Welcome to PreCalculus!

Agenda Fall




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.

ACT–students learned how to use their GC to solve quadratic equations.  Those students that want to take the Oct ACT exam need to sign up online.
9/10    Today was great!  Circles and Ellipses are fun.  Students received a handout with the equations of each and then 3 wksts, one on ellipses, one on circles, and one on ACT problems for circles and ellipses (each had a key, too).
ACT prep–they received ACT Basic Calculator Wksts 2 & 3 today in class.  Students worked on Wkst 2 during study block with Ms. Jenna.  Wkst 3 is for hwk and will be turned in next week.
Hwk is to follow the agenda.  STUDY the formulas!!!


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.

Hwk–follow the agenda.  DO the ACT homework.  It’s important!
If you are absent and attend on Thursday’s, please stop by and pick up your Tuesday work so you don’t get too far behind.
8/20–I sent an email detailing today’s class and the hwk (follow the agenda), so check your email.
8/13–In class, we followed the agenda. I went over Lesson 19 plus the 8 types of functions.  We completed or almost completed Lesson 19A and one of the two additional worksheets.  Hwk is to follow the agenda.
In Study Block (the first 40 minutes after ACT prep), 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. We reviewed the first two today.

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.

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.
Seniors–you need to take the ACT every chance you get this fall, September, October and December (the December results might get back too late for your scholarship offers so know the requirements for each school you apply to).
We will take the national ACT exam in December and April–you are encouraged to take it more than that, but those two are required for this class.  More info to come.
