SL1 - 11/9/15

We finish up our work with exponents and logs this week with a couple more ideas and a quiz on Friday. I'll be out on Monday afternoon so F block will have a video lesson. Also, there are lots of other videos available from the link below if you want a refresher or another view of how things work. See you in class!

More work with logarithms this week. The laws, solving equations, and looking at different bases. Also note the link below with "flipping" videos. There you'll find videos on essentially every topic we cover - an excellent way to get another perspective, further insight, or make up a class you miss. I hope it helps. See you in class!
