Here's today's opener (pdf).
We then talked about slope, and how various parameters affect a graph, and about parallel and perpendicular lines (lesson, pdf).
Your homework for Wednesday is:
- Prepare for the Parallel and Perpendicular Lines Assessment. First, complete the online pre-assessment. Then there are a variety of ways to prepare including, but not limited to: review the online pre-assessment; review your notebook and/or the openers and lessons posted on the blog; review the video, work some practice problems in your textbook or that you find online. You can, of course, also get help from me, another math teacher, a teacher in the Study Center, a peer tutor in the Study Center, or a parent, sibling or friend. Do whatever works best for you, but make sure you're prepared. The expectation is that you should all be able to do very well on this assessment.
- Review for the midterm on Thursday. We'll work on this in class on Wednesday as well, but my recommendation is to start working on the review (pdf) now.
