All provincial exams ARE CONFIRMED to happen so you WILL be at school for your provincial exams GUARANTEED. So Math 10 students, you will go to school tomorrow to write your Math 10 provincial @ 9am. Don’t be late, because you’re not allowed in after 30 minutes.

To all my PreCalculus 12 students, I hate to disappoint you but your final tomorrow has been cancelled. 🙁 BOO!! Your final marks are up on VLN.

PreCalc 11 Flipped Classroom HW

Hi Everyone,

I hope you’re as excited as I am to try out something new with Math education! Your homework assignments for this chapter (Ch 8 Sequence & Series) will require that you watch a video of either Mr. Griffiths or myself teaching the lesson. The examples we go through will be available in a pdf file for you to follow along. Some students may prefer to write it all out on their own which is totally up to you.

This is what you’ll need to do:
1) Print out the notes (or not)
2) Watch the video and fill in the blanks & follow along (or create your own notes based on this)

If you’re not understanding something, then rewind that part and watch again. The goal of your homework assignments is to understand the theory taught in the lesson. Everyone learns at their own pace. Some students may understand the lesson after watching only once, some may need to rewind for some parts, some may need to watch the video a few times to fully understand what’s going on. It would be a good idea to pause the video before we show the solution to a question so that you can attempt to do it on your own.

In the classroom, we will work on workbook questions (and you’ll have your trusty notes to refer to). At the end of each class, to keep y’all accountable, I will be having a quiz to make sure people are doing their homework!

Ok I think that’s it for now. If you have any questions, feel free to comment on this post! 🙂

Panarchy Fling BONUS

Hi Everyone,

Thanks to everyone who rated Panarchy Fling.

If your name is not on the list, then either
1) you didn’t rate it
2) you didn’t leave your name in the format First name + Last name initial. Ie… Peter G
3) you included TOO MUCH information. Ie… Jonathan Smack, Windermere Secondary, Math 10, Ms. Yang, 1-4. You can correct this easily by just revising your review by deleting all the extra information. Just need your first name and last name initial. Don’t make any reference to Ms. Yang! LOL :p
4) you wrote something inappropriate :s

So, it’s not too late to earn bonus. My sister said she’d extend the free app until Friday May 11. I will update the list as students update me. All you need to do is fire me an email @ and let me know. I’ll double check the review and then add your name to the list.

Here is the list of students who will receive +2.

1-1 1-2 1-4 2-1 2-2 2-3 2-4

Happy Easter Everyone!

I hope you all are enjoying the long weekend especially with all the sunny weather we’ve been getting. It was REALLY difficult for me to sit down and mark these Math 11 exams with clear blue skies and sunny weather outside. I felt like they were taunting me. Alas, a promise is a promise. I said I’d get these done by Sunday and so here I am, letting you know that updated marks can be found on the “Marks” page 🙂

Bye for now! @_@
