Tests dates are closer than they appear! Our first test is on Tuesday. Please be sure you are studying the material that we have covered thus far to be ready by the time Tuesday gets here.
In Geometry, we wrapped up the new material for the test. In doing this, things got serious because we talked about relationships. No, not those relationships…angle relationships. We talked about complementary angles (adds to equal 90), supplementary angles (adds to equal 180), adjacent angles (shares a side), linear pairs (adjacent and non-shared sides form a line), and vertical angles. There was a large amount of algebra in many of these problems, but we handled them like a champ.
In Algebra II, we looked at how to solve absolute value inequalities graphically. That is, we looked at solving inequalities by graphing the absolute value equations. If the part of the graph we wanted involved the “legs”, then it meant we had an “or” inequality. If the part of the graph we wanted involved the “vertex”, then it meant we had an “and” inequality. In all, I feel like this was new, but the notes help, so see them for more information.
