Pre Calculus (Honors)
3/19-20 Students took quarterly assessment and chapter 9 test. 3/21-22 Started learning about limits. Students given practice work sheet to do, not for a grade. 3/26 Went over quarterly assessment and chapter 9 test. 3/27 Learned how to evaluate limits with indeterminite form (0/0 or infinity/infinity) algebraically. Assigned book page 798: 6-30 Even's only. Due Friday. 3/28 More practice using graphs to evaluate limits. Students assigned book page 789: 28-36, 47-54. Due Monday. 3/29-30 Learned how to use limits + the slope formula to find the slopes of non-linear functions by finding their derivative. Students given 20-30 minutes in class to work on homework. 4/2 Students practiced multiplying polynomials and radicals, praciced taking derivatives of a variety of functions, and were assigned book page 808: 1-6, (25-37 odds). Due Friday. 4/3 Students worked in class, practicing limits and derivatives. 4/4 Learned about continuity of functions. Students given continuity worksheet. Due Monday. 4/5-6 Students took limits quiz. Book pg 817: 1-14, 23-26 regarding limits as x approached infinity was assigned. Students had most of an hour in class to work on class/homework. 4/9 Students learned about the factorial function, choose function, and their applications. 4/10 Students learned about binomial expansion and how that could be used to multiply polynomials quickly. Assigned book page 624: 3-30 multiples of 3, 57-60. 4/11 Did some practice problems similar to what we learned yesterday, students given time in class to work on assignment. 4/12-13 Worked more on class work, students given practice limits test, which we went over in class. 4/16 Students took limits practice test number 2, went over results in class. 4/17 Students took limits practice test number 3, went over results in class. 4/18 Students created their own test for chapter 11, answer the problems, and turned it in for a grade. 4/19-20 Students took limits and binomial expansion test. 4/23 Students worked on pre-calculus EOC review number 1 -- topics from chapter 1 4/24
Students worked on pre-calculus EOC review number 2 -- topics from chapter 1, 2
4/25 Academy day -- no class.
Students wroked on pre-calculus EOC review numbers 3, 4 -- topics in trigonometry and vectors (and other assorted problems.)
Went over questions from previous EOC reviews. Students took a quiz based on problems from those reviews. 5/1 Students took EOC practice quiz 1 (Went over results in class.) 5/2 Students took EOC practice quiz 3 (Went over results in class) 5/3-4 Students took EOC Practice test 1 for the first half of class. We answered the questions together for the second half. 2/15-16 2/19 2/20 2/21 2/22-23 2/26 2/27 2/28 3/1-2 3/5 3/6 3/7 3/8-9
