AP Statistics Assignment for 2/14

Finish reading chapter 19, pages 500-510.

From pages 512-513, do exercises 7, 9, 12, 13.

Finally, I want to give a test on chapters 17-19. Unfortunately, due to last Wednesday’s snow day and some other delays we’ve experienced, we will have to schedule this test for Monday, February 26 (the day we get back from break). It’s not ideal, I acknowledge, but it’s our reality. We’ll spend some time reviewing these three chapters on Thursday/Friday and I’ll have some additional practice material to distribute.

Intermediate Algebra 2 Assignment for 1/16, plus test warning

Our test on Unit 4 will be on Friday, January 19th. Please do not be absent on that day! If you know for some reason that you will be absent on that day, please arrange a time before the 19th to take the test! Otherwise, we will have to schedule a time for you to take the test during exam week!

Our last “new” topic from Unit 4 was a revisitation to the solving of quadratic equations. Recall that the decision to permit the square root of negative numbers was motivated partly by allowing all quadratic equations to have solutions, so today we spent some time talking about how to write/solve these equations. Your homework is HW 4.13 – Solving Quadratics with Nonreal Roots. You can find the notes here and some more examples in this video.

AP Statistics Assignment for 11/21

We didn’t quite finish reviewing the Chubby Dogs experiment, so you can find my answers here.

Next week is going to be an important one for us. Here’s what’s in store:

  • On Tuesday, we’ll be completing an Investigative Task for Chapter 12. It will be an in-class task, assigned and due within the class period. Please do not be absent on Tuesday.
  • On Friday, we’ll be taking out Unit 3 test, so while the review assignment won’t be due until Thursday, you may want to get started on it now: from pages 331-336, 1, 3, 7, 9, 11, 15, 19, 20, 23, 29, 32, 40, and 41.
  • On Monday, we’ll be starting on our midterm projects. More details about the project will be discussed on Monday, but you should get started thinking about ideas you’d like to investigate. Listen to the Freakonomics or Hidden Brain podcasts for some inspiration, or rewatch some episodes of Mythbusters (or check out the archive here). You will be working in groups of 2-3 for this project, no individual projects allowed without very special permission!
