10/15

In Class–Ms. Dula went over Lesson 26 on arithmatic series and sequences. Hwk is to follow agenda and study for test.

Study Block–Ms. Lezlie reviewed the class for the 1st Nine Weeks Exam, which is next week. I will send an email with specific problems to practice in the next day or so.

Study Sessions for Test: Thursday, 10/17, 8 am – 8:30 am in D210; Thursday, 10/17, 12:15 pm – 1 pm in D204. Tuesday, 10/22, 8 am – 8:30 am in D210.

Students may begin their exam on Tuesday, 10/22, in D220 with Ms. Dula and Ms. Kim at 8 am. At 8:30 am, students will move to D210 to continue the exam. The test will be 80 minutes of class time. The remaining time will be ACT Prep with Algebra 2. If you come at 8:30 am, you will have almost 2 full hours to test.

10/8–In class: we went over lesson 29 and worked most of the problems on Lesson Sheet A again. Hwk is to follow the agenda. Work on the ACT skill we just went over–Plug In Your Own Number. Finish the handout. Students will turn in their ACT work next week–the Aug/Sept Review handout.

10/1– In class: we went over Lesson 28 and worked most of the problems on Lesson Sheet A (I think). Hwk is to follow the agenda. Work on the ACT skills we are developing!!

9/24–In class: we went over lesson 22 on natural logs. We worked several problems and went over more rules that govern logs and ln’s. Hwk is to follow agenda–Remember–only required to work the problems on the backside of each lesson sheet. No graphing and no factoring of ln’s are required–I would like each of you to try the factoring ones, but don’t stress them.

ACT–#1 – 20 on separate sheet of paper from ACT Prep book. We talked about that book today…Practice using the calculator and PITA on those problems.

Follow agenda.

9/17–In class–we went over lesson 21 on Logs. We worked a lot of problems and went thru four rules. Hwk is to follow the agenda.

9/3–In class–we reviewed more of graphing functions using end behavior & intercepts. We added graphing rational functions–vertical asymptotes and horizontal asymptotes. Hwk is to finish hwk from last week and follow agenda for this week. Students also have 2 ACT wksts–one from the ACT prep time and one from the study block. If you need help on the wkst from Study Block, I am available before Tutorial Thursday or Tuesday. Let me know if you plan to come in for help so I can be in D210. I will take up a wkst from the hwk for each week during the next class.

8/27–In class–we did not finish covering the material for today. We will finish today’s lesson next week, so work to complete as much of the hwk as you can (follow the notes handouts I gave you) then bring the worksheets next week and we will continue with the lesson.

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. These are optional work but working through them will help with algebra skills needed on the ACT.
