MYP5 - 1/25/16

We'll move on with equations of lines and different forms of them, the look at a few more complex ideas - how to find the equation of a perpendicular bisector of two points and how to find the distance from a point to a line. Then, on Friday, we will have a quiz and begin on the construction packet that I mentioned. You must have a compass in class on Thursday! See you in class!

We move on now to two variable statistics - a topic used frequently to try to determine whether two sets of data are related. Things are moving fast - we'll have the unit test on one and two variable statistics on Monday, 2/1. Be sure to ask whatever questions you have and stay on top of the HW. It's also time to really start thinking about your explorations. See lots of resources here. See you in class!

Over the next two weeks we'll review vector ideas, mostly self paced. Those of you who had PreDP have seen this stuff and will have time to work in class on the HW assignments. I'll work with the others to help them understand the ideas - still a lot of time to work in class. Move according to the schedule shown below. But...it's important to leave plenty of time for 14J and 14K, the trickier stuff. So I would urge you to get ahead of the schedule and leave yourself time for review, extra practice, and questions. See you in then!
