Lesson 1* (Note that an asterisk * indicates that there is a worksheet in this Lesson)
Welcome to your first day of school! I wanted to give you one important reminder before you begin. Many of your lessons below have an internet link for you to click on. When you go to the different internet pages for your lessons, please DO NOT click on anything else on that page except what the directions tell you to. DO NOT click on any advertisements or games. DO NOT click on anything that takes you to a different website. Just stay focused on your lesson and then close that window and you should be right back here for the next lesson. Okay?
 If you didn’t get here through My EP Assignments, I suggest you go there and create an account.
If a link is not working, follow the steps on the FAQ page.
 *Print out your first quarter grading sheet or use the Excel version. Save this sheet and record your scores.
 Watch the presentation introducing algebra.
 Read the topic text (#4 in the list).
 Do the practice and review. They are both on the link above.
 Read the definitions and solve the crossword puzzle.
 Watch the presentation on “Why and When” and read the topic text.
 This is the end of your work for this course for your first day. You are allowed to move at your own pace (this is homeschooling), but it’s intended you complete one lesson a day.
Lesson 2
 Do all of the available parts of the lesson on approaching problems.
 Remember that the topic text is always available for reminder, review, help, or to learn the lesson if that is easier for you than the video.
Lesson 3
 Do the warmup, presentation, worked examples as necessary and practice for solving equations.
 You get a point for any you get correct before it shows you the answer (1 or 2 tries). There were twelve all together. You can see them in the list on the result page.
 Divide the total by two. Record your score out of 6 for the practice problems.
Lesson 4
 If you want to move more quickly, DO NOT do the review on the same day as the lesson. The point of putting the review on the next day is to try to force the information into your longer term memory instead of using it only in your short term memory (which would allow you to easily forget it and leave it behind). If you want to move on, after a review lesson, you can start the next lesson. You could do the whole thing or just watch the presentation. Then the next day you could use the text and worked examples. You can find what groove works best for you.
 Do the review from solving equations.
 Record your score out of 5.
 Review as directed if you missed any. Then you may retake the review at this point for a new score. You may add a half point for any newly correct answers if you can correctly solve them now and haven’t just cheated.
 Go through this lesson on exponents to refresh your memory on the topic.
 If it were 2 to the third power, what would the answer be?
 8
 2 x 2 x 2 = 4 x 2 = 8
 If it were 2 to the third power, what would the answer be?
 Play Connect Four with equations. Click on twostep equations. (Here’s a walk through of onestep equations. Here’s practice with twostep equations. Make the blocks on the scales match the expression. If the expression says 3x + 1 on one side, drag three x blocks and one 1 block onto the scale on the same side.)
 Almost every other lesson is a review lesson. It gives two days to learn each new lesson. Make sure you get 100% on the lesson before you move on. There will also be another review activity on these days to have more practice on other topics from the course.
 Early in the course, these lessons may go by quickly because it is probably going to be a bit easy for you.

Lesson 33 Roller coaster project
 You will be working on a roller coaster project over the next 4 lessons.
 Let’s look at a sample graph for a roller coaster. Looking at this diagram and using what you have learned so far about functions and equations, can you identify which areas of track might be described by proportional, linear, and nonlinear functions? (This is NOT asking you to write complicated functions. Can you identify an area that would be proportional? linear? nonlinear?)
 Do this worksheet to practice using an algebra function to solve a problem. This is also giving you an idea of how to graph a drop section of a roller coaster!
 You can check your worksheet answers.
 You can read over and start planning ideas for your project. You will be drawing/designing a roller coaster. You will be using the Dream Scream Machine worksheet to help you write a function for the tallest drop of your roller coaster. You can also look at this grading rubric to see how it will be graded.
Lesson 34
 Do this worksheet to practice applying algebra functions to roller coasters. This worksheet is a further look into functions of the drop portion of a roller coaster. In part 1 you will substitute times into the drop function to find the height at that portion of the drop.
 You can check your worksheet answers.
 Read over the project again and start planning your project.
 Requirements:
 Completed worksheets (demonstrating you understand algebraic functions applied to roller coasters)
 Poster showing your roller coaster (at least two hills and a loop), information about the highest drop, labels showing sections of various function types (proportional, linear, nonlinear)
 Draw out your roller coaster. There needs to be at least two hills (for one of which you will be writing a function for the drop) and a loop. You do not need to write functions for the other portions of this roller coaster. You DO need to identify if there are areas that would be linear, nonlinear, or proportional.
 Written report. Write a onepage paper that answers the questions from the Dream Scream Machine worksheet and discusses how your roller coaster uses functions. You do not need to know the equations for all the functions your roller coaster uses, but you should be able to identify which type of function describes specific sections of track (proportional, linear, nonlinear). Include graphs, tables (like the table from the worksheet), and equations (the equation for your highest drop) to support your discussion.
 This grading rubric will be used to score your presentation.

