Monday- Simplifying, Adding and Subtracting Square Roots
Tuesday- Solving Quadratic Equations by Square Roots and checking by graphing
Wednesday- Solving Quadratic Equations by Factoring and checking by graphing
Thursday- Solving Quadratic Equations by the Quadratic Formula
Friday- Solving Quadratic Equations Quiz
Monday- Go over Friday’s Quadratics test, benchmark review
Tuesday- English 1 EOC. Afternoon classes will get extra benchmark review
Wednesday- Benchmark Review
Thursday- Benchmark. All Algebra 1 students not taking the English 2 EOC will report to the break room instead of first period.
Friday- Prime numbers, square roots, and perfect squares practice. We will be working with radicals on Monday.
We will continue our study of quadratics this week. I plan on giving a test on Friday.
Monday- Section 8.3: Graphing y=ax²+bx+c, real world applications
Tuesday- Section 8.4: Vertex Form
Wednesday- Section 8.6: Solving Quadratics by Graphing
Friday- Test over Section 8.1-8.4, 8.6
We will spend a few minutes each day to go over our last Benchmark in preparation of our next Benchmark, scheduled for April 12.
Monday: Section 8.1 Graphing y=ax²
Tuesday: Section 8.2 . Graphing y=ax²+c
Wednesday: Section 8.3 . Graphing y=ax²+bx+c
Thursday: Section 8.4 . Vertex Form
No School Friday
These last nine weeks will be extremely busy. We have two chapters, a benchmark, and the EOC scheduled for this quarter. Students: please check google classroom for all notes and assignments for any days you may miss. Parents: please remind your students to keep up with my google classroom.
Plans for March 19-23
Monday: Teacher work day
Tuesday: Quadratic Vocabulary Activity
Wednesday: Quadratic Vocabulary Activity, continued. Class discussion of vocabulary
Thursday: UIL meet, no class
Friday: Vocabulary Quiz, Begin Chapter 8: Graphing Quadratic Functions, Section 1
Monday- Make-up test, Begin Polynomial Chutes and Ladders
Tuesday- Continue Chutes and Ladders
Wednesday-Continue Chutes and Ladders
Thursday- Presentations of Games, Play Chutes and Ladders
Friday- Play Chutes and Ladders
What is Polynomial Chutes and Ladders? Each group will have to create a version of chutes and ladders by creating question cards over the polynomials and polynomial operations we have been studying these last few weeks. Answer the question correctly, you get to spin and advance. Miss the question and you miss your turn. First one to the top wins!
We are completing our study of factoring this week.
Monday- Special Factoring Cases: Difference of Squares and Perfect Square Trinomials
Tuesday- Putting it all together: Factoring Completely
Wednesday- Early Release: Begin review for 9 Week Test (Adding/Subtracting/Multiplying/Dividing Polynomials)
Thursday: Factoring Review
Friday- 9 Week Test and Turn inPolynomial Booklet
I know that things are really picking up and that students are very busy and many are missing class due to extra curricular activities. I am available after school on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays to reteach missed lessons or provide extra support. Please talk to your student about attending these after school sessions.
Tuesday- Apply the zero product property and factoring to solve equations in real-world situations.
Wednesday- Factoring trinomials in the form ax²+bx + c when a≠ 1. This is a skill that involves a very long process. We will slowly walk through the process for the rest of the week.
Thursday- Factoring trinomials in the form ax²+bx + c when a≠ 1, continued
Friday- Factoring trinomials in the form ax²+bx + c when a≠ 1, continued
I may give a short (2 questions, maybe) assessment on Thursday and Friday at the end of class to check progress.
If your student is going to be out this week due to extracurriculars, please have them check google classroom and make arrangements to see me to get caught up. This week’s lesson is very difficult to get caught up on by one’s self.
I am available after school on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
Monday- Polynomial Operations Test and turn in Polynomial Notes Booklet
Tuesday- Section 7.5 GCF factoring and the Zero Product Property
Wednesday- Section 7.6 Factoring Trinomials When A=1
Thursday- Section 7.6 Continued
Friday- Section 7.6 Continued, Quiz
Monday- Polynomial Division (no remainders)
Tuesday- Polynomial Division (with remainders)
Wednesday- Extra practice due to English 1 Benchmark in the morning.
Thursday- The Zero Product Property
Friday- Test Review ( adding/subtracting/multiplying/dividing polynomials + ZPP)
This means that our test will be on the following Monday. I usually do not give tests on Mondays, but I am forced to make an exception this time due to events that are taking large numbers of students out of the classroom. I could not test on Thursday due to the English Benchmark on Wednesday and I cannot test on Friday due to several students being out for extracurricular.
If a student is out on Friday and misses the review, it will be posted in Google Classroom for them to practice.
