Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 3/1

We did some more work with the law of sines today, and your homework is to practice applying it some more on your own.

Today’s links

  • Homework: HW 7.2 – Law of Sines Practice
  • Lesson Video – Note that this video uses an upside down version of the way we described the Law of Sines, but the math works out the same way! (this is the same video that was posted last week, but you can find others online if you want them)

AP Statistics Assignment for 3/1

Chapter 20 is like an extended “What can go wrong?” section from the end of each other chapter in our textbook. In short, even though we might do everything correctly—choose an appropriately random and representative sample of our population, gather our data properly, analyze it accurately, and correctly conduct an appropriate hypothesis test—we might still be wrong. If you missed class (or would like a re-explanation on the rather tricky circumstances that these errors might happen), check out this video. For a slightly more metaphorical take on this subject, watch The Story of Sad Sack and its companion video here.

This weekend, read the first part of chapter 20, pages 516-526 (we will have a reading quiz about the Just Checking questions from this section), then do exercises 4, 5, 7, 13, 17

Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 2/28

We started Unit 7 today, a continuation of the study of trigonometry we introduced in Unit 6, but now for non-right triangles. There are a handful of important relationships to know in this field, the first of which is the Law of Sines.

Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 2/25

As you’ve no doubt figured out, the project we’ve been doing in class is a review of Right Triangle Trigonometry, a topic you studied in depth in Geometry. The first part of this week is a formal review of the vocabulary and questions that you saw last year.

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
