Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 2/13

We have started the final phase of our miniature golf project: designing our own golf holes.

Your homework, due Friday, is this Right Triangle Side Ratio Practice sheet. You’re asked to find the missing angles and side lengths of various triangles, using the techniques we discussed in class.  Use the Side Ratio Reference Sheet, as well as this video you watched as a part of Phase 3 as a guideline for your work here!

If you missed class today…

Watch the following eMathInstruction videos and take appropriate notes. Note sheets can be found on this page (and yes, some of these notes pages may look familiar).

After watching these videos, you have a choice:

  1. Complete the corresponding homework assignment sheets that correspond to these lessons from Kirk Weiler’s eMathInstruction website (Lessons 4 and 5), or
  2. Complete the following IXL modules up to a score of at least 80

The last topic from this unit is an introduction to the concept of logarithms, which is a pretty big part of the full Algebra 2 curriculum, but not one that has a lot of focus for us in Intermediate Algebra.

Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 2/1

Today’s lesson was about solving equations when the variable is in the exponent. The trick is to get both sides of the equation to be in terms of the same base, which is why having a good familiarity with various powers of bases 2-10 is so useful (and why I’ve been quizzing you on these daily).

We expanded on the use of rational exponents today, this time in the context of using them to solve equations.

A reminder: because I want you to be able to work through this chapter without relying on the calculator, we will have a daily Powers Quiz. I will choose 10 powers from the table you made on HW 5.1 and ask you to evaluate them without using the calculator in a brief, timed quiz. We will do this every day through the unit, and only  your highest grade on any one quiz will be the one used in your Unit 5 grade.

More work with rational exponents today, including evaluating expressions that include them.
