How many different licence plates can be made if there must be 4 letters followed by 3 numbers without repetition? This week, our linear algebra course dealt with combinations and permutations, as we learned how to apply equations and tricks to find the number of ways elements in a set can be rearranged or chosen.
Do you like reading about ballet? How about mystery? To end off a semester of English, we are presenting seminars on a variety of short stories which encapsulated themes of power and blindness. One of the stories we read was Heather O’Neill’s Swan Lake for Beginners, which details a fictional experiment that cloned a world-renowned ballet dancer.
After a month of planning and designing, we finally presented our Rube Goldberg machines in grade 12 physics. Our machines are designed to perform simple tasks in intricate ways consisting of multiple steps and energy transfers. Examples of tasks our machines performed include cutting hair and ripping toilet paper.
From prose and poetry to madness and insanity, many themes prevail in King Lear, which we are studying in grade 12 English class. Arguably one of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies, we watched different renditions of the play and will be submitting an analysis next week. We will also discuss relevant themes and characters in a fishbowl seminar.
