Home Nugget #17

Assigned on Friday June 6, 2008

Due on Wednesday June 11, 2008

Reflection sheets handed out on Thursday for Looking for Pythagoras.

Reflection sheets for summative review handed out on Friday.

These serve as your last refreshers for concepts likely to appear on the district final exam but are by no means comprehensive.

The final rubric which will be used to score your origami project, due on Thursday June 12 is also provided at the link which follows and was distributed and discussed in class.

### Reaching Back To Reflect on Our Math Journeys This Year

Students have entered the phase of the year when we are preparing for final exams (scheduled for June 12, 13 and 16). Integral to this process is having an opportunity to reflect on the major topics we have covered. This endeavor will be achieved on the home nuggets as students are being provided with summative assessments from all the major books to help them become refamiliar with material.

Tonight's lesson covers two nights and revolves around exponential relationships.

**Due on Wednesday May 28, 2008**

**Using "Vincent's Problem" from class, solve the system of equations using the four methods we have been working on:**

**1. Equality**

**2. Graphing**

**3. Substitution**

**4. Combination**

*(Vincent's problem is as follows: he is an artist who sells oil paintings for $500 apiece and charcoal sketches for $300 apiece. He wants to sell a total of 56 items and earn a total of*

*$20, 000. How many of each item must he sell to satisfy these two requirements?)***Then, in**

### Solving Systems Using Combination

Home Nugget #11

Assigned on Thursday May 22, 2008

Due on Tuesday May 27, 2008 (Extended due date needed to allow for sufficient exploration of topics in class)

From the text The Shapes of Algebra

Page 58 Questions A #1, B # 1, 2, D #1, 2 and E #1

Page 60 #15 - 26

Extremely important to provide representative explanations for numbers 15 - 26 such that you are not just blindly answering questions but rather being forced to think through the concepts.
