New Lesson – Week of January 6, 2020

SUBSTITUTION AS WAY OF SOLVING SYSTEMS OF EQUATIONS

  1. Complete Foundations In Algebra book- page 196, # 1 to 16.  These problems should be completed and were handed in for a test grade.  These problems will be used for testing.
  2. Progress In Math  book- pages 120 & 121 – read and be sure you understand the process required to solve systems of equations using substitution.
  3. Complete the handout that will be given in solving systems of equations by substitution.

New Lesson – Week of January 6, 2020

SOLVING SYSTEMS OF EQUATIONS USING THE ELIMINATION METHOD

Foundations in Math  – p.196, # 17 to 34

Progress In Math p. 124 to 127

Write several paragraphs describing the 3 ways to solve systems of linear equations.

INTRODUCTION TO FUNCTIONS

Use the Youtube presentations to note the important words that you need to ‘get the idea’

Be sure to fill in every example and do all the coached assignments.

What are the main characteristics of functions?

BE SURE TO NOTE THE SOLUTIONS AND WHAT STRATEGIES WERE APPLIED.

Write a paragraph describing what is needed for an equation to be a function.

What is meant by the vertical line test?

FOUNDATIONS IN ALGEBRA

KEY CONCEPTS TO REMEMBER

CHAPTER 6 PP175 /176 COMPLETE 1 TO 6. BE SURE TO DO THIS ON GRAPH PAPER FOR A HOMEWORK GRADE.

ALSO…….NUMBERS 7 to 16 (hint – use a mapping diagram to answer these questions).

On page 176….apply the vertical line test to answer questions 17 to 22.

Apply what you have learned to this point to answer numbers 23 and 24. IT IS NECESSARY TO WRITE WHAT YOUR RATIONALE IS IN ANSWERNG THESE PROBLEMS.

SOURCEBOOK SECTION 6/2 WRITING A FUNCTION RULE – COMPLETE THE “TRY THESE”, 1 TO 4

NOW… IN THE WORKBOOK COMPLETE ALL OF PAGES 177 AND 178.

SHORT QUIZ GIVEN AT THIS POINT.

Note well what content you are responsible for.

Be sure to complete:

          — Coach pages as assigned

— Progress book pp 137 to 140 – this is lesson 13

—Progress book lesson 14 pages 149 to 153

AT THIS POINT THERE WILL BE REVIEW OF ALL WORK AND TEST DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED DEPENDING ON HOW QUICKLY WE COVER THIS INFORMATION.

Early February:  AT THIS POINT WE WILL HAVE AN INTENSIVE REVIEW OF CONSUMER MATH

Looking at chapter 8 in the “old progress text 8”we will discuss all the content in consumer math.

After extended discussion of the content you are responsible for pages 230 and 231. These 27 problems cover all the computations. You should now be able to do the word problems.

All the problems will be done in our math groups. It is your responsibility to do the class work on loose leaf paper to be handed in with computation and explanations.

This will count for a major test grade.

Due date to be determined.

PROGRESS MONITOR QUESTIONS AS OUTLINED IN CLASS.

THESE ARE PROBLEMS COVERING ALL THE MAJOR MATH CONCEPTS YOU SHOULD KNOW.

Again, these answers must be explained.

Simply choosing a letter choice is not acceptable. You must support your choice with an explanation and/or a computation.
