Week 9

The quarter is winding down and another test is coming next week. This is likely the final test of the first marking period for both classes so please study, practice, seek help, and put your best foot forward in the coming week.

For Algebra II the exam will be on linear functions, primarily, and with some review topics from exponents and functions. The homework for this week leans on the problem-solving aspect of the exam and is based on problem sets from the book.

Algebra II CP Homework:
pp. 29-30 4-8, 14-50 evens (total of 21 problems)
pp. 37-39 8-30 (total of 22 problems)
p. 61 1-3, 7-8, 9-19, 23-25, 32-34 (total of 22 problems)
pp. 71-73 2-58 evens (total of 28 problems)
pp. 86-87 4-62 evens (total of 29 problems)

Algebra II H Homework

pp. 61-62 18-34 evens, 35-37, 46-53
pp. 72-73 16-56 evens
pp. 78-79 4-60 all
pp. 260-262 2-72 evens

In class we are continuing with the meaning of linear functions, revisiting consecutive integers, modeling with linear functions, and just plain more solving word problems:
