Exploring Factors (graded)
Let's look more closely at the greatest common factor (GCF) of a problem. Apply your
knowledge of GCFs (13.1) to simplify a problem presented by a classmate. You will need
to factor the problem and post your simplified expressio

Special Factors Techniques (graded)
As you become more familiar with factoring, you will notice there are some factoring
problems that follow specific patterns.These patterns are known as
o a difference of squares;
o a perfect square trinomial;
o a differ

Graphs (graded)
This week, we begin graphing systems of simultaneous equation. Before we begin looking at the
many graphs you can find out on the Web, let's review our knowledge of 2-D graphs. These
graphs are known as 2-D because they have two axes. One

Square Roots (graded)
There are many famous contributors to mathematics.Pythagoras is one, but there are many,
many other. Please write a short paragraph (5-10 sentences) looking at one of these contributors.
DO NOT PICK SOMEONE THAT A CLASSMATE HAS ALREA

Solving Equations Using Square Roots (graded)
Apply your knowledge of square roots to solve equations involving them. Show your step-bystep solution. Then, post another example for someone else to solve. Remember, each problem
should have two solutions.
I

Understanding Functions (graded)
Functions seem like they have a language of their own. Lets look at this new language and the
terms it uses. You see terms such as: relation, function, functional notation, x-intercept, yintercept, axis of symmetry, maximu

Solving Systems of Equations (graded)
There are three ways of solving systems of linear equations: graphing, substitution, and
elimination. Post a problem and show your step-by-step solution using one of the three methods.
