IT IS CRUCIAL THAT THE STUDENT HAS A TI-89! NOW IS THE TIME TO EXPERIMENT WITH THE CALCULATOR.

We will begin the year by dividing into groups and beginning group work on a Take-Home Test. The test is a group effort and the assignment is a previously released (by College Board) Free Response portion of an AP Exam. 

Turn in (for score) AP Group Test: Due 09/10/2012. Scoring will begin on Tuesday, 09/11/2012.


Students will begin to have Pop-Quizzes over "using the TI-89" which is an integral part of this course.

Read pages 1-11 and be prepared to discuss the material on Wednesday. We are in the text offically now.

Homework: "Box problem" and #3,4 on page 25.
Write y=|x-2|-|x+3| as a piece-wise function, graph it (by hand), graph it in the original form on the TI, and graph it as a piece-wise function on the TI.

Work #17, 18, 20, 27, 28 on page 37.