Time for a report card and portfolio/records updating.
Portfolio/records: In your portfolio you should include a couple of your assignments from this quarter. You could take screen shots of different quizzes/exercises. Keep any written work. Keep your papers neat.
This is how you find your grade: add up all the grades you have been recording for this quarter. Add up your scores and write that number down.
Divide your score by total possible. Move the decimal point over two places to the right. In the next box over, write the number in front of the decimal (something between 1 and 100). This is your percent grade. In the next box over, write your letter grade. Anything starting with a 9 is an A. Anything starting with an 8 is a B. Anything starting with a 7 is a C and so forth. If you have everything perfect, then your grade is 100. That’s an A too.
Your goal is to get an A for the course at the end of the year. Go back and look at where you lost points. What can you do to avoid losing those points in the next quarter?

Lesson 57
 The SAT is a test you’ll take in 11th grade. It is required by colleges. You will need a good score to show the college of your choice that you will be a good student. A good score also shows that you’ve been learning something and not just home playing video games.
 In 10th grade you can take a practice test called the PSAT. Some schools give full scholarships to students who score very high. That could save your parents $100,000! So do your best 🙂
 When you take the PSAT or SAT, you need to know how to play the game. It’s a bit of a game and knowing the rules will help you win.
 You get 1 point for each correct answer. You get zero points for anything left blank. You lose a quarter of a point if you get one wrong. So it’s not a good idea to just guess. If you can eliminate at least one answer, then your odds of guessing the right one increase, and statistically speaking, it’s in your favor to guess. If you can eliminate two or more of the answers, then you really should guess at the answer. Of course it’s best to know the answer!
 NOTE! As of 2015 the PSAT is eliminating the penalty for a wrong answer. So it is best to guess if you don’t know! Don’t leave any answers blank.
 NOTE! As of 2016 the SAT is eliminating the penalty for a wrong answer. That means you should never leave an answer blank. Just guess if you don’t know.
 Try these PSAT math practice questions. There are explanations below.
 Here’s another reason not to cheat. The truth has a way of making itself known. If your PSAT/SAT scores don’t match up with your grades, everyone will know something is up. Just copying answers won’t help you learn anything and it will eventually show if you aren’t learning.
Lesson 58
 The PSAT and the SAT are also timed tests. You have to stop when time is up. Give it a try.
 Give yourself thirty minutes to complete this test. Read the directions below before you begin.
 Get the timer ready and then begin. If you have time left over, go back and look over your answers to make sure you are happy with them.
 Don’t flip out if you feel like you don’t know something. Use your brain. Look at the question. Look at what you do know. Look at the answers for what is reasonable .
 Record your score out of 15 (1/2 point each).

