Algebra 2

August20

Welcome to Algebra 2!  This course is a continuation of what you learned in Algebra 1. If you have forgotten Algebra 1, that’s okay because we will review the first few weeks and bring you up to speed. What makes Algebra 2 different from Algebra 1 is that we will study many more functions. In Algebra 1, you studied mostly linear functions and you dabbled with the quadratic function. We will add to those absolute value, square root, cube root, cubic, inverse, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and polynomial functions. At the end of the year, we will venture into conics. So bring lots of paper, pencils and graph paper and get ready to learn.

 

If you are absent, click the link below to get notes for any lesson that we have done.  Look for the corresponding assignment that is posted on this blog. If you have questions, bring your notes and your assignment with you to my classroom in the morning.

Please understand that posting the notes is a courtesy. You may have to “phone/text a friend” for a picture of their notes if my notes have not been posted yet.

If you know you are going to be out for extracurricular activities, please get your work before you leave.

When you are absent, then # of days out = # of days allowed to return work.

Don’t forget to turn in the assignment that was due on the day of your absence on the day of your return.

Lesson Plans for the Week of April 6, 2020

April3

It looks like we are hunkered down for longer! So, I’m sending you to Khan Academy this week to finish up learning Exponential Functions. You should have received an invite from KA to sign up. I’ve scheduled it so you have a couple of days for the bigger sections. Each video is not very long, but I’ve given a couple days in case you have internet issues. I don’t mind you working ahead if you want to.

If you have been doing the optional work, then this will be a review for you. I will post the links to the videos on Google Classroom. Please do everything through GC unless you cannot access it and you have let me know that. There is a google classroom app that works well for iphone, not so well for android users.

If you cannot access GC, then the links are below as well. Those that have contacted me have said that they can watch the videos from the blog. If you have NOT contacted me and are reading this and CANNOT get into GC, you need to let me know ASAP. You will need to set up a way to communicate with me how you are doing with the material.

You will be working through the practice provided and letting me know how you did, BUT we are NOT taking grades at this time per our superintendent’s instructions. When he gives the go ahead, we will. In the meantime, we continue documenting that you are working through the material.

We need to think about setting up a ZOOM meeting so that I can answer questions and just visit with y’all! I am getting cheated on my school year with you!

Lesson Plans for the Week of March 30, 2020

March27

Hey, Everyone!

I’m in the process of moving to google classroom so that it will be easier to assign things to you. Please join your google classroom: rwq6owc    CONTINUE to check the blog to see the weekly calendar of what we are going to be doing, but hopefully I’ll have assignments that you can “turn in” on GC soon. I can monitor what you are doing better. If we go to online learning for the rest of the year, we will need to be on GC. I haven’t used GC, as you know, so please be patient with me. 🙂

Everything is online for the “This week’s to do list”.

See last week’s directions on the optional category.

Please make sure are doing something so you will be ready for whatever happens with school!

I do hope that everyone is doing okay. I haven’t heard a peep from anyone. Are y’all thinking this is a coronacation??

Send me an email or a remind if you have any questions.

Miss y’all!!

Day of the Week 🙂

This week’s to do list is all online or you can use the following worksheets: CV A2 Synthetic Division and Remaind Theorem

CV KEY A2 Synthetic Division and Remainder Theorem

CV A2 Evaluating Functions p. 1

Hey, Everyone! I hope you are doing well! I miss seeing y’all! It’s strange to not be at school.

I have offered an OPTIONAL section for this week. I have allotted multiple days to work through the OPTIONAL section. If you choose to follow the OPTIONAL section, then be sure to go in order–don’t skip ahead to a different day.

If you choose to the OPTIONAL section, then you DO NOT ALSO have to do the “This week’s to do list”. Do one column OR the other. Unless you are just so completely bored that you want to do both. 🙂

I JUST LEARNED THAT THESE ACTIVITIES MAY TAKE A WHILE. AFTER YOU’VE DONE 15 PROBLEMS, IF YOU SCORE IS AN 80 THEN FEEL FREE TO STOP!

Day of the Week 🙂

This week’s to do list you can do all online with the links given

or here is a worksheet:

See Update below. 🙂

I hope you are well!

Here’s your job for this week:

I am posting a link to a video that goes over what we left off with about exponential growth and decay. For this week, watch the video on exponential growth and work on 1-17 in the packet that you will find beneath the video. You can either print them or do the work in  your composition notebook. There are also practice solutions to check what you have done.

http://algebra2.flippedmath.com/91-exponential-growth.html

Check back next week for your next assignment! 🙂

NEW STUFF

Since we are studying exponential growth, here is an article on Corona Virus and how it has the capacity to grow exponentially unless WE do something different to “flatten” the curve. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/world/corona-simulator/
