### Announcements

#### Weeks of 4/16 - 4/27

We will be PARCC testing during these two weeks. During the first week we will review the first 3 sections of chapter 13. You will have a quiz on these sections on day three. The second week we will develop the unit circle and use it to evaluate values. We will also begin graphing sine and cosine. On day 1 of the following week you will have a quiz on unit circle values. Your quiz has been moved to day 1 of next week... April 30 for 3rd period and May 1 for 5th period. |

#### Week of 3/19 - 3/23

We will learn how to use possible rational zeros to completely factor a polynomial function. We will also revisit graphing polynomial functions using rules of multiplicity. The end of the marking period is approaching. You will have one more test this quarter on day two of next week. Be sure to prepare! |

#### Week of 3/12 - 3/16

We are continuing our study of polynomial operations. We will end by dividing using long and synthetic division. |

#### Week of 3/5 - 3/9

This week you will have a Quest on Polynomial functions (day 2). For the remainder of the week we will divide polynomials using long and synthetic division. |

#### Week of 2/26 - 3/2

This week we will be performing operations with polynomial functions (add/subtract/multiply using special products). We will also begin learning about the key features of polynomial graphs. You will have a mid-chapter Quest on day 2 of next week. |

#### Weeks of 1/29 - 2/23

For the next couple of weeks we will be exploring exponential and logarithmic functions. We will use properties of these functions to expand, condense and solve for unknown values. We will also graph them using transformations and algebraically find their inverse. During the week of 2/19 we will have a test on the unit (day 2). The next unit is on Polynomial Functions. We will review operations with polynomials (add, subtract, multiply/special products) and we will also review factoring polynomials completely. You will have a Quiz on this information next week Tentatively the scheduled days are... 3rd period on 2/28 and 5th period on 3/1. |

#### 3rd Quarter

Welcome back! It's 3rd quarter and we have much to accomplish. We will complete two big units this quarter on Logarithm/Exponential functions and Polynomial Functions. From experience some students find this quarter more challenging than the last. My advise to you is to be prepared for class each day, complete all assignments and attend help sessions, if needed. Oh... one more thing... Remember, I am your BEST resource. |

#### Week of January 2 -5

Happy New Year!!! This week we will begin our rational exponent review and end with radical operations and equations. Next week you will graph radical functions and you will have a test on Radicals and Exponents on Day 3. |

#### Weeks of December 4-8 and 11-15

We are beginning a new unit on functions. We will graph cubic functions using transformations, determine if functions are odd, even or neither, find the inverse of a function, perform function operations and graph piece-wise defined functions. Your unit test will be on DAY 1 of the week of 12/18. |

#### Week of November 27 - December 1

This week we will continue with complex number expressions and review for the BIG test on Quadratics. 3rd period your test will be on Thursday, November 30. 5th period your test will be on Friday, December 1. |
