## Week 9 – PreCalculus 11

This week in Pre Calc 11 we were reviewing for our Graphing unit test and our midterm exam. Some lessons that were taught in this week include  Equivalent forms of the quadratic function and  Modeling with quadratic functions. We also did our annual skills check my performance on the skills check was pretty good only missing 2…

## Week 8 Pre-Calculus 11

This week in Pre-calculus 11 we were reviewing what we did before the spring break and we were introduced to graphing quadratic formulas. The main point of this week was transforming the graph of . The Are 3 possible equations you can use:     The first formula adds q to the parent function which…

## Week 7 – Pre Calculus 11

This week in pre-calculus 11 we were introduced to the discriminant located in the square root of the quadratic formula. Using the discriminant you are given lots of information about the formula. You can evaluate if the equation is factorable or not, how many possible solutions there are and if the answer is rational, irrational,…

## Week 6 – Pre Calculus 11

This week in Pre Calculus 11 we where introduced to three ways of solving a quadratic equation the three types of ways are: Factoring the equation Completing the square Quadratic Formula The areas that I found an still find the most difficult is solving a quadratic equation using the completion of squares method.  I find…

## Week 5 – Pre Calculus 11

This week we concluded our Radicals unit and began factoring polynomial expressions throughout the week we reviewed what we learned in grade 10 about radicals. The hardest part about this week was attempting to remember how to factor because haven’t done this in a full year. For Example: x2 + 7x + 12 If you go…

## Week 4 – Pre Calculus 11

This week in Pre Calculus 11 we were introduced to adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing mixed and entire radicals. To fully understand this unit you must be able to convert your entire radicals to mixed radicals and in reverse. The biggest thing people forget when doing these exercises is to simplify their radicals. This part of…

## Week 3 – Pre Calculus 11

This week in Pre Calculus 11 we finished off our sequences and series unit and began a new unit of Absolute value and Radicals. To begin the unit we where introduced to absolute values of a number (Ex: |-5| has an absolute value of 5). Later throughout the week, we expanded our knowledge to solve absolute value…

## Week 2 – Pre Calculus 11

This week in Pre Calculus 11 we were introduced to the second half of our sequence and series unit. In this week we were taught Geometric Sequences, Infinite and Finite Geometric Sequences and How to use Desmose. Geometric sequences (2+4+8+16+32…) and Arithmetic sequences (2,4,6,8,10…). The biggest concept that was the hardest to grasp for me included solving…

## Week 1 – Pre Calc 11

This week in Pre Calculus 11 we were reunited with the basics of math. Our first unit began with the introduction to sequences and series. The unit required the ability to identify patterns in a list of numbers and find a specific term in that sequence and the sum of the Series of numbers. Some things…
