do a tutoring session next week after Tutorial to go over simplifying radicals. That is a skill we will need over the next month or more.

10/13 In class–we went over lesson 8 on conjugates. Hwk was adjusted since we changed the test date (moved it due to fall break). The corrected hwk is on GC: We will cover lesson 8 in the book (Mr. Burgin) and review for the exam. Hwk will be to study for the text next week and complete lesson 8 hwk. The study guide and key are posted to GC. • 8A,B (1-8) • 8C,D,E (1-4,9-14,17,19-20)

10/6 In Class–we went over lesson 7 on imaginary numbers: simplify, multiply, add and subtract. In order to work lesson 7 problems, students must be able to simplify a radical, multiply variable terms, add like terms, foil and remember to pull out the imaginary number from the radicand. This lesson is a great review for the test.

9/27 In class–students took their next quiz over simplifying radicals and radical expressions. Then, in study block, they worked on a practice ACT test. In lecture, we covered module 6 and worked through many examples. Hwk is to follow the agenda and begin to review for the exam in a couple of weeks.

9/22–In Class–today we went over multiplying and dividing radicals. I did not work problems from the student book (there aren’t enough) but worked a lot of examples that mirror those in the book. After lecture, students took their quiz over complex fractions (remember–we quiz 2 weeks behind so that students have a lesson introduced, have the next week to answer questions and get help, then quiz over that material the week after) and added notes and problems to their IN.

9/15–In Class: We covered radicals–simplifying, adding and subtracting. I taught students the square root method. They have a notes sheet in their IN to follow and a handout that lists the perfect squares (1,4,9,16, etc).
