Thanks to my "other" favorite awesome students (Amina & Fadi), here are two other algebra sites (in addition to wolframalpha.com) that will help with the algebra & factoring & solving & graphing:
(1) Oct 24 for Linear Functions Assignment (Olympic Trends)
(2) Nov 9/10 for TEST #2
Sept 29
I have linked blank copies of the UNIT TEST for both classes. I would advise you to print them and try working through them over the next week. You will BE REQUIRED to make corrections on your own tests, in order to earn a curved score for the test.
Unit Objectives to study for our first TEST ==> obj # 1-8,11,13,14. One suggestion for your studying ==> go back into Lessons 1-6 (Lessons 1-5 for Block C class) and try doing questions again, especially questions that relate to these objectives. Here is the link to the Unit 1 syllabus. Other study suggestions are found on the RESOURCES page
ANNOUNCING: The first UNIT TEST will be coming up on the 27/28th of September. Test will cover everything we have learned up until the lesson of Sept 25/26

ANNOUNCING next HW QUIZZES for this upcoming week: for G Block on Wednesday & for C Block - on Thursday
ANNOUNCING 2 HW QUIZZES for this upcoming week: for C Block - on Wed and Sun and then for G Block on Tues & Thurs.
From our work together so far, I will be assessing your ability to demonstrate an understanding of OBJECTIVES 1,2 & 3 from our Unit Syllabus. Review opportunities are located on the RESOURCES page in the Linear Functions drop down menu. The possible review items are indicated by the {1,2,3} objective notation
