Teaching MAT111: preCalculus Week II

Teaching MAT111: preCalculus Week II

We completed our second week today of new material. We have our 2nd test tomorrow, good luck! This was a long week as tomorrow is the 4th of July fell on last Thursday. So, we had to have our first test this past Monday and we're making up a day this Friday. As a result, we have a 5 day week. From now one we have only 4-day weeks as well as 4-day units. 

This week was about Exponential vs. Logarithmic Functions as well as solving equations graphically and algebraically (CH4+CH5). Next week we are covering Geometric Transformations and Trig Functions (CH6-CH8).

We also had our second YouTube Wednesday yesterday (see above). We talked about Tom Lehrer's "New Math" with respect to round off error on calculator and computers! We also talked about Pi Day.

Here's this week's ScreenCasts, SmartNotes and Code, oh my:
