## Olympics – It is all about the Data

Mrs. Sklarin’s statistics classes held their own version of the Olympics on Monday, Feb 23. Each student came up with an event idea that would last about a minute and could be described by a normal curve. They invited the other students in the school to come and take part in the events. It was a fun way […]

## Algebra 2 Explores Transformations in Graphing

Mrs. Sklarin’s Algebra 2 class utilized technology to explore transformations in graphing. The students used a TI-Nspire program to investigate how changing the coefficients and constants change the graph of a function. We were able to move the graphs around by changing one value at a time. The calculator did the heavy lifting and we […]

## Statistics Classes Investigate the Length of a “Minute”

When you are having fun, time is said to “FLY.”  When you are waiting for something, time seams to slow down.  On Friday, Mrs. Sklarin’s Statistics classes tried to wait a minute to stop the clock.  Each student tried to time a minute three times. Some students were very reliable with their “minutes” while others […]

## Trigonometry Graphs in Precalculus

The students in Mrs. Sklarin’s Precalculus class had fun today making graphs for the Trigonometry functions. They are learning about the unit circle and how it connects the Sine, Cosine, Tangent, along with the Seceant, Cosecant, and Cotangent.  We explored how the graphs are created by moving along the unit circle with the “Wolfram CDF […]

## Fractals and Tessellations on Display in Geometry

The students in Mrs. Sklarin’s geometry class had fun while exploring fractals and tessellations. They saw how math and nature are aligned with the Fibonacci numbers by counting pine cone spirals and petals on flowers. We discussed the golden ratio and how it is used in art. The recursive nature of the Fibonacci sequence inspired […]

They folded different types of triangles in four different ways to create the special segments. The students used the tools of math in their construction to get […]

## Precalculus Students at Work

The students in Mrs. Sklarin’s Precalculus class are hard at work using the “Pearson MathLab.” They are able to complete assignments online with options for watching examples, working through examples with assistance, or trying additional similar problems. It is like having a personal tutor at their disposal.
