Hi

While Will finishes with your Powerpoints, do these tasks:

1. Some Pythagoras from BBC. Read the “Revise” section, and work out “Activity” and “Test”. Copy the test in a word document and send it to me, after solving it.

2. Solve this worksheet about similarity. Send me the solutions

3. Got to this page about Thales’ theorem. Following the steps in the applet (Use the button “Reproduce”), try to create your own applet with geogebra, and send it to me.

Hi

Today we are going to use Geogebra to review similarity and Thales and Pythagoras’ theorems. Pay attention, copy the steps in your notebook and send the teacher the final applets.

Hi

1. Go to SM and do exercises 152 and 155.

2. Go again to do exercise 167.

3. We are going to visit “Proyecto Gauss” now. Answer the questions below the applet in a word document and send it to me.

4. And another applet from “Proyecto Gauss”. Do the same thing.

5. If there’s time left, we are going to learn some tricks with Geogebra

Hi

Today you are going to show Will your presentations, and he is going to give you a mark for them.

At the same time, you are going to work out these exercises:

1. From Anaya 3º, Unit 7, parts 2 to 5

2. From Anaya 3º, Unit 8, parts 6 and 7

3. Use this applet to correct exercise 44, page 174. If it doesn´t work, use Geogebra.

1. You are going to see your exams and copy what you think will be useful for you in the final exam.

2. And another task: you are going to create a GeoGebra applet about functions, following these steps:

a) Create two sliders (deslizadores), with the names “m” and “n”.

b) Write the linear function y=mx+n

c) Change color and style at wish.

d) Save and send it to me.

e) In the same email, try to explain the effect that “m” and “n” have in the function. For example, how is the function if “m” is a positive number?

You can see an example here.

3) Your teacher is going to propose you more GeoGebra work.

Hi

1. In the first part of the class we are going to learn a little vocabulary to describe graphs. Open this pdf and answer the questions. Send me your work.You have 25 minutes for this task.

2. There are several applets about functions in this blog. The teacher is going to show you them.

3. Now it’s time to use Geogebra. You should have an icon in your desktop (or two). We are going to play with the simplest functions, the straight lines (theay are called linear functions). Copy in your notebook the instructions the teacher is going to give you. At the end of the class you are supposed to send him some GeoGebra files.

Hi

First of all, we need to set an exam this friday (February 8th, 2013). An exam about equations, of course.

We are just starting with functions, a new and amazing topic.

1. Find out a nice and short definition of function. I recommend you to try here, in math is fun.

2. Send me this definition.

3. Some of the simplest functions are linear functions (straight lines). Work out parts 2, 3 and 4 of Anaya.

4. Now we are going to use GeoGebra to draw linear functions, and solve equation systems as well. Pay attention to the teacher

Hi

I hope that your presentations are going to be not so boring to kill. Remember: you are supposed to create a slideshow about some mathematicians that appear in the movie “La habitación de Fermat” (Galois, Fermat, Hilbert, Pascal, Cantor…). Will is going to help you, of course. If you finish, send the file to me. Bye

1. Start with this easy exercises from anaya

2. Solve the problems in page 15 of this book.

As usual, send me your work in a word document.

3. Read this tutorial about solving equations with wiris. You can use this program to check your exercises in the future. You have a link to Wiris at the right.

Howdy

Today Will is going to show you how to create presentations with PowerPoint. You are going to use this program to create a project about some famous mathematicians, specifically the four or five that appear in the movie “La habitación de Fermat”. Please pay a lot of attention, thanks.
