This week, the grade 10 math class investigated reciprocal transformations on basic functions. Using reciprocal properties, students were able to visualize and understand the multiplicative inverse of simple equations. To demonstrate their knowledge, students collaborated in pairs to graph these functions and determine their respective domain, range and transformations.
For their most recent physics unit, the grade 10 students delved into the study of light. This not only consisted of the discovery of light’s speed, but also its nature pertaining to wave properties. Furthermore, students studied the history of individuals who contributed significant findings, such as Galileo Galilei, Max Planck and Albert Einstein.
Before venturing into their study of functions, the grade 10 math class is learning how to handle rational expressions with skill and accuracy. Students reviewed strategies and rules of thumb related to exponents, polynomials, and restrictions, and also perceived graphs of equations for a better understanding of concepts.
