InCA Assignment for week of 4/6

Update (4/10): I’ve uploaded my solutions to the Unit 2 review here. Please take a look at that, along with this video of me completing some specific problems from the set, and email me with any questions (or hold on to them for our next virtual meeting next week).

Update (4/8): ICSD has mostly finalized their plans for Distance Learning 2.0, and teachers are reviewing these guidelines and providing final feedback. You should start receiving some information about these plans very soon, if you haven’t already. Please check your email often for that information!

One of the changes for us is that our regular online sessions will be moving to Tuesdays at 1:00 pm. I have made a short form to explore your preferences about using Zoom vs. Google Meet; please complete it here.

As we prepare for ICSD’s Distance Learning 2.0, and our attempt to move on to new content, I want to use this week to review factoring and rational expressions (Unit 2). Your assignment is as follows:

This Week’s Assignment (my encouraged due date for all Required tasks is by 2:00 pm on Friday, April 10, however I am very flexible with this timing!)

Wednesday Zoom Meeting

On Wednesday, 4/8 at 2:00 pm, I will host another virtual get-together, again using Zoom (click here for the Chrome app if you’re using your Chromebooks, otherwise I recommend the downloaded version). I’ll post the link to join here and send it out by email when that goes live. Come by and say hello, ask some questions, or just chat. I look forward to seeing you!

Planned Agenda

  • Welcome/check-in
  • Questions from Unit 1 review (inequalities, absolute value equations, etc.)
  • Rational expressions mini-lesson + supervised Desmos/IXL work


InCA Assignment for 12/5

Part 1 of this unit was on creating graphs of parabolas and other polynomials, identifying their key features. Part 2 is more algebraic, focused on solving quadratic equations by hand and connecting the equations to the graphs more deeplyl. Today was a review of factoring and how that method of algebraic manipulation allows us to solve these equations.
