As of Thursday of week 6 both classes have transitioned to new topics. I'll post answers to the exams as soon as I have created an answer file for them. Please put your emotions behind you and try to embrace the next set of topics with renewed fervor.

A special shout-out to the high performers from the junior class. Here are the top four scorers.

Algebra II is going to spend three weeks on linear equations beginning with 7 days of pure skills review followed by 7 days of applying linear equations. It is crucial that we focus on mastering the basic skills relating to lines, because they will serve as a basis or at least reference point for all that follows. Please find video links, our class notes (for the first seven days), and the homework below.

Video Links:

Slope

Slope-Intercept Form

Point-Slope Form

Standard Form

Parallel and Perpendicular Lines

### Week 6

Exam this week! Algebra II courses will have their exam on Tuesday, September 28 and Precalculus will have their exam on Wednesday, September 29th!. Please review all of the notes and problem sets you have accrued.

Algebra II:

Here are a set of videos that review some of the basic concepts on the upcoming exam. Let me know if they help! In addition, please find a copy of the entire set of notes we completed together in class here*:

Please find the homework embedded below!

### Week 5

Greetings all. You all recently received a report about your grades and how you are doing thus far in your classes. If you have any questions at all please e-mail me below or at my school address!

Precalculus will be doing a rather sizable packet as homework; it has been taken directly from a college algebra course. I will sight the source of the document after it is turned-in and provide a link to answers for it.

There will be no new powerpoints, but we will look at piecewise functions again so here is that presentation one more time:

Algebra II will be fine tuning their ability to interpret and apply function notation alongside of a more intense focus on interpretation of graphs with an emphasis on domain and range.

### Week 4

Believe it or not, we have already been in school for a month!

This Wednesday there will not be class, becuase of the college-prep day; take the practice SAT seriously and get a legitimate sense of where you are.

Algebra II has two powerpoints this week covering inverse functions and an overview of the set functions we will be covering throughout the year.

Algebra II Classwork (with Answers):

Algebra II Homework:

Pre-Calculus will continue to work on transformations and becoming increasingly more comfortable intepreting a variety of functions, specifically piecewise functions. Our baseline model will deal primarily with funections defined by "position, velocity, and acceleration."
