• 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.

• 39. Environmental Science K.C. Hunter 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!!
