Post your response to the following: After reading Can You Help Me with This Student? on pp. 156-157, how could you, as Juan’s teacher, provide him emotional and instructional support?
Consider the following before responding: Have you ever experienced a lack of success despite how much effort you put into succeeding? Do you think you would have benefited from receiving emotional support during the ordeal? Do you remember seeking comfort or help?

ANSWER

Juan's teacher can provide him emotional support by talking to him, with his parents present, and letting him know he isn't alone, while reassuring him that some students face the same obstacles he is having but can overcome them with hard work and dedication. I feel expressing to him that you will be there to help him every step of the way will help him gain confidence to overcome the obstacles he is facing and let him know he can depend on a teacher for help, now and in the future.

I believe such words of encouragement will reassure Juan that he can count on with the assistance of other people, including his family and his teachers. The teacher can provide instructional support by giving Juan's parents guidance on how to help him at home. Building a strong foundation of trust will help Juan succeed and give him confidence.

Also, something that isn’t frequently mentioned is that the teacher can also listen to suggestions Juan’s parents might have. After all, the best results can occur when there is active participation from the home and the school at the same time. It shouldn’t only be the teacher’s responsibility to help Juan; Juan’s parents can and should be asked to offer suggestions on how to be of assistance to their child.

Synopsis of Tyler Denton / Student Profile
Tyler Denton is a young boy ready to start the first grade at his local School. The first grade teacher is Mrs. Preston. Tyler is like other young boys in that he likes to play and he always seems happy. In this respect school will be no problem. However Tyler has started to show signs of having Asperger’s Autism. Since he is just starting elementary school intervention plans may be necessary. These will involve Tyler’s parents Ellie and Brent Denton.
Tyler has many wonderful characteristics. He likes to play a lot. A large part of his time is spent play acting, i.e., pretending that he is someone else. Related activities that Tyler enjoys are singing and dancing. These interests are obviously related to the fact that he has a brilliant imagination. The imagination is so brilliant that sometimes he forgets where he is. This does get him into a lot of trouble. Tyler also likes physically oriented activities. He loves to go to the playground to use the equipment.
In addition he enjoys soccer and karate. However, he typically is a loner in these activities. When Tyler reads it is usually about animals. In any of these mentioned activities Tyler loses focus very quickly. Part of that is due to the fact that he gets side tracked very easily. It may be...

...Tommy Martin is finding it hard to interact with other children and his educators at school. He is in grade 4 now and has had this problem since kindergarten. He lacks interest in the classroom and he is difficult to work with. Often times he is sent to the principal’s office because of inappropriate behavior. He does not keep friend for lengthy periods of time. He is physically aggressive and very emotional, even about seemingly innocuous things. He does not like sympathy during these emotional times. Frequently he behaves like he is depressed. During these depression episodes he tends to stay by himself. He has a difficulty understanding and subsequently remembering material taught in class. NOTES: He lacks interest in the classroom and often-times he is sent to the principal’s office for bad behavior. He does not keep friend for lengthy periods of time. He is physically aggressive and very emotional, even about seemingly innocuous things. Frequently he behaves like he is depressed. During these depression episodes he tends to stay by himself. Tommy’s academic studies are in decline.
EBD is Correct! Tommy is physically aggressive, does not follow instructions, likes to keep to himself, is always nervous, and has difficulty interacting with his peers. Effective Practices that might work for Tommy • Give him his own work and compliment him in public for work well done. • Try to communicate with him at some level and make every effort to make the communication a...

Two-Variable Inequalities (title required on first line)
Continuing last week’s topic of functions and relationships between variables, this
week’s work examines a practical application of two-variable inequalities. As the name implies,
there are independent and dependent variables, as well as graphic representations of the
solutions. Because of the inequality, the graphs and solutions demonstrate a range of possible
answers that would work in the given situation.
This problem is similar to #68 on page 539 (Dugopolski, 2012) for purposes of
demonstrating the math needed for this writing assignment. A shipping container can carry
maximum of 125 sofas and no recliners, or maximum of no sofas and 275 recliners. Study the
graph and write an equation to fit the line. Pretend the triangle region is shaded in and change the
equation to an inequality describing this region.
The diagram is showing the sofas on the x axis and the recliners on the y axis. There are
two points on the graph, (275, 0) and (0, 125), so we can compute the slope of this line.
The slope is...

TWO VARIABLE INEQUALITIES
For this assignment, I am going to work with two-variable inequalities and demonstrate the practical application of these inequalities. I am going to use a graph that shows the number of TV’s on the left side and the number of refrigerators on the bottom. Of course this would mean that my x axis is the bottom, and my y axis on the left. The line shows the combination of TV’s and refrigerators that the truck can hold.
The problem I am going to work on is #68 on page 539 . The 18 wheeler truck can hold 330 TV’s with no refrigerators, or 110 refrigerators and no TV’s. When studying this graph, imagine that the triangle region is shaded, and that it represents any given number of coordinates that is in the shaded area is a combination of TV’s and refrigerators that will fit in the truck.
Because there are two points on the graph, I can figure out the slope of the line.
So our slope is -3/1
I can now use this slop in point-slope form to write an equation. When we are finished, we will arrive at our linear inequality.
Our point-slope form equation
Replace the slope with-3/1 and (330,0) for the x and y
Add 330 to both sides using the distributive property
Multiply both sides by 1, then add 3x to both sides
Change the equal sign to a less than...

MAT 117 /MAT117 Week 9 Discussion Question
Version 8
Week 9 DQ2
1) What one concept learned in this course was the easiest for you to grasp? Why do you think it was easy for you?
2) Which was the hardest? What would have made that hard-to-learn concept easier to learn?
RESPONSE
The easiest concept for me to grasp was evaluating exponents. There were definitely other concepts that were easy to grasp, but exponents were simple math, they simply needed to be completed in order and often contained variables. I feel that exponents were easy since I use them nearly everyday at work. I use exponential expression to determine inventory levels, labor rates, and to track sales and budgets.
The hardest concept for me to grasp would have to be radicals or logarithms. I feel that I was starting to understand radicals after the third week of working with them and I am still confused with logarithms. I had to sit down with one of my best friends who is a wizard when it comes to math to write out the problems and walk me through them. Once I was able to work with my friend, and find each mistake as I made it, I was able to understand the concepts and find the shortcuts that I could use.
