Lesson (pdf)

Homework:
  1. Prepare for the final exam. Watch videos, review notes and/or assessments, work problems on braingenie, study with a family member or friend.

  2. Please take 5 minutes and fill out this evaluation of me.

  3. Go back and look at your goals for this year (should be in a blog post on your Algebra Reflective Blog during the last week of August if you did it on time.) How are you doing toward achieving those goals? Are there any of them you want to adjust for second semester? Are there any of them you need to revisit what you are doing to try to achieve them?

Scientific Notation Assessment Key  (pdf).


Your homework for tonight is:
  1. Complete step 5 of the Sleeping Pills activity.
  2. Check the portal for the results of your assessment and make a plan for retake (if necessary), including making an appointment online. You have to score at least a 4.5 out of 5 to be considered proficient. If you score less than a 4.5, then you'll need to come in and re-assess. (If you score a 4.5, you can also choose to come in and re-assess to try to get the 5 - I highly encourage that, but don't require it). If you score below a 3.5, then it will show in the grade book as "missing" (which counts like a 0) until you come in and re-assess at least one time. (It's really important to master these skills as we go along, which is why I put it as missing to make sure you come in and re-assess.)
  3. You can always head over to Braingenie for more practice on anything we've done so far.
  4. Continue preparing for the Final Exam.

Opener (pdf).

Lesson (pdf).


Your homework for tonight is:
  1. Prepare for the Zero and Negative Exponents Assessment tomorrow.

  2. Complete the Scientific Notation Pre-Assessment on the Moodle.

  3. Due Wednesday: Having Kittens

  4. You can always head over to Braingenie for more practice on anything we've done so far.

  5. Continue studying for the final exam. Seriously.
    As I mentioned previously, one video per day will be appearing on the blog. Obviously you can double-up on some days if you miss a day, but if you're willing to spend 8-10 minutes a day over the next three plus weeks you'll be well-prepared for the final. You don't have to work the problems (unless you want to), just sit back, watch and listen to help you review (you will need to focus, don't try to multi-task while doing this.)

    It's up to you.
