Your weekly assignments and our general flow will be described here. Each week, I'll post a new page with the date as part of the title. Then, I will describe what we are doing, what testing or grading will occur.

Assignments
Week of Jan. 22
You have been off to a great start this semester! We have covered quite a few, but related, topics. This week we will do some final review of the circles, tangent lines, etc., then test on Wednesday or Thursday. 
Week of Jan. 7
On Monday, Jan. 7, you will finish the "pretest", so we can see what areas we need to focus on. This is the most important exam you can take, and you pass it if you finish it with some effort. Please try hard, so we can focus on your needs!! Tuesday, we will begin "completing the square", as that will lead us into the concepts of circles. Here are a few links:
Also, I'd like to evaluate Khan Academy's practice area. Go there, create an account (you can use your CDAT email), and choose me as your "Coach". 
Week of November 26
You received a Performance Final review sheet last week. This should be finished for my review by Monday, Dec. 3. 
Week of October 22
We are going to finish up the Polynomials Party we've been having. Just a few more things to know about it, then leave it behind! I'm thinking we might test on this on Thursday. The class is doing well, let's be sure to focus when we get into class! 
Week of October 1
I'll hand back your test edits Monday. Then, we review the Linear Programming examples for a day or two, probably followed up with a test on Wednesday or Thursday. The key to these:

Week of Sept. 17
Here's a link to the Systems of Equations that I handed out last week It includes the answers. Over the next two days, complete all of the sheet in preparation for a test on Wednesday. This will be collected and graded on your "work shown". The test will include word problems like those we practiced. 
Week of Sept. 10
Last week we began a new twist on a topic: Solving Systems of Equations What does that mean? When you have more than one equation, we call it a "system" (yes, fancy!). Matrices were one way to solve them. We are now going to review 3 more ways to solve them:
We will cover one each day, most likely quiz you on each method and build up as we go. 
Week of Sept. 4
Tues  review the test, study for "test corrections" Wed  Test corrections Thurs  new stuff: solving equations in other ways Friday  more of Thursday 
Week of August 27
Tired of matrices yet? This should be it, the final roundup heading into a test on all we've covered so far. Oh, and one other topic, dealing with maplike lines and such. We will review this final new topic, review anything you did not perform well on during the previous quizzes, and get ready for the big test near the end of the week. Your job: identify what you want to work on. Don't say "everything", that's a lie and a lazy response. Take ownership, review your mistakes, and get focused on researching (web, friends, teacher) how to improve on those types of problems. Homework: read, research about topics you're not aware of. Maybe see some KhanAcademy videos (other others, see my Links page) 
Week of August 20
Coming up:
You folks have been doing well, at least those who have been actively involved. YOU are in charge of learning, demand help, don't sit back. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!
