Here is the caricature i made of myself on the desmos site using functions, if you squint your eyes ever so slightly you can just see the resemblance
This was pretty difficult at first, desmos is a great site but making a human person using it was very challenging, sometimes it felt like no matter what I tried that nothing would work, I ended up coming up with some crazy equations that I couldn’t explain if I tried. One of my aha moments was when Ms. MacArthur told me how to do the domain and range on desmos(I literally just put the wrong bracket in) afterwards though, it was much easier to figure out new equations. I feel like this assignment drilled into my head which graphs are related to which functions, as a result I feel like i understand functions better.
In math 10 today, we were tasked with finding the height of the flag pole outside of school by using trigonometry. We went outside with clinometers, meter sticks and roller meter sticks in order to find the height. We measured to our eye height and added that to the total height of the flag pole. I liked this lab because we did something new and interesting that still involved furthering our understanding of trigonometry
If you look closely, you can see an X we marked to help us
That’s the top of the flag pole
