# Algebra

• From Mrs. Reed:
I am sorry I did not post last week. I was having login issues, but apparently they have been fixed. We will begin our unit on quadratics this week and it will continue into next. We will solve them using the formula, completing the square, and factoring.
Homework will be prep worksheets every night.

This week in Math...

Monday, March 20: We will go over questions from our Quadratics Test that students missed. Begin our unit over operations with polynomials. 10.1: adding and subtracting polynomials. Explain how to add polynomials and how to add the opposite when subtracting polynomials. Examples in class. HW: pg. 580 #’s 47-54

Tuesday, March 21: Go over HW and turn in. 10.2: Multiplying Polynomials, and 10.3: Special Products with polynomials. Show FOIL, horizontal, and vertical multiplication. Show square of a binomial pattern and sum and difference pattern. Examples in class. HW: pg. 587 #’s 27-32, pg. 593 #’s 31-36
