This week we started and basically finished our trigonometry unit which is our last unit of the year. Although the first couple days were review, the last couple days I learned a bit. I learned about two laws, sine and cosine. The one that stood out to me the most was the sine law.

# Week 16 – Word Problems Rational Equations

This week we didn’t learn anything new besides solving rational word equations, which I found quite challenging at first. I constantly got mixed up and frustrated when trying to solve the word problems. But I finally believe that I have figured out how to solve them.

# Week 15 – Adding Rational Expressions

This week we continued our rational expression with adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing the expressions. I found multiplying and dividing much easier than adding and subtracting. However, once I practiced it a bit, I learned that it was quite straight forward and that I could use things I learned from previous units (ex. factoring) to […]

# Week 14 – Rational Expressions *UPDATED*

This week we finished our solving absolute values unit and began our rational expressions unit. Most of the material was new and what stuck with me the most (and what I probably need for the rest of the unit) is simply simplifying rational expressions.

# Week 13- Reciprocal Functions

This week we continued our Absolute Value and Reciprocal Functions unit. Although some of the material we had to use was from previous units, a lot of what we learned was still new. The one thing that stuck with me with was the graphing reciprocal linear functions chapter. The first step is to draw our […]

# Week 12 – Solving Inequalities using Substitution

This week we completed our solving inequalities unit with a test and began a new unit. We went over quite a bit of new material about graphing and algebraically solving, but I believe what stuck the most was solving an inequality algebraically using substitution.

# Week 11 – Solving Quadratic Inequalities

This week we took our midterm and started our fifth unit which is about solving and graphing inequalities. I learned a lot of new information this week, but I think what stood out for me was solving quadratic inequalities using a sign chart. I found it interesting because we will need to be able to […]

# Week 10 – Midterm Review (Quadratics)

This week we finished our graphing quadratic functions unit and began studying for our midterm. Although we did not learn anything new, I did have to review certain sections of previous units. What I had to (almost) relearn / really think about was unit 3 chapter 5, when one must find the value of a […]

# Week 9 – Equivalent Forms of the Quadratic Function

This week we continued our graphing unit and prepared for the unit test next week. I learned quite a few new things this week but the most interesting and probably useful would be how to convert general form to standard form using the complete the square method.

# Week 8 – Graphing Quadratic Equations

This week we started our new unit on factoring quadratics. I learned quite a few things this week, but the one that stuck with me the most was the 3 different equations that changed certain aspects of a graph. When we put the three equations together we could get one equation that would show us […]
