HW: Start WS Review of 6.1 - 6.5 and test on Friday, 2/3.

Students used the first 20 minutes to complete the scavenger hunt from yesterday. Then students completed an 8 question quiz on radical & rational exponent equations. Students were also given a WS Review of 6.1 - 6.5.

Students received a practice quiz last Friday. They had the opportunity to check it with their tablemates and then we went over all 8 problems in class. Afterwards, students worked with a partner to solve a radical equation under a particular mathematician. The solution was found with a different mathematician. Students completed about half of the 15 problems.
HW: Complete any missing work and be ready for the Quiz tomorrow on radical and rational exponent equations. Test at the end of the week. Students used the laptops to play Kahoot that had 10 questions reviewing radical equations. Students also received back their radical equations quiz. We went over common errors. Students were also given out login slips to www.tenmarks.com so they can complete the online review of radical equations. Students were also given a Practice Quiz over radical and rational exponent equations. WS 6.5 Practice (1 - 27) was collected.
HW: Complete the Practice Quiz We went over questions from the front side of WS 6.5. We also completed 3 problems together on the back side and reviewed the graphing method on #16. Students had half of the period to complete WS 6.5 (both sides).
HW: Complete all of WS 6.5 Students completed a 3 question warm-up on radical equations. Then we went over questions from the back of WS Rational Exponent Equations. Students then had 20 - 25 minutes to complete their quiz 6.5..
HW: WS 6.5 complete the front side (1 - 14). Students completed 2 review radical equations. We checked these in class and most students did well with these. Then we checked the WS 6.5 Test Prep which will be useful for juniors and seniors taking the ACT or SAT. Lastly, we solved at least 8 rational exponent equations together. We showed that we could change from the rational exponents back to the radical form and solve or we could use the reciprocal power on each side.

Then students worked at the dry erase boards, solving 12 different radical equations. WS 6.5 (both sides done) was collected today.
HW: Please complete the review assignment on Page 389 2 - 12, 14 - 30, 34 & 36. We completed a quick review of questions from 6.1 - 6.4. Then students had 25 minutes to complete quiz 6.1 - 6.4. Students then had the rest of class to complete WS 6.5 Test Prep (1 - 5). This is due on Monday, 1/23.
HW: Complete WS 6.5 Radical Equations (both sides). Today we focused more on the graphing method for solving radical equations. We complete both sides of our 6.5 notes. We also went over WS 6.5 (1 - 10).
HW: Quiz 6.1 - 6.4 is tomorrow. Complete WS 6.5 Radical Equations (1 - 10). The back will be done tomorrow in class. Please turn in any missing work. We went over WS 6.4 vocab support and also checked WS 6.4 the odds. This was collected. Then students used strategies with their tablemates in solving a variety of radical equations. Students focused on isolating the variable (algebraic method) and then eliminating the root by raising each side to the index power and then solving a simple algebra equation.
