Calculus Humor

Compliments of Eli Reeves

1st & 2nd Blocks:  Calculus

You took your Applications of the Derivative Quiz 2.

The quiz covered Related Rates, The Mean Value Theorem, and Rolle’s Theorem.

We will not meet tomorrow, due to school-wide testing and the visit from the State School Superintendent.

Thursday we will begin using the first derivative to analyze functions.

 

3rd Block:  Advanced Algebra Honors

You took your Midterm Exam today.

Tomorrow, we will have a shortened class due to school-wide testing and the visit from the State School Superintendent.    During that time we will have lunch in the classroom and you may use the remaining time to make corrections on your Midterm Exam.
