Oh Monday…

We survived the first Monday of the school year! Yay!!! It was an interesting one with the class meetings and all, but alas, we stayed on track.

In Geometry, we had a fairly easy day looking at points, lines, planes, rays, and segments. It required no usage of the calculator whatsoever nor any “math”. Unfortunately, there was a lot of definition-type work though. There’s really not much I can say on here other than see the notes for me details.

In Algebra II, we explored transformations. This is where we met three friends who will stay with us for the rest of the semester. Their names are “a”, “h”, and “k”. With these three friends, we can just about graph any type of function thrown our way. The sooner you understand them, the less painful the semester will be. First, “a” tells you whether we will stretch, shrink, or flip the graph. Then, “h” tell you if we will move left or right as compared to the parent function. Finally, “k” tells you whether we will move up or down as compared to the parent. See the notes for more explanation.
