Alegbra 1B  Chapter 8.5 Homework (ocho y Media)
We have this slight problem with our Algebra book; it doesn't cover everything we need to cover in the Common Core State Standards. The slight head nod it gives to probability is helpful but not near enough for our purposes. Also, we need to cover statistics sometime this year. Your book doesn't do this at all. Ever.
So... when I thought of where I wanted to place this material, I could either have waited until second semester when we finished the book, or I could teach it before the science fair. I opted for the second option.
And because I'm not a very inventive person, and because we're squeezing it in between chapters 8 and 9, I opted to calling this chapter 8.5
