# Homework & In-class work – Due Wednesday, Dec. 11

Class,

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 Monday, December 9, 2013

Greetings!

Mathematicians, please read the examples in Chapter 5.6 and complete the four “Guided Practice” questions that correspond to the example problems (Pages 325 – 328). Then, I would like for you to complete problems 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 13, and 17 in the “Skill Practice” section (Pages 328 – 330).

# Homework – Due Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013

Please read the introduction section of 5.5 this evening and complete all of the guided questions that follow the examples (pages 319-321). Be prepared to work on the chapter in class tomorrow.

Again, many thanks to everyone for your effort on the Linear Equation Venn Diagram (or Benn Diagram as we now know them to be) Project. They rock!

# 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.

Thanks!
