To my students ...


By the time you read this you will already have heard from Mrs. Ingram that I will be away from school for an extended period of time. 10 weeks to be exact. I'll be back on November 17.

On August 18 we had our fourth child, a little girl. Her name is Sadie. My wife and I discussed this a lot. As this is our last child, late last week we decided together that I would take a parental leave of absence.

I must admit I had very mixed feelings about taking the leave of absence. We began learning together and were off to a wonderful start with much hope and promise for the semester ahead. That hasn't changed. You are all capable of being the person, learner, mathematician you imagine yourself to be.

I have always believed that anyone can learn math, even the most advanced math, as long as they see themselves as able to be successful. So much of your success, in school and in life, has to do with believing in yourself; having confidence in yourself. See yourself as a success and you will be successful; in this and in all things.

In my absence you will be learning from one of the finest teachers in our school, yet don't underestimate yourselves. You can also be the finest teachers of each other. Just making the effort to take on that role for each other will deepen your learning and make you better students. You are your own best teachers. Continue to work together. Teach and support each other. And watch yourselves grow into the finest mathematicians in the school.

Mrs. Ingram is a wonderful teacher, I've worked with her for years, I know. Trust and lean on her, and each other, and you'll go far together.

I'm going to spend the next little while just being a dad to my kids. In the meantime I'll be poking in on the blog to see how you're all doing.

Take care of each other. And learn hard.

Your Teacher,
Mr. K

09.04.2008 Applied Math

Today we learned/reviewed about trigonometry.

A 90 degree angle is called a right angle.
Any angle greater than the right angle(90 degrees) is called the obtuse angle.
Any angle smaller than the right angle is called the acute angle.

We reviewed how to find angles and sides using SOH CAH TOA.
SIN = opposite over hypotenuse
COS = adjacent over hypotenuse
TAN = opposite over adjacent

The hypotenuse(the longest side) is the opposite of the right angle.

All angles of a triangle equal to 180 degrees.

To find which angle belongs to which sides(usually the lower case letter), it's the opposite of the angle (usually uppercase letter).


Other material covered in class today was posted by Mr.K in the post below.

The next scribe belongs to : PAIGE!

A New Beginning

Hi There! You found our blog! This is the place to talk about what's happening in class; to ask a question you didn't get a chance to ask in class; to get copies of a handout you didn't get in class (here's the course outline); for parents to find out "How Was School Today;" to share your knowledge with other students. Most importantly it's a place to reflect on what we're learning.

Remember what I said about the Forgetting Curve? Well a big part of Learning and Remembering involves working with and discussing new ideas with other people -- THIS is the place to do just that. Use the comment feature below each post, or make your own post, contribute to the conversation and lets get down to some serious blogging!

Here are the slides from today (your homework is on slide #33):

See you tomorrow.

Mr. K.
