"spiders & flies"


Today we learned about "applications of trig".  Also we learned how to find certain lenths on a 3-D object.
Remember there is only 6 things to find on a triangle, 3 angles and 3 sides.
  1. Sometimes a series of right triangles can be drawn of modeled to indicate "hypotenuse of one, becomes the leg of another triangle."                 or
  2. Often trig. problems are multi-step.... (i.e. you must calculate many intermediate 'answer' to get a final one.)
We have our first text book test block 4, wednesday Febuary 23rd.
- trig. unit

Angles and trigonometry

We still need to decide on a day for our tests. There is a poll on the blog to vote.
We began with some vocabulary. Make sure that you know SOH CAH TOA. You will need these. We learned that planes are quite fun.



More triangle solving

Yesterday, Tuesday, we learned how to find the adjacent side of a triangle when only given the opposite and the angle.

Just A Regular Post....

Here's one....

Hit this link to TeacherTube for an explanation of trig. functions...

How to post on the blog!

Well today we talked about how to scribe and who scribes. We also learned how to upload a video onto the blog and link a website. We got some accelerated math on Trig. Mr Maksymchuk will blog about what he taught today.

  • Any notes that you give/show to Mr. Maksymchuk to sign you need to keep them till it is shown in Edline. This will help any problems with absent days with no explanation.
