The following TOPICS will be used to "guide" most of the questions that appear on the Assessment ==> A1.1 (sequences & series), A1.2 (laws of logs), A1.3 (binomial expansion), F2.2 (functions), T3.3 (trig identity), T3.6 (triangle trig), SP5.7 (discrete random variables), SP5.8 (binomial probability) and seeing that Calculus has been introduced as a new concept, there will DEFINITELY be questions from C6.1 (equations of tangents), C6.3 (extrema and intervals of increase/decrease).

F Block class ==> Monday, Mar 5
A Block class ==> Tuesday, Mar 6
The following Problem Sets will be used to "guide" most of the questions that appear on the Assessment ==> PS26 - PS35 as well as LABS 04 and 05
Topics with which you should be familiar would include (i) CALCULUS: tangents lines & slopes of curves & difference quotients & limits & curve analysis (ii) TRIG: double angle identities/formulas & the ambiguous case of the sine law (LAB 04) & solving trig/quad equations (LAB 05) using trig substitutions, (iii) STATS: binomial probabilities and random variables, (iv) VECTORS: working with vector equations of lines as well as the dot product

Due Date: A Block class ==> Monday, Jan 29
Due Date: F Block class ==> Tues, Jan 30
Assessment #5 ==> Feb 7/8
Assessment #6 ==> Mar 5/6
Assessment #7 ==> Apr 16/17
Assessment #8 ==> May 16/17
(A) Use the Cirrito book to practice with some of the EXAMPLE problems, as they will show you a solution. Best advice is to ONLY view the question, try it yourself, then only after you’ve tried it, look at the solution.
(B) Likewise, use the Oxford book and in a similar manner, try some Examples yourself, BEFORE looking at their solutions
(C) Have a study partner and study with someone!!
(D) Come to a STUDY SESSION on Saturday afternoon from 2pm to 6pm, but come prepared to WORK!!
(1) DESMOS: an online graphing calculator to help visualize math ideas & concepts.
(2) dynamic geometry software Geogebra that we will use throughout the course for conceptual development of ideas
(3) Wolfram Alpha for help in doing all the algebra!!!
