Quiz first thing Tuesday on difference of squares, difference of cubes, sum of cubes.
To finish out this unit, you need to know how to factor using:
1. GCF and "normal factoring" for quadratics, with a=1 and a>1
2. Difference of Squares, Difference of Cubes and Sum of Cubes
3. Factoring by four term grouping when the degree of the polynomial > 2
Mon: Review then quiz difference of sq, diff of cubes, a not equal to 1
Tue: Four term grouping
Wed: NO CLASS (Wheeler holds school-wide faculty meetings the second Wed of each month.)
Thu: Review for unit test
Fri: Unit Test (Polynomials)
Here's the plan for this week. There will be a TOTD each day for a small quiz grade. Make sure you come to class!
Mon: Classifiying, adding and subtracting Polynomials; HW: worksheet
Tue: Multiplying Polynomials; HW: On PPT slides, which will be handed out
Wed: Complex #s: what is i?, adding and subtracting; HW: Part of Complex #s worksheet
Thu: Complex #s: multiplying and dividing; HW: Rest of Complex #s worksheet
Fri: Workday - Review for Quiz1 (all of the above); HW: Finish review sheet, check with key
Mon: Quick review, question and then Quiz 1
So far, you've done well showing me what you know in our quadratics review. Here's my plan for this week:
Tue: Go over class format with roles and grades (class roll is set now.) Practice solving equations.
Wed: Update summary sheet. Practice solving equations. Solving Equations Quiz.
Thu: Start Characteristics of Polynomials Unit. Practice figuring out what you can know without actually solving the polynomial equation. TOTD.
Fri: More practice recognizing. Kahoot. Quiz or TOTD.
