STORM DAY: Friday, Nov. 30

Posted in math homework by cmmacaulay on November 30, 2018

With widespread power outages all over the Island this morning, schools have been closed for the day.  Read below to see how this affects our plans, and what extra help for next week will look like.  Unfortunately, with many meetings and appointments after school, it’s going to be tricky to fit in …

Math 521B:

  • Assignment #11 due on Monday at 12:15 pm … as indicated in yesterday’s post, I’ve included a couple of extra textbook examples for you to study if needed
  • I’m assigning a couple of additional problems from the book for you to try for Monday: Pages 376-377 #8abeYou will need to go back and refresh your memory about graphing parabolas in Sections 3.1-3.2 (which is great exam review anyway!).  Use Desmos to check your answers — you’ll see that taking the abs. value of quadratic functions works exactly the same as the linear functions we looked at last class. 
    • Desmos (desmos.com/calculator) can sketch absolute value functions:  Just type abs(, then the function you’re working with, and close your brackets (see the screen shot below).
    •  
  • Test corrections deadline extended to Tuesday at 3:45 pm (at the end of extra help)
  • Assignment #12 will be posted on the blog on Sunday
  • Chapter 7 Test: looking like next Friday now … we’ll see how we get along on Monday/Tuesday

Math 621B:

  • Today’s test is bumped to Monday, and Assignment #11 will be due on Monday as well (in class)
  • Assignment #12 will be posted on the blog on Sunday

Math 421K

  • Today’s planned test will get bumped to Monday (lots of time to study now … no excuses!)
  • Be sure that the Chapter 4 wrap-up assignment is completed for Monday as well … if you need to print off a copy, check Wednesday’s homework post

Extra Help:  Changes for next week (due to meetings/appointments after school) … Tuesday evening, 3-3:45 pm (right before the rescheduled parent-teacher interviews) and Thursday evening, 3-4 pm.  Remember that I’m available most noon times as well.

** Parent-teacher interviews have been re-scheduled to Tuesday, Dec. 4 from 4-7 pm.
