Fireworks Checkpoint Skill List
Wednesday 10/10: Two different problems to consider in table groups:
Tuesday 10/9: Go over solutions to 2(a-e) from page 30. For each expression, find the x-intercepts without graphing.
Monday 10/8: Review final conclusions from pg. 28. In partners, work on page 30 - Vertex Form Begun. Check work using Desmos. Finish for homework.
Friday 10/5: Review problem 6 from pg. 26. In partners, complete page 28 in your notebook, using Desmos as a graphing calculator.
Wednesday & Thursday 10/3-4:
Work with a partner on Solving by Factoring. If you were absent, work on it and meet Dan for Office Hours.
Tuesday 10/2: Review homework from previous night. For problems 3, 4, and 5, make a table of values with at least 6 lines where the y-value is less than 10. Then draw the graph.
Monday 10/1: In table groups, discuss (x+y)^2 = x^2 + y^2. Is this statement true or false? Explain your reasoning.
Complete the activity on page 25.
Friday 9/28: In pairs, complete Expanding Polynomials worksheet. Check your answers with Dan. Once finished, you can work on the POW.
2-hour sessions: In table groups, finish the work from Tuesday.
Show how to use a simpler four-square diagram to multiply factored form into standard form.
Use the four-square diagrams to explore the problem on page 42. Work within groups to present your work as a practice POW.
Tuesday 9/25 - In table groups, draw diagrams for:
Monday 9/24 - Use algebra tiles to represent area and dimensions of algebraic rectangle. Work on Pg. 22-23 in table groups. If you missed class today, watch this video followed by this video, work through pg. 39 from IMP Year 2, and then work on Pg. 22-23.
Friday 9/21 - Review "Make Your Own Intercepts" in table groups. Once complete, get checked off by the teacher and start individual work on POW 1.
Thursday 9/20 - Finish group work on "Factored Intercepts." If students finish their work early, they can begin on homework for the night after being checked off. "MakeYour Own Intercepts" needs to be completed by Friday morning.
Wednesday 9/19 - Discuss quadratic equations, solving problem 16 from Exploring Equations. Review homework in table groups, then work on Factored Intercepts (pg. 19). If you missed class today, work through pg. 19-20 on your own.
Tuesday 9/18 - Read pages 13-15. Define three words from the text. Also define "solution." Create a vocab section in the back of your notebook and write the four definitions there.
Using Desmos, work through pg. 11-12. You do not have to sketch the graphs, but explain your formulas. Skip 1 for starters, answer it after answering 2, 3, and 4.
Monday 9/17 - Discuss the difference between evaluating and solving equations. Individual work on Using Equations. When finished, work time on Exploring Equations (Due Wed.)
