## Review Day

On December 3rd/4th we:

• got back our quizzes on L.O. 11 – 14
• were assigned the Chapter Review and Practice Test from Chapter 3

Your unit test will be on December 9th/10th and cover the following learning outcomes:

• L.O. 11:  Demonstrate an understanding of factoring basic & complex polynomial expressions.
• L.O. 12:  Demonstrate an understanding of solving equations by factoring.

• L.O. 16:  Demonstrate an understanding of how to solve problems that involve quadratic equations.

On November 29th/December 2nd we:

• looked at some problems that involved quadratic equations (and practiced evaluating the question for the most efficient strategy)
• practiced with the handout questions #1 – 10 and also went back and completed the word problem questions from the worktext in Chapter 3

Your unit test will be on December 9th/10th and cover the following learning outcomes:

• L.O. 11:  Demonstrate an understanding of factoring basic & complex polynomial expressions.

## The Discriminant

On November 27th/28th we:

• had our quiz on L.O. 13 and 14
• learned about the discriminant and how we can use it to determine the nature of roots
• were assigned section 3.6 in our Work Text

Your unit test will be on December 5th/6th.

Here is the lesson from today:

On November 25th/26th we:

• were assigned section 3.5 in our Work Text

Next day you will have a quiz on L.O. 13 (solving by method of squares) and L.O. 14 (solving by quadratic formula).
