Fractals & Chaos Final Day

Please watch the video posted here for the final part of the course. Play around with the application featured in the video here (though watch the video, first!). Thank you to Mrinal Thomas for developing this application!

Please also complete the course evaluation posted here by June 14th. Your feedback is very helpful for me to improve the course. Feel free to be honest!

Algebra 1 Assignment for 6/2

No Google form today.

Your homework is to finish the Topical Revew – Systems of Equations packet that we started in class today. If you missed the examples, I recommend you go to Kirk’s website and rewatch some of the videos from Unit 5 – Systems. Specifically, I would recommend you watch the videos for Lesson 4 – The Elimination Method and Lesson 8 – Modeling with Systems of Inequalities.

Algebra 1 Assignment for 5/16

We went back to Lesson 4 – Another Look at Linear and Exponential Models today. The homework, though, is a separate worksheet: Model Interpretation Practice.

Algebra 1 Assignment for 5/10

We have started our last unit before we start reviewing for our final exam in June. This is a very short one (see the calendar and unit information here), so it is very important for you to stay on top of things this unit as there won’t be much time to catch up if you fall behind.

We started with Unit 11, Lesson 1 – Function Transformations. The homework is pages 469-470

Algebra 1 Assignment for 5/2

Some of the biggest rewrites in the unit are happening now: we’ve essentially taken all of the remaining lessons and condensed them into two. Today, do the modified version of Homework 6: Bivariate Data Analysis. You may want to refer to the calculator reference sheet for a refresher on how to get a linear model on your calculator, or view the video linked below.

In class today, please refer to the student survey data found here.

Complete the homework assignment for Unit 10, Lesson 5 – Two Way Frequency Tables. This assignment is also an edited version of the original version from the workbook, but it’s close enough to the original version that Kirk’s video should still be useful.
