After this, we shared some of our planetary designs, and then finished off the Nova Documentary from last week.

Tomorrow, we start our work on understanding the mathematics of chaos. Don’t miss it!

]]>- Review the Study Guide we made in class. I’ve made a video showing the solutions to the six questions here.
- Complete Test Review 2 (answers here)
- Note: I’ll be collecting both review 1 and 2 in class tomorrow for homework checks!

- Read over your notes and make a list of steps for each process we’ve discussed
- Rewatch some of the videos I’ve posted
- Simplifying (links to additional examples listed)
- Multiplying and Dividing (links to additional examples listed)
- Adding and Subtracting (monomial bases)
- Adding and Subtracting (polynomial bases)
- Simplifying Complex Fractions Video 1, Video 2, Video 3
- Solving Rational Equations

- Work on some IXL practice modules, linked below.

For Monday, please read pages 49-54 from your book, the section on “The Fractals and Chaos of Outer Space.”
