What a great first week of mathematics! I am very pleased with the effort and enthusiasm of my classes! I think we're off to a great start! If there is anything we need to work on, it's making sure we're using the time at the end of class to get our assignments started, and to make sure our conversations are happening (and NOT happening) at the right times. Have a great weekend, I'm looking forward to more good math next week!

__Discrete Math__:

Today we asked and discussed the question "Is there a perfect voting method?" Each voting method has advantages and disadvantages. Choose the method that best works in your favor!

Today's assignment is twofold:

1) 10-2: 1-11 odds from the book, and

2) Enroll in the Discrete Math Moodle class and do the assigned forums (due next Thursday).

We will be having our first Flexible Attendance day on Monday; all students are eligible and may opt out of attending this day. Remember that just because attendance is optional does not mean there isn't any work to do! Check Moodle for an assignment. It will be labeled with the day's date, and may be posted early.

Upcoming: Quiz and Test next week.

__Algebra II__:

Today's lesson revolved around solving inequalities. Inequalities are just like equations, except instead of an "=" sign, they have a "<" or a ">". Inequalities are solved just like equations, unless you multiply or divide by a negative number, then you have to switch the direction of the inequality. It's easier than it sounds!

Today's assignment is 1-4: 3-17 odds, 18-24 evens, 27, 31, 41, 44, 47, 50, 62, 64, 67.

Upcoming: Quiz next Tuesday over week 1's material, Test next Friday over chapter 1.
