## PreCalculus

## Welcome to PreCalculus!

**Spring 2020**

4/28–in zoom class, we finished lesson 23. Hwk is to finish lesson and do ACT work.

4/21–follow instructions in GC for lesson 23 and trig worksheet. Complete ACT hwk.

4/15–finish lesson 18 in student notebook. Complete ACT science reasoning practice test found in the link. https://www.highschooltestprep.com/act/science/practice-test-1/

4/7–class updated in google classroom. I met with students yesterday via zoom and went over vectors. Hwk is the wkst 18 and sci reasoning practice test.

3/26–Class is updated in Google Classroom. I will meet with students Friday in Zoom for a review lesson on polar and rectangular coordinates. It will help if you have attempted all the hwk and watched the videos so that you know what questions to ask.

3/10–In class–students spent the Study Block in with the Alg 2 class reviewing equations of circles. Then, during the regular Precalculus time, we went over lesson 15 on Radian measure and I added the Unit Circle to that. After covering the lesson, we worked on ACT science passage–conflicting viewpoints.

Hwk–follow the agenda and complete the lesson sheets for Mod 15 and the Unit Circle handout that is stapled. Complete the Circle Act practice problems in the red student notebook and work through the Conflicting Viewpoints passages in the ACT Prep book (Tests 1, 2, and 3 all have this type of passage).

3/3–In class–students spent the study block with Algebra 2 reviewing distance formula and midpoint problems. Then, we transitioned into precalc lecture and covered the Law of Cosines. We worked several problems from the first lesson sheet. Finally, we worked on ACT content.

2/25–In class: students turned in their test corrections and ACT notebooks plus lesson sheet(s). Students stayed in Alg 2 for review of slope of lines and graphing linear inequalities. Then, we moved to D210 for precalc lesson. We learned Law of Sines and worked several problems form lesson sheet A. For ACT prep, we began looking at the different types of charts, graphs and tables that are on the ACT, how to read them and pull three facts–what are the axes measuring, units and trends. They practiced those skills on the samples in their ACT notebooks.

Hwk–Precalc hwk is to follow the agenda. ACT hwk is to practice reading the graphs/charts,tables from one of the ACT practice tests in their red ACT prep book.

2/18–In class–I handed the second unit test back today. We then went over several of missed problem types (not the exact problems) and students are to correct their exam and resubmit next week for partial credit. After that, we went over Lesson 11 and worked several problems from lesson sheet A. Finally, we added more info to the ACT notebook–how to tackle the science reasoning questions and linear equations.

2/11–In class–students turned in their test 2 study guide then took Test 2. After the test, students prepped their ACT notebook, too.

2/4 ACT DATE is 4/4. Please sign up on the actstudent.org site on or before 2/28. This test is a required part of Alg 2 and Precalculus. We will all meet and take the test at Union.

1/28 In class–we went over lesson 9, worked several examples and then worked through ACT problems and added more to the ACT composition book. Hwk is to follow the agenda.

1/21 In class–we went over lesson 8 (the start of proofs). I believe they were not enjoyed…We worked several problems from the book. Students needing more help should plan to come see me Tuesday at 8 am.
