Algebra 1B  Chapter 11 HW: Rational Functions
Week of 03202017
We are going to start our new unit with a quick detour:
Arithmetic vs Geometric Sequences  Day 1
Defining arithmetic and geometric sequences. Defining functions and sequences recursively. Practice: Finish page 3 and 4 of packet. Skip #3. We did not do page 1 and 2. 

Arithmetic vs Geometric Sequences  Day 2
Recognizing arithmetic and geometric sequences. Practice with recursive definitions of functions. Practice: #19 of the "Problem Set" portion. For the tables, I want to know: 1) Whether they are arithmetic or geometric or neither 2) A recursive equation for the function 3) An explicit equation (normal y=) for the function 

Introduction to Complex Numbers!!
Every square root equation can now have a solution every time! Every quadratic equation too! Practice: Finish worksheet. 

SPRING BREAK NEXT WEEK!

Day 1 (1st page of investigation) 

Where have we been? The year in review  Day 1.
I do NOT have digital copies of this. You'll have to come grab a copy from me.
Practice: 20 minutes outside of class working on practice problems.

DESMOS Marble Slide for Rational Functions
You will have a class code when you get to class.
If you were absent during class, go through at least slide 20 (challenge #4).
2nd pd class code: P9DDU
4th pd class code: 2UPMZ

11 Quiz and Math Binder Check
Since we can't have other assessments during PARCC weeks, this is coming a bit later than I would like. Topics covered: 1) Arithmetic vs Geometric sequences Identifying the type. Writing recursive and explicit definitions for the function 2) Imaginary numbers Simplifying radical expressions 3) Multiplying and dividing rational expressions 4) Solving rational equations Not on the quiz: Identifying horizontal and vertical asymptotes in a graph and in an equation

11 Review


11 Review Answer Key. I had to scan separate pages, hence the separate pdf files.

Due to timing of other tests and projects in the school, we will not have our chapter 11 test on Thursday. Instead, we will start chapter 14.
