We looked at how the order of multiple discounts (percentage and flat rate deduction) could give different outputs. For the best deal, always take the percentage off first and then the flat rate deduction second.

The second half of class students worked on a review of function operations & composition using Lumen Learning. The link is in the google classroom and students are to go through the first full page and then click next for the second page (which finds composite functions using tables and graphs).

HW: Complete WS 6.6 & the Lumen Learning (2 pages)]]><![CDATA[Function Operations & Composition - day 2]]>Wed, 04 Dec 2019 01:09:57 GMThttps://mrsseverson.weebly.com/honors-algebra-2-blog/function-operations-composition-day-2Students worked on 1 - 12 of Practice: Function Operations & Compositions. We checked this in class. Together we did 19 -27, which looked at composite functions using tables and graphs.

HW: Complete the rest of Practice: Function Operations & Compositions and complete the rest of WS 6.6. ]]><![CDATA[Function Operations & Composition]]>Tue, 03 Dec 2019 01:40:59 GMThttps://mrsseverson.weebly.com/honors-algebra-2-blog/function-operations-compositionWe started our notes on combining functions using operations addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. We looked at how to compose two functions and that the order of the composition matters. We showed that we could check our answers by using the desmos.com.

HW: Complete WS 6.6 (front side only). Retake for Test #5 must be completed by 12/13/2019.]]><![CDATA[Test #5 Radical Operations & Equations]]>Wed, 27 Nov 2019 05:26:19 GMThttps://mrsseverson.weebly.com/honors-algebra-2-blog/test-5-radical-operations-equationsStudents completed test #5. Those students who want to retake should start by completing missing work in listed in Infinite Campus in standard 3 (parents received emails on 11/24). Retakes should be done by December 16th. Our last test will probably be on December 17th or 18th.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving! ]]><![CDATA[Review for Test #5]]>Tue, 26 Nov 2019 01:59:34 GMThttps://mrsseverson.weebly.com/honors-algebra-2-blog/review-for-test-59930465Students had time to look over their Friday quizzes and complete the review they received on Friday. Solutions are posted in the Stream of your google classroom. We used the last 20 minutes of class to go over common questions on the review. We also reviewed how to solve by graphing with the TI-Nspire graphing calculators.

HW: Complete any missing work, including the DE Quiz Radical Equations. Test #5 (operations with radicals and equations) is tomorrow, 11/26. ]]><![CDATA[Scavenger Hunt & Quiz]]>Fri, 22 Nov 2019 08:00:00 GMThttps://mrsseverson.weebly.com/honors-algebra-2-blog/scavenger-hunt-quizFor the first 30 minutes of class, students worked with partner on a radical equations scavenger hunt. Students solved a radical equation and found their answer around the room, connected to a famous mathematician. During the last 15 - 20 minutes, students worked in pairs on the radical equations quiz. Students also picked up a review for test #5.

HW: Complete the review for test #5, which is on 11/26. ]]><![CDATA[Review - Jeopardy]]>Fri, 22 Nov 2019 02:54:45 GMThttps://mrsseverson.weebly.com/honors-algebra-2-blog/review-jeopardy8660132We went over questions on yesterday's circuit training - solving radical equations. This was collected. Students were given 10 - 12 minutes to work on their DE Radical Equations Quiz. For the last part of class we divided into 3 or 4 teams and played Jeopardy, which reviewed operations with radicals and solving radical equations.

HW: Complete the DE Radical Equations Quiz. Your paper quiz on solving radical equations is tomorrow, 11/22. ]]><![CDATA[Circuit Training - Radical Equations]]>Thu, 21 Nov 2019 03:49:47 GMThttps://mrsseverson.weebly.com/honors-algebra-2-blog/circuit-training-radical-equationsStudents had the whole class time to complete two items: the solving radical equations packet and the circuit training (radical equations). We completed #11 & #12 on the packet and this packet was collected.

HW: Complete the Circuit Training - radical equations ]]><![CDATA[Solving radical equations by graphing]]>Wed, 20 Nov 2019 02:57:46 GMThttps://mrsseverson.weebly.com/honors-algebra-2-blog/solving-radical-equations-by-graphingWe showed how to use the TI-Npsire graphing calculators to solve a radical equations by graphing. We checked our work on #11, 12, 15 from WS 6.5. We also went over questions from it and the back side of the Solving Radical Equations Packet.

HW: Complete the Solving Radical Equations Packet & start the Circuit Training - solving radical equations. ]]><![CDATA[Solving Radical Equations - day 3]]>Tue, 19 Nov 2019 04:13:38 GMThttps://mrsseverson.weebly.com/honors-algebra-2-blog/solving-radical-equations-day-3Students completed a 6 question warm-up on simplifying radicals. We checked this in class. Then we reviewed the methods for solving radical equations and when to use the 3 techniques. Students completed the 6 other radical equations on the warm-up sheet and we checked these in class. On the back of last week's worksheet 6.5, we discussed which 3 problems to use graphing (use desmos.com on 11, 12, 15).

HW: Complete the back side of WS 6.5 and complete the back side of today's warm-up sheet. ]]>
