    Parametric Word Problems Day 1
     
    Follow Example 5 on page 692 to set up for projectile motion.  For motion that is not projectile (example 6), note that the y values are just numbers that are made up.
    This is because if you want to see it on your calculator, you need to give each motion it's own elevation or you won't be able to see it.  You also have to pick a y value that
    is greater than zero, otherwise you won't see the motion on your calulator because the line will run on bottom of screen.  This is why they made the y values 2 and 4, but there is no magic to choosing 2 or 4.  You just need to select two different values greater than zero for the y portions.  Lastly, you will want to set the mode on your calculator from sequential to simultaneous to see the motion happening at once.  The calcualtor does a very crude job of demonstration but it is still worth doing.  Not very useful as a tool for solving though, algebraic method is best.

     Review Work:
     
    Practice Set # 51 Three things to do, please pay attention and read carefully:

    Part One:  This worksheet you are required to do about 40% of it.  You choose the area of focus based upon your math needs.      click here for worksheet and KEY KEY
     
    It has a few challenging limits on it that were not represented in our book work.  Try them out.
     
     
     Part Two:   Only do #2 or 3 problmes 75-81 odd (not the whole worksheet)  Click here for worksheet and key
     
     
    Part Three:  Chapter Review page 914.  You choose which odd problems to do from # 1-30.  I suggest you do most of  #31-50 odd.  Be sure to do some from # 55-71, and # 75-80.  There is no requirement on how many you must do.  The purpose is to do what you need to do to become fluent.
     
     
     REMEMBER THE PURPOSE OF PRACTICING PROBLEMS IS TO STRENGHTHEN YOUR MATH BASE, AS SUCH YOU NEED TO BE SELECTIVE ABOUT WHERE YOU PERSONALLY NEED TO FOCUS YOUR PRACTICE.  YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO DO ALL THIS WORK.  THE ASSIGNMENT IS TO SUBMIT PROOF OF YOUR PRACTICE VIA GOOGLE CLASSROOM.  IT IS NOT ABOUT QUANTITY DONE BUT RATHER ABOUT PREPARATION FOR THURSDAY'S LEARNING CHECK.
