Assignments:
Reminders:
1) Videos for each HW. Be sure to look in the instructional videos section for the videos assigned for each HW. You will be required to either fill in premade notes or make notes of your own if no premade notes are provided. These notes are to be titled and turned in with the HW in order to earn credit for this part of the HW.
2) For ALL HW you need to include a vocabulary list of pertinent vocabulary from each new section you turn in work on. Label which vocab is from which section to earn credit. Vocabulary should be defined in a way that helps you, personally: words, pictures, formulas, etc. (Any section already completed you do NOT need to redo vocabulary.)
3) For book problems, see HW guidelines (link above) on how to do this work.
Remember: Continue to do vocabulary for EVERY new section we cover and turn them in with the HW.
HW #1 Due: 2/20
Videos: For each of the videos/webpages write down the title on your HW and then write your notes below the title.
* Review slope definition and calculation: Definition: http://www.mathsisfun.com/definitions/slope.html Once you write down the definition, click on equation of a straight line and explore using the interactive graph. Write down what you learn. Calculations: http://www.mathsisfun.com/geometry/slope.html . Take notes on what you learned.
* Click the link here to read about roof pitch. Do you recognize something familiar? Read the short article, and write a few sentences about what roof pitch has to do with math.
* Solving two variable equation for one of the variables  watch this video and follow along by taking notes and doing the problem. Turn these notes in along with all the notes you made above as the video portion of your HW.
Songs: Watch and enjoy Rise up Run out; Another graphing song; Optional: Graph it song
Book Problems/Vocab: For the following sections: Make a list of the pertinent vocabulary for each section assigned below and write definitions for each. The definitions can be words, pictures, equations... whatever helps YOU understand it. Be sure to write which section each vocabulary word comes from. (Some sections will have more vocabulary than others.) You will be doing this vocabulary for every HW for every new section.
1.1 #9, 16, 39 1.2 #47, 50, 96 1.3 13, 26, 30, 34, 38, 52
Brain Teaser #1  from class  Draw a rectangle and choose lengths for the sides and ends. Draw the half line. Then calculate the distance for each versions of Mrs. Martinez's exercise. Use this to state your solution to the problem. Turn this in with HW #1
_____________________________________________________________________________
HW #2 Due: 2/27
Videos: *Watch the following two videos for rates: (1) comparing rates and (2) representing rates
Write the following:
1) For each video write at least one question or comments you have about it. For example: You can write something you understood that would be good to remember,
2) Also, copy down the actual problem that was done.
3) What do you notice about rate and slope?
*Learn (or review) how to find the equation of a line using pointslope form. Online video . Write out the example or do your own example problem.
* Function notation and Evaluating functions After watching the two video links state what g(x) means and EXPLAIN how to find g(3) if g(x) = 3x  7 + x . Now find g(4).
Song: Watch, listen and enjoy: Algebra song  function rap
Book Problems / Vocab: For the following sections, except 1.3, since it's already been done: Make a list of the pertinent vocabulary for each section assigned below and write definitions for each. The definitions can be words, pictures, equations... whatever helps YOU understand it. Be sure to write which section each vocabulary word comes from. (Some sections will have more vocabulary than others.)
1.3 #5558 all
1.4 #44, 46, 51, 61 (for part b skip the part about the slope addition property. Answer the rest.)
