Be sure to review the teaching display on page 73 in Foundations following the initial presentation.
Ongoing assignment: Be sure to complete all ongoing assignments as the topics are presented in class. Assignments will be checked periodically and applied to your grade.
October 1, 2018 – New Topic SCIENTIFIC NOTATION
Remember the following are “ongoing assignments”:
(Refer to the meaning of “ongoing assignments” in the previous posts.)
After completing these assignments and study guides, you should be prepared to be tested on the next topic – Scientific Notation”. Formative assessments will be given intermittently. Summative assessment will be given after topic is complete.
SOLVING WORD PROBLEMS USING SCIENTIFIC NOTATION
For the summative test, you should be able to
