SL2 - 3/26/18

Welcome back everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful and restful break. We move into the final push now, a couple weeks of content, three weeks of review, and you're into your IB exams. What a fast year it's been! The last topic we'll consider is continuous random variables, specifically ones that are normally distributed. It picks up on some MYP5 ideas then moves quickly. Stay on top of it. Also, if you want some practice IB exams to work on at your own pace, please let me know. See you in class,
Mr. Alei

SL1 - 3/26/18

Welcome back all. I hope you had a wonderful and restful break. On to Q4 now, the final push! Your Trig Quiz 1 scores are up on MB - we will go over that quiz on Tuesday and you will launch straight into your Explorations!. Please see the schedule below. It's really important to get your draft in as soon as possible to leave you time to revise it. The time you have in class will not be sufficient to do a good exploration! Plan on spending 5-8 hours outside of class over the next two weeks (similar to what you would spend on regular HW). Finally, I urge you to talk to me as many times as you can as you go through the process. See you in class,
Mr. Alei

IBCompSci - 3/26/18

Welcome back folks. As we move on to Q4, we'll do more coding and reading between class sessions, though I will still try to maintain a reasonable HW load. The overall plan is to finish file operations, then work with arrays and GUIs, before spending some time in the last few weeks getting a handle on your IA. Hopefully we will make a bit more progress than last quarter, now that you have more fundamentals under your belt. See you in class,
Mr. Alei
