Algebra II Assignments:
1/9/19 Students were given an ACT Practice Test as a Pre-Test. Students were to choose 2 questions that they didn’t know the answers to. For homework, due Monday, the students should find out answers to the questions they listed. Turned in on loose leaf.
1/10/19 Module 1 Lesson 1: Students derived polynomial equations from sets of data. We do: Pages 1-4. Study vocabulary on page 4. HW: #4,5,6 Page 5. Students were given pages for the front of their Interactive Notebooks. They can start putting them in the notebook on page 3. The Glossary that they were given should go at the back of the Interactive Notebook. Page numbers must show in the notebook for reference. IN Module 1 IN Glossary for back of Notebook
1/11/19 Module 1 Lesson 2: Students will review multiplication of polynomials. We Do: page 7 Example 1. You do page 8 Exercise 1, We do page 8 Exercise 2, You look at page 9 example 2. HW is Review Vocab on p.10, Do Problem Set #1f, 2a and 2c. Remember to work on your Interactive Notebook.
1/14/19 Module 1 Lesson 3: Division of Polynomials. We do #1 page 13, You do #3 page 14 and #4 (Remember to use zero as a place holder) You do #5 page 15. HW #1, 5,11 page 16 but also remember to use zero when you need to have a place holder.
1/15/19 Module 1 Lesson 4: Long Division of Polynomials. You do page 19 with partner. We do Example 1 page 20. You do Example 2 page 20. We will do #3 on page 23. Do Even on page 21 and 22. Be careful when considering place holder use. Which method do you like?
HW page 23 #7 AND #8c on page 24
1/16/19 Module 1 L4B Synthetic Division. Not in Workbook. Only in Interactive Notebook. Interactive Notebook page M1P30, header “Synthetic Division” Then write: • Denominator must be 1st degree (x1)
• Coefficient of x must be 1 (1x)
Take notes on this page for the 1st video listed below. This is also the assignment in KHAN ACADEMY. Make sure you do it. It is worth 1 HW grade. Introduction video: Introduction to Synthetic Division
Why it works: Why Synthetic Division Works
Another Example: Synthetic Division Example 2
Dealing with Remainders: Dealing with remainders in Polynomial Division
Register for Khan and watch the video. HW is to be done using Synthetic Division. Page 21 #1&3, page 23 #2, page 24 #8a-e, not c.
1/17/19 M1L5 – Students understand the structure of polynomial expressions by determining the 1st and last term. We do page 25 and 26 together in class. We discussed PEMDAS. Read the info in your Interactive Notebook (IN) associated with M1L5, including vocabulary. You do page 29 #21. Read the instructions 1st.
M1L6 – Dividing by x-a and by x+a. Look at your lesson summary on M1P11 in your IN. Change those to division problems instead of multiplication problems and apply them to page 31. What about the ones that “aren’t on the list”? Let’s check out x2+a2/(x+a) Let’s add this one to the interactive notebook with a notation. HW page 34 (add any of these to your IN if you want), page36#2 (Weird. Ask for help if you need it), page 37#5
1/18/19 M1L7 – Mental Math. We Do: Page 39 Opening Exercise in groups. Mrs. Coats will help with Exercises 1a&b. You do page 40c&d with a partner.

You do page 44#1. No HW… just make sure you review algebra. (All of Lesson 5 is good practice!!!)
M1L9 – Radicals and Congugates. NOTE: “Simplest radical form” means that if you don’t have a perfect square, then the answer still has a square root symbol in it. It also means there is no radical in the denominator. We do page 49. You do Example 2 with a partner. You do page 51. HW page 53 #5a,b,c and #6a,b,c.
1/23/19 Students who turned in a partially completed Notebook will be able to resubmit tomorrow for additional credit. Exit ticket retakes end Thursday during Tutorial. M1L10&11

M1L13 Mastering Factoring. We did page 71. Read the lesson summary on page 74 (NOTE, ERROR! In Lesson Summary, the 2nd to last equations should read + a squared rather than – a squared.) and use it to help with HW on page 73 and #1 on page 74. STEPS: 1. Is there a GCF? Factor it out. 2. Is it a2 – b2? 3. Is it x2? Can you use completing the square or the quadratic equation? 4. Remember that the last digits multiply together to get the last digit. 5. Can you group it? Do the groups have a common factor?

