11-12-14
Lets work with IXL a little bit more, however, these shouldn't be like the last couple. These shouldn't take as long to complete. To do these IXLs correctly, you MUST graph them if they give you a graph. Here's a hint for successfully doing these: If the lines cross in only 1 place, theres 1 solution (consistent and independent). If they are parallel lines, there is no solution (inconsistent). If the graphs turn out to be the same line, there are infinitely many solutions (consistent and dependent).

Another hint: If the two lines have the same slope but different y-intercept, the lines are parallel.

Do IXLs E4 and E5. You must get 13 correct of each to be done. You DON'T need scratch paper for these.

Thanks for cooperating with Ms. Oxley. Please keep it down and work. Trust me, I wish I could be there with you. Today you're going to work with the Elimination Method. The goal here is to eliminate a variable, solve, then substitute the value back in and find the value of the other variable. Here is a basic example: 6j + 4k = -46 and 2j + 4k = -26. First notice you want to eliminate the k's; what you want is coefficients to match, but they have the same signs. So multiply the second equation by (-1) and you get -2j - 4k = 26. Now add this equation together with the first one and you get 4j = -20 so now you know that j = -5.... Plug this value into one of the old equations and you'll find out k = -4.

For this system: r - 6t = 44 and 9r + 12t = 0 notice no coefficients (numbers) match. So you need to multiply the first equation by 2 and then the t's would match and have opposite signs. You would have 2r - 12t = 88 then. Then you would add the two equations together and get 11r = 88. So r = 8; so if r = 8 you would plug this into an old equation to get t = -6. So the final solution is (8, -6).

IXL E8 is your assignment just like yesterday. Get 15 problems correct. Keep track! I need to see your work on different assignment (notebook) paper. Show ALL your work on your paper. I will collect this when I get back. Thanks. Mr. S.

11-10-14
Today you're going to work with the substitution method. You did the graphing method on Friday (IXL E2). Here are the rules for substitution method: 1) Get a variable by itself in one of the equations 2) Plug the expression into the other equation for that variable 3) Solve that equation 4) Plug into the other equation to solve for the other variable.
Here is an example: 5x - 3y = 23
2x + y = 7

Step 1) Solve the 2nd equation for y: y = -2x+ 7 Step 2) Substitute that expression into the first equation for y
5x - 3(-2x+7) = 23 Step 3) Now solve that equation x= 4 Step 4) Now plug x=4 into the easiest old equation and solve for y. y= -2(4) + 7 y = -1 Then the final answer would be ( 4, -1)

IXl E6 is going to be your assignment. You must get 15 correct and you MUST show your work on assignment paper.
Keep track of how many you get correct and you must show all your work. I will collect your assignment paper when I get back. Please be good for Ms. Oxley. Thanks. Mr. S.

9-22-14
Sorry I could not be with you today... Today, you will work on Absolute Value Inequalities (woo-hoo....)..!! Here are some examples: |x| > 2 means the distance between x and 0 on the number line is more than two units away. Thus, it's all values more than 2 or less than negative two. If you would graph this, the two answers would go AWAY from each other. To make a long story short, greater than absolute value inequalities go AWAY from each other (kind of like an OR statement).
The statement |x| < 2 means the distance between x and 0 on the number line is less than two units away. Thus, it's all values less than 2 and more than -2 units away. If you would graph these answers on the number line they would go in towards each other. To make a long story short, less than absolute value inequalities go toward each other (kind of like an AND statement).
To solve these correctly ALWAYS get the absolute value by itself first of all. Then solve the statement without the | | symbols; this will get you the first answer, then solve the statement without the | | symbols and flip the switch and make the opposite side negative. This will get you two answers...REMEMBER... > statements go AWAY from each other and < statements go towards each other.
Examples 3a and 3b on page 43 in your textbook should show this clearly. Example 4 on page 44 is a really good example. You should open your textbooks and study these examples, especially on page 44.
For an assignment, you try problems 16-21 on page 45 of your textbook. I want 2 answers for each problem ( a number line answer and one in set-builder notation { } ). Also, worksheet 38 on my website (from 1.6 resource handouts) problems 1-4.

