Practice Test Answers

Thank you Ashley!!! In order

1: D
2: BCD  (See the note on #6)
3: BC
4: C
5: ACD
6: BCE  (Equations that ARE NOT functions have square roots in them.  If y is to the power of 2, then you have to take the square root to solve it, which makes it not a function.  Remember the graphing packet,  all the functions that were not functions were square root problems)
7: A
8: BD
9: A (square roots only make numbers >= to 0)
10: -3
11: D
12: C
13: C
14: B
15: A

Friday 11/6

Int 1:
You have to solve two problems, using the compound interest equations:

A = P(1 + rn )nt

P = Principal (starting amount)
r = interest rate in decimal
n = # compounding per year
t = time in years

First question: You max out your credit card spending $1200.  If you have an interest rate of 19%, and do not pay anything, how much will you owe after 6 months?

Second Question.  You won $2,000,000 in the lottery.  You have to decide where to put your money.  Wells Fargo gives you 2% compounded monthly where as Chase gives you 3% compounded every two months.  Where should you go if you expect to keep your money there for 5 years?

Wednesday Survey

Mathematics Satisfaction Survey

Click HERE to take the math survey.  There is no name, so answer as honestly as you can.  This is not for individuals, but to look at what everyone AS A GROUP says about study skills, and what they like and do not like about math in general.

Monday 10/19

Skills - we started our integers unit

Int 1 - Finish the graphs.  If you cannot use the slope and y-intercept, make a table.

Those who finished last week, answer me these three questions:
1) What are the three basic shapes of all the graphs?
2) What are the identifying parts of those equations?
3) What equations make other shapes? (Use the internet is stuck)

Adv Math and Study Skills

Monday: The POW was due. If you did not turn it in, please do so. Better to have a late score than no score at all.

Tuesday: Skills worked on a art project to memorize a single fact that is tough to remember.  Wednesday we will finish it and work on multiplying with

Wednesday: Int 1 took a test on equations.  Hopefully they will be graded by tomorrow.

If you have not turned in a POW, please do so as soon as possible.  I am stalling on the grades so I can give everyone a chance, because these grades REALLY affect your overall percents.

Int 1 Math: You turned in the assignments from the past week, Magic math, section 1.3 questions, and section 1.4 questions. The last two things are from the website. Skills: We found all possible sums of single digit numbers, serving our goal of memorizing the addition tables. We also played a new game at 3D Design: We are working on understanding the 3D printers, blueprints, and more to make our first thing the Nameplate. Remember you have to finish the articles and answer the questions and pass the safety test before you can print.