MONDAY, OCTOBER 1st, Mid Module Assessment, HW due and Interactive Notebook Check.
What to study: The handout that had info about dilating with coordinates using the origin as the center of dilation. Be able to explain how similarity and dilations are related (using triangles). Know the definition of “not colinear.” Prove in a paragraph that a pre-image and its dilated image are similar (triangle). Know that when an image is similar to its pre-image, all sets of corresponding sides have the same ratio AB/A’B’ = CD/C’D’. Know that “algebraic” means the use of letters to represent numbers. Note that the only criterion we have learned to prove similarity of a triangle and its dilated image is the AA criterion. Know the formula for the area of a square. Know that the distance from the COD to the new point DIVIDED by the distance from the COD to the old point, EQUALS the scale factor (r). Know the definition of MIDPOINT. Know that when you dilate a figure, all sides change by the same ratio. If one does not change then it is NOT SIMILAR or NOT a proper dilation. Recall Pythagorean theorem. Use AA criterion to prove in paragraph form that two triangles are similar. Describe the construction steps of a dilation. In a drawing of an image and a pre-image, can you find the center of dilation? Review AA, SAS, and SSS Criterion for similarity.

Khan AA, SAS, SSS: https://youtu.be/7bO0TmJ6Ba4
L21 – Page 155 a&b. Use the Pythagorean Theorem. Page 156 Example 1 – for b, redraw all 3 and relabel. Continue with 157. Example 2. For the table at the bottom, show ratios in the form 3:6. For the table, you are not solving, you are just showing the ratios. Continue with page 159&160. Exit ticket will be very similar to page 158. MAKE SURE YOU NAME TRIANGLES IN ORDER OF CONGRUENCE. Right Angle Symmetry
L22 – page 163 #1-4. Pages 165 #6&9. Page 165. Page 167 #17, Page 168, and then #12 on p.169. Remember that when you are simplifying radicals in fractions that you need to get rid of the radical in the denominator.
L23 Page 173#4&5. Page 174 #6 Find All. Example 2&3 page 175. Page 177 #8&9
L24 Page 179 and 180. Page 183 #1-4.How to prove PT using AA
L25 – Page 185#1-3. Know definitions for adjacent, opposite, and hypotenuse. Page 185 #4&5. For page 186&187, you have a handout with the answers. Make sure you know where the numbers are coming from. You do page 188. Remember that you have learned 3 similarity criteria: AA, SAS, and SSS
L26 – Homework is the handout on Trigonometric ratios (front and back). On the top of L25 handout, add the headers Sin and Cos. Work with your ratios and your calculator so you can see where the numbers are coming from. Do page 200. Exit ticket #26 is like page 200. You need to understand how Sin and Cos are complimentary functions. Sin (Theta) = Cos (90-Theta) by that same definition, Cos(Theta) = Sin(90-Theta)
L27 – We do page 207 and 209. Mrs. Coats will give you a handout for your Interactive Notebook. It should be page 78. Review this page THOROUGHLY! Ask questions if there is something you don’t understand. Do page 210. Complimentary Angles mean that the two of them sum to 90o. Review the special triangle info on your Interactive Notebook page. 30-60-90 and 45-45-90 Triangles.
L28 – We do Page 213 and #2 on page 214. Important: Remember that you can draw an altitude to make 2 right triangles out of 1 Non-right triangle.
L29 – Tuesday – HW Handouts, Do page 219, Slope=Rise/Run. Review what a negative slope looks like.
