Moving on this week, remember that you need to turn in a complete draft of your exploration before Thanksgiving break. It will be the version that counts toward your Desert grade. The version to be submitted to IB is due before Winter Break. Please make time to meet with me if you need help. In the meantime, we'll move on to calculus this week - our final topic. The early lessons are highly intuitive, then as we move into things, your algebra and much of your math background will be put to the test. See you in class.
