sec 3.4, quadratic relations

This was good practice finding the zeros, axis of symmetry, and vertexs. Plus drawing my own helped.

Sec 3.3, parts if a parabola

I remember parabolas well from applied math. This was still a good refresher of my memory. I didn't remember that the optimal value was the y coordinate of the vertex but now I know.

Sec 2.8, poi in special limes

This chart/ table Is useful for detecting types of lines. You can look at your triangle and using the table, easily see what kind of line or triangle your working with.

2.3 equation of a circle

This question challenged me to think and ask questions. I had to apply other knowledge in order to do certain steps of the problem. I saved this question for last and it left me feeling confident when I finished.

1.6 solving systems using elimination

The yellow part clarified the steps and made sure I knew what order to do things in.

1.4 solving using substitution

This made the steps more clear to me. It is much easier alternative to graphing them. It is also more accurate.

1.2 writing linear equations

This page help me get a basis on how to go about a problem like this and the steps to take.

Linear systems and how lines intercept

I found out about the infinite solutions because you can interpolate and extrapolate to infinity, therefore there is an infinite amount of places where the lines intercept.