End of Module Test on all covered lessons from Module 2 will be Thursday, 10/11. 10/11 will also be the deadline for exit ticket retakes, IN will be checked, and homework is due(including handouts). What to study for the EOM Test for Module 2: Make sure you do all the HW worksheets given Friday and Tuesday. If you don’t understand something, ASK! (Email me if needed) These are very representative of Test Questions. You need to know how to prove the Pythagorean Theorem using similar triangles. (There is a link by M2L24 above) You need to review Similarity criteria (AA mostly) and review how to use parallel lines and transversals to see which angles are equal. SOH CAH TOA. If two angles are complementary, what does that mean? What is the relationship between tan alpha and tan beta? You need to know how to use your calculator to get the ratios for the side lengths of a right triangle given an angle measure. Review Pythagorean Theorem. You need to remember that when you have a smaller triangle inside a bigger one… sometimes the bigger one gives lots of info. Draw them separately and see if you can figure out what the question is asking. Info sheet for day Academic Games was out is here. Right Angle Symmetry and Trig Intro
10/12 M3L1 What Is Area – Leaving a number as a radical or a fraction is more PRECISE than estimating or rounding as a decimal. If you have an unusual shape and you put a rectangle around the outside of it to calculate area, that is called over-approximation. If you put a rectangle (or triangle) inside it to calculate area, that is called under-approximation. Once you get these two values, you can add them together and divide by 2 to get the average, which will be a more accurate approximation than either the over or the under approximation. WORK: Page 1&2, pages 4&5, HW page 6.
10/12 M3L2 Properties of Area – Review Intersections (Overlap of two figures). If you have the area of two figures and they overlap, you can add the two areas together and then subtract the area of overlap. Otherwise, you would be adding the same overlap area twice. WORK: Page 9 #1-4 HW pages 12-13 #2-5
10/15 M3L3 Page S.15, Review principles on p19. HWp16& #1 p17& #2 p20 NOTE: If you have two different scale factors, the ratio of the areas = the two scale factors multiplied together. If a figure is dilated, the ratio of the areas = the scale factor squared. M3L3 Intro
10/15 M3L4 Page S.23&24. Review the definitions on page 26. Eureka describes the proving of the area of a disk as the inscription and circumscription of polygons inside and outside of a circle. As the number of sides of the polygons increase, the area estimation becomes more exact. The state standard shows the circle divided into pie slices that are placed in the shape of a rectangle with a length of 2rPi and a height of r, will result in the area of the rectangle being 2Pi r squared. HW#7&8 page 28 NOTE: Percent error = (Actual – Calculated)/Actual
10/16 M3L5 Page S.29. Hint for p29, use Pythagorean Theorem twice. Do page 30&31. Read and do page 34 Top and #1. Do #2 mentally, but you don’t have to write answers.
10/16 M3L6 Read S.39, Do page 40. Read and do page 42. Attempt to fill in page 45. Mrs. Coats will give you a copy of the correct answers for p 45 to go in your Interactive Notebook, but you at least have to copy it for HW on page 45.
10/17 M3L7 (General Pyramids and Cones and their Cross-Sections) Page S.49. For page 50, take notes as Mrs. Coats discusses. We do examples on page 51. You do page 52. Follow the same logic to make sure you understand what to do on page 53. Read and do page 54. REMINDER: STUDY YOUR INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOK! Online Discovery: (Use the sliders on the bottom right to see slices) www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/CrossSectionFlyer/
10/17 M3L8 (Definition and Properties of Volume) Page S.57, p58, Page 59 we will do together. Refer to handout on M3L8. Do #3&7 with a partner for pages 60&61. Read page 63 and 73 for HW. Be prepared to discuss tomorrow. Online Discovery:(Use the revolve button) http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/3DTransmographer/
10/18 M3L10 (The Volume of Prisms and Cylinders and Cavalieri’s Principle) Notes: Remember that to get the length of a new line segment, you multiply the length of the old line segment by the scale factor. To get the new area, you multiply the old area by scale factor squared. To get the new volume, you multiply the old volume by the scale factor cubed. Do page 73 and read/study all the notes in the workbook on Slicing and Cavalieri. You need to know the equations for the volume of a cylinder, a rectangular prism, and a triangular prism.
10/18 M3L11 (The Volume Formula of a Pyramid and Cone) Do page 81 and page 83. These problems will make you think. So…think and write! You need to know the volume for a cone and a pyramid and why the formulas work.
