This is an EXCEL spreadsheet I created during a boring inservice day.
I used this spreadsheet to create third, fourth, and fifth degree functions for my students to factor using their graphing calculators. I also discussed end behavior of functions,
Graphing lines ... I have included a key showing all work.
This is a good algebra 1 or algebra 2 assignment.
Given a graph, students will determine the slope, intercepts and the equation. Students will determine the slope and y-intercepts given an
Inverses of functions
I have included a full key showing all work.
This is a good worksheet for algebra 2.
Finding the inverses of functions graphically and algebraically.
Graphing a function and its inverse. Discovering that domain and range
There is a partial key provided. Every third problem is worked out.
This is a good assignment for algebra 1, algebra 2, and pre-calculus (precalculus).
This would be a good final review assignment for algebra 1.
Use this spreadsheet to determine the quadratic equation with real solutions, complex solutions, and solutions with radicals.
Example: Real solutions 6 and -2 will compute a sum of 4 and a product of -12. Using the pattern x^2 - sum * x + product =
This is a boring 72 problem assignment I use before starting an algebra 2 unit on the unit circle. Students will draw angles in standard form -- learning that counter-clockwise is positive and clockwise is negative. Students will learn about
This is a boring worksheet working with exponential and logarithmic forms. Students will convert from exponent form to logarithmic form, convert from logarithmic form to exponential form, and work small logarithmic expressions mentally. There is a
Patterns and inductive reasoning
This is a good worksheet for early in a new year of geometry.
Students will identity geometric and numerical patterns.
Conjectures and counterexamples problems are also given.
Undefined terms. Postulates.
This assignment would be given after a lesson on the undefined terms and Euclids Postuates discussed in geometry.
Terms used in this assignment are point, line, plane, collinear and coplanar points, postulates, and
This is my first lecture every year in geometry.
I discuss the beginnings of geometry, a little history, and some of the historical figures.
I then discuss inductive and deductive reasoning and patterns.
The terms conjecture and counterexample are
This is a boring 48 problems assignment to use before starting trigonometric identities. Students will work with the Pythagorean, reciprocal, and quotient identities. Students will also FOIL and factor trigonometric expressions.
This is a boring 53 problem assignment that has student solving radical equations. There are several different types of equations. Some with variables in and out of the radical expression. Students will also use the distance formula to find the
