Also, the AMC math test, which all of period 1 and period 2 is signed up for and taking is on Wednesday, February 19th. So it will be quite a hectic week. Period 3, you will take the test as well if you chose to sign up for it.

SNOW DAY READING!! Renewable Energy with the sun.

Check this out! The world's largest solar plant started making electricity today in California using a principle very similar to the one we used in my demonstration on Wednesday. It's not a parabola, but it does beg the question why they didn't just use a large parabolic mirror in the first place… Perhaps it's lower impact and more efficient since they can adjust the mirrors with computers.

In addition, be sure to watch the video that I have posted online below where I have taught tomorrow's lesson. Take notes on the lesson just as you would in class. I also posted the pdf file of the lesson, so that you can follow along. The examples are directly from the book. That way Tuesday's class will be a work day where you practice what you learned in the lesson (i.e. a "flipped" classroom). Therefore, you won't have any homework on Tuesday night (think of this as a double dose of HW for tonight but if this works well, some nights the video and note taking would be your only "homework" (hence the name flipped classroom).

Here's my first stab at an iPad video lesson. It's a little rough on the edges, but I really like the technology. I might post a better video later tonight if I find a better platform. I am teaching the lesson from section 4.4 so feel free to follow along in your book or my powerpoint which match up exactly. See below.

CHOOSE ANY 10. I would choose one’s that you struggle with. Not one’s that are easier… (it’s a review for a test after all).

**HOW TO REVIEW FOR THE CHAPTER 3 TEST:**

The test is on Wednesday and you only be allowed to use a graphing calculator for part of the test. To review take a look at your quiz on 3.1-3.4 that we took, the solutions to graded HW (which will be posted soon), and the solutions to the polynomial application problems (which are posted below). Also, of course complete your HW to review and review your notes.

SOLUTIONS TO GRADED HW

Applications of Polynomial Functions (Handed out in class)

SOLUTIONS TO POLYNOMIAL APPLICATION PROBLEMS

**I will be collecting HW 19, 20, 21, and 23 on Wednesday (the day of the test).**

__HW 22: Complete the graded HW assignment for Monday. Worth 30 points.__Open Notes/Open Textbook/ Even DISCUSSING answers with a peer is OK.

Graded HW Assignment

__HW #21: RATIONAL FUNCTIONS__Read section 3.7 (up to slant and parabolic asymptotes).

Section 3.7 #21, 22, 26, 41, 47, 57, 59

Optional Challenge Problem: Try out # 64

Don't like your textbook's explanations? Take a look at the notes that I posted below from Dr. Cruzan (if you want some extra help with rational functions or polynomial functions). Use these as a reference and your textbook when going through rational functions.

Dr Cruzan's Rational Function Notes

Polynomial Function Notes

Recall that we will have our Chapter 3 test on Wednesday (10/30) and a take home quiz (3.5-3.7) will be due on Monday.

__HW #20: Finding ALL the zeros of a polynomial function__Read section 3.6

Complete exercises in Section 3.6: #6, 10, 12, 37, 38, 46, 57

__NO HOMEWORK UNTIL MONDAY! ENJOY THE MB EXPO WEEKEND!!__We will be doing an activity on the track tomorrow (Thursday). If you want to determine your running speed, bring some running shoes... (not required of course, but we will need some volunteers.)

There is no HW but if you want practice with polynomial regressions, here are some good problems to do (again this is NOT required).

—Page 299 #2, 3, and 4

__BONUS! (1 point)__Another thing to do is to practice making a polynomial regression using the split times from Usain Bolt's record breaking 100m. I posted the worksheet to use and the data from Usain Bolt's record breaking sprint. I will give you 1 BONUS POINT on your last quiz if you fill out the worksheet below for Usain Bolt's regression and use the derivative to calculate Usain Bolt's max speed in MPH for his record breaking run. (This of course is optional, but will get you 1 bonus point on your last quiz if you bring it in on Monday. The whole worksheet must be complete for the point).

WORKSHEET (to bring in for extra credit).

**Note: you should complete __all__ of problem 2 and 4 and just a-c on #6.

Congratulations, you have successfully made it to my website and have found the first homework. Be sure to complete the HW in your HW journal/notebook.

We are not going to cover chapter 1 in Honors Precalculus; however, it is important to warm-up and make sure that you remember some basic concepts of solving equations, simplifying expressions, and factoring. This is not to say that these problems are easy (in fact, some are quite difficult), but this first homework is a great way to warm back up into some key mathematics principles.

Don't worry if you struggle with some of these problems. Do your best, try every problem, and make sure to complete the HW in your HW journal with the HW "title" at the top of the page (i.e. HW #1: Pg. 128 #2, 4, 6 (a-c) and the date). Also, copy the problem that you are solving. Remember, I check HW for completion and effort, not for accuracy.

Don't have your textbook yet? Don't worry. Below is a copy of the page from your textbook.
