Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Today we began with this charming opener (pdf). We then learned about recursive sequences (lesson, pdf). Recursive sequences are a nice bridge between the solving of equations we just did and the graphing of equations that we are about to do.

We also spent a little bit of time talking about your digital footprint. This is a really important topic for students growing up today, so please give it some thought. Not only in terms of social issues (like what you put on Facebook and how that reflects on you), but in terms of academic and professional ones (what does the quality of your work that you post online say about you? what do you want college admission officers and employers to see?).

Your homework for tonight is:
  1. Prepare for the Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Assessment tomorrow. There are a variety of ways to do that including, but not limited to: review the online pre-assessment; review your notebook and/or the openers and lessons posted on the blog; review the video, work some practice problems in your textbook or that you find online. You can, of course, also get help from me, another math teacher, a teacher in the Study Center, a peer tutor in the Study Center, or a parent, sibling or friend. Do whatever works best for you, but make sure you're prepared. The expectation is that you should all be able to do very well on this assessment on Wednesday.

  2. If you haven't completed it yet, do the blog post that was assigned yesterday (due by first period tomorrow).