Lesson 70
 You are starting a business project that you will present at the end of Lesson 74. You can look at the checklist so you have an idea of what you will be expected to have.
 You are owner of a small factory and you have equipment set up capable of making the following products. You will be working over the next few days to determine how many units you will need to produce to earn a specific profit goal. You will ultimately need to create visual aids and graphs to explain your decision for units of production.
 Listed below are the products and the cost to produce one unit.
Product  Cost to Produce One Unit 
Wobbly Shades  $3.75 
Moon Slides  $15.35 
Ribbit Snacks  $1.25 
Pillow Frills  $7.25 
Book Cuddler  $4.55 
Burrito Bundler  $3.75 
Banana Masher  $2.68 
Elephant Teether  $5.98 

 Choose a product to produce.
 Determine the minimum sales price needed to cover the cost to produce the item. You will make an inequality statement showing the possible values for a sales price. Display this inequality on a number line.
 Now you are going to create a graph of the profit as a function of units sold.
 If you want to earn a profit of at least $500, how many units would you need to sell.
 Profit = (sale price – cost to produce) x units
 What might be a maximum sales price? What is the highest you think the public would be willing to pay to purchase the product? For the purposes of this assignment, your maximum sales price should not be more than 2.5 times the production cost. Create an equation and a graph for that price, again using $500 for the profit goal. (You can graph it on the same graphing sheet so you can easily compare them.)
 Create function tables for each equation to show the profit at 3 different levels of production.
 Choose a product to produce.
Equation:  Equation:  
X value  Y value  X value  Y value  
Lesson 71
 In this lesson, you will choose a different product and repeat the process from the previous lesson.
 Develop your inequality to determine minimum sale price.
 Decide on a potential maximum sale price.
 Create equations for both the minimum and maximum sales prices.
 Create function tables for both the minimum sales price equation and the maximum sales price equation.
Lesson 72
 In today’s lesson you will be making 2 variable equations. You will use $500 as the overall profit goal.
profit per unit x units of product X + profit per unit x units of product Y ≥ profit goal For example, if I chose Wobbly Shades at a sales price of $5.75 and Ribbit Snacks at a sales price of 2.75, my equation would be
2x + 1.5y ≥ 500
 For example, if I chose Wobbly Shades at a sales price of $5.75 and Ribbit Snacks at a sales price of 2.75, my equation would be
 You will need to graph this. You will need to change your equation into y ≥ mx +b format.
 Using my example again:
2x + 1.5y ≥ 500
2x 2x
1.5y ≥ 2x + 500
÷1.5 ÷1.5
y ≥ 4/3 x + 1000/3
 Using my example again:
 Graph this equation. This graph will give you possible x and y values.
 Create a function table to show 3 possible units of production levels for your x value (product X) and your y value (product Y) that would allow you to earn the $500 profit goal.
Lesson 73
 Today you will create a presentation for your production line choice. Use this as your checklist of what you need to do. Then, when you give your presentation, give this checklist to your audience for them to evaluate your project.
Lesson 74

Lesson 85
 Start the Say What? project. Read over it today to get an idea of what the project requires.
 You will have a written and an oral presentation of your findings.
 Read the rubric. You will score up to 8 points; 4 for the written content, and 4 for the oral presentation.
 You have four days. Read the directions and make a list of everything you need to do. Make a plan for how you are going to finish on time. It’s okay to get ahead of schedule, but not behind.
 You need to choose ONE of the domain/range sets. You will use the set you choose to make a story line. (Problem 1)
Ex: I’m going to choose this set.
 Decide what the x values represent and what the y values represent. Make up data tables and a graph for your story line. (Problem 2)
Ex: I’m going to imagine that I own a restaurant and I’m buying new uniforms for the staff. I have 10 staff members. There are two options I’m considering for uniforms. One option is $63/person. The other is $88/person. My domain (xaxis) will be number of employees. My range will be cost of uniform.  You can use this program to create a graph instead of the one suggested in Problem 3. If there are other programs you are more familiar with, you can use those. Excel and similar spreadsheet based programs can create graphs. (another graphing alternative). You can handdraw your graph if you’d like.
 Problem 4 asks you to find the equation of the lines you have graphed.
Remember: Find two points on one of your lines. Using those 2 points, find the slope. Find the yintercept (the value of y when x is zero). Once you have the slope and yintercept, you can find the equation.  Write your story line and algebraic question. (This is your opportunity to be creative and maybe even make light of some of the algebra questions you have come across.)
 Prepare an oral presentation. You will want to have visual aids to present as well, for example, a poster with your graphs.

