This blog is being created by and for students enrolled in Mr. Maksymchuk's Grade 10 Applied & Pre-Calculus course in the second semester of the 2010-2011 school.

Post often, and enjoy learning from and with each other.

Solving Systems using Elimination

We began the class with reviewing how to solve using substitution. We then learned how to solve using elimination.
Here are the notes for today:

Here is the recording:

Practice Test Continued

So, today we finished the practice test we started yesterday!

We also decided that there will be a Accerlerated Math test on Friday!

Oh and tell Mr. Maks the day before you want to write the test!

Parallel and Perpendicular

Today we learned what Parallel and Perpindicular lines are, how they are graphed, how to graph them given an equation for a line, and how to write an equation for a perpindicular line when given only the first line.

Point Slope form notes

Today, we dicussed the Point Slope form and the y-intercept, we aslo talked about using the slope formula.
*Remember the text book test on Tuesday May 31.

Graphing Linear Equations

We learned how to use grapmatica and graphing calculators to graph linear equations

The Effect Of Changing The Coefficent Of X In The Equation y=x

Today in class we learnt about what happens when you change the coefficent of x in the equation: y=x. Some important equations to learn are:
1. y=mx+b
2. y-y=m(x-x)
3. Ax+By+C= 0 ; m= -A/B; b= -c/B; Ax+By=C

I will later post the video since it wasn't working at this time.
