Pam L in Mid Tenn Posted January 31, 2012 Share Posted January 31, 2012 I don't think my 11th grade son will complete all the sections in his math book before grades are due in June. (We are under an umbrella.) I'd like to eliminate a chapter or two. We might "go over" those chapters working only a few problems and not testing or we might skip a chapter or two. He is in Chapter 4 of the 5th edition of Tobey/Slater's Intermediate Algebra. Which of the following chapters would you skip? Chapter 6 Rational Expressions and Equations ( He has already covered most of this material in MUS and a Dolicani text.) Chapter 7 Rational Exponents and Radicals (covered in above books already) Chapter 9 Conic Sections Chapter 10 Additional Properties of Functions Chapter 11 Logarithmic and exponential functions If we review Chapters 6 and 7, I'm not sure we could cover Chapters9, 10, and 11 well. I want to cover the following chapters very well because I feel they are ESSENTIAL: Chapter 5 polynomials Chapter 8 Quadratic equations and inequalities By the way, we finally settled on this particular Alg 2 book in Nov. It is fantastic! He is doing GREAT! I'm just wanting to slow down the pace at this point and make sure we've covered the essentials of Alg 2 WELL. What say you?
