Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 1/7

First, a reminder of the homework protocol.

  • Homework is assigned every day and due the following day. Homework is assigned every day and due the following day.
  • Late assignments will be accepted ONE day late for half-credit.
  • If you are ABSENT FROM CLASS, you are expected to turn in the assignment you would have submitted on that day on the day that you return. You will be given one additional day per day of absence to turn in the assignments you missed.
    • For example: Goofus is present on Monday and absent on Tuesday. On Wednesday, he must turn in Monday’s homework, and he has until Thursday to turn in Tuesday’s assignment. He gets no extra time on Wednesday’s assignment; that is due Thursday also.
  • If you are having difficulty with an assignment, it is your responsibility to arrange extra help. We usually have time to discuss one or two topics in class, but if that’s not enough please come and see me!
  • New for 2019: Any student who has 3 or more unexcused missing assignments will be assigned a lunch or after school detention to make up the missing work. This work will or will not be accepted for credit based on my discretion!

Your quiz on the first part of Unit 4, all about rewriting radical expressions in Simplest Radical Form, is tomorrow. We made a study guide today, linked below, and got a review sheet that will be collected for homework tomorrow. The solutions are posted below as well.

Intermediate Algebra Assignment for 10/26

We spent some more time in class today reviewing the procedures we have discussed in class these past two weeks. The study guide we created can be found linked below.

This weekend, you should study for your quiz on Monday. It will cover all of what we’ve done in this unit so far. Some suggestions:

  • Read over your notes and the examples we did in class. Redo the examples and check them against your notes.
  • Work on the quiz review sheet and check your answers (links below)
  • Work on IXL review modules N.4, N.5, and N.6
  • Watch the videos with additional examples linked below.
  • Ask me questions! I’ve gotten a lot of complaints of “I don’t understand this,” but part of ownership is taking the initiative on your own to demand help to understand. Don’t wallow in self-pity of “Oh I just don’t get it.” Get mad! Say “No, this will not do! I am not satisfied with not understanding! Mr. Kirk, I demand you help me get this!” This will require your time and your effort, but that must come from you!
