I will try to stay after school tomorrow and Wednesday if you have questions.

Remember that tutoring is also available in H2 after school on Wednesday!
Week 10 Notes are up!
Score booster for Ch. 9 Test

Watch as many videos in the Conics section as you want, and do as many worksheets as you want to review.

I will give 2% back for each of the following worksheets that are mastered (3 - 5 green check marks at the top, with no hints). The worksheet with the * will earn 5% back.

Chapter 9 Study Guide

You may use one 3x5 card on the test. Front and back.

Please come to tutorial on Monday if you have questions!
Ch. 8 Test Retake
If you want to retake or do corrections for your test, you must first complete this review worksheet that is due by this Friday 20th. IF you have any questions, see me tomorrow after school (or at lunch).

You must let me know tomorrow if you plan on retaking or doing corrections for the test.

~Ms. Tanksley
Homework Due Tomorrow
For those students finishing the assignment in class today, remember it is due Tomorrow! (If you already turned it in, then you don't need to worry about it). Look for the problems on homework Week 5, Day 2 (remember, you only need to do two from each section).

ALSO, as a general announcement, I have a google document that has resources and links to online helpful sites that are organized by chapter and content level. If you are having any questions on a topic, either ones we are currently working on, or past things (like factoring polyonmials, for example), just look for it on the document! Current topics will be highlighted. I will be adding to it over the weeks. Please let me know if you know of any helpful websites I can add to the document. You can find it by this link: or by looking at the right hand side of the class website under "Links" (under the homework section).

Solution to end of class problem 2/5/15
Here is the solution to the problem you were working on in class today in your groups. Also, see below for what to know for the test tomorrow!

Chapter 8 Review
What you need to know for the test:

-Know how to set up Direct, Inverse, and Joint variation problems.
-Know how to divide polynomials using long division (don't forget about those 0 place holders!)
-Know how to divide polynomials synthetically
-Know each of the theorems we discussed in class:
1) Remainder theorem (Remainder equals the number you get when you plug in "c" or the "root" into the equation)
2) Factor Theorem (Dividing a polynomial by a factor will result in a remainder of 0)
3) Fundamental Theorem of Algebra (Degree of polynomial equals number of roots)
4) Conjugate Root Theorem (Complex factors occur in conjugate pairs, so if a + bi is a factor then a - bi is a factor)
5) Rational Roots Theorem (find the possible roots by finding all combinations of the factors of the constant term divided by the factors of the coefficient of the first term, then test out each root to see which ones work)
-Know how to convert between a root and a factor (Factor is (x - root)
-Know that a large polynomial is made up of smaller factors multiplied together
-Know that you can use the quadratic formula to find the roots of a degree 2 polynomial
-Know how to tell if something is a root or a factor of a polynomial by dividing by the factor and seeing if you get a remainder of 0 (See remainder theorem) or plugging in the root to see if the polynomial equation equals zero.

I will also be posting a solution to the problem we did at the end of class in just a few minutes!...
