Mr. Hoven – Intermediate Algebra
2012 – 13
Introduction: This page is a brief outline for Intermediate Algebra with Mr. Hoven.
Attendance: In nearly three decades of teaching, good attendance is one of the most important things that a student can have to help him/her be successful. If a class is missed, it is important to get caught up as soon as possible….math builds one day upon the previous.
Daily Work: In class work and homework are essential for success. Homework counts as 25% of the class grade. Work is due at the start of the next class period. Late work is given half credit, if turned in by the end of the current chapter.
Tests and Quizzes: Tests and quizzes account for 75% of the class grade. Retests are not given.
Office Hours and Extra Help: Mr. Hoven encourages all students to come in for extra help when needed. Office hours are available every morning before school that there is not a meeting (every Wednesday has a meeting). Students are kept informed as soon as possible when Mr. Hoven learns of a scheduled meeting. After school hours Monday through Thursday until 3:30 p.m. are available when there are no meetings.
Contact: Mr. Hoven checks voice mail and email each school day (unless out of the building for meeting or illness). Voice and email are not checked evenings or weekends. Every attempt will be made to respond within 24 hours. Voice mail is 768 – 5438 and email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Behavior: Appropriate behavior is expected from all students. If a student is not able to improve behavior, or if improper behavior is significant, parents/ guardians/ administration will possibly become involved.
Calculators: It is very helpful if your student has a scientific calculator. A graphing calculator is not necessary, but will be helpful (I lend out some graphing calculators during class time so all students can keep up with the graphing, when necessary). If purchasing a graphing calculator, the TI 83 and 84 series is the preferred calculator.
Books: Books are new and should be cared well cared for. The entire textbook is online and available for all students/ parents/ guardians… my.hrw.com with username and password both being : WHSINTALG.

Wednesday, March 27 - MMM worksheets 42 and 43. Work in class...if not done in class it's out of class homework.
Thursday, March 28 - Experimental probability...sample space, outcome, event, likely, experimental probability...no hw...absent kid read section 10-5.

Friday, April 5 - On the Packet (three hole punched...given to students last week...the first page says "Lesson 14" on it....Read example #1 on page 90...only pay attention to Mean, Median, Mode, and Range on all these problems. HW from page 92-93 is #1-4,8,9,24,25 Those in class will be doing a coin and card experimental probability.
Monday, April 8 - Finally grade p.747. Learn about combinations and permutations. p. 764 #1-12. Absent students must also, read their packets on lesson 19 and 20, and if they haven't already, do p.93 (in packet) #23 and 24. Also, below the Friday lesson plan...do the combination and permutation practice worksheet......UPDATE: YIKES, the lecture took too long...we did not get to the homework today.
Tuesday, April 9 - All day practice problems from the chapter worksheet....UPDATE....today we will do the combination and permutation practice worksheet listed below Friday April 12. Also, you will get the first page of the "pretend" test. Also, learn how to do Combinations and Permutations the long way, and the short way. HW page 764 #1-11.
Wednesday, April 10 - get "combination/ permutation" pretend test (below), tiny "pretend" test with formulas. Also, look at problems on page 754.

Friday, April 12 - chapter test
Here Starts Chapter 11

Showing work, or what you did, can help you earn potential partial credit.
Forumlas: C = ( F – 32)
Probability of Independent Events: P (A and B) = P(A) * P(B)
Probability of Dependent Events: P (A and B) = P(A) * P(B after A)
1. The following are degrees in Fahrenheit. 55, 66, 66, 67, 84. Convert them to Celsius to the nearest tenth of a degree. Write them down. Calculate and/or state the mean, median, and range of these degrees.
2. How many committees (all members being equal) can be formed with 8 people choosing 4 people.
3. 7 people out of 10 are going to line up. How many ways might this happen?
4. Calculate 5. Calculate
5. In faction form, what is the probability of rolling a number cube twice, and four showing up both times?
6. In fraction form, from a standard deck of cards without replacement (52 total cards, 4 of them are eights) what is the probability that you choose an eight, then your next pick you get another eight.
7. There is a class of 17 girls and 13 boys. Each day the teacher randomly gives one lucky student a Safety Sucker. Assuming no absences, in percent form, what is the probability that a girls is the lucky student two days in a row?
