Quarter II, Week 10: ScreenCasts, SmartNotes and Code, oh my!

OOPs, I think I spoke too soon. Last week was not the last week of the quarter, this week is! Good luck on midterms next week.

AP Calculus BC finished unit 7 on derivative of a^x and logb(x) and variable separable differential equations.

BC Calc Trig Summary 

BC Calc 705 a^x and logb(x)

BC Calc 706 DiffEqus

preCalculus for Seniors started CH8 reviewing SOHCAHTOA and Law of Sines (AAS, ASA, ASS). Yes, I said it!

preCalc Vector Product Summary

preCalc 802 Law of Sines

AP Computer Science continued CH7/EX6 on loops. 
Calculus Research Lab finished CH5 on derivatives. After midterms, we start our anti-derivatives eText!

CRL 5.2 Odd Exercises

CRL 5.4 Tangents and Normals

Computer Math continued CH7 on chip logic. We also played with Turtle Python. Computer Math is over and there's no Advanced Computer Math next semester. You will be sorely missed! Next year, Computer Math and Advanced Computer Math will be replaced by a full year Computer Science Honors. In this new course, we will do everything we do now re Discrete Math, Python and SAGE. We will also play with TI-BASIC, Turtle Python and Visual Python! See you in Computer Science next year! Note: first video is mine, the last two are not!

HTH and I hope you enjoyed this week's notes!

Learning with Technology, 


  1. I do trust all of the ideas you have offered to your post. They are very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very quick for novices. May you please lengthen them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.

  2. I'm sorry, but the pace is that of my classroom. These posts are primarily for my students and any others taking the same courses at the same pace. I also encourage teachers to use my materials.
    Thanx for the kind words,
