We worked on solving two step equations today. Your homework is to complete the back of the worksheet handed out in class today (two-step equation maze) We will work on writing equations on Monday and most likely have a quiz on one-step, two-step and writing equations next Thursday (11/6)
Ok... so this is the 3rd time I'm trying to post this today...
We started section 2.5 in our books today on proving angles congruent. We will spend the next two classes (next week) finishing this as well as paragraph proofs and flow chart proofs. That is the end of Chapter 2. Expect a Chapter 2 test on 11/10 and 11/12 respectively. (no school 11/11). Homework tonight is to complete pg. 100 # 20 - 50 multiples of 4 from the text.
We started Factoring quadratics today. when the A term is 1. We will cover factoring when A is not one on Friday. I handed out a packet of factoring that will be due at the end of class on Friday. You are to complete the examples that have the A term as 1 for homework and you will complete the examples where A is not one in class on Friday after we review the concept.
We completed section 2.2 today on conditional statements and their converse, inverse and contrapositive. The homework is 2.2 practice A
We worked on Activity 2.2.1 today on solving one and two step equations. I showed the flow chart method as a second way to solving equations. Most of you did not like that process. You do NOT have to use flow charts to solve equations if you like the 2 column way better. Be sure to Check your answers! Homework is 2.1 Practice A and 2.2 Practice B
We completed more proofs today. worksheet "writing proofs" there were 5 proofs on that sheet that you completed in class and asked me about. I then assigned "Segment/Angle addition: Basic Proofs" to be completed for homework. There are 4 proofs on this sheet. they are very similar to the ones completed in class. This sheet will be collected and graded next class.
We finished our discussion on exponents today and covered combining like terms, distributive property and multiplying polynomials (FOIL or the BOX method). Your homework is the Polynomials worksheet front and back.
We started chapter 2 today. We discussed inductive reasoning, conjectures, and counterexamples. The homework is to complete worksheet 2.1 Practice A.
First Quarter grades close on Thursday! Make sure all test corrections are done and all missing work is handed in.
We started Unit 2 today. The homework was Exit Slip 2.1.
We finished the Algebraic Properties and Proofs worksheet today and competed Beginning proofs worksheets that had the Statements provided. Your Homework is to complete "Writing Proofs on Your Own!" worksheet that requires you to write both the statement and the reason. There are 3 proofs on this worksheet. if it takes you longer than 20 minutes STOP. We will discuss them in the next class.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
