Algebra 1 Assignment for 2/17

Over the break, please finish the LIVE Debrief Assessment that you started in class. This is a take-home quiz, and as such is something that you should be completing exclusively on your own.

There are two versions of the assessment. If you played the role of the Department of Health Representative or the Virologist, you should be completing the Argentina version. If you played the role of the Geneticist or Medical Researcher, you should be completing the Uganda version. If you’re unsure which version you should be completing, please let me know.

You also have until the end of break to complete the IXL modules that were assigned as homework during this unit. They are in italics below. Check your Schooltool record for a note about which ones you need to finish.

Algebra 1 Assignment for 2/15

We started the live pandemic simulation today! Your homework for the next two days is to work on three IXL modules about geometric sequences. Spend some time tonight and tomorrow on modules P.1, P.3, P.6, up to a score of 80 or better. Don’t forget to log in!

AP Statistics Assignment for 2/15

We will be having a test on Chapters 17-19 on Friday, February 17th and will spend tomorrow reviewing. In preparation for this, you should do some more practice on exercises from all three chapters. I recommend the following (I will not be checking that all of these are done, but I will be checking that some are done):

  • From Chapter 17, pages 468-471: exercises 23, 25, 53
  • From Chapter 18, pages 491-492: exercises 22, 34, 36
  • From Chapter 19, pages 514-515: exercises 22, 24, 33

Fractals & Chaos Assignment for 2/14

We proved the necessity of fractional dimension today and derived the formula S^d = N as a way of finding fractional dimension. For the Sierpinski triangle, for example, each time we cut the baseline in half, we triple the number of pieces at that scale. So for Sierpinski’s triangle, S = 2 and N = 3, giving us 2^d = 3. Your homework tonight is to simply solve for d, which is the dimension of Sierpinski’s triangle (to be more correct, this is the triangle’s Hausdorff Dimension).

Algebra 1 Assignment for 2/14

Today in class, the infected countries were revealed and you worked to create the models necessary to track it. Tomorrow, we will start the live simulation of finding the cure and tracking mutations.

Tonight, complete the Pandemic Day interim homework assignment. You may want to watch Kirk’s video about Geometric Sequences to aid you on the back.

Algebra 1 Assignment for 2/13

Finish the third page of the LIVE Trial Run document. The questions are tricky, so do your best. We’ll review them on Tuesday.

We’ll be starting to run the Pandemic simulation in your LIVE groups tomorrow. You’ve been assigned a role that you will be filling during this simulation and you were given instructions about what that role involves. You should spend some time tonight reading over these instructions tonight and come in with clarifying questions:

Algebra 1 Assignment for 2/9

We have started Phase 2 of the Virus Pandemic project, where we are modeling as a class what you’ll be doing in individual groups next week. We are testing the process with the United States and are creating and graphing two equations: one modeling the number of people infected per day in the US and the other modeling the number of people still alive per day in the US. We are graphing these equations on the Heuristic Outlook for Population Eradication (HOPE) Display.

In both periods, we got as far as creating these two equations on the LIVE Dry Run:

  • For the Infected Model: I(t) = 840600(1+.0105)^x
  • For the Alive Model: A(t) = 318900000(1-.003)^x

We also started graphing the functions on the HOPE Display, requiring us to change the window to the following:

Unfortunately, the Xmax was not large enough to show the whole graph, so your homework tonight is to find a proper Xmax. That’s it!

Algebra 1 Assignment for 2/8

We have started a special multi-day project using exponential functions to model the progress of a virus’s spread through a country. The first step is to research a country using the Demographic Risk Assessment Form. You were assigned a country in class and may have your analysis already, but in case you didn’t please finish it tonight.
