This was used as a quiz. Then we went over the study guide 5.1 - 5.3.

Test 5.1 -5.3 is tomorrow. Solutions to the study guide are on http://mrsseverson.weebly.com/algebra-3-4.html Turn in the study guide and any missing work by 11/21. ]]><![CDATA[Work day - review 5.1 - 5.3]]>Fri, 17 Nov 2017 23:23:58 GMThttp://mrsseverson.weebly.com/algebra-3-4-blog/work-day-review-51-53Students received an entrance slip that had 6 questions. They worked on them in class and we went over all 6 questions. Students picked up a study guide 5.1 - 5.3 and are to complete it (skip 12 & 16) by Monday, 11/20. Book 5.2 & 5.3 assignments were also collected.

HW: Complete any missing work from 5.1 - 5.3 (Standard 15). Test 5.1 - 5.3 is Tuesday, 11/21. ]]><![CDATA[5.3 sum and difference of cubes]]>Fri, 17 Nov 2017 00:00:44 GMThttp://mrsseverson.weebly.com/algebra-3-4-blog/53-sum-and-difference-of-cubesWe completed the last of our 5.3 notes on sum and difference of cubes. We completed the cubes puzzle and finding zeros worksheet.

HW: start the book 5.3 assignment and complete 1-14 from yesterday’s worksheet.]]><![CDATA[5.3 Factoring polynomials]]>Wed, 15 Nov 2017 21:30:41 GMThttp://mrsseverson.weebly.com/algebra-3-4-blog/53-factoring-polynomialsStudents received their quiz back from yesterday. We went over questions 1 & 2. Then we completed the front side of the 5.3 notes - doing 12 problems together.

HW: complete 1 - 14 on Worksheet Factoring Polynomials.]]><![CDATA[Quiz 5.1 - 5.2]]>Tue, 14 Nov 2017 20:25:12 GMThttp://mrsseverson.weebly.com/algebra-3-4-blog/quiz-51-52We played Kahoot to review end behavior of a given graph or given equation. We also went over questions from book 5.2 and collected it. We did an additional 2 factoring problems before the quiz. Students completed their quiz 5.1 - 5.2.

HW: Complete and turn in book 5.2 ]]><![CDATA[Review 5.2]]>Tue, 14 Nov 2017 05:21:41 GMThttp://mrsseverson.weebly.com/algebra-3-4-blog/review-52We went over WS 5.2 Practice & its back side (Test Prep) in class. This was collected. Then students had 10 - 15 minutes to work on the book 5.2 assignment. 7th hour received their test 4.7 - 4.8 back today. Those students who wish to reassess must complete the reassessment process & re-test by 11/21 (before Thanksgiving break).

HW: Complete book 5.2. Quiz 5.1 - 5.2 is tomorrow, 11/14. ]]><![CDATA[5.2 day 2 - multiplicity of zeros and graphs]]>Fri, 10 Nov 2017 23:28:06 GMThttp://mrsseverson.weebly.com/algebra-3-4-blog/52-day-2-multiplicity-of-zeros-and-graphsWe used desmos to see how multiplicity (exponent on the factor) affects a graph at the x-intercepts.

HW: Complete the Cat riddle puzzle that we started in class.]]><![CDATA[5.2 Finding Zeros of Polynomial Functions]]>Fri, 10 Nov 2017 03:11:05 GMThttp://mrsseverson.weebly.com/algebra-3-4-blog/52-finding-zeros-of-polynomial-functionsStudents completed WS 5.1 Test Prep and then we went over WS 5.1 and collected it. We started our 5.2 notes by using factoring to identify the zeros of a polynomial. We discussed factoring methods and using the ZPP to find the zeros.

HW: On WS 5.2 complete 1 - 9.]]><![CDATA[5.1 Classification of polynomials & end behavior]]>Thu, 09 Nov 2017 03:17:34 GMThttp://mrsseverson.weebly.com/algebra-3-4-blog/51-classification-of-polynomials-end-behaviorStudents completed the 5.1 Additional Vocab Support sheet in class which reviewed how to classify a polynomial by its degree and number of terms. We used desmos.com to investigate the end behavior of linear, quadratic, cubic, quartic, quintic polynomials with lead coeffecients that were positive or negative.

We came up with this generalization: For polynomials with even degrees, if a> 0 then the end behavior is up, up. For polynomials with even degrees, if a< 0 then the end behavior is down, down. For polynomials with ODD degrees, if a> 0 then the end behavior is down, up. For polynomials with ODD degrees, if a< 0 then the end behavior is up, down.

HW: Complete 1 - 15 odds and 16 - 25 on WS 5.1 Practice]]><![CDATA[Test 4.7 - 4.8]]>Wed, 08 Nov 2017 00:01:27 GMThttp://mrsseverson.weebly.com/algebra-3-4-blog/test-47-483039174Students completed their test 4.7 - 4.8. The study guide and practice test were collected with any missing work.]]>
