SL2A - 3/31/14

Welcome back folks. I hope you all had a refreshing and relaxing spring break. First things first - you need to get me your explorations immediately if you want me to score your revised version. Otherwise, I will record the score of your draft. They are due to IB on April 1 so there is no time so spare. Secondly, Isaac, Jeremy and Sueking need to take the Binomial Distributions Quiz that they missed before spring break. You may review for that on Monday and need to take it Wed. Taylor, meanwhile, can get started on our next unit - normal distributions. I'd like you all done ith 24A & B by next Monday. I'm looking for a way to have more time directly with you - we'll brainstorm ideas when I see you next.

Welcome back folks. I hope you all had a refreshing and relaxing spring break. As we head into the home stretch for this year, recommit to full engagement and the fun of learning! We'll be doing a unit on Trigonometry - the first view for many of you, and then finish the course with a short unit on more formal proofs, using them mostly to review ideas we've seen.

Pre DP - 3/24/14

Welcome back folks. I hope you all had a refreshing and relaxing spring break. As we head into the home stretch for this year, recommit to full engagement and the fun of learning! We'll be doing two main things during the remaining quarter. The primary learning will be a trigonometry unit - a good topic to get familiar with before heading into DP math. We'll be working out of the MYP books from Year 4 and Year 5. See links to those books at the bottom of this page (I will issue you the year 5 book and give you copies of the relevant pages from Year 4). We'll also do a short project for a couple weeks between some of the main ideas of trig. More on that later. I've decided not to continue spending Mondays on the Stock Market Game, though you may see an assessment on some of the main ideas. See you in class.

Welcome back folks. I hope you all had a refreshing and relaxing spring break. As we head into the home stretch for this year, recommit to full engagement and the fun of learning! We'll begin a unit on Mathematical models and spend the whole fourth quarter on it - looking at different ways we can use math to represent the real world. We won't have class this Thursday so that you can present your G4 projects, but otherwise our schedule is pretty tight. Stay up with things. See you in class.

Welcome back folks. I hope you all had a refreshing and relaxing spring break. As we head into the home stretch for this year, recommit to full engagement and the fun of learning!
