hello there fellow bloggers ! As you already know i'm the next scribe sooo here i go.. in the begining of class Mr.Kuropatwa discussed a couple of the questions we did not understand from last nights homework. He went over "*inequations*" which are equations that deal with less than and greater than signs which are also called "*equality signs*" Also about *rationalizing the denominator*.. AND now he tells us that no one even cares about doing that. so forget about what your last teacher told you. and heres the big one. ** ABSOLUTELY CAN YOU NOT REDUCE THE SUM WITH THE DENOMINATOR.** FOR EXAMPLE ....

**I WARNED YOU NOW . SO IMPLANT THAT INTO YOUR BRAIN**. haha, so after him squashing the fly on the board, he went on about transformations. We learned about how to make parabolas skinnier, fatter, make them move to the left, to the right, and ones that open upside down. Then we played with our calculators and class was over. Time flys when your having fun =P.

**Andd .. the next scribe is ... ABRIEL**.

Hahahahahaha. Where'd you get the image from...? Ah. Nevermind. Hah. Excellent Summary of the class by the way. Today was priceless anyways. Hahaha.

suup guys

nice picture larisa ;)

An excellent summary Larisa, Bravo!

Two little clarifications though:

(1) We call the symbols used in "inequations"

inequalitysigns, not equality signs.(2) Your last teacher taught you well! In Pre-Cal 20S we emphasize rationalizing the denominator. However, sometimes a problem is best solved by rationalizing the numerator instead. This comes up a lot in the study of calculus. The point I was trying to make was that you can rationalize

eitherthe denominator or the numerator; whatever moves us forward in solving the problem.BTW, I

LOVEthat graphic!!! ;-)Post a Comment
