Opener (pdf).

Lesson (pdf).

Your homework for tonight is:

1. Prepare for the Graphing Linear Equations Using a Table Assessment on Monday. There are a variety of ways to do that 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 on Monday.

2. Finish Steps 2 and 3 from the lesson. Please don't start until Saturday so that those folks who didn't get their data entered on the spreadsheet can add their data tonight.
Step 2: Calculate each walker's speed. If the speed changes (how can you
tell?) during the walk, then calculate the speed for each interval
where it's different. (This means you may have 2, 3 or 4 different interval speeds for each walker.)

Step 3: Write out the directions you think Mr. Fisch gave each walker.

3. By Next Friday: Create a blog post to complete step 4 of today's lesson.

Create your own set of walking directions (for 10 seconds) and create the accompanying graph. Then post the directions, the graph (some of the ways you created Math Notation might help in getting an image of your graph to upload), and an explanation to your blog. Title the blog post Walking Directions Graph. Please don't wait until the last minute on this - if you need help with this, please come in on an unscheduled hour (most of you have at least 1 or 2 on Tuesday and/or Thursday).

4. Next week is Homecoming. It's a fun week - get involved. All the details of the various events on the AHS Home Page.
