Math Analysis

Updates for week of 30 November:

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving break.  We have 3 weeks before our winter break and lots to accomplish.  Here's some important information for this week:

1.  GradeSpeed is finally up to date.  Please check it for accuracy.  Special Black Friday deal...turn in any HW that you got less than a score of 5 on before school starts on Monday (30 Nov) and I will update your grade. 

2.  A new timeline for unit 6 and the end of unit 5 has been posted.  Print it and turn it in by lunch on Monday and I will add a point to your Unit 4 test.

3.  Sports competitions start this weekend.  Make sure you are doing everything possible to ensure you remain eligible throughout the season.

4.  The unit 5 test will be on Wednesday and Thursday of this week.  Are you prepared?


End of Q1 Schedule:

Monday:  4.3 Notes
Wednesday:  4.3 MC; 4.4 notes (Grades count for Q2)

B1 & B3
Tuesday: 4.2 MC (last Q1 grade); 4.3 notes
Thursday:  4.3 MC; 4.4 Notes

Be sure to check last week's updates for an important reminder.



Due to an unexpected day off from school the following changes will be made to our timeline for BLUE classes only:
      Wednesday, 28 Oct:  MC 4.1, Notes 4.2 & 4.3
      Tuesday, 3 Nov: MC 4.2 & 4.3, Notes 4.4
      Thursday, 5 Nov:  Back on track


1.  If you have any zeros for HW - I will accept any of these for 1/2 credit if turned in no later than 1:00PM  Monday, 2 November. 

2.  If you received a grade less than 70% any of the unit tests...complete the Corrective assignment for the review and turn it in by Thursday, 29 October for a chance to retest (max score possible -70%). The retakes will be given on Friday, 30 October.  You must arrive between 8 AM and 9AM or no deal!



Updates for week of 26 October:

1.  A new/adjusted timeline for Unit 4 has been posted.  Please print a copy for your notebook so you know what is going on.  +1 EC on the chapter 3 test if you turn it in to me BEFORE school on Monday.

2.  Two useful links for transformations if you are having trouble.  Hint:  the b and h values determine how you change the original x values of the function, the a and k values change the original y value.

3.  Order of operations for transformations - b, h, a, k (note the change from what was written in the notes!)

Updates for week of 19 October:

1.  The Unit 3 test will be Monday/Tuesday of this week.  This is the last big test for the quarter.  Make sure you have your Unit 3 review ready to turn in. 

2.  GradeSpeed is up to date.  Look your grades over carefully and let me know if there are any errors.   

3. The Unit 4 timeline is now available on the "Files to Print/View" page.  Be sure to print it so you know what is happening in class and for HW.

4.  If you are missing any mastery checks or tests I will be scheduling you for seminar on Wednesday.  Please plan accordingly.


Updates for week of 13 October:

We are still on track so check out the unit 3 timeline for details.  Be ready to finish up the mastery checks and be prepared for the unit test at the end of the week.


Updates for week of 5 October:

1.  Due to having 2 half days on blue days (2 and 14 Oct) I have adjusted the timeline for all blue classes.  Please print and keep it in your binder.

2.  GradeSpeed will be updated by the end of the weekend.  Be sure to check it for accuracy and let me know if there are any errors.


Updates for the week of 28 September:

Are you ready for the unit 2 Test?  Remember that the test is Monday and Tuesday.  Stop by and see me before class if you have any questions.

The Unit 3 Timeline is posted on the "MA - Files to Print" link.  Please print it and place it in your binder.  I will be checking to see if you have it at the start of class on Wednesday/Thursday.

We may need to make a slight adjustment to the timeline for the blue day classes since this Friday is a shortened schedule.  I will see what we can accomplish on that day and adjust accordingly.  Any changes will be posted next weekend.


Updates for the week of 21 September:

No new information.  We are right on schedule according to the Unit 2 timeline.  We wrap up Unit 2 this week and prepare for the test.


Updates for the week of 14 September:

1.  A timeline has been posted for Unit 2.  Print and place in the box at the start of class Monday or Tuesday to receive an EC point on the Unit 2 test!

2.  This week we start our in-depth study of functions.  Be sure to stay on top of our work.

3.  In seminar we will now be allowed to travel.  There is a sign up sheet posted on the front board for you to sign up to be requested to my seminar.  Please sign up as soon as you know you want/need to come in but no later than 1 PM the day of that seminar.

4.  Tuesday is the last day to add or drop a course.  Make sure you see your counselor before the end of that day if you need to make schedule changes.

5.  Each week, GradeSpeed will be updated no later than Monday - in time for athletic eligibility.  Please get in the habit of checking it each Monday and bring any discrepancies to my attention as soon as possible.

6.  I hope you all off to a great start this year.  Please let me know if you or your parents have any concerns.
