Lessons-Part 1:    Copy the following equations, and state for each...

  a.) ...the "rate of change", and
  b.) ...where the graph of it starts on the dependent (y) axis

  1)  y = 4x + 3                     2)   A =  7t                       3)  D =  2.5 + 6t

  4)  M =  -3.5 + 2d              5)  -5x + 10 = y               6)  150 = y

Classwork:   Corrected Homework, discussing concepts therein; Began working on MSA Problem #2.1 (Pg.24-25).

Turned-in:     MSA -A.C.E. pg.14: # 6-10  (...If using a half-homework pass, students should complete #6, 8, 10)

Homework:  MSA -A.C.E. pg.16: #11-14  (...If using a half-homework pass, students should complete #12 & 14)

Notes:   Students should have a supply of graph paper and some colored pencils in their binder for use during this unit.
  • Students who received a score of 70% or below on Learning Target quizzes need to re-take them to improve their score and to receive a passing grade showing that they understand the learning target. The cut-offs for re-takes are:
    • LT #4.4 - Circle graphs - students who received a score of 5 or less (out of possible 8 pts.).
    • LT #4.5 - arc-length and sector-area of circles - students who received a score of 11 or less (out of possible 16 pts.).

In order to do a re-take, students need to KEEP their old quiz, and BRING it in, with the correct answers (with explanations) on a SEPARATE FORM on the items they missed. [RETAKE FORMS AVAILABLE IN MR. USEM'S ROOM, or are available as a downloadable PDF  document on his WEBPAGE] This will qualify them "ready to re-take" the quiz. Re-takes are to be done outside of regular class time, and can be done before-school, after-school, during recess, or during B.E.S.T. class. Students should make arrangements with Mr. Usem to do the re-takes. Students will have 2 weeks from when the quizzes are handed back to complete the re-take.

  • (Deadline for LT #4.4 is: Friday, Mar 11)
  • (Deadline for LT #4.5 is: Friday, Mar 11)