11-12-14

Lets work with IXL a little bit more, however, these shouldn't be like the last couple. These shouldn't take as long to complete. To do these IXLs correctly, you MUST graph them if they give you a graph. Here's a hint for successfully doing these: If the lines cross in only 1 place, theres 1 solution (consistent and independent). If they are parallel lines, there is no solution (inconsistent). If the graphs turn out to be the same line, there are infinitely many solutions (consistent and dependent).

Another hint: If the two lines have the same slope but different y-intercept, the lines are parallel.

Do IXLs E4 and E5. You must get 13 correct of each to be done. You DON'T need scratch paper for these.

If you do get done early, you may work on something else. Thanks. Mr. S.

11-11-14

Thanks for cooperating with Ms. Oxley. Please keep it down and work. Trust me, I wish I could be there with you. Today you're going to work with the Elimination Method. The goal here is to eliminate a variable, solve, then substitute the value back in and find the value of the other variable. Here is a basic example: 6j + 4k = -46 and 2j + 4k = -26. First notice you want to eliminate the k's; what you want is coefficients to match, but they have the same signs. So multiply the second equation by (-1) and you get -2j - 4k = 26. Now add this equation together with the first one and you get 4j = -20 so now you know that j = -5.... Plug this value into one of the old equations and you'll find out k = -4.

For this system: r - 6t = 44 and 9r + 12t = 0 notice no coefficients (numbers) match. So you need to multiply the first equation by 2 and then the t's would match and have opposite signs. You would have 2r - 12t = 88 then. Then you would add the two equations together and get 11r = 88. So r = 8; so if r = 8 you would plug this into an old equation to get t = -6. So the final solution is (8, -6).

IXL E8 is your assignment just like yesterday. Get 15 problems correct. Keep track! I need to see your work on different assignment (notebook) paper. Show ALL your work on your paper. I will collect this when I get back. Thanks. Mr. S.

11-10-14

Today you're going to work with the substitution method. You did the graphing method on Friday (IXL E2). Here are the rules for substitution method: 1) Get a variable by itself in one of the equations 2) Plug the expression into the other equation for that variable 3) Solve that equation 4) Plug into the other equation to solve for the other variable.

Here is an example: 5x - 3y = 23

2x + y = 7

Step 1) Solve the 2nd equation for y: y = -2x+ 7 Step 2) Substitute that expression into the first equation for y

5x - 3(-2x+7) = 23 Step 3) Now solve that equation x= 4 Step 4) Now plug x=4 into the easiest old equation and solve for y. y= -2(4) + 7 y = -1 Then the final answer would be ( 4, -1)

IXl E6 is going to be your assignment. You must get 15 correct and you MUST show your work on assignment paper.

Keep track of how many you get correct and you must show all your work. I will collect your assignment paper when I get back. Please be good for Ms. Oxley. Thanks. Mr. S.

9-22-14

Sorry I could not be with you today... Today, you will work on Absolute Value Inequalities (woo-hoo....)..!! Here are some examples: |x| > 2 means the distance between x and 0 on the number line is

more thantwo units away. Thus, it's all valuesmore than2 orless thannegative two. If you would graph this, the two answers would goAWAYfrom each other. To make a long story short, greater than absolute value inequalities goAWAYfrom each other (kind of like anORstatement).The statement |x| < 2 means the distance between x and 0 on the number line is

less thantwo units away. Thus, it's all valuesless than2 andmore than-2 units away. If you would graph these answers on the number line they would go intowardseach other. To make a long story short, less than absolute value inequalities gotowardeach other (kind of like anANDstatement).To solve these correctly

ALWAYSget the absolute value by itself first of all. Then solve the statement without the | | symbols; this will get you the first answer,then solve the statement without the | | symbols and flip the switch and make the opposite side negative. This will get you two answers...REMEMBER... > statements go AWAY from each other and < statements go towards each other.Examples 3a and 3b on page 43 in your textbook should show this clearly. Example 4 on page 44 is a really good example. You should open your textbooks and study these examples, especially on page 44.

For an assignment, you try problems 16-21 on page 45 of your textbook. I want 2 answers for each problem ( a number line answer and one in set-builder notation { } ). Also, worksheet 38 on my website (from 1.6 resource handouts) problems 1-4.
