AdvMath - 2/23/15

Three topics this week: Isaac will start us off with vector functions. Then Jeremy will discuss Vector calculus, and we'll finish off with Marine discussing tangent, normal, and binormal vectors. Notice that I am simplifying the assignment list below. I'm showing the topics that we will discuss on the day listed. You are to do the reading before the class period! We will do the problems from that section. See you in class,

AdvMath - 2/16/15

OK let's move on into multi-variable functions. We'll start with quadric surfaces and then look at some general features of functions in several variables. Starting Wed this week, we will shift into a new pedagogical model. Instead of having a "lecture" and doing homework problems, we will all read sections from the book as HW and work problems during class. We will rotate responsibility for leading the discussion in class, starting on Wednesday with me and cycling alphabetically by last name (Alei,Bacon,Fischer,Hartse,Lin). So Taylor, you have Friday. We'll talk more about what that means on Wed. See you in class,

Great job(s) on your vector tests everyone. That'll be fun to come back to next year and extend the ideas further. Meanwhile, it's time to move on to trigonometry - where we'll quickly see connections to, what else, vectors! We'll start off from a handout that describes background trig knowledge for HL math. That handout is available here and also at the link below. See you in class,

The snow on Friday means we're back in sync with A & H blocks. Hope you all had a good break. We will move on this week with "coordinate" geometry, an advancement made in the 15th century thanks to Rene Descartes (and others). You will be familiar with many of the ideas, but again we will be looking at new ways of applying your understanding. Focus on the application, not rote procedures. but See you in class,
