Unit 6: Polynomials and Factoring– We are currently concluding unit 6. The unit test is scheduled for Friday, March 8th. The first week of March we will conclude the unit by exploring complex polynomials to factor as well as applications of factoring. The students should be studying for this Unit test over the course of multiple nights.
Unit 7: Graphing Quadratics – This unit coincides with chapter 10 of the textbook and will carry us into Easter break. The students will first be introduced to the key features of a quadratic graph and equation so they understand the characteristics. We will learn how to solve a quadratic equation by graphing using tables, intercept form, and graphing calculators. Once we have finished covering these various concepts, we will apply quadratic equations and graphs to the vertical motion model, vertex form, and transformations of parabolas. As of now, the quizzes for Unit 7 are scheduled for March 20 and March 27 with the Unit test being April 1. Those dates are subject to change based on the needs of the students.