Time for a report card and portfolio/records updating.
Portfolio/records: In your portfolio, you should include a couple of your assignments from this quarter. You could take screen shots of different quizzes/exercises. Keep any written work. Keep your papers neat.
This is how you find your grade: add up all the grades you have been recording for this quarter. Add up your scores and write that number down.
Divide your score by total possible. Move the decimal point over two places to the right. In the next box over, write the number in front of the decimal (something between 1 and 100). This is your percent grade. In the next box over write your letter grade. Anything starting with a 9 is an A. Anything starting with an 8 is a B. Anything starting with a 7 is a C and so forth. If you have everything perfect, then your grade is 100. That’s an A too.
Your goal is to get an A for the course at the end of the year. Go back and look at where you lost points. What can you do to avoid losing those points in the next quarter?

 Solve this puzzle. Which two of these painters working together would paint the room in three hours?
 Peter paints a room in 5 hours.
 Paul paints it in 6 hours.
 Neil paints it in 7.5 hours.
 Mary paints it in 3.75 hours.
 (This puzzle is from NROC algebra course. Hint: If it takes Bob 3 hours to paint a room and it takes Jeff 5 hours to paint the same room, how many hours would it take if the two painters work together? Many students will attempt to take an average and come up with an answer of 4 hours, but 4 hours doesn’t make sense. Why would it take longer than Bob working alone? Surely the two painters would complete the room in less than 3 hours. Find the rate at which each painter paints.)
 Answer: (Peter and Neil, 1/5 per hour + 2/15 per hour = 1/3 of a room per hour or 1 room per three hours)

 Your final will be on Lesson 180. Here’s a study packet for you. It covers a few things we didn’t, so don’t worry about those. Don’t worry about those. Also, probability will not be on your final.
Lesson 172
 Do the warmup and presentation for probability of dependent events. Use the worked examples and topic text to help you. (Note: The answer for “probability that both are hearts” question in 3 is not a fully reduced fraction.)
 Complete the practice.
 Record your score out of 6 for the practice problems. You get a point for any you get correct before it shows you the answer. Divide the total by two.
Lesson 173
 Do the review from probability of dependent events.
 Record your score out of 5.
 Review as directed if you missed any. Then you may retake the review at this point for a new score.
 Keep reviewing for the final.

Lesson 176
 You can use this test as an example of your final. Only work on problems through number 42. The answers are at the end.
Lesson 177
 This is a good place for review. You can try the problems on the worksheets and then watch the videos if necessary in order to see the answers, or try the quizzes if you think you got it.
 If that link ever stops working, here are those same videos on YouTube.

Lesson 180*
 *Print your answer sheet.
 Take your final exam. Do through number 45.
 Check your answers. (Scroll to the end. The answers are on page 35.)
 Add 5 points to your score.
 Record your score out of 50.
 Take the polls. Take them seriously so that they can help other students.
 You can include this test in your portfolio.
 Figure your course grade. Enter on your fourth quarter grading sheet your total score for each quarter. Divide by the total score from all four quarters. That can be your grade, but I also think you can award up to half of the grade for completing the daily assignments. Then you would take the grade you just calculated, divide it in half and add it to 50, or whatever grade you deem appropriate. Example of the scoring calculation:
 four quarters total: 126 + 115 + 110 + 233 = 584 (sample numbers, not reflective of this course)
 dividing by total possible 584 669 = .87 * 100 = 87%
 dividing in half for being worth half the grade: 44%
 100% completion of daily assignments, readings, homework, etc.
 Half of that 100% for being worth half of the final grade: 50%
 Final grade would be: 50 + 44 = 94%, A
