For our first lesson, we will introduce pooled testing in the context of coronavirus.
We will be introduced to modular math. We completed pages 1-6 of the handout.
We will be continuing the second half of the handout on modular math. We will also learn modular math applications, such as checksums.
We will finish up our review on modular math, learning how to subtract and divide in modular math as well as learning how to prove divisibility rules with modular math.
We will be exploring an ancient Egyptian technique of splitting fractions into their unit parts. We completed pages 1-16.
We will continue our exploration of Egyptian fractions (pages 17-24). Homework is pages 25-26.
To conclude our exploration of Egyptian Fraction Representation, we will complete the Egyptian Fractions part 1 handout and begin Egyptian Fractions part 2. Pages 6-8 EFR part 2 are assigned as homework.
We will look a method to prove mathematical hypotheses: proof by induction.
We will continue to explore proof by induction and introduce proof by contradiction. *Last class of fall quarter, Happy Holidays!
Suppose we break a stick into three pieces randomly. What are the chances the resulting pieces will form a triangle?
We will continue and complete our packet on breaking sticks. In which scenario are we most likely able to form a triangle from our broken sticks?
This week we will learn how to convert between fractions and decimals, while also exploring the properties of terminating and non-terminating decimals.
We will continue to explore terminating and non-terminating decimals. WHY do decimals have these properties? How can we write non-terminating decimals as fractions?
We will write and define sequences and numbers through explicit and recursive definitions. We will also explore arithmetic sequences and how we can generalize the sum of n-terms in the sequence.
We will continue our work on arithmetic sequences, then transition to learning about arithmetic series.
