All test retakes must be taken after school on Tuesday, Dec. 12, at 3:00 in room 224. I will take the higher of your two test grades and discard the other one.
The chapter test was today. Tomorrow, we’ll be starting on quadratics and polynomials.
The tests will be graded as soon as possible, but not later than next Monday. Test remakes will be after school next week on Tuesday and Thursday ONLY.
There will be a quiz on properties of exponents on Friday. This will cover all material in 5-1, 6-1, and 6-2, but not the material on inverse functions.
The first quarter officially ended November 8. I will accept work towards the first quarter marking period until I leave the building on Friday, November 10. The last official grade of the first quarter are the reteaching sheets I handed out on Monday; the Kuta worksheets assigned on Wednesday will count toward the second quarter.
There is a test on complex numbers and quadratics on Friday, November 3. This test will be worth 50 pts.
The chapter three test will be Thursday, Oct. 19. This test will cover solving and graphing linear systems and inequalities, as well as basic matrix operations.
All students are expected to join the appropriate class on Delta Math. There will be assignments; students are also encouraged to use the resources for additional study.

The chapter 3 quiz has been moved to Friday, Sept. 29, due to the two half-days. It will still cover the same material (up to solving three-variable systems), even though we will start matrices on Thursday.
The chapter 3 quiz is currently planned for Thursday, September 28.
The quiz covers graphing and solving two-variable linear systems, graphing linear inequalities, and solving three-variable linear systems. This is a five-question open-ended quiz.
