REMEMBER the Trig Functions Unit PROJECT. The details of the project are linked and the scoring rubric is posted as well. The KEY DATES are (i) your topic and data set must be selected & approved prior to April 2. FINAL submission of Assignment is Sunday, April 26 One major point in this assignment is learning HOW to WRITE and PRESENT math, as all of you will be expected to know HOW TO WRITE AND PRESENT math "essays" in IB maths next year. Here are various exemplars of WELL PRESENTED written Math projects from past students: Exemplar #1 (a quadratics project); Exemplar #2 (a stats project); Exemplar #3 (a linear systems project) Here are some examples of how NOT TO PRESENT a Math project: Exemplar #4 (a stats project); and Exemplar #5 (an exponential functions project). |

Welcome back to Semester 2. I hope you had a good holiday break. Your first 2 assignments for SEM 2 are the following two surveys: (1) an opportunity to reflect upon SEMESTER 1 of the course and (2) an opportunity to set some goals for SEMESTER 2 of this course. Both surveys are due by the end of the week. |
Dec 18 |
For those of you who wish to get a head start in our next unit, we will be studying Polynomial Functions next. Our three "BIG PICTURE" ideas will be (i) Applications/Modeling with Polynomial Functions, (ii) Graphical Explorations of Polynomial Functions and (iii) Algebra of Polynomial Functions. If you wish to get started, here is a link to Math Is Fun's page (scroll down to Polynomial Functions) and here are some links to Khan Academy's video series dealing with some Polynomial Function concepts:VIDEO #1 on Terminology ; and then VIDEO #2 on Polynomial Division ; and then VIDEO #3 on Polynomial Factoring ; and then VIDEO #4 on Behaviour of Polynomial Functions. |

TO START PREPARING for our Dec TEST/EXAM, here are several suggestions to guide your preparation: Here is a list of learning objectives for our Units on Quadratics & Functions (1) To review/consolidate your understanding of our work with Quadratic Functions, here is the Nelson 10 Chap 6 REV section. On pages 361,362, you could work through Q1ace, 2, 3ace, 4ace, 5, 6, 8ace, 9, 10, 11ace, 14, 15, 18 .You could also complete the Chapter Self Test, Q1-9. ANSWERS are linked here. (2) To review/consolidate your understanding of our work with Functions, you should review (i) Transformations, (ii) Composition & (iii) Inverses by working through some of these linked worksheets or by revisiting some of the assigned homework from previous lesson Homework Assignments |

Here is WHY you need to master vertexes & roots of Quadratic Functions |
Nov 1 | Our current unit in IM3 will end in the middle of November, so our next UNIT TEST will be on Monday, Nov 10 (G block) and Tuesday, Nov 11 (B block) To help with your TEST PREP, I am linking the Nelson 10, Chapter 5 Review Exercises. Check the KEY REVIEW points on p303 and then the Review Questions on pages 304-305, Q1,3,5,6,7,9,11,13,14b,15ac,16,17. There is a Practice Test on page 306. Answers linked here, but make sure you show complete solutions in your TEST PREP To remind you of skills you have learned LAST YEAR in IM2, here is the Unit Test from IM2 You are also responsible for knowing how to transform the parent function, y = 1/x (link to practice WS here). Here are some additional resources for studying the transformation of y = 1/x: here is a video from LisaPeters5's channel and here is a second worksheet (try Q2adeg on page 2 |
Oct 22 | The next assessments in IM3 are coming up. We are having a QUIZ on Monday, Oct 27 (G block) and Tuesday, Oct 28 (B block) which will deal with (i) Transforming Quadratics & Other Functions (Lessons 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 & 2.4) Review materials for QUIZ: (1) Working with Quadratic Functions from Page 1 of Nelson 10 Chapter 5 Mid Chapter Review as well as Page 2, (2) Transforming Quadratic Functions worksheet, (3) For Reviewing Transforming Functions (as in Lesson 2.3), (3) more work on Transforming Functions (from Lesson 2.3) Our current unit in IM3 will end in the middle of November, so our next UNIT TEST will be on Monday, Nov 10 (G block) and Tuesday, Nov 11 (B block) |
Oct 12 | Here is a link to the revised TEST REFLECTION & CORRECTIONS policy for this year. Here is the cover sheet that goes along with the Test R&C. Here is the Reflection component of the Test R&C and here is the Corrections Recording Sheet. Here is a combined document, with all three required forms.

Sep 28 | Start planning for your Quarter 1 Project. I have linked the details of the Project here. Read it over, look at the scoring rubric & look at the exemplar. You are required to have an Olympic Event selected in order to begin the data collection & thereby start the Project in our class period on Wednesday. Once you have your event selected, email me ASAP, as I will only allow one person per event and I will operate on a "first come, first served" basis |
Sep 28 | Likewise, here is a posting of the SOLUTIONS to the Linear Functions Quiz on pages 10-13 of the Review Package |
Sep 25 | |
Sep 21 | Here is link to a REVIEW PACKAGE for skills & concepts related to the three themes of our first Unit: (1) Basics of Functions, (2) Linear Functions & (3) Linear Systems Recommended Questions are highlighted in the attachment. The TEST on pages 10-13 was from ISM from Aug 2013. Just a reminder that you are obligated to turn in a TEST PREP on the day of the test!! |
