# Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 6/10

We are almost done with our topical review, but today I wanted to pause and reflect on what we’ve done so far, and spend a little time building up some of those skills. On the Algebra 2 section of IXL, I have starred several modules relevant to what we have reviewed up to this point. Your homework is to **pick two of these modules and get their scores up to 80 or better** OR **spend a minimum of 45 minutes working**.

We’ll move on to the last two units from the course – Probability and Linear/Exponential Models – on Tuesday and Wednesday.

# Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 6/7

Yesterday we did an activity to review the basics of right triangle trigonometry. Today we reviewed non-right triangle trigonometry. 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.

# Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 6/4

We had our pairs quiz in class today (if you missed it, you’ll be making it up on your own!), and so tonight’s homework is Finals Review HW 6 – Mixed Review. There is a small preview of content coming up, so try your best to do it now!

# Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 6/3 + Quiz Reminder!

There will be a **pairs quiz** in class tomorrow. In preparation, we spent a bit of time reviewing complex/imaginary numbers in class today, then spent the rest of class doing some review on all we’ve looked at so far.

# Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 5/31, plus Quiz Warning

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.

Also note: We will have a **review quiz** on Tuesday, June 4.

# Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 5/28

Your final exam will be on **Monday, June 17 at 9:00 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 14 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.

**Helpful Review Videos**

- Solving absolute value equations
- Solving radical equations (you can stop at the 5:00 mark, as the examples after that point are beyond what we will do in this class)
- Solving for variable in exponent using base equality

**Relevant IXL Modules**

- B.4 – Solve absolute value equations
- L.13 – Solve radical equations
- S.4 – Solve exponential equations using factoring (aka “base equality”)

# Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 5/24

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.

When we get back from the weekend, we’ll have only **three weeks** for review. It’s go time.

# Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 5/23

Your test is **tomorrow, Friday the 24th!** 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 9.21 – Test Review 3. The answers to all three review assignments can be found here: Unit 9 Test Review Answers.

# AP Statistics ANOVA Assignment for 5/22 (due 5/28)

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 slide show I used in class (the link to the site with the practice tables is here)
- ANOVA Homework – Due on
**Tuesday, 5/28**

- 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 highest value (e.g., there is no 35, so use 30).

# Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 5/22

Reminder: your test is on **Friday, May 24**. There will be calculator-forbidden and calculator-necessary components, so BRING YOUR CALCULATOR.

Your homework tonight is HW 9.20 – Test Review 2. Answers to all three test reviews will be posted tomorrow.

# Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 5/17

Today’s assignment is about deciding whether a linear or exponential model is most appropriate for a set of data. The short version is make a scatterplot and examine the picture. If it looks straight, use a linear model. If it looks curved, use an exponential one.
