Nov 27

Our FOURTH ASSESSMENT will happen on Tuesday, Dec 5 & Wednesday, Dec 6. The topics that will be assessed include sequences and series (A1.1), working with exponents & logarithms in equations and as functions (A1.2 and F2.7), binomial theorem (A1.3), arcs and sectors (T3.2), modeling with trig functions (T3.4), algebraic & geometric vectors (V4.1), probability (SP5.5, SP5.6). The skills and concepts from Problem Sets 16 - 23 should be completed and understood.


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!!


Oct 29

Our THIRD ASSESSMENT will happen on (i) Tuesday, NOV 7 for ISST traveling athletes. All others will write in their class periods on Mon/Tues on Nov 13/14. The topics that will be assessed include trig equations (T3.5), working with logarithms (A1.2), geometric vectors (V4.1), sequences and series (A1.1), stats and probability (SP5.3, SP5.6) and function transformations (F2.3). The skills and concepts from Problem Sets 12 - 17 should be completed and understood


Oct 13

Our SECOND ASSESSMENT will happen on Wednesday. The topics that we have focused upon in the past month include (i) trigonometry (T3.4, T3.5), (ii) rational and exponential fcns (F2.5, F2.6), (iii) stats (SP5.1, SP5.2, SP5.3) and (iv) an intro to vectors (V4.1) and will be the focal point of this assessment


Aug 27

Our FIRST QUIZ will happen on Tuesday & Wednesday. It will be a brief 2 question short answer quiz, focusing on PS 1 and PS 2 and PS 4. Make sure you are confident in understanding and being able to "perform" all skills reviewed in these problem sets
