SL1 - 9/25/17

I'll return your quadratics quizzes on Tuesday, but meanwhile we'll move onto the details of functions looking at notation, composition and more on sign diagrams. This unit is fast - we get into the trickier ideas (rational and inverse functions) next Mon & Tue, then the quiz is on Thursday. I may try to move a little faster this week to give more time on those ideas so stay on top of it. Note the video support links below - use them if you have questions! See you in class,
Mr. Alei

SL2 - 9/25/17

Vector Foundations Quiz (Ch 12) on Monday, then we move on into applications. The pace is picking up some, be sure to stay up with the homework and be attentive (asking lots of questions) in class. Because of the quiz Monday, we don't have much time for the lesson so I've made a video for you (see below). The ideas aren't super hard, but they take some getting used to. See you in class,

Jr. Seminar 9/25/17

I really appreciated your "Microwaved" performances and the discussion afterward. Much to learn. I'll get you the recipes and hopefully we'll see the final film soon. I also hope you enjoyed Ms. Dryfoos' presentation on Friday. Next up, I'm thinking we want to look into some basic home skills, starting with your car. Ever had to jump start? change a tire? check your fluids? All that and more this week. See you in class,
Mr. Alei
