MYP 5 - 1/26/15

We'll look more at our friend Pythagorus this week, in circles and in 3 dimensions before moving on to a much more recent adaptation of his work in the Cartesian coordinate plane. Our schedule got a bit messed up with the snow day last week, so look carefully at the HW on this page (rather than your handout). See you in class,

SL 2 - 1/26/15

On Monday we finally learn how to find integrals with the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Wednesday we look closer at the fundamental theorem and at indefinite integration. Fri will be practice. Note that as we cover more ground, there are more QB problems that should be accessible. Make them a priority! Next week we introduce a couple techniques for more complex integration and will have a quiz on Friday 2/6.! See you in class,

MYP 5 - 1/19/15

We'll move on to geometry this week - a long unit with lots of ideas, some of which you may have seen before. In any case, the focus will remain on applying understanding of concepts, rather than the skills of performing certain calculations. Be patient and persistent, particularly with your HW where you will need to think deeply about what you are doing, why, and how it connects to other ideas in order to build your understanding. See you in class,
