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.

Circle Theorems

You can measure the angle of an arc from the central angle.

Circle Geometry

First we started off with opening EUKLID DynaGeo. It is a good tool to use for circle geometry. Mr. Max started the lesson on Circle Geometry by asking us the most basic question... What is a Circle? a circle is a set of points in a 2D plane, such that all points are EQUIDISTANT from a centre point. We have to use the "Internet" to find the definitions to these circle words.

-Minor/Major Arc
-Intercepted Arc
-Intercepted Angle
-Central Angle
-Inscribed Angle
-Cyclic Quadrilateral

...and we have to find what they are on a Diagram that Mr. Max created.

Work Period

Today is our last chance to finish our Simple/Compound Interest Questions. We can also work on accelerated math. 41 objectives due by today.

Yesterdays Blog.

Dear Everyone who reads the blog,

Sadly, yesterday I forgot to put up my post, which would be why I am here again today! Yesterday we had a sub (not the sandwich) because Mr. Max had some business to take care of, or else he was sick, Either way he wasn't here. So, we had Mr. Richer for a substitute. He was very lovely, barely knew he was there, apparently he has a staring problem but thats okay! During this period we had lots of work to catch up on and stuff to do. Hopefully everyone did all their work, I'm sure we all did because we're such wonderful children.. And thats about all I have to say about TGIF. Have a lovely day today, and I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday too! :)

Wonder how to..

Today is Wednesday, May 20th. Today is a day 2. Today is a work period. Today, there are 9 people in class, 10 if you count Mr.Maksymchuk. Since we will not learn anything new today, I will introduce you to my new favorite website..... **do do do doo doo doo doooooooooo** (tadaaa music)

Have you ever wondered how to... crack a master lock? lock pick hand cuffs? Fake a memory clear on your TI? Unclock a door with a credit card?!? I BET YOU HAVE!!! **applause**

Even if you haven't... This website is still cool!!!

Wonderhowto is the best way to find out how to do most things your mother wouldn't teach you!

Check it out. Be responsible. Use it for entertainment purposes only. Don't be dumb and steal stuff. Or cheat. Or whatever.

much love.

May 19

Hey, today was just another work period in class. Mr. Maksymchuk today was not impressed with some of our accelerated math goals. He is deciding whether or not to give us another week to work on our goals. The interest compound quesion are do as well.

Work class on Intrest and Accelerated math

Today in grade 11 applied was another work period to either work on Accelerated math or to work on your Interest assignment. The deadline for Accelerated is tommorow at 3:40 pm where you need 41 completed objectives

Rachels Challenge

Today we had the choice to either work on our budgets and ivestments assignment or math objectives. Just a reminder, 41 objectives are due on friday! If you happen to miss the presentation yesterday, you can go on the website to see what you missed. In my opinion I thought the presentation was emotional to everyone, it was a great experience. One of the best speakers to the school yet. Here is a link to the website.

Work Period

Today we are supposed to be finished our budget things, so if you havent finished those, you might want to get on that. Were getting back into the swing of accelerated math.... there are 41 objectives due the Friday before may long weekend. If you dont understand the work look in the coursework drive for examples because they are all on there. Yup... have a nice day.

Budget Forms

Today we had a work period. We worked on our budget forms and Accelerated math. Mr. Max is giving marks for budged forms if you are done. The next accelerated math dedline is the friday before May long weekend. We have not been assigned how many objectives it will be yet.
