We first started out with three questions up on the board. I noticed that I never really thought of looking far beyond ZoomSTANDARD in my graphing calculator before. I think it was today's class and yesterday's that Mr. K really emphasized to study the graph even more, looking outside the box kind of thing. Like what Janet stated "Everything isn't always what they seem". Our brains were then refreshed about radical functions. Just because there's a zero under a radical, does not mean it excludes the point. So even though the square root of zero is still zero, zero is a number and therefore recieves square brackets =).
Today we wrapped up our review on transformations. Good job guys. With whatever basic or not so basic function that is given to us, we know how to shift it up, down, left, and right. We know how to reflect it on the x-axis and the y-axis. Now onto the next section in our cal textbooks. We somewhat got a basic review on it in class with the last question. Linear funtions. I guess we should be pulling out those old formula sheets, they can come real handy in class =) I always have mine around. As for the other part of the homework , we'll be using our "stupid" calculators. We are given more practice on using our STAT graphs, and how to find the equation of it by using the possible regressions in our calculators. Hope no one struggles much with tonight's homework.
So today, wasn't such a bad class. A little quiet. (Yes, I know even I was quiet.) We are stuck together for the whole year. Both semesters. Imagine the quietness! So maybe we should start interacting more. It's calculus and our homeroom, lets make it fun.
And as for tomorrow's scribe. Since we've had four girl scribes so far. Why don't I choose a guy this time for tomorrow, sounds good? Tomorrow's scribe is....
