Ok this week we have gone over scatter plots and LOBF again and added on the idea of residual plots. You should have a good understanding of what a residual plot tells you just from looking at it. You should also know how to generate one. The summative for the statistics unit is 5/4. Copy and paste the web address in your browser to watch a video on residual plots

Week of 3/14
You have received your summatives for the Geometry unit. The last day to retake the test is the 28th of this month. If you are wanting to retake the summative please schedule a time with me this next week to do so.
HW due Moday If you were sick here is the power point that should help.
Week of 2/29
We took the summative on Wednesday for the Geometry in the coordinate plane. If you missed it the last day to take it is th 9th. We have started our statistics and probability unit. You should all have the Learning Targets in you notebooks
Week of 2/22
We wrapped up our Geometry unit and you were given a practice summative. We worked through problem 8 and will finish on Monday and the real summative is on Wednesday. You will have the whole class period to work on it so I suggest to bring something else to work on if you finish early.
Week of 2/10
Ok so we deviated a little from the plan to talk about transformations this week which I hope was fun for you. I also handed out a WS for you to practice point slope equations with. Also I think you should watch some videos on youtube. Search Point Slope. Also You were given a WS to help you practice transformation with
Week of 2/1
We talked quite a bit about perseverance in problem solving and thinking outside the box. We worked several problems from the home work and I hope you tried your best on every problem. There is no HW this week and we will continue on Monday with constructions and angles.
Week of 1/25
We have continued with the Coordinate Geometry unit and have completed the midpoint section. You have a packet due Monday for HW. The PPt link is below.
Week of 1/18
This was a short week. No HW due Monday. We continued with the power point and are now practicing Pythagorean Theorem. We also did test corrections for the exponential test that will be put in next semesters grade book.
Week of 1/11
This week we started the Geometry unit. attached is a power point you can go through to get cought up or review for better understanding.

Week of 1/4
This week we prepared for the exponential functions summative. We took this summative on Wednesday and then on Thursday we discussed some of the general difficulties that you had with the test focusing on domain and range.
Week of 12/7
Hey peeps, one more week to go and you have a long break! Hit it hard and do your best to focus on tasks at hand. HW due Monday is linked below. We have discussed and worked extensively with exponential graphs and finding the equation given a graph. Also Domain and Range and how to think about and find them. We talked about shifts in the graph and how its hard to see the growth factor when there is a shift. We have talking about compound interest with money and and why we would multiply a principle balance by 1.08 for example. What does the 1 mean? What does the .08 mean
Exponential Graphs to Equations
Compound Interest
11/30
This week we looked at exponential equations and defined Growth Factor, Growth Rate and Initial value. We looked at tables, equations and graphs and how an exponential situation can be represented in all three ways. You need to start practicing your skills with building the missing 2 representations given 1 representation of an exponential. Example: if you are given the graph, come up with the table and the equation.

We took the unit summative this week that focused on linear inequalities and started the new unit on exponentials. No Home Work
10/26
We have been working on solving systems of linear inequalities. We discussed why it is so important to graph the solution set. If you had an easy time with graphing inequalities then the systems will come easy. We are focusing on real world examples and there are 2(two) sheets due on Monday for HW. They are linked below. The summative will be on 11/4.

10/12/15
We have been working on solving systems of linear equations using the elimination method this week. We explored what happens when we add two functions together and discussed how the new function relates to the system. We also looked at what happens to a linear graph when it is multiplied. These concepts are important for elimination. Continue to work through the hand out. Systems of equations Elimination
10/5/15
This week we started systems of equations. I think this was the best section to jump to since overall the performance on linear equations was not great. We were interrupted with the PSAT test prep. I hope you all review the two documents that you worked through. If you lost it because you are disorganized that must be frustrating....but don't worry, I have attached it above.
Week of 9/21
This week we focused and prepared for the summative which was not as impressive as I was hoping for. The good news is that we are going straight into solving systems of linear equations and inequalities so you can still tune in your understanding of rate of change and different graphing techniques. I will have grades posted to skyward no later that Monday 9/28 Enjoy your break and come back ready to GO!

We started this year by taking the 8c final. It was evident that we needed work with order of operations so that is what we focused on attached are some supplemental worksheets for you to work on if you feel you need some extra practice. Next week we will be looking at linear equations in context and working toward becoming proficient in developing the equation that models the problem.

Week of 5/11
Over the last few weeks we have been working through our statistics unit and covering how to use tree diagrams two way tables, independent vs dependent probabilities, bar graphs vs histograms, box and whisker plots, mean average deviation and how to calculate probabilities. I just finished grading the summative and was very pleased with what I saw. Great job! Remember to sign up for the KHAN classes. You can start working on them now but they need to be completed before we start school in August. The second class code is 6S5D2P.

Week of 4/20
We have continued our exploration of exponential expressions. We have focused on how to come up with equations just from looking at an exponential graph using clues like shift, points and our parent equation y=A(r)^x.+C Below are the handouts one of which has graphs to practice on. We have also started to practice solving exponential equations with out the use of logarithms through finding like bases .
Also you need to sign up on khan academy. This is work that you need to have done before you can start Integrated Math 2. There will be two (2) classes that you have to sign up for. So far there is only one class I have not made the second class yet. The class code is 8DAK4U

We have continued our section of exponential expressions. We talked about the difference between geometric and arithmetic sequences and how to write recursive and explicit equations that give us those sequences (focusing of the geometric sequences). We had the rain forest activity and modeled the situation with an exponential equation and discussed how that equation was the same and how it was different from the explicit equation for geometric sequences. Wednesday was used for retakes and study hall. We are continuously keeping in mind our r value and how it relates to growth and decay.

We have started our section of exponential expressions. There was a rice activity followed up with a task where you had to figure out how much money you would get if you were given 1 cent the first day then 2 cents the second day then 4 cents the third day and so on for 15 days. You also came up with an equation that represented this situation. We had a summative on Thursday over linear inequalities. We looked at live graphs of exponentials on Desmos of the form
y=A(r)^x +C what does C do to graphs? How does r relate to the graph? A? What are special values of r and what do they do to the graph?

Continuing on building skills working with system of equations and graphing those systems, we are going to learn about systems of inequalities and discussing what values of x and y work for that kind of situation. There will be contextual problems that you have to pull the equation out of then graph then shade the region that "works" for the system. Remember that the solution set of a system of inequalities is not just one point but a whole region. Click here to see a video of Making a graph of the solutions for a system of inequalities

We are working on solving systems of equations using elimination method and setting two equations equal to each other. This first in class practice sheet was handed out 3/10 and was assigned for home work if not completed. We will be discussing how to solve these equations using the substitution method. Also what we see if the two function graphs are parallel or the same line, ie. no solution and infinite solutions.

We will continue to work with Domain and Range for warm up problems. You have been working on the Comparing Fairs task and that written paper will be our first summative due 3/2. This activity has introduced us to solving systems of equations which we will explore more next week. I'm looking forward to reading your letters! 
Week of 2/16
We have started our journey looking at special relations of x and y called functions. We have a good definition of what a function is and have the tools to tell if an equation is a function. We completed a packet that encouraged students to think about domain, range, and rule to come up with an explicit equation to represent the function. Vertical Line test
