### WHOOOT GO EDDIE!!!

Hey guys! Its J to the E-E-E-N-G, haha, your scribe for today.

So our class started off by Trig Modeling. First we looked at a word problem it was a picture of a mountain that was reflecting on the water. We also talked about the sunrise at Saskatchewan, can you believe that they have no daylight saving time? There were also five questions that came along with it. After looking at the picture we saw a lot of transformation. For example the reflection, compression because of the smaller mountain, or should I say a hill, on the back of the mountain. Someone said that they saw the absolute value of the sine function. Mr. K said that he would call it a linear function. We're going to spend quite some time on problem solving. Friday's class would be just the introduction to Trig modeling and on monday we'll do more problem solving, it would take about two classes. We've learned about translation, compression, reflection, invereses, reciprocal and absolute values and they can all be mix together to find a function. The pretest would either be on monday afternoon or tuesday morning, that would be the latest. The test should be either on tuesday afternoon or wednesday morning. Don't forget to do B.O.B.

Then later on Mr. K talked talked to us about our photo assignment about real life math clipart. Our first assignment is called trigonometry, we have to find pictures somewhere out in the world that has to do with trigonometry. But there is an exception we cannot take pictures of peoples faces and take pictures from the internet, we have to take it ourselves using digital cam or cellphones. Mr. K showed us the rubric from last year, it was made by a group of people not just him. I believe Mr. K wants us to take a look at the rubric and if we have any suggestions or changes feel free to add or edit it your welcome to change anything on the document. I'm pretty sure Mr. K will put up the link pretty soon.
