Week 35

Algebra II will be doing some exploration of rational functions from The College Board. One is intended to review their prior knowledge of rational functions and apply it to solve a problem. The other is a review of polynomials applied to running a business and analyzing profit, revenue, and cost. I hope they enjoy it!! See the graph at right from the Rodale Institute explanation of effective pricing.

As promised, I have included a fourth quarter bonus project that allows interested students to get credit as well as learn some of the basics of computer programming using MIT's Scratch. Here is a on all aspects of the program as well as a wiki hosted by scratch that contains examples for blocks of code. Please find the project outline attached below. If you have any further questions just e-mail me!

Algebra II and Precalculus both have exams on Monday!!! Please take some time this weekend to prepare. Use the information on the blog from previous posts to help guide your studies.
