Download Assignments and Standards Covered here: Download Calendar Beginning Piecewise March 2010

Any changes to the calendar will be noted below by specific day. We will have a quiz next Thursday over Piecewise Functions.

Monday - Go over the Putting the pieces together task (Part I) and answer questions. We will continue working on this task one more night as many did not finish the last problem. I also gave the students parts two and three of the task and asked them to begin working on part three only.

Homework: Finish Part One of the Putting the Pieces Together task.

Tuesday - We looked at Piecewise Functions. We discussed equations and graphs of piecewise functions. We walked through a few examples which can be reviewed by downloading the following powerpoint: Download Lesson 2_5 Piecewise Functions.

7th period - This class had to retake the test from last Thursday due to an academic integrity issue. These students should see the homework assignment below and try to follow the examples in the book in order to attempt the homework problems. We will catch up tomorrow during class.

Homework: Page 51 #1-11.

Wednesday - We will go over some of the homework problems from last night and continue discussing piecewise functions and their graphs.

Homework: If students are having trouble with the homework, they should begin the workbook pages first. Use the textbook examples in 2.5 to help with the corresponding problems in the workbook. In other words the problem on page 48 in the workbook titled example #2 corresponds with example #2 in the textbook on page 49. The steps in the textbook are not left blank and they should students understand what to place in the blanks in the workbook problems.

Thursday - We will add absolute value functions to our discussion of piecewise functions.

Homework: Workbook Pages 50-51

Friday: Go over questions to the assignments from Thursday and Friday.

Homework: Enjoy your weekend but make an effort to begin studying for Thursday's quiz over piecewise functions. . .
