The grade 12 algebra and geometry students explored lines and planes in multidimensional space. The class learned how to express equations of lines and planes in vector, parametric, and symmetric forms, as well as how to convert between the forms.
The second-semester grade 12 Algebra Geometry class delved into the world of vectors. The students deepened their knowledge of this topic by learning real-world applications of vectors beyond three-space, such as ISBN codes (which can be represented as nine-dimensional vectors).
Many TOPS students are involved in the MGCI EcoTeam, a group of passionate students working to make Marc Garneau CI greener. This week, they hosted their annual Eco-Movie Screening of Geostorm, a popular environmental film about climate change.
The second semester Linear Algebra class began a new unit on permutations and combinations. Students explored concepts such as the Fundamental Counting Principle and the Rule of Sum, which will be used to solve a variety of problems in the coming weeks.
