Homework: Finish your EOC review sheets for Units 3 - 6. Your end of course test is THIS WEEK ON THURSDAY, MAY 2ND AND FRIDAY, MAY 3RD. Please login to USATestPrep to complete the domain practice tests. USATestPrep extra credit is due Thursday night (5/2) at 11:59pm. No extra credit will be given for any tests completed after Thursday. I am having after school EOC tutoring in my classroom from 3:40 - 5pm Monday through Thursday this week.
3rd block: below are the notes for pages 35 & 36. Please fill them out in your Unit 6: Probability packet.
Homework: All problems on pages 21 & 22. Today in class we took notes on Compound probability on page 17 in our Unit 6: Probability packet. In class, we also did all or most of the problems on page 18 practicing compound probability (which can either be classified as independent events or dependent events). We also learned how to determine if two events are independent or dependent by using the Multiplication Rule for Independent Events (pages 20 & 22). Videos of the notes on page 17 , the classwork on page 18 and the independent/dependent notes/classwork from pages 20 & 22 are below.
Video #1: notes on page 17
Video #2: Classwork on page 18
Video #3: Independent/Dependent notes & practice: pages 20 & 22
Homework: Complete all problems on pages 14 & 16 in your Unit 6: Probability packet. If you have time, please login to USATestPrep and do some EOC review to earn extra credit.
Today in class we learned the difference between mutually exclusive and overlapping events and the formulas to calculate those probabilities. We filled out the notes on page 12 in the Unit 6: Probability packet.
Below is a picture of today's notes:
Homework: Complete the odds on pages 44 - 49 in your Unit 5: Modeling packet. Today in class, we completed the notes on circles on pages 34 - 36 in your packet.
Today we learned:
- First, you need to know the center of a circle and then you need to know the radius of a circle. If you are not given those, you have to figure it out from the information given.
- When you know the center of a circle and a point on the circle, use the distance formula using these 2 points to find the radius.
- When you know the endpoints of a diameter of a circle, use the midpoint formula to find the center of the circle, then...
- Use the distance formula using the center (the point you just found) and one of the endpoints of the diameter (it doesn't matter which one) to find the radius
- Complete the square for x and y to change the equation of a circle from general form to standard form.
- Multiply the binomials with x and y to change the equation of a circle from standard form to general form.
- Verify if a point is on a circle.

Homework: Complete the odd problems on pages 37 - 40 in your Unit 5: Modeling packet. Today in class we reviewed the Algebra I concept of completing the square on page 41 in your Unit 5: Modeling packet (a picture of the notes is posted below). Then we started our circle notes and filled out all of page 33 and the top half of page 34 (pictures are posted below).
Please remember that your Geometry EOC is Thursday, May 2nd and Friday, May 3rd. Also be sure to practice using UsaTestPrep. The first part of the extra credit is due Sunday, 4/21. This is great practice to get ready for the EOC. Login instructions are in your Unit 5: Modeling packet.
Completing the square notes & practice:
Day 1 of circles notes on pages 33 & 34:
Homework: Complete all problems on pages 28 & 31 in your Unit 5: Modeling packet. Today in class, our warm up was page 30, which was a review of our parallelogram properties. Please review the properties on the green summary sheet I handed out. We took notes on page 23 (writing equations that are parallel or perpendicular to a given line through a specified point). A copy of the notes from page 23 are below:
Homework: Complete ALL problems on pages 26 & 27 in your Unit 5: Modeling packet. Today we learned how to determine if lines are parallel, perpendicular or neither (simply intersecting). If you were absent today, or didn't get all of the notes from class, they are below:
Warm up: Review on how to find slope given a graph (page 20)
Notes on page 21:
Notes from page 22:
Homework: Complete the odd problems on pages 5 - 8 in your Unit 5: Modeling packet. Below are pictures of the notes we took in class today. Distance formula is page 3 and Midpoint formula is page 4. I will be checking your notes in addition to your classwork/homework for a grade tomorrow, so please be sure that everything is filled out.
Homework: Study for your Unit 4 Volume test tomorrow. Review the problems in your Volume Test Review which are on pages 31 - 35 in your Unit 4: Volume packet. Also study density and its formula (density = mass / volume).
Below are 2 videos which explain the problems in the Volume test review.
Video #1 (Explains questions #1 - 14, except for #7. The numbering is off by 1 starting at #7).
Video #2 (explains problems #16 - 18 on page 35 of your packet).
Homework: Complete all problems on pages 23 & 24 in your Unit 4: Volume packet. If you want to work ahead, you can start working on the test review problems on pages 31 - 33. Test is Friday, 4/12.
Extra Credit Opportunity: Complete domain tests on Usatestprep.com and score an 80% or above on 2 different domain tests and you will earn a 100 as a test grade (weighted as half a test). If you also complete the other 2 domain tests and score an 80% or above on those, you will earn another 100 as a test grade (weighted as half a test). Login instructions are in your Unit 4: Volume packet. You can try the tests as many times as you want before the due dates.
