Note: this is a 45 minute period right before lunch
if you need the extra 15 minutes you may stay into your lunch. This
will still give you 30 minutes for lunch!

DAY! Test is rescheduled for tomorrow. Read the note above!
Bring your lunch tomorrow so you won't have to buy. 
Please see all practice problems listed below! Make sure you take advantage of the
solutions posted. You should be and will be responsible for all
problems given!

Review all
your modeling problems, quadratic inequalities and domains of polynomial
functions as well as more complicated functions.
Study for test on Wednesday A day 02/02/11 
Extra Practice: 1. Problems in your text book: pg 315 do the practice quiz 1 13. Omit #'s 7, 8, 9 & 12. 2. Pg. 316 in your textbook problems 1, 2, & 3a. Click here for answers to assigned textbook problems on pgs 315 & 316 3. Click here for a mixed review of problem solving do only problems 1, 2, 3, 4, & 8 Note for problem #4: If you assume the football cross bar is 10/3 ft (convert the yds to ft). Tricky the problem gives you the height of the crossbar in yds not feet! The function is measured in ft not yds. You must convert the yds into ft so the units match. Don't worry any problems I give you tomorrow will have the same units! Click here for answers to the mixed review


D 
Click
here for worksheet on domains Read and practice quadratic Regression pg 311 example 4. This should not be difficult for you since you are familiar with the process for linear functions. Do the extra example 4 on your own for practice. Then do problems 48 & 49 on pg 314.

knowledge of quadratic functions to find the domain on more complicated
