Group Test 2/11-12 Key
Second Semester Changes
Change in stamp policy- I will not be stamping for the Investigations anymore. Instead, I will be stamping for the warm-up. Students need to be seated an actively working on the warm-up (must have attempted to solve it, not just written it down) when I come around to stamp shortly after the bell rings.
Retaking tests- This policy remains the same, except that students must show they have completed the assignment associated with the test they are retaking before they will be allowed to retake.

Unit 3- Inverses
AA3-3 Finding and Checking Inverses Algebraically Investigation and Practice, Keys, Video *the back side of the investigation will serve well as the notes for finding inverses algebraically. I advise students to glue that into their notebook once it is stamped off.
AA3-4 Using a Composite Function to Check an Inverse Investigation and Practice, Key, Video (the composite part starts around 10 minutes) Other video (composite part starts around 12:30 or so... I'm not sure which video is more helpful)
Unit 2- Parent Graphs and their Transformations
Unit 2 Test will be October 30 (B-day) and 31st (A-day)
Midterm Review, Midterm Review Key
Unit 1- Equations and Inequalities
Formative assessment- results for these should be posted to Synergy by 9/22, but will not impact students' grades
AA1-5 Solving Systems of Quadratic Equations by Graphing Key
AA1-6 Solving Systems of Quadratic Equations Algebraically Notes, Worksheet, Key, Video Several review activities were needed for this section; students may need to refer to review notes for solving quadratics using zero product property or quadratic formula, or solving quadratics when x can be isolated , the video is very long and covers solving quadratics algebraically as well
AA1-9 Nonlinear Inequalities (covering Quadratic and Radical Inequalities) Video
Unit 1 Summative Test is scheduled for October 1st and 2nd.
