In Honors we went through the basics of logarithms to get them ready for learning them in the future. They received their tests back and we will begin the new unit on Monday.

Today in academic we reviewed for the exam on Monday. We went through problems on white boards. Here are all of the notes. Here is the key to the review for the exam.

We are now back together in Academic Math II. We went through the variation homework after our warmup. We then went through solving rational equations. This involved getting common denominator, simplifying, and using reverse order of operations. We went through a bunch of examples and then I gave them their homework. We will go through more examples tomorrow. Here are the notes.
In Honors Math II they completed a talking day. After going through that, I gave them their review worksheets and told them to study for tomorrow. 1st block: We began with another IQ question and then went through our variation homework. We went through each problem and I had someone walk me through it. We went through why problems that end up like 12=5/x are difficult and how to solve them. We then went through more variation problems and practice until the end of class. I gave them Pg 3 Variation practice #10, 11, 12 for homework from the attachment. 3rd block Honors: We began with our IQ problem and then moved on to the homework. We went through the square root problems and then began the cube root problems. We went through the differences and similarities of them before finishing up with reciprocal functions. We discussed asymptotes and how they affected the domain, range, etc... Lastly, I passed out quizzes for them to take back and look at. Here are the notes pt 1 , and pt 2. 4th block: We began with our IQ problem and then went over the homework. Afterwards we went through our variation notes which can be found in the 1st block link. We went through all the problems on this link. Test will be Monday 10/23 for academic and Thursday 10/19 for honors. After a busy homecoming weekend we are all back to work.
In academic math II we went through notes on variation in 1st block. We went through the different types and how to differentiate. In 4th block we went through the notes on solving radical equations. This is 4-3. We are a day behind in 4th block due to the pep rally on Friday. We will catch up in the next few days. We will be testing on 10/23. Here are the notes In honors Math II we did not go over the quizzes, but will tomorrow. We did start a lesson on graphing radical functions. We went through all the pieces of the graph. We discussed the shape, the points, domain, range, asymptotes etc... I made a point to relate it to what we were discussing with the quadratics last unit. We will continue this and complete graphing reciprocal functions (inverse variation) tomorrow. We will be testing on Thursday. Here are the notes. We only got through square root and will finish cube root and reciprocal functions tomorrow. Today in academic math II we quizzed and then went through the following notes. 4th block is required to finish these notes and complete the 4-2 homework tonight.
notes Today in Honors we went through the homework and then did a kahoot on these radical equations. I do not have a lot of notes, but I do have the 4-4 homework number 4 answer to show everyone who may still be confused by it. 4-4 number 4 Today was the PSAT day so we didn't complete full lessons in classes today.
In academic the students received their tests and were to work on corrections or the homework for the class period. Students worked in groups or pairs to work on corrections. In Honors we went over their homework assignments thus far and I answered questions about the topics they have learned up to this point. We also completed another IQ problem. At the end of class they received their tests and were able to start corrections if they had time. The retest will be Tuesday 10/17 and the students must complete corrections and show me before they are allowed to retest. I was ill yesterday so the class went through some partially filled in notes and completed a worksheet. Nothing from that day will be anything to worry about as far as grades or lessons as I went over it again formally today.
In academic I passed out the notes/hw packet and they went through the first day with me. It was on monomial and exponent properties. We went through each example and then moved on to challenge problems. There was no homework tonight, but I did give them a worksheet to complete by Thursday in class and we will have a quiz on these rules on Thursday. notes In Honors we discussed the day with the sub and I told them they would be getting their tests back and apologized for not getting them in yet. Many of them stayed after to see their grade. Once class began we started with an IQ warmup. I am having them complete logic problems every day for the next 20 days. This is a fake IQ test and will consist of the types of questions that could be found on an IQ test. They must organize this and keep it together for the 20 days. I will not be posting these questions and will expect them to get anything they miss or lose from a classmate. We then moved on to talking about variation. I went through the notes they took with the sub and explained it all. After that we did some radical equations problems and I explained my method. Here are the two notes Variation Radical equations (should be fixed now) I apologize for the gap of posts. I have had a very busy couple days and we didn't take too many notes. I also apologize for not getting a hw key or review key up this unit. I will fix that in the future and will get it up.
The last few days of academic math II have been review days where we practiced graphing quadratics as well as solving systems of lines and circles and systems of lines and quadratics. We practiced word problems as well as inequalities. I made sure that we talked about every topic again and had time for questions and clarification. Today is the test so we will start our next unit on Monday. Wednesday was a review day in Honors Math II. We did a talking day as students led the classroom and went through problems. They received a review and we talked about it and other stuff before the exam on Thursday. I had time for questions before and then we took the exam. Some students did not finish, but I warned them this would happen if they were not adequately prepared. I told them to get better prepared for a retest if necessary. Today we will be beginning the new unit with monomial and exponent rules. We will learn the rules again and practice many examples. This is just an introductory topic to our unit. They will complete 4-1 for homework. Here is the key to PD3 Notes. Today in academic we discussed changing the test date until Friday. I told them that as long as the class on Wednesday went well, we would test on Friday instead of Thursday. We went through word problems all class. We discussed using the calculator for most of the work on these and learning to use it. We changed the window of the graph to work for the problem.
PD1 PD4 Today in Honors Math II, we began with a warmup word problem. We went through it and discussed what math terms represented each problem in context. We also discussed the flaws in some problems and how they aren't always good representations of the real world example they claim to represent. We discussed the limitation of quadratic models. We went over many examples and then went into graphing systems of quadratic inequalities. Lastly, we completed an activity on graphing quadratics on desmos. PD3 |
