This template is in widescreen format and demonstrates how transitions, animations, and multimedia choreography can be used to enrich a presentation.
It covers an extensive study of functions, graphs, limits, derivatives, definite integrals, polynomials approximations and series and applications of all the above.
Each of these topics are approached through investigation activities, emphasis on expressing mathematics from graphical, numerical, analytical, and verbal representations. To best prepare our students for the AP exams we will be working on AP mock exam questions and a lot of in class group activities. Furthermore, students will be doing independent study in a chosen topic which they will need to teach to the class.

TERM 1 PROJECT INSTRUCTIONS:
Students will be divided into groups of 2-3. Each
group will research the Bioshere II project. Biosphere II was
designed to be a self-contained ecosystem but is now used as an
ecological laboratory. You will need to learn all you can about
running a self-contained colony. It would be a good idea to break
up parts of the specific research on areas such as recycling air,
water, and waste, or growing food and providing energy, among
different members of your team.
Your group will have to choose a location for a new
colony which you will build and design. It can be either on Mars,
in Antarctica, the Sahara Desert, on the moon (light side or dark),
underground under the ocean. You may create either a models,
scale drawings, or blue prints to show how the different aspects
of your colony would be managed.
When the projects are complete, the projects will be
exhibited for the rest of the upper school to vote on. The winning
group will get a free pizza lunch!! So be creative and do your
very best because it will also count as 10% of your grade!!
