### Sp #6: Unit k concept 10: writing a repeated decimal as a rational number using geometric series

One must pay attention to a few things. Firstly, one should read the steps and explanations written in blue ink in order to understand the work. Secondly, pay attention to the formulas for it is easy to miss a key part of them.

### Fibonnaci Haiku: Working Out

Workout

Squats

Swaggity swag

Dat protein tho

Do you even lift bro?

Got so much muscle, you don't even know

### SP 4: Unit J Concept 5: Partial Fraction Decomposition with Distinct Factors

One must pay special attention to several things to get this. First off, one must be careful to not make any mistakes, for they could be fatal. Also pay attention to the factors; needless to say, those are important (understatement of the day). Also, pay attention to my writing, I shamefully admit that I do not own the most remarkable penmanship (also the first picture was incorrectly took and the result was a hard to read, vertical image). As the great writer Sophocles once quoted, "My bad, dawg."

### SV #5: Unit J Concepts 3-4: Solving three- variable systems with Gaussian Elimination and Solving non-square systems (matrices)

It is very important to pay special attention to several key elements of this awesome video. First off, it is very important to pay attention to each step individually so as to understand what is being done. Second, it is important to use the correct row for each step. Also, be certain that all your work is done properly, for matrices are very complicated.

### SV #4: Unit I Concept 2: Graphing logarithmic functions and identifying x- intercepts, y - intercepts, asymptote, domain, range (4 points on graph minimum)

### SP #3: Unit I Concept 1: Graphing exponential functions and identifying x- intercept, y- intercept, asymptotes, domain, range (4 points on graph minimum)

Hey this is Michael C. from Period 5. In this picture we will be graphing an exponential equation and identifying key parts. The equation we will be using is y = 5(1/2)^(x - 1) + 1. First you will identify the a, the b, the h, and the k. The next logical thing to do is find the equation for the asymptote which should be y = k. Then You find the x- intercept by setting y to zero (it should be undefined for this problem since the asymptote is y = 1 and the graph must be above it so the graph will never come into contact with the x- axis.) and the y- intercept by setting x to zero. Domain for these problems will always be all real numbers since the graph goes infinitely to the left and right. Range will depend on the asymptote and wheter the graph is above or below it, and it's above in this problem. Next you want to use some key points and the h should be your 3rd point. Plug the equation into the calculator and use the table to get the points and plot the points. You know that the graph should be heading toward the asymptote on the right side since the absolute value of b is less than 1. And that is all.

When solving this problem one must pay attention to a few things. Firstly you must be precise in identifying a- k. Second, you must make note that the x- intercept is undefined because of the asymptote. Also, you must remember that there are no restrictions for the domain and the range depends on the asymptote.

### SV #3 Unit H Concept 7: Finding logs using approximations (treasure hunt)

## Monday, October 7, 2013

### SV 2: Unit G Concepts 1-7: Finding asymptotes and holes and graphing rational functions.

2). One must pay attention to several things while doing this problem. Firstly, one must be sure to factor the function correctly and be careful when doing long division for the slant asymptote. Additionally, it is important to remember to put parentheses in the correct places when plugging the function into a graphing calculator. If the parentheses are left out, the graph will be wrong in the calculator.

### SV #1: Unit F Concept 10: Given polynomial of 4th or 5th degree, find all zeroes (real and complex)

2). The viewer must pay attention to several things. One major thing the viewer needs to pay attention to is that the polynomial we are using doesn't have a term for x to the first degree. Thus, the viewer mustn't forget to put in a placeholder when doing synthetic division otherwise the problem can go wrong. Also, the viewer must pay attention to how to put the non factorable quadratic into factor form once the irrational zeroes are found.

### SP #2: Unite E Concept 7: Graphing polynomials, including: x -int, y-int, zeroes (with multiplicities), end behavior. All polynomials will be factorable.

(1) This problem will go over how to graph a polynomial and find the characteristics stated in the above title. In this particular problem, we will be using the quartic polynomial x^4 - 4x^3 - 12x^2. In order to complete the problem, we will be going through a number of steps, including factoring the polynomial, finding end behavior, solving for the x and y intercepts, calculating extrema and intervals of increase/decrease, and of course graphing.

(2)The reader must pay attention to detail for a little mistake could ruin the entire graph. Also, one thing the reader must be attentive to is the set window when plugging the polynomial into a graphing calculator to graph. This is because the problem results in large numbers and as a result the graph does not fit into the standard zoom.

### SP #1: Unit E Concept 1 Identifying x- intercepts, y- intercepts, vertex (max/min), axis of quadratics and graphing them.

(2) The viewer may not understand the concept if certain things go unnoticed. One of these things is that the viewer must be careful to complete the square correctly otherwise the rest of the information of the problem will be wrong. Additionally, the viewer must pay attention to the numbers meticulously because there is quite some work to do and simple mistakes can cause incorrect answers.

Step 1 includes completing the square. The first picture shows this step. We started with 2x^2 + 12x +6 = 0 and we ended up with 2(x + 3)^2 = 5.
