### janet's scribe

Calculators are not that smart, sometimes! When graphing a calculator everything isn't always what they seem. That was one of the things I learned last class, I bet you didn't know that either. First exercise we did were the problem solving questions using our calculator, which really helped me refresh my memory. We wrote equations and sketched graphs to help us solve them. Also, we refreshed our memory on f(x) functions by doing reviews. Next we talked about most of the basic functions, Cubic, square root, reciprocal, absolute value, squaring and identity functions. In that lesson I learned to flip graphs over the y-axis instead of sliding them on the x-axis. It's always good learning different ways to solve problems as Mr. K's famous phrase goes, "There is more than one way to skin a cat, but don't really do that because it's cruel!"
So overall it was yet another productive class, for me that is, and I do apologize for not posting this sooner. I did try! I swear ... and I guess everyone knows who the scribe is for today's class, Sarah!! Have fun!
