(graphic, numeric, etc.) characteristic of families of functions; explore structural patterns within systems of objects, operations
III, 2, 2: Locate
and describe objects in terms of their orientation and relative position, including displacement (vectors), phase shift, maxima,
minima, and inflection points; give precise mathematical descriptions of symmetries.
After taking the quiz the day before and reviewing it as
a class, students will see what information they did not know for the quiz and will know what they need to study more for
the retake quiz on Monday.
having a class discussion regarding study habits, classroom participation, and homework, students will have a better understanding
of what is expected of them for this class and will also be informed that they will now have homework quizzes.
