Another productive class don't you think? Again, we got into groups and tried to create a graph representing our little story from Andover to Concord. I think that it was a bit too quiet... or maybe I just have bad hearing? During this activity, we all had different ideas on how we created our graphs- which is a good thing seeing how we can all learn from each other's mistakes. After some contemplation and discussion, we were able to understand how the graph was to be displayed. But hey, some of us might be in "summer mode" still and getting adjusting to the homework and the early morning wake ups.

It probably was a big refreshment to some of us on how to create graphs in our calculators- it was for me. We were taught how to determine if a graph was a line by using the calculator to create an equation and using it to draw a line through our points. We also learned about the r² function which determines how accurately it will go through our five points.

So, it's our first day of real calculus homework! And hopefully, no one struggles too much on it. As the next couple days go, we'll all remember work from s3 & s4 pre-cal! Don't let the forgetting curve get you during this course because it's something that would be very helpful in the future. Anyway, let's not have such a quiet class and start interacting! Let's have a fun year everyone :)
