We revisited solving quadratic equations today, now with the capability of evaluating negative radicands!
Tomorrow in class, we will have a homework quiz taking problems from assignments 4.10, 4.11, and 4.12
All InCA students will have a Homework Quiz on Monday of the following assignments (these assignments came out in different orders for different periods, but the numbering is the same):
- HW 4.2 – Evaluating Rational Powers
- HW 4.3 – Multiplying/Dividing Radicals
- HW 4.4 – Simplifying Radical Expressions with Rational Roots
Review the homework keys and videos for the past few days to prepare!
3rd and 8th periods did different things today (you’ll be aligned again come Monday)
We returned to our work with fractional exponents and used them to simplify radical expressions
Rational exponents are equivalent to radicals, therefore the shortcuts that we can use working with exponents extend to radicals as well. Today we discussed multiplying and dividing radical expressions.
You Unit 3 Test is on Thursday, December 19 and tomorrow (the 18th), we’ll have our third HW quiz covering HW 3.14 and 3.15
In class today, you got a study guide that we started to complete together. You should work on finishing that for tomorrow and come in with questions!
We did some more practice with solving quadratic equations today with a game of Trashketball.
Note: Tomorrow, we will have a HW quiz referring to assignments 3.9, 3.10, 3.11, and 3.12. We will also have a Mastery Quiz on solving quadratic equations.
We did one more Desmos Activity in class today to practice our identification and communication of a parabola’s key features. On Monday, we will have a homework quiz about Wednesday’s HW 3.3 and today’s HW 3.5.
Your Unit 2 test is on Thursday, November 14. We played a review game in class today, and tomorrow will be some time to work independently on review. We will also have a Homework Quiz tomorrow.
