Scribe post Monday Sept. 19

Well, the class started off with...a quiz! The quiz was out of eighteen and we corrected it right in class. Then, we did a few factoring questions from the board and the factoring questions had to do with "the difference of squares" (ex. x² - 4.) **NOTE: it is the difference of squares, meaning it needs to use subtraction and not addition (making it the sum of sqaures.) BUT, that's only for binomials...(i think...)
We also learned some things about perfect squares, perfect trinomials and the difference of cubes (x to the exponent three, subtract eight is an example of perfect cubes)....all of these things have certain rules that go with them.
By the end of class, I know many people were a bit confused but I'm sure with another class we should all be a bit better at knowing the rules and how to do all the things we started today.
**There is a test Wednesday**
Mr. Kuropatwa also reminded us that before each test, each student must have at least 1 post on the Blog. (Scribe post doesn't count) so everybody get your posts up!! I know I have a couple posts already up =) .

Today's homework is to finish the worksheet that was handed out after the quiz and Exercise 10 (omitting #12-15.) Hopefully we'll have time tomorrow to go through the questions we have about homework because I know I have quite a few.

That's the end of my post as scribe...tomorrow's scribe will be...(drumroll...) Diyaa. A reminder to Diyaa, you have to remind Mr. K. about telling us why (x² + 4) is not factorable.
See you all in class tomorrow!!
