Thank you for your time and attention this year. I hope you’ve had a good year, and I hope that you’ve found your time in my class to be valuable. We’ve had a long year, though at the same time it really seemed to fly by!

Please complete the course evaluation form found here. These evaluations are crucial for me to improve the course content and structure to better serve my students, as well as to improve myself as a teacher. I read every response carefully. I am not collecting names or email addresses (unless you *want* to include your name!) so please be honest!

For AP Statistics students

  • Submit your written report and your presentation to me using the filenames “LastName.LastName.LastName.Final Project Report” and “.Final Project Presentation”
  • Make sure that your data sheets are linked in the appendix of your written report and the sharing settings are properly set so that I can view them!
  • By June 15th, please complete the peer evaluation form here. Submit a response for each member of your group, including yourself!

For Intermediate Algebra students

Your final exam will be on Monday, June 11 at 1:00 in the big gym. I’ve uploaded some final thoughts and hints about the exam here. Please take some time to look it over! Report to the big gym on Monday by 12:45 so that you can start the exam promptly at 1:00!

Two days remain…

Today’s review was of probability, the next-to-most-recent unit. Tomorrow will be a mixed review day, and Friday will be our last day for questions and notes. The time sure has passed quickly!

Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 6/5

Only three days left of review…

Today we reviewed Trigonometry, which includes both right and non-right triangle trig. This includes the Law of Sines and Law of Cosines, as well as the sine-based formula for area. Don’t forget about the ambiguous case of the Law of Sines, which arises when you’re given two sides and an adjacent angle (the dreaded SSA arrangement)!

There are not separate notes and homework assignments for this lesson, so I’m uploading both the homework and the answers. We started this work in class, and your homework is to finish it.

We played a game of survivor today to review simplifying radical expressions and evaluating logarithms. As a result, there are no formal notes to review from today. Instead, I’ve linked some of the materials from earlier in the year.

Your final exam will be on Monday, June 11 at 1:00 in the big gym. There will be several exams being given on that same day in that same place, so make sure you go to the right spot.

Naturally, we will be spending the remainder of our time in class reviewing for this exam. A rough schedule can be found here, though keep in mind that this schedule may change as needs arise!

Each day we will have a homework assignment, due the next day. I’ll post answers to these assignments as we move through review, so make sure you stay current on these assignments. DO NOT USE AN ABSENCE FROM CLASS AS AN EXCUSE TO NOT DO THE REVIEW HOMEWORK. There are only 11 days left. Use them to your advantage.

Your first review assignment is Review HW 1 – Solving Equations. This includes absolute value equations, radical equations with fractional exponents, and exponential equations. Notes and examples can be found in the notes document here.

Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 5/23

We had our Unit 9 test in class today. For your homework tonight, spend some time tidying up your binder. You can toss any warmups/openers you’ve been saving. You can also set aside old homework assignments, but do not throw them away! Keep them and review them for additional practice as we go through our review.

Things that you should keep in your binder include:

  • Any notes sheet
  • Review sheets
  • Tests
  • Any formula sheets or supplemental things that your math AIS teacher may have given to you.

We will only have eleven days to review for this test. It’s go time.

AP Statistics Assignment due 5/30

We finished the lesson on ANalysis Of VAriance (ANOVA) today, and you have a short assignment to complete based on it.  Please note that you really don’t need to do most calculations by hand; you can do them on the calculator.  The assignment will count towards your marking period grade.

  • ANOVA Powerpoint – the slides I used in class (the link to the site with the practice tables is here)
  • ANOVA Homework – Due on Wednesday, 5/30
  • F-table – for running the Scheffe Test.  Note that if you need a df that is not on the table explicitly, you should use the next lowest value (e.g., there is no 35, so use 30).

Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 5/22

Your test is tomorrow, Wednesday the 23rd! Remember that there will be a calculator portion and a no-calculator portion to this test.

Your last review assignment can be found here: HW 9.20 – Test Review 3. The answers to all three review assignments can be found here: Unit 9 Test Review Answers.