10/19 M3L12 (The Volume Formula of a Sphere)
End of Module 3 test – Monday, October 22 Know the value of tan 30o and what ratio it represents. Know the density equation and how to use it. Know the equation for the volume of a right cylinder and what all the variables mean. Know how to go from volume to mass using the density of an object. Know how the equations for the volume of a pyramid and a cone are related. Know how to calculate the volume of a cone and a hemisphere. Be able to describe and draw the solid created by a rectangle rotated around one of its sides. Be able to draw a right circular cone, a square pyramid, and a sphere. Know that a sphere sliced through the center will have the area that uses the radius value, but if sliced in another plane parallel to a center slice, it will have a smaller radius value to be used in the area calculation.
Started Module 4 on Tuesday, 10/23. It is short and most of it is review, so it will go fast. To get a head start, review slope and linear equation in slope-intercept form. This website can help: https://www.mathsisfun.com/algebra/line-parallel-perpendicular.html Week of 10/23, we will cover all of M4. Students should be doing 2 or 3 lessons worth of HW per night.
L1 – Page 1 & 2. Use graph paper. Distance formula. Speed or rate is distance/time. Refer to the link above if you are having trouble. Video on distance formla: https://www.khanacademy.org/math/basic-geo/basic-geometry-pythagorean-theorem/pythagorean-theorem-distance/v/distance-formula
L4 -Page 19. Use graph paper for the Exploratory challenge. Do page 20 using a transparency. Remember that the slope of a perpendicular line is the negative reciprocal of the original slope. The table for your interactive notebook is about revolving around the origin. Be careful. Is the question asking you to revolve around the origin or around another point?
L5 – pages 23, 24 (Use graph paper) and p 25. Use graph paper. Slope can prove angles, just as angles can prove slope. This still focuses on the ratios for similar triangles, Sin, Cos, Tan. If you have the slope and one point, you can use the slope-intercept form and solve for the y-intercept.
L6 – Do page 27 and 29. It is a little harder but still the same concepts. Reminder that translations should be the same size as the original image.
L7 – ALGEBRA! Page 31 and 32. Remember that slope intercept has y “by itself.” So, if you solve for y and get the equation in y=mx+b, you can tell what the slope and y-intersept are. SOLVE FOR Y!
L8 – page 35.
L9 – pages 41&42. Reminder: Use the distance formula. See if you can figure it out in your groups in class.
L10 – page 47 and 49 with any method you like. Note: Decomposing means taking a large area and then subtracting out the areas that you are not interested in. (Note that the same thing could be done for volume). https://www.khanacademy.org/math/cc-third-grade-math/3rd-geometry/cc-third-grade-decompose-to-find-area/v/decomposing-shapes-to-find-area-grids-math-3rd-grade-khan-academy
L11 -page 55. Inequalities (ask if you need help!) page 57#1.
L12 – page 59. The midpoint formula and partition formulas are in your Interactive Notebook.
L13 – page 63. page 66. This one might take a while but the questions are good! https://www.khanacademy.org/math/geometry/hs-geo-analytic-geometry/hs-geo-dividing-segments/v/ratios-of-distances-between-colinear-points
EOM Test from M4 will be Monday, 10/29/18 Questions should be emailed to Catherine.Coats@JPPSS.K12.LA.US I cannot answer you if you contact me in a different email. HW and IN are due MONDAY! No late work will be accepted. Exit ticket retakes will be allowed through lunch on Tuesday 10/30/18. As stated in class, the questions on the test will be similar to HW problems in your workbook and Exit Ticket problems that you were allowed to take notes on. If your WB, Interactive notebook, and notes are not sufficient, I have posted videos on the Wiki. You can also research the topic of interest. Topics are listed in the table of contents of your interactive notebook. You should be able to graph points on a coordinate grid. X’s are along the horizontal axis and Y’s are along the vertical axis. Points should always be listed as (x,y). You need to be able to partition a segment. You need to be able to use the distance formula. You need to find the new coordinates of a segment rotated around an end point. You need to know that the slopes of perpendicular segments, when multiplied together, give the product of -1. You need to be able to put an equation for a line in point-slope form. You need to be able to look at the equation of a line and tell what the slope and y-intercept are. You need to be able to compare equations to tell if lines are parallel, perpendicular, or neither. You need to know that perpendicular means that right angles are made and that the slope of the lines will be negative reciprocals of each other.
