SL1 - 1/1/18

Welcome to 2018 and another exciting semester of math! We'll tackle binomial expansions first (and quickly!, then move on into statistics, probability, and trig. You'll also get the chance to do a personal exploration this semester, just after spring break. Lots in store - I look forward to a fun time. See you in class,
Mr. Alei

SL2 - 1/1/18

Welcome back folks. I hope everyone had a relaxing and refreshing winter break. We move into the home stretch now - Q3 is often the biggest challenge. As college acceptances arrive and the weather improves, motivation can wane. Meanwhile, the content gets more complex as we continue to synthesize all that we have learned - at a good clip, and with your IB exams on the horizon. There is light at the end of the tunnel - don't let it be a train!

We finish up derivatives with applications of various sorts, then move right into integration. Good stuff! See you in class,
Mr. Alei
