Angles

Honors Geometry – Just began working on three dimensional figures and will progress to finding the surface area and volume of a rectangular prism, pyramid, cylinder, and sphere. This class has been tasked with solving some challenging ICTM problems and will continue to do so throughout the year. The latest assignment asked students to research ahead and create a visual aid which would assist in knowledge of angle relationships, 2-D shapes, and 3-D shapes.

Functions Galore!

Math for IW Web

Honors Algebra II has gotten off to a great start this year! We have been discovering different functions and comparing them to each other. We have already used our chrome books for a variety of activities. A favorite activity has been an activity from Desmos, an online graphing calculator. Here the students were able to graph functions of time v. distance of a rocket shooting up, a Ferris wheel turning, and bumper cars weaving around each other. This was a great approach to graphing that had the kids discussing how each section of the graph should behave.  Recently, we discussed exponential growth and decay during an activity incorporating m&m’s!
