## MCF3M – Oct 3, 2014

I began the class today by taking up any questions the students had from yesterday’s homework.  There were 2 questions that the students asked me to take up so I took them up on the board.  After taking up the questions, I then told the students that there was one more example I wanted them to add to yesterday’s lesson which was titled “2.3 Factoring Quadratic Expressions of the Form ax^2+bx+c where a = 1”.  I did the example and told the students I noticed that this was a good question for them to know how to do so I wanted to give them an example for it.  I then moved on to the new lesson for today which was titled “2.4 Factoring Quadratic Expressions of the Form ax^2+bx+c where a is not equal to 1”.  I did 3 different methods for the first examples to show the students a few different ways to factor a complex trinomial and then I did some more examples using 1 of the methods.  After the lesson I then assigned the homework for the students to work on (Pages 109 & 110 #2, 4 – 7).  I gave the students an option of either playing a review game of jeopardy as a class or working on their homework.  Some did both, but I was able to get everyone to get a chance to play.  We then played jeopardy until the end of the period.  A link to the jeopardy can be found below (this game was made to review sections 2.1 to 2.3 of the textbook).

Below you will find a copies of the handouts/worksheets that were distributed/assigned in today’s class.

Take-up of the homework from Oct 2 (Page 100 #7 & 9b)
