PreAP PreCalculus

Welcome to PreAP PreCalculus!

Don’t let the name scare you. In this course we will pick up where Algebra 2 left off, but not without reviewing what you learned there. You will see all of the same functions with the addition of these functions: polynomial, piece-wise, step, more rational, and trigonometry! Trigonometry goes way beyond SOH CAH TOA. In fact, we will spend an entire semester learning about Trigonometry.

If you are absent, I need you to go the link below and get the notes from the day you were absent. Do this before you return to class. This is where you will find the notes taken in class everyday. I will post them by the afternoon everyday. Using your phone, go to the link and the bookmark it for easy access. PreCal is like a small town, if you blink while going through, you will get lost. This is my attempt at helping you not to get lost when you blink.

If you know you are going to be out for extracurricular activities, please get your work before you leave.

When you are absent, then # of days out = # of days allowed to return work.

Please understand that posting the notes is a courtesy. You may have to “phone/text a friend” for a picture of their notes if my notes have not been posted yet.

Lesson Plans for the Week of April 6, 2020

It looks like we are hunkered down for longer! So, I’m sending you to Khan Academy this week to learn about Trigonometry. I’ve scheduled it so you have a couple of days for the bigger sections.If you have been doing the optional work, then this will be a review for you and some of it we did in class. I will post the links to the videos on Google Classroom. Please do everything through GC unless you cannot access it and you have let me know that. There is a google classroom app that works well for iphone, not so well for android users.

If you cannot access GC, then the links are below as well. Those that have contacted me have said that they can watch the videos from the blog. If you have NOT contacted me and are reading this and CANNOT get into GC, you need to let me know ASAP. You will need to set up a way to communicate with me how you are doing with the material.

You will be working through the practice provided and letting me know how you did, BUT we are NOT taking grades at this time per our superintendent’s instructions. When he gives the go ahead, we will. In the meantime, we continue documenting that you are working through the material.

We need to think about setting up a ZOOM meeting so that I can answer questions and just visit with y’all! I am getting cheated on my school year with you!

We are moving to KHAN ACADEMY and will go through their trigonometry section. 🙂

Lesson Plans for the Week of March 30, 2020

I’m in the process of moving to google classroom so that it will be easier to assign things to you. Please join your google classroom: v3qyg5b     CONTINUE to check the blog to see the weekly calendar of what we are going to be doing, but hopefully I’ll have assignments that you can “turn in” on GC soon. I can monitor what you are doing better. If we go to online learning for the rest of the year, we will need to be on GC. I haven’t used GC, as you know, so please be patient with me. 🙂

Week #3 of QUARANTINE! Are you truly staying away from everyone??? Miss y’all!

If you have any questions, drop me an email or a remind. 🙂

I have offered an OPTIONAL section again for this week. I have allotted multiple days to work through the OPTIONAL section. If you choose to follow the OPTIONAL section, then be sure to go in order–don’t skip ahead to a different day.

If you choose to the OPTIONAL section, then you DO NOT ALSO have to do the “This week’s to do list”. Do one column OR the other. Unless you are just so completely bored that you want to do both. 🙂

Day of the Week 🙂

Hey, Everyone! I hope you are doing well! I miss seeing y’all! It’s strange to not be at school.

I have offered an OPTIONAL section for this week. I have allotted multiple days to work through the OPTIONAL section. If you choose to follow the OPTIONAL section, then be sure to go in order–don’t skip ahead to a different day.

If you choose to the OPTIONAL section, then you DO NOT ALSO have to do the “This week’s to do list”. Do one column OR the other. Unless you are just so completely bored that you want to do both. 🙂

I JUST LEARNED THAT THE ACTIVITIES ON IXL.COM MAY TAKE A WHILE. AFTER YOU’VE DONE 15 PROBLEMS, IF YOU SCORE IS AN 80 THEN FEEL FREE TO STOP!

Lesson Plans for the Week of March 16, 2020

I hope you are well!

Here’s your job for this week:

I am posting a link to a video that goes over what we did with Trig Identities. If you were not here on Thursday/Friday this is a great way to learn what we did. For this week, watch the video and work on PRACTICE 1-20 in the packet that you will find beneath the video. You can either print them or do the work in  your composition notebook. The first page or two of the packet goes with the video notes if you want a blank copy on which to write.

Check back next week for your next assignment! 🙂
