SL1 - 9/4/17

OK folks, we're off! This week we go into the quadratic formula, understanding and using the discriminant, and beginning to graph quadratic functions. There are a lot of ideas, but hopefully they are all things you've seen before and they will come back with some review. It's very important to be thorough here at the beginning as we will use these ideas throughout the course. Feel free to email me or find me any time if you have questions or feel things slipping away. See you in class,
Mr. Alei

OK - we're off! We start off pretty gradually, but be attentive - there is a lot of terminology and many foundational ideas are coming fast. Work with it all to fluidity to help smooth the way as the ideas get more complex. See you in class,
