Quarter IV, Weeks 8 and 9: ScreenCasts, SmartNotes and Code, oh my!

Please note, that this will be my last blog posting for the school year regarding my classes at the High School. This was a banner year for this blog as I posted every single new lesson as a ScreenCast with SmartNotes and WorkSheets or Code for every single class for every single Quarter and every single week! I hope you get a lot out of it. BTW, our YouTube Wednesdays and TED Tuesdays for the last 5 weeks (11min each week) have been devoted to Steve Jobs (see above). Have a Great Summer!!!

AP Calculus BC completed a final project with SAGE I like to call LAC 2012: "Life After Calculus." LAC 2011 was the same last last year except we did it without SAGE and didn't get a chance to record for YouTube. So, we did a lot of Calculus with SAGE on Youtube these past few weeks! 

LACS 2012: "Life After CompSci" is nearly finished. We did some graphics programming with java on Youtube (GameOfLife, Turtles, Fractals). Last year LACS 2011 was about appInventor for Droid. Next year, LACS 2013 may revisit Droid app development again with Eclipse.

ToDo: Maybe I'll record LAPC 2011: "Life After preCalculus: SAGE plus Vectors and Matrices" and LAPM 2010: "Life After Physics Mech: SAGE plus Ballistics" as well. 

preCalculus for Seniors  
preCalculus spent all of 4th Quarter on an Intro to Calculus! We're calling this LAPC 2012: "Life After preCalculus."

Calculus Research Lab
CRL didn't quite finish the Calc3 text on DiffEqus! We finished the Derivatives text (calc-1) last semester and the AntiDerivatives text (calc-2) last quarter. We are using this Differential Equations text (calc-3) in our final project, LACRL 2012! These texts are all free for the download as PDFs from
pages 15-20 of DiffEqus text:

I hope you enjoyed this week's notes!

Learning with Technology,
