Homework For Mr Santowski's Integrated Math 3 Classes



The MAIN point to HW in this class is to practice HOW to do Math, so it has a SKILLS focus!! The MAIN point to the LESSONS is to see WHY we do the Math & WHAT we can do with it, so Lessons have an APPLICATION and PROBLEM SOLVING focus


These are the various homework "formats and oddities" that I insist upon:


(1) Include date, lesson title, page number and questions at the top of your HW.

(2) do your homework the evening the lesson was taught.

(3) homework is due our next class period before the lesson starts. If your homework is not completed, the incompletion WILL BE NOTED in my records & parents will be advised, but you will have until the end of the unit to complete and submit any late homework.

(4) all homework MUST be checked against the answer key that will be provided for most HW assignments.

(5) I MUST see RED/BLUE check marks or RED/BLUE wrong marks for your work.

(6) Any homework that is incorrect MUST be corrected (or I must see a reasonable attempt!)

(7) Collaborate with your classmates, but DO NOT simply copy their work. If you really don't understand it, SOLVE YOUR OWN PROBLEM (ASK yourself about what resources you have available to you???!?!?!?!)

(8) When I check your homework, I look for: (i) did you follow my instructions for presenting your HW? (ii) which questions did you try/skip, (iii) what did you do when you got stuck on a question, (iv) do I see evidence of an attempt at a solution? (v) maybe I just marked ONE question in detail. HOMEWORK grades per HW assignment will either be 5 or 0.

(9) Graded homework will be placed back into your binder

AFTER LESSON 3 on Domain & Range

Assigned on Monday, Aug 25

Due: Tuesday, Sep 2


In preparing for the QUIZ on Tuesday, Sept 2 (B Block) on Introduction to FUNCTIONS, here is a LINK to the Nelson 11 textbook CHAPTER 1 REVIEW SECTION, where you could work through Practice Q1,3,5,6 on page 40 as well as Practice Q3,4,5ab,8b on page 76. Here is the link to the ANSWERS to the Chapter 1 section of the textbook.Key ideas in our functions intro are discussed on pg 38 & 39 of this review section.

Here is another textbook link to MHR Mathematics 11, Chap 3.1. You could work through Q7,9,11,12,15,27,29

I have linked a list of CONCEPTS & SKILLS to know from our IM3 lessons so far.

Another HINT is that I REALLY LIKE the exercises on page 5 & 6 of LESSON #1 as well as the easier exercises on page 4 & 5 of Lesson #2

Here is a link to an Introduction to Functions Quiz (and its solutions) given to IM2 students in Aug 2014
