MYP 5 - 3/30/15

We're off to a great start folks. Now that we can find trig functions of obtuse angles, we can begin to do some really cool things with trig. Starting with the area of a triangle, then we'll see how to solve non-right triangles! See you in class.

MYP 5 - 3/23/15

Welcome back! I hope you all had a restful and enjoyable break and are ready to go for the final push. One more quarter. It will fly by with many special events and the weather improving. We'll also be moving quickly through content - there are still many important ideas that we will encounter. So let's get started with Trigonometry, an incredibly powerful tool in many fields of study. See you in class.
