T Instructions for the student:
Your Course Code is: PENPL-NRYLH
Your Financial Aid Access Code is: F19E9-454A2-05998-3BA97
The Financial Aid Access Code does not add an additional two weeks to your account.
NOTE: This code gives you temporary access to ALEKS for a two-week period. Once the code expires, you will be locked out of your ALEKS account until you purchase a regular Student Access Code. It is highly recommended that you purchase the Student Access Code BEFORE the two weeks expire to prevent interruptions with your ALEKS account.
1. To log into ALEKS using the Financial Aid Access Code, go to: http://www.aleks.com.
2. Click on the "SIGN UP NOW!" link located under the login box on the left of the page.
3. Enter your Course Code in the box labeled "Using ALEKS with a Class?" and click on "Continue."
4. Verify that you are registering for the correct course and click on "Continue." Enter the 20-character Financial Aid Access Code.
5. Continue with the registration process until your account has been set up successfully.
6. After you complete your account set up you will be logged into ALEKS and can immediately begin working in the course.
7.You can extend your ALEKS account at any time by clicking on "extend your account" and entering a purchased Student Access Code. If your temporary access expires before you purchase a Student Access Code, simply log in to ALEKS and you will be directed on how to extend your current account. You will then be able to continue your course where you left off before the temporary access expired. You do NOT need to create a new ALEKS account to continue your cou

When you are ready, here is the cost of the ALEKS software. I recommend ALEKS 360 for 18 weeks. For an extra $39 you can get a year long access code, but it is unlikely your precalculus teacher will use ALEKS. Talk to me first before making this purchase.


 

Rubric for Presentation:

1. Were you reviewed? Who reviewed you?

2. Were you prepared with your worksheet, calculator, and poster?

3. Did you introduce self and express why you are interested?

4. Did you display the data and expalin what it was?

5. Did you present a good graph with two or more regressions and the data?

6. Did you make a statement/prediction from an evaluation?

7. Did you make a statement/prediction using a solve feature?

8. Did you discuss the geography of relevant regression(s) including Max/Mins, Ends, Increasing/Decreasing?

9. Did you discuss the % Growth and Field Questions?

10. Is your presentation Interesting, Relevant, and Informative and under 5 minutes long?

Getting Help:
There are a lot of resources for this course. 
Did you try the tutoring center at Mercer?
Did you try the software included with the book?
How about talking to the instructor?
Did you try the sample tests?

Day 1:

Go online and find 5 data points that are interesting to you and relevant to your group/major

Make a graph of the data.

Draw a line thru the data

Estimate the equation of the line thru the data.

Evaluate the regression at a point

Choose a y - value and solve for the appropriate x-value

day 2

Find the Zero to your cubic regression

*y1= cubic regression

*Adjust the window until you see the x-intercept

*2nd Trace = Calc 2: zero

*enter appropriate left bound (lower value)

*enter appropriate right bound (upper value)

*press enter

Find the Max/Min for your Quartic Regression

*y1= quartic regression

*Adjust the window until you see the max or min

*2nd Trace = Calc 4 or 5: max or min

*enter appropriate left bound (lower value)

*enter appropriate right bound (upper value)

*press enter

In words say what the zero means.

1. Go online and find 5 data points that are interesting to you and relevant to your group/major
