complete your homework for understanding

5. precal

what topic are you studying maybe we can help you remember concepts

Take the advice of my math teacher: 1) Be able to explain to a little child in a way that child can understand it. 2) Be as familiar with the material as you are with the face of a friend, or as familiar as you are with your own hand. 3) No excuses. Go to the library borrow some books and work on the problems until you understand them. (No kidding, he really says this to us.)

7. precal

just means to Keep It Simple

8. Gabbyluvzpink

Wow. Well, we are doing a lot of graphing systems of equations, and it is all online. The most frustrating thing about it is if you just barley get off one point when you graph it online it counts it wrong. :(

9. precal

graphing systems of equations there are only 3 possibilities

10. precal

|dw:1352424405493:dw|2 lines that cross in one place therefore it is a one solution

11. precal

|dw:1352424437704:dw|2 lines that do not cross and that is called a no solution

typically, you math teacher will create test questions that look "a lot" like your homework questions. So one of the best ways to get ready is to do the homework. You can also ask if your teacher will provide old tests for you to work on.

|dw:1352424470788:dw| many solutions because two lines overlap each other in many places 2x+3y=4 4x+6y=8 same line

14. Gabbyluvzpink

Well, all the tests are online and generated online. We use an online program, and we have just started it this year.

15. precal

does not matter, systems only have 3 possible solutions 1) one solution 2) no solution 3) many solutions

16. Gabbyluvzpink

Isn't it infinitely many solutions if they overlap in one straight line?

17. precal

yes same line, one drawn exactly over itself

18. Gabbyluvzpink

Yeah. I just get really nervous during the tests, so I completely forget everything. :(

19. precal

that is why you take your favorite pencil and your favorite eraser.

20. Gabbyluvzpink

Lol. Will do. Thanks. :)

21. precal

I also, take my favorite soft drink....... mints,..........gum....., sunflower seeds keep me busy and then always look at the whole test before you start they say your mind is trying to solve the problems while you take an exam. So look for problems you can do and then go back to the ones that require a little more thought

22. Gabbyluvzpink

Wow. That's interesting. And I usually do look for the ones that I can do and then go back to the harder ones.
