4.2  pg. 213215 #2bc, 4f, 6d, 7ef, 9, 12, 15. Challenge: #19. answers may vary for 9b) 
34  Tues Oct 23  Solving Polynomial Inequalities I  4.3  pg. 225228 Use a chart to organize your solution instead of a “number line strategy” #1ab, 2, 5, 6*, 7abc. Challenge: #17. Error in back for 6e: should be $x \le \frac{3}{2} $ or $x \ge 3$ 
35  Wed Oct 24  Solving Polynomial Inequalities II  4.3  Do #7 first. #7ef, 3, 8, 9, 12, 13, 14, 15 use a graphing calculator or Desmos to confirm your answers **the text has answers rounded in the back, but you must state your answers as exact values Challenge: #18

Fri Oct 26  PD Day  
37  Mon Oct 29  Review Day 1  p. 241 #12 * use Desmos pp. 240241 #1b, 6acd, 7ad, 8cd, 10ad, 14c, 15 not only find an estimate at x=5, but find the exact rate of change too using the algebraically simplified difference quotient p. 242 Chapter SelfTest (allow a maximum of 45 minutes). Corrections to final answers: #8a should only have “less than” inequality signs. #8b  Answers may vary.
