Hi, all!

I hope you had a great weekend, and if you didn’t make it out to the cheerleading competition on Friday or Saturday, I hope you spent your time relaxing and taking in some of the Olympics! My family and I are absolutely obsessed with them, as evidenced by the cupcakes my sister made for the Opening Ceremonies…

We’ve talked a lot, especially in Common Core 1B, about how exponential growth rates come into play in Olympic events, especially when it comes to downhill skiing and curling. They’ve gotten a peek into Sochi, Russia, and I think I’m enjoying it just as much as they are!

This week in Honors Algebra II, we’ll be focusing on linear equations (in all their various forms), how to create trend lines from scatter plots, and all different types of variation. We’ll plan to quiz on Wednesday and test next Tuesday. **Also, don’t forget that Project 1 is due on Friday!**

In Academic Algebra II, we’ll dive into absolute value equations and inequalities as well as graphing linear inequalities, and we’ll also plan to quiz on Wednesday and test on Friday.

In Common Core 1B this week, we’ll continue exploring exponential growth and decay, how to find trend lines for linear and exponential equations, and we’ll even test out some exponential decay with a lab on concentration and dilution! It should be a fun week!

Here are our schedules! As always, feel free to let me know if you have any questions! Remember that Friday is early release, and if we run into any adverse weather this week, I’ll be sure to update our schedule and keep the students posted on HW and quiz changes via Twitter and Remind 101.
