# Week of March 24th

We’ve finally made it – the week before spring break! Let’s hope this weeks schedule is a little more “normal.”

This week in Algebra 2 Honors we’ll be taking our test on Radicals and moving on to Exponential and Logarithmic Functions. We’ll be looking at how to solve exponential functions and introducing logarithmic functions (the inverse of an exponential.) We’ll have another SOL Review Quiz this week – due next Sunday. We’ll also be doing another POW (Problem of the Week) this week. We have a unique opportunity to work on the same problem as some students in Trinidad. Their teacher is one of my Twitter friends and she would like us to mentor them – give them feedback and hints. I’m going to need at least 10 volunteers – please consider participating! A unique opportunity to learn from and with students in another country!

In Algebra 2, we’ll be starting our Radicals unit after finishing our toughest unit of the year. After spring break, we’ll finish with the radicals, take our simulation test and finish up our last few topics before beginning our formal SOL review.

The year is flying – the last nine weeks starts this week. Time to finish strong!

# Week of March 18th

Happy Snow Day … again!

An update on the schedule.

In Algebra 2 Honors, we’ll review for our unit test tomorrow – Wed, 3/18. On the block day, I’ll answer a few more review questions, we’ll start our next unit on Exponential and Logarithmic functions and you’ll have some time to do your SOL homework quiz for the week (just posted it) and the unit practice test. On Friday, we’ll take the SOL portion of our unit test and I’ll take questions from our new lesson.

Don’t forget the following due dates!

Friday, March 21st – SOL portion of Unit 7 Test

Sunday, March 23rd – SOL Hwk Quiz Week3 due by 11:59 pm (I will sending out limited reminders!)

Monday, March 24th – Free Response portion of Unit 7 Test and Unit Practice Test due

In Algebra 2, we’ll continue our review of unit 6 in preparation for our test on the block day. During our long period we’ll review a bit more and take our unit assessment. We’ll also have some time for some more practice and reassessment as well as a little break in the middle. On Friday, we’ll start our next unit on Radicals which should be a little easier than this past unit!

See you tomorrow!!
