We have yet another short week ahead of us, but I hope that we can really engage the material and deepen our understanding of mathematics.
Algebra II will be examining linear equations within the context of functions and addressing any and all misconceptions about linear relationships. We will spend these four days solidifying linear equations as a basis for a brief but rigorous investigation of systems of equations as well as the basis of our exploration of polynomials.
Homework is due in two weeks, October 21st.

________________________________________________________________________________________ Precalculus is zeroing in on linear programming. We started our investigation with a modified version of the National Council for Teacher's of Mathematics "Dirt Bike Dilemma" and will continue to explore it over the next six days. Homework is due in two more Fridays! A great deal of graphing and interpreting is involved so work steady and check-in with me regularly.Here is the link to the chapter from which the problem set came.
Please find the slides related to linear programming here as well and some exemplar problems to help guide you on your way.
