MYP 5 - 11/17/14

I'll try to get you your Probability tests back soon, but there are a few students who still need to take the test. Meanwhile, we'll move on to quadratics, the gateway to higher mathematics. We'll begin with some review of working with algebraic fractions. Things start out pretty straightforward and, as usual, begin to get more complex within a few lessons. Get the foundations clear early with thorough HW and lots of questions in class. See you in class,

SL 2 - 11/3/14

All right folks, it's time for some math! We begin calculus today and will be working with it until Spring Break! Lots of great ideas to investigate. It's also a tough time of year to do this culmination unit. You need to get off to a strong start, build solid fundamentals, and yes, practice. We will be revisiting lots of ideas from earlier in the course - logs, exponents, trig, graphing, functions and on and on. Think of this as the beginning of your preparation for your IB exams. As my HS math teacher said - you don't really learn algebra until you do calculus!
I have a new feature for this unit: online videos to supplement the lessons. THey should come in handy if you miss a class or don't understand something. On another note, you will have a sub on Friday during which time you will take a quiz and review what you have learned so far. There will also be a sub on Monday and I will treat you to a video lesson! More on that later. See you in class,
