Exam is on tuesday!

Yesterday in applied math we worked on solving a problem in the practice exam mr. max had given us the other day. Below is the question we solved. Exam is on tuesday so everyone should start studying.

Tessellation project

Mr.Maksymchuk will be leaving us all of next week but will be available monday and tuesday on the breaks. He is giving us a project that we will not get his help for, but hopefully we won't need it. On top of that we still need to do our accelerated math. 60 objectives due for June 22nd and the circle and polygon investigations booklet is due tomorrow, June 5th.

TESSELATION: The result of tiling a 2-d plain with shapes. Beware that not all shapes tesselate a plain.
Example of tessellation
18 more days till the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL and SWANAPALOOZA!

Hello fellow students:

Remember that ALL of exercise 2 on circle theorems in due on Friday June. 5th. We will be going over them on Monday. Also, keep working on learning objectives. 60 or so will be due for the end June 22nd.

Mr. Maksymchuk will be handing out a project today that is to be done in either pairs of two or individually.

Enjoy math class...

15 days left of school!

Today Mr Maksymchuk told us that we have till the end of the week to finish up our circle papers. The first 8 questions were due for yesterday if we wanted marks. If we did not get them completed our marks went down. Today is just a work period, we get to work on the circle papers or we work on Accelerated Math, which is due by the end of the next week.

Circle Theorems 6 and 7

Today we went over the last two circle theorems. We have been doing this all week and the rest of them are saved in the courswork drive.
Circle Theorem #6:
If a quadrilateral is cyclic, then the opposite angles are supplementary

*Meaning that the angles that are opposite each other always add up to 180 degrees.

Cirle Theorem #7:

If two lines are tangent to the same circle, and intersect in the exterior of the circle, then the line segments created by the point and points of tangency are congruent.

* So pretty much the lines are the same.

We then continued to do practice questions.

More Circles...

Today we learned 2 new circle theorems. Below are screenshots of the "doodles" and the euklid models along with the "then and now" question. We also had an enthusiastic debate over cell phone etticite.

Circle Theorems

We took a review on circle theorems(picture on the left), and I learnt that..if the arc's in a circle are the same, then the angle is the same. I thought this would be quite useful for you as well. We went on EUKLID and constructed circles.

The rest of the class we worked on objectives, the next dead line will be near the end of the year.
