BOB - Transformations

"The time has come," the Walrus said, "to speak of many things..." ...but mainly our most recent unit, TRANSFORMATIONS. It seems like it was only two weeks ago that I was writing the B.O.B. for Circular Functions... ...Oh. Anyway, the unit just seemed to fly by, considering we missed a grand total of 4.5 (four and a half) classes in the short two week span.

I did not find this unit particularly challenging until Friday when Mr. K. introduced PROBLEM SOLVING. This is because the unit was mainly a combination of last year's Functions unit and our previous Circular Functions unit. However, once we reached the problem solving section of the unit I was surprised by how difficult it actually was. It only uses the concepts that we just learned, but it incorporates them in a way where we must logically make a "plan" or order as to how we will solve the problem. I think that is the hardest part, figuring out what concepts to use where and how to fit them into the question. However I think with some help from the review sheet, exercises, pretest, and a little more class time, we all have a chance to do excellent on the upcoming unit test. Good Luck to all, and remember...
