Week 5—[Trigonometric Ratios]

Week 5—[Trigonometric Ratios]

What I have learned:

  1. Ratios of Sides in a Right Triangle
  2. sin, cos, tan

Explain What I learned:

  1. The longest side is called the HYPOTENUSE(hyp)
  2. The side opposite the angle of X° is called the OPPOSTE(opp)
  3. The third side of the triangle is called the ADJACENT(adj)
  4. Sine ratio=opp/hyp
  5. Cos ratio=adj/hyp
  6. Tangent ratio=opp/adj

My Graduation Plan

  1. Healthy Living
    1. This year, I am running everyday to meet DPA requirements (150 mins/week of moderate to vigorous physical activity).
    2. Next year, I will keep running everyday to meet DPA requirements.

  • 16 of them must be from Grade 12 courses.
  1. At the end of this year, I will have 10 credits.


  1. Community Connections
    1. I need 30 hours of work/volunteer experience. To show I completed this, I must show proof in the form of a pay stub or reference letter.
    2. I can start accumulating these hours in Grade 11.
    3. My plan to earn volunteer hours is through 25 hours.
    4. I will also need to complete a reflection that includes 30 hours of Work or Volunteer Experience during Gr.10-12, Show which Employability Skills you developed while at this particular job, and Describe what you did and how you benefitted from this experience.

    2. My interview will be with a Riverside staff member.
  3. The 3 people at Riverside who are here to help with this process are:
    1. Thomson
    2. Grad Transitions teacher


In Grade 12, I will find all the necessary documents AND submit them GT Website.

I will complete Grad Transitions 12 whenever I have Grad Transitions If I have it in 1st semester, I must complete everything except the interview before work completed . In 2nd semester, everything except the interview must be completed before the end of April.

Week 2 – [Radicals & Entire and mixed radicals ]

What I have learned:

1.How to simplify square roots,cube roots,fourth roots,etc…

2.What is an entire radical?What is a mixed radical?

3.Hoe do we convert between the two?

Explain what I learned:

1.Simplify square roots: √250=√5*5*10=5√10    Simplify cube roots: 3√250=3√5*5*5*2=5

2.Radicals expressed in the from n√b are called entire radicals. Radicals expressed in the from a(n√b )are called mixed radical.

3. 3√14=√9*√14=√9*14=√126

Week 1 – [Prime Factors & Number Systems]

What I have learned: 1.What is a prime?

2.Prime factorization

3.What is GCF/LCM

4.How can we use prime factorization to find GCF & LCM?

Explain what I learned: 1.In a natural number greater than 1, besides 1 and itself, there will be no other number called a prime factor.

2.Each prime number is a factor of the composite Numbers, called the prime factors of the  composite.

3.GCF: Two or more integers have one of the biggest in a few.

LCM:Two or more integer multiples of the public.

4.Division table/Tree diagram.
