Nov 15 | Here is a link to the "Review Assignment for Assessment 11." All questions are merely "suggestions" and you should do as many as you feel you need to. You should also do a few every night, rather than many the "night before", because then you can ASK for assistance from me (or any peer for that matter before the test.) You WILL BE required to show me your Test Prep, so make sure all Test Prep is in your notebook. One other nasty "rule" of mine .... I don't answer questions on Test Day!! |

Aug 15 | Assessment #9 - Wed, Sept 19 and Thurs, Sept 20 Assessment #10 - Wed, Oct 24 and Thurs, Oct 25 Assessment #11 - Sun, Nov 18 and Mon, Nov 19 Internal Assessment - Exploration - FINAL COPY due Sunday, Dec 2 Assessment #12 (SEM EXAM) - TBA - week of Dec 16 - Dec 20 |
April 11 | 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). |
Mar 1 | An interactive graph from DESMOS illustrating what a difference quotient geometrically represents |
Feb 21 | 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 |

Nov 27 | Review Suggestions: (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!! |
