Thus far you only know how to solve a polynomial if it can be manipulated to a quadratic. We will not look at other methods for finding these roots until after our test Friday.<br /><br />The test this Friday will include only our Quadratic information (Solving for "a", using matrices, word problems, and finding the roots).

You had to create a scale drawing of your quadratic creation, and then find the equation representing your model. There were some very creative creations and everyone found their equivalent "a" values using both methods of solving. <br /><br /><span style="color:#000000;">This week there will be no posts due to class trips.

First we found the equation using our original method discussed in class yesterday (using the vertex to find the standard equation, and then solving for "a"). Then we introduced using Matrices to solve a quadratic equation. This was a brief introduction to Matrices, as we will spend an entire chapter on them next semester, but it is important that you see how useful they can be for solving Systems of equations and Quadratics.</p><p>If you were not in class you should visit the website on the right to see the steps in solving a Matrix. </p><p>We also analyzed these two equations (one from each method), and discussed the importance of "a" in the equation, and why the vertex is almost irrelevant! It all depends on exactly how you set up the graph, but you will always have the same parabola, as long as your "a" is the same. The other numbers just give you the transformations!!!</p><p><span style="color:#00cccc;">Have a great time at the Fall Festival!!!</span></p><p><span style="color:#ff0000;">Coming up:</span></p><p><span style="color:#ff0000;">- If you were not in class you should complete this worksheet (just numbers 1-6)</span></p><p><span style="color:#ff0000;">- Tomorrow we will use these same techniques to find another famous arch!!</span></p><p><span style="color:#3333ff;">Posting for Points:</span></p><p><span style="color:#3333ff;">Can you think of another famous arch?

You should now be able to also apply these concepts to a word problem.<br /><br />Tonight for homework you must determine the equation (a quadratic) representing the St. Louis Arch using the picture provided in class.

If you were not in class you definitely need to get some notes from someone, but you can check out the examples on pages 131-134.

We talked about both the "normal" equation and the standard equation. Be sure that you know how to use each, and how to change from one type to the other. You should also know what the vertex and the axis of symmetry are in a quadratic function.

Overall they were very good! Another job well done. Be sure to review ALL of your test material for the midterm this Friday!<br /><br />We also looked at some Problem Solving situations using the material from the last chapter.

Make sure you know how to plot data on your calculator, find the regression line, and understand how to put that information back into the context of the problem. This material WILL be on the midterm.<br /><br />We discussed 4 different types of Variation: Direct, Inverse, Exponential, and Joint.

You should have taken data on several variables including: weight of bag, # of M&M's per bag, # of each color, etc. <br /><br />In class you completed a set of questions dealing with the graph of the Weight vs. # in each bag, and found the regression line for this data.

Be sure that you correct and review all of these problems for your test Wednesday.<br /><br />After the review problems we introduced Mathematical Modeling, the process of analyzing and interpreting data. We learned the process for graphing statistical data, as well as finding the Linear Regression line for any set of points. Remember, when looking at a linear regression line you use the correlation coefficient to determine how exact your line fits the given data. The closer to 1, the better the fit. If you need a review of how to graph this data on the calculator click the link to the right.<br /><br />For this weekend you need to do some research on the exponential growth of the Starbucks franchise. You should use the link on the right and navigate through until you find the Company Timeline. Read over the timeline as it gives interesting information. As you go through the information create a table of growth since the first franchise. Your first year will be 1971 when the first Starbucks opened in Seattle. Start this year as 0, and continue up from there. Notice that there will not be a number for every year, so only include what is given in this timeline. We will use this data next week!<br /><br /><span style="color:#66cccc;">Have a nice LONG weekend!</span><br /><br /><span style="color:#ff0000;">Coming up: </span><br /><span style="color:#ff0000;">- Homework: Create a table of values for the year and # of Starbucks stores at the end of that given year. </span><br /><span style="color:#ff0000;">- Test will be Wednesday October 10th!</span><br /><br /><span style="color:#3333ff;">Posting for Points: </span><br /><span style="color:#3333ff;">Where was the first Starbucks?
