The grade 11 calculus class began their unit on curve sketching. Using prior knowledge of derivatives, students can now sketch more accurate graphs by identifying characteristics such as relative maximums and minimums, concavity, and intercepts.

Orbits & Nodes

AP Physics - Celestial Mechanics

The grade 12 AP physics students concluded their unit on celestial mechanics. Throughout the unit, they analyzed the fundamental principles governing motion in space. Their work included proving Kepler’s Laws, calculating positions of Lagrangian Nodes, and constructing a model of an asteroid’s orbit using orbital elements.

The Roaring Twenties

This week, the grade 10 history class began their unit on the 1920s. Having studied World War I, students examined the war’s influence on the culture of the ensuing decade.
