SL2 - 12/9/19

A busy week this one, starting with stationary points, then looking at inflection, and wrapping up on Friday with the whole shebang. Please feel free to find some time with me if things get confusing - there is a lot going on, and it's a tough time to motivate! See you in class,
Mr. Alei

OK we'll finish up the semester by approaching the most beautiful equation in all of mathematics. Bring your Geogebra sketches on Tuesday to see the light. Note the special set of problems due Thu - not simply sequential for a change. See you in class,

SL2 - 12/2/19

Welcome back ladies. I hope you all had a relaxing and fulfilling break. We'll start by looking over our tests from before the break, easing into the return by reviewing the mechanics of differentiation. Then we head into the home stretch of the semester - just two weeks - by looking at how we can use derivatives to characterize curves. Very helpful. Continue to work on perfecting your differentiation skills. As we apply them, it's a bummer to know what you're trying to do but get tripped up on the mechanics or algebra of differentiating. See you in class,
Mr. Alei

Welcome back all. I hope you had a refreshing and cozy break. I'll return your tests on Monday, then we'll continue this next couple weeks with the ideas we've been looking at, expanding on our understanding of complex numbers, probability and counting,function properties, and limiting sequences. See you in class,

A special schedule this week due to Thanksgiving. We meet on Tuesday only, for your differentiation mechanics test (Chapter 15). I'll take some questions beforehand, but if you were confused on any of the homework, better to find a way to stop in on Monday - before school or at lunch (I have to leave right after school). Tuesday morning would be OK too. See you in class,
Mr. Alei

Believe it or not, we finish derivative mechanics this week, with derivatives of logs, trig functions and multiple derivatives. With plenty of practice, of course. Next Tuesday (the 26th; we have no class on Monday) will be our Chapter 15 test on everything we know about derivatives so far! On another note, Friday I'll be gone (Model UN) and have a video lesson for you. Ms. Masoni will be watching over you - treat her well :) See you in class,
Mr. Alei
