OK folks, time to shift gears. We'll discuss the Exeter problems on Monday, and then do a brief lesson on determinants. Monday's HW, due Thu, will be from the HL textbook. We'll work from that book in a more traditional way for the next couple weeks, exploring some more advanced features of quadratics and moving into polynomials. Since I don't have enough textbooks for everyone to have a copy, please try to use the electronic copy of the text (link below). See you in class,

Beware! I updated this early this week - see last week for HW due Monday!
Sorry for all the changes to HW last week. The good news is that there's a new Version 2 problem list below (that I'll also hand out in class!) Toss the old one. We're moving more into quadratics now. Since it's still pretty familiar stuff, I've decided to up the number of HW problems each night to 9 instead of 8. That way we can get into new ideas sooner. We're on track to finish our work in Book 1 around mid-Nov. Lastly, there will be a little quiz on Tuesday - it will take about half the period. See you in class,

A couple more vector ideas - intersecting lines and relationships among lines and we're done with vectors. Unit test will be Wed, 10/15 with quite a lot of time to review beforehand. Come in if you have individual questions.
Head's UP (again)!
Next week, starting on 10/13, we will begin working in earnest on our explorations. You need to begin thinking now about a topic for your exploration. It should be something you are interested in that involves some mathematics that are at the level of the course. You will have 3 weeks to complete your explorations - they are due to me on Monday, Nov 3. More information will be forthcoming - for now decide on a topic, preferably by next Monday, 10/13.
