Please complete all of the Review work in pages 345 – 348 (Ch. 5.1 – 5.6).  Do not do 5.7.   Then, please complete all of the odd problems in the Chapter Test on page 349.

This assignment has roughly 30 problems total.  Please use your time wisely.  I will be absent tomorrow; I will be at Block 37 with the band.  Use that time to complete this work.  Please email me with any questions or concerns.

Mr. C

PS  Hold on to your work until we meet on Wednesday.

Homework – Due Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013

Please write one summary paragraph that attempts to explain how the three formulas of Linear Equations (Standard, Point-Slope, Slope-Int.) relate to one another and why it is important to know all three (or how to manipulate information from one form to another).  You can include a specific example if you would like.

Academic paragraphs are usually 4-6 sentences.  Please consider an introductory sentence, and a concluding sentence:  you might consider explaining how these formulas are useful out in the world for a concluding sentence.

Please email me with any questions or concerns.  You can hand write this or share it via google docs.  Either way, I will collect this and it will be graded.  Also, you will use this to collaborate with people in your groups to compile your final summary for your charts.
