Have you ever been excited and wanted time to speed up but at the same time want time to slow down because there is so much that needs to be done by a certain date/time? That’s exactly how I’m feeling this week. Nonetheless, time keeps moving forward whether we want it to or not, so I guess it’s time to “Suck it up, buttercup.”
In Algebra II, we looked at More Radical Equations and Applications today. This was basically an extension of what we did on Friday with one little new nugget of information – the index. Simply put, the index of the radical tells us how many roots we are taking. For example, if the index was 3, we would be taking the 3rd (cube) root. So, to undo this algebraically, we would need to raise both sides to the 3rd power.
In Geometry, we had a day to just practice a lot of what we have covered thus far. This was a good time to put everything together and get used to just pulling seemingly random stuff about triangles together into one assignment. Overall, I think it was a good lesson that may have knocked off a few cobwebs.
