We did some more practice with function transformations in class today. At the start of class on Monday, we will have a short mini-quiz on these transformations. You’ll have 3-4 attempts on this quiz, and your highest grade will be the one saved.
This weekend, practice some more with transformations using IXL modules P.2 and P.4, both from the Algebra 2 tab (linked below)
IXL Review Modules for Unit 11 (modules relevant to today’s lesson are in bold)
Over the weekend, work on the Multiple Choice questions 1-20 from Practice Exam 3 of the review book.
Also, take some time to review the conditions for each of the hypothesis test procedures we have looked at. There will be a quiz on Monday where I’ll ask you to name the procedure and conditions necessary for five scenarios.
Finish reading Chapter 15 (pages 400-407). Period 1 students should also watch this video to see the last part of the used car example given in class.
From pages 409-411, do exercises 39, 45, 47, 55
There will be a quiz on Chapter 15 tomorrow, Friday January 13th.
I’ve decided to push your quiz to Monday to give you a little more time to prepare. Complete the Quiz Review for a homework credit if you haven’t yet (refer to the solutions here) and take this extra time to catch up on old homework assignments that are not yet complete. As before, I also recommend you work on some IXL modules. I’ve highlighted the ones below that would be useful for you to work on this weekend. They are not required, but strongly recommended.
Take advantage of this opportunity to strengthen your skills. Post questions here if you have them.
Cumulative IXL Review Modules
We will have a quiz tomorrow on what we’ve done in Unit 4 so far, including sequences, proportions, unit conversions, and graphing/finding equations of linear functions. Complete the Quiz Review for a homework credit (refer to the solutions here).
In class, we took the day to catch up on missing work and to do some practice on IXL. I’ve bolded the relevant modules below.
Cumulative IXL Review Modules
Watch the PlayPosit video for Unit 3, Lesson 6 – Average Rate of Change and take the corresponding notes on page 143.

You’ll be permitted use of your notes, but please bring your Chromebooks also!

Finish reading Chapter 9, pages 242-246. From the exercises on pages 251-254, do 18, 19, and 30.
There will be a quiz on Chapter 9 in class tomorrow and, looking ahead, a test on all of Unit 2 on Tuesday, November 1st.
Today in class we started working with IXL, a skill practice website. We will use this tool many times through the year, but I would encourage you to use it on your own as well. Your login information is simple: just your first initial, followed by your last name, followed by @ithaca (for example, mine would be bkirk@ithaca), and your password is “abc123”
Your homework for the weekend is to finish any module you didn’t finish in class up to a Smart Score of at least an 80. The modules are:
Work on these over the weekend, and I’ll check your scores and check off the assignment on Tuesday.
Update on Monday, October 10: You will have a mini-quiz in class on Tuesday about checking solutions and equivalent expressions. Bring your calculators to school tomorrow!
Read pages 161-166, finishing chapter 6. This reading serves as a bit of a preview for chapter 9.
From pages 171-175, do exercises 27, 28, 29, 40, 47
There will be a quiz tomorrow on Chapter 6 that will cover scatterplots and correlation coefficients (but not the re-expression content from tonight).
In class, you worked on some IXL modules to prepare for Tuesday’s quiz. You should continue work on them (links below), but the assignment that will be collected and checked tomorrow is the Lesson 1 through 5 Quiz Review.
