Science/Math

Math 10 has just wrapped up our measurement unit. We will now be starting trigonometry. 

Math 11 has just wrapped up our logical reasoning unit and we are already into our trigonometry unit. 
Math at Work 12 has had a very productive Month putting 2 units behind us and already into our linear relationships unit.

Hi Eveyone,
 
We've been back to school for about a week and things are going great.  Math 10 is working on measurement between imperial and SI units.  Math 11 is working on using inductive and deductive reasoning and Math at Work 12 is working with probability.

Hi Everyone! I hope you had a great summer and I can't wait to see you around the school. Everyone please remember…

Hi Everyone!
 
We are in a challenging time for education. I know it is tough doing your math work on your own. You no longer have your teacher standing next to you to guide you. All you can do it try your best. There are many ways to solve a problem. What you should do is think about how to solve the problem, keep track of what you do (show your work) to solve the problem, and think about if the answer makes sense. You can always ask for help or look something up on the internet to help. And never think your work isn't good enough to pass it. We want to see anything and everything you have done.
 
Good luck and hang in there!

Math at Work 11

●  Students will be expected to solve problems that involve SI and imperial units in volume

●  Students will be expected to solve problems that require formulas related to volume

●  Students will be expected to solve problems that involve creating and interpreting graphs, including bar graphs, histograms, line graphs, and circle graphs.

●  Students will be expected to solve problems that involve personal budgets.

●  Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of compound interest

●  Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of credit options, including credit cards and loans.

Math at Work 10

●  Students will be expected to solve problems that involve SI and imperial area measurements of regular, composite, and irregular 2-D shapes and 3-D objects, including decimal and fractional measurements, and verify the solutions.

●  Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of the Pythagorean theorem by identifying situations that involve right triangles, verifying the formula, applying the formula, and solving problems.

●  Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of primary trigonometric ratios (sine, cosine, tangent) by applying similarity to right triangles, generalizing patterns from similar right triangles, applying the primary trigonometric ratios, and solving problems.

●  Students will be expected to solve problems that require formulas related to perimeter, area, the Pythagorean theorem and the primary trigonometric ratios.

Mathematic 10 - Foundations and Pre-Cal

●  Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of slope with respect to rise and run, line segments and lines, rate of change, parallel lines, and perpendicular lines.
●  Students will be expected to determine the characteristics of the graphs of linear relations, including the intercepts, slope, domain, and range.
●  Students will be expected to relate linear relations to their graphs, expressed in
●  slope-intercept form (y​ ​= ​mx ​+ ​b)​
●  Students will be expected to determine the equation of a linear relation to solve problems, given a graph, a point and the slope, two points, and a point and the equation of a parallel or perpendicular line
●  Students will be expected to solve problems that involve unit pricing and currency exchange, using proportional reasoning.
●  Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of income to calculate gross pay and net pay, including wages, salary, contracts, commissions, and piecework.

Feb News:

In High School land almost everyone will be starting a new courses and have a new beginning. But for Math 10 Foundations and Pre-Cal...we are halfway! 4 more chapters to go! We will be starting with relations and functions (which has a lot to do with graphs).

Math at Work 10 will be offered as an alternative which will focus on math used in the work place. We will start with consumerism (unit pricing, foreign money exchange, etc.). 

We will also be offering Math at Work 11. It will start off with Surface Area of 3D objects. 

 Attendance is essential for all Math courses.

Math 10 – This month we have been working polynomials. 

Math at Work 10 – We have worked with measuring area of composite and 3D shapes. We are currently working with angles. 

Science 10 – We have wrapped up our chemistry unit and have moved on to our physics intro. We are learning about Kinematics.
