Finish the 2017 Free Response questions. We’ll grade the remaining problems we didn’t get to in class tomorrow.

# Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 4/25

We started Unit 9 today, a unit that is partially review and partially new content around exponential functions. Our first lesson used M&Ms to model exponential growth and decay. If you were in class today, you should finish the lab sheet for the activity. If you were *not* in class today, your homework is HW 9.1 – Investigating Exponential Functions

# AP Statistics Assignment for 4/25

Finish Practice Exam 1 from the review book. We’ll discuss questions **briefly** tomorrow, but the majority of our time will be spent taking a look at the Free Response questions from the 2017 exam.

# Intermediate Algebra 2 Assignment for 4/24

After your test today, you got the usual two-sided assignment. Do either side, your choice which, for a homework credit. Do both sides for extra credit on the test.

# AP Statistics Assignment for 4/24

Start working on Practice Exam 1, multiple choice questions 1-15 and free response questions 1, 2, and 3.

# Intermediate Algebra 2 Assignment for 4/23

Your test on Unit 8 is tomorrow. By now, you have been given two review assignments. Their answers can be found below. Work on these, plus some additional IXL review to prepare for tomorrow’s test.

## IXL Modules

# AP Statistics Assignment for 4/23

Finish the multiple choice from Topic 7 (p 191), then do Free Response questions 6 and 8.

# Intermediate Algebra 2 Assignment for 4/20

The instructions for today’s activity can be found here.

Your test on Unit 8 will be on **Tuesday, April 24**. Your first review assignment can be found here.

Also, many of you did not complete the IXL assignment from Thursday night. For shame! Please work on that this weekend. If you are having technical issues, please let me know. Don’t use that as an excuse to blow off this assignment!

## IXL Modules

# AP Statistics Assignment for 4/20

From your review book, read over Topic 7 – Probability as Relative Frequency (p191) and complete the even Multiple Choice questions and Free Response questions 2 and 3 (note that this is different from what I originally said on the review calendar I gave you on Thursday; it has been updated on the Google Document found here).

As before, check your answers in you book and come prepared with questions on Monday.

# Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 4/19

The instructions for today’s activity can be found here.

Your test on Unit 8 will be on **Tuesday, April 24th**. We will spend tomorrow (Friday) and Monday reviewing for this test. Tonight for homework, choose **any two** of the IXL modules posted below and get your score up to at least an 80.

Remember: your IXL username is your first initial and your last name, followed by “1@ithaca” and your password is “abc123” (some of you have a slightly different username, please email me or post here if you have trouble logging in).

Read the introduction of your review book (pages 1-3) for a brief rundown on the format of the exam and some pointers about how it is graded. Then flip ahead to Topic 4 (Exploring Categorical Data: Two-Way Tables, page 139). Read through the examples there and complete the Multiple Choice questions at the end of the section, plus Free Response Questions 1 and 2. Review the answers to these exercises at the end of the section, and come in tomorrow (with your book!) prepared with whatever questions you still want to ask.

# Intermediate Algebra 2 Assignment for 4/18

Today, we reaffirmed that the Expected Value is a **long-term** average. Meaning the results of a small handful of trials are unlikely to produce the same average as the expected value, however increasing the number of trials will produce averages more in line with what you expect.

## Today’s links

- Homework: HW 8.12 – Understanding Expected Value
- Lesson video: Calculating Expected Value (this is the same video as what was posted yesterday)

Your Unit 7 (and last!) test is tomorrow. You got some review materials in class today, and you can find them uploaded here. Post here or email me with any questions!

# Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 4/17

We had a practice day today in solving expected value related questions.

Your final Unit test will be on Thursday, April 19th. As with the Unit 6 test, you will be asked to identify when to use each inference procedure you have learned up until this point, but you will only be asked to **do** the procedures from Unit 7 (the three Chi-Squared tests and the regression slope t-test).

In preparation, go to the review section for Unit 7 (pages 745-749) and identify the procedure, distribution, and degrees of freedom used for each of the scenarios in questions 6, 9, 11, 14, 17, 20, 29, 31, and 32 (all parts!). Then, please complete exercises 8 (abcd only), 12, 13, and 21 (b,c only).

# Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 4/16

We’ve introduced the last major topic from our unit on Statistics: the Expected Value. This quantity is a long-term per-trial average, that gives you a way of determining what a typical outcome of a handful of trials should be. This is an important tool in the field of statistics, and will be something you’ll see again in later math classes.

Read pages 715-729 from chapter 26. Skip the starred section on standard error of predicted values.

From pages 733-735, do exercises 28, 30, 49

# AP Statistics Assignment for 4/13

We’re almost done…

From Chapter 26, read pages 706-715, stopping at the section on “Standard Error of the Slope,” then from the exercises on pages 730-735, do 1, 7, 24, 35

# Intermediate Algebra 2 Assignment for 4/13

We’re starting in on the second part of the unit today, about Probability Models. These are ways of listing/organizing all the outcomes of a random trial and their, often unequal, probabilities. This will be the basis for one of the most useful tools in statistics: the expected value.
