Fri, Dec 4 (both classes)

Read section 4.1. Then do problems #13-25 odd on p 431 (section 4.1). For each problem, graph the pair of equations on GeoGebra, and then use the Point tool (the letter A in the toolbar on the top row) to find the solution to the system. Copy a rough sketch of the graph onto your homework paper, and beneath the graph write the answer to the problem. Also do this for the system {y =x^2, y = 2x+7}. You will see that the graphs for this last pair of equations meet in two points, so the system will have two different solutions. If you have trouble getting GeoGebra, you can do this assignment online at https://www.desmos.com/calculator, but make sure you have GeoGebra on your laptop by next class.
