Hi I'm Ben

Hi, I'm Ben and I'll be joining you guys this semester. I'll be checking up on you guys once in a while to see how you are doing. I've already completed this course 2 years ago so I can help you guys out when needed. You may see me comment on your scribe posts as well.

Here's a little math fun. Mr. K showed us this video back when I was in his Grade 11 Precalc Class and it was really funny. Good job on the posts so far and have fun this semesters

Paul's Blog

November 26th Class:

First of all we started off class with a problem where we were asked so find x and y.

1. First we labelled the triangle.

2. Second we found angle DEF (70 degrees) because it is the exterior angle (the measure of an exterior angle is equal to the sum of the interior opposite angles) to angle ADE.

3. Then we found out that x= 100 degrees because it is the exterior angle to andgle CDE.

4. And finally we found y=60 be cause x is exterior to angle BAC, therefore you already knew that one angle in triangle ABC was fourty and 40 + y = x whereas x=100, therefore y= 60.

After that problem was solved we went on to another set of problems where the reflexive property was required. The reflexive property means that something is identical to itself.

This triangle is congruent due to the Congruent Triangles Law (SSS).

After that the class went over Circle Geometry - Investigation 2.

We were shown methods of finding the middle of the circle and then he assigned us Investigation 3 for homework.

Next blogger, which was randomly selected, is Stephanie.

I will be your host for tonite's Math meal

Check out this picture this is the same one from the white board Mr.Kuros kindly showed us and we instinctively learned like students what the meaning of this mis mash is about!

****too explain in detail.... without too many words ill put up pictures but in groups of 3 for the definitions*****

So check out what a line
Segment, a chord and a Diameter are...

How about what the heck is a Secant, Tangent, or ooo a Radius!

Just because I like you Ladies and Gentleman I'll define to you what the heck is are Major and Minor Arcs, what is meant by being bounded by something, what's a Sector and what an INSCRIBED ANGLE is.... although this will be the last circle for tonite

(Aww... too bad actually I'm actually getting tired of making these circles)

Well to end off this night peoples Im going to say there is this assignment similar to that of today's work where it covers all what I summarized for you Ladies and Gents.

Oh yeah Exercise 30 is on this material also.

I hope this meets Textbook/Mr . Kuro's standards just kidding but I do wish that it hasn't been a waste of your time to read this peoples. '

Give yourselves a hand for taking your time to learn.

And to on a final note Gambete Mina (work hard everyone) '''

hi :)

Analytic Geometry was complicated if you don't follow the steps on solving it and analyze each questions!..Before I was really having a hard time on some topics in this lesson esp inequalities and solving 3 equations. But everything had change and went clear after Mr. K teach each every steps how to solve it!...I really enjoyed learning in class! hopefully this test will be great!and hopefully I'll do great as well. I hope I will use the right formula in right equations and solve them properly!..

good luck for tomorrow's test!!..

study hard!!.= ]


Test on monday!!...Good luck to all..

Analytic geometry first I had trouble solving some problems but when Mr. K teach us a lot more and give more problems to solve I think I got some of it. This unit is not easy it takes time to know how to solve it. Well for me it is but for some of the class I think their good at solving things. Hope I can solve them right on our test tomorrow..MONDAY!..Hope you all have a nice weekend...see you all on monday.. Good Luck on test ClassMates^_^


Analytical Geometry is not that easy ...for me especially when were dealing with rational inequalities,and absolute value inequalities...Thank God Mr.K helped us..... to really understand this topic...So thats all ,i think I'm ready ...ready on Monday's test..
Good Luck!!!!!

Reflection: Analytic geometry Test...

Geometry test..
ahmm,, I think this unit is quite hard for me, especially when it comes to rational inequality but thanks to mr. K I finally understood how to solve it, so I'll do my best on our test. In this unit my favorite topic is the system of equations because I think it is much easier than inequalities. When solving inequalities I prefer to use number line instead of using graph because when I'm using graph it confuse me.. =)
Ok I think that's it...
aja!! :)

Hi...It's kim ur scribe 4 2day..... today Mr.k gave us the following equation...

When you graph the equation your Graphing Calculator you will end up of having an ASYMPTOTE(a straight line approached by a given curve as one of the variables in the equation of the curve approaches infinity.)

Horray......! were finally done in Analytic Geometry...But dont forget that on Monday...we have a Test.....Good Luck.....Everyone!!
Oh...Actually today Mr.K also introduced Geometry.......

1.The sum of the angle of triangle is 180 degrees

2.The measurement of an exterior angle to a triangle is equal to the sum of the interior opposite angle .

3.Alternative angles are congruent
Transversal is the line that intersect the parallel line
The word congruent means equal..
For a long term memory just always remember the letter Z when your dealing with alternative angles.

4.Corresponding angle are congruent
For a long term memory just always remember the letter F.,.....

5.opposite angle are congruent ,remember the letter X......

That's the different types of triangle that we are going to encounter in our Geometry unit.

Again ....we have a test on Monday....and if you want a bonus mark just answer this question .....
...why does triangle is equal to 180 degress...Proof
next scribe will be ...Niwatari-san

Pre- Test on Analytic Geometry

Hello!! everybody.....

Today in class we did our pre-test but before that, we work on Analytic Geometry #8

here's the question...

8. The total number of known moons around Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune is 43. The total number of moons around Saturn and Neptune is 9 more than the number of moons around Uranus. Saturn has 2 moons more than twice the number of moons around Neptune. Find the number of moons each planet has.

To solve this problem you have to do the following:

  • first, you have to find the equation
  • Then when you have the equation, set it up so it will be easy for you to solve it.
  • Then when solving it, you can use elimination or substitution

here's the equations..

S = # of moons around Saturn
U = # of moons around Uranus
N = # of moons around Neptune

S + U + N = 43
S + N = U + 9
S = 2 + N

(click the images to make it big)

some question that we did on our pre-test..

Analytic Geometry Review

Hi! There I'm "Larlyn014" your scribe for todays class..

Inconsistant => No solution and there's no point met in line

Consistant => Indepedent to each other

Dependent => two lines in both the same spot, solution are infinate
For example: x + y=5 This two equation
2x + 2y=10 are equal to each other.
there for they we're both in the same line and has infinate number of points

Plane => flat surface in mathematical equation

2 dimension Solve:
2x - 3y=4
6x + y=-2

You can either use Substitution or Elimination depend on how you solve them and still get thet answer we wanted.

In this equation Mr. K used Elimination because it's much more easier than substitution. But remember its still depend on what you want to do it as long as the answer and the equation is right.

anyways back to the equation......

The equation is in the picture...(X,Y)

3 dimention solve:
4x+y+z=5 Line 1 (L1)
2x-y+2z=10 Line 2 (L2)
x-2y-z=2 Line 3 (L3)
Rules 1: L4=L1+L2
4:L7=solve L6
5:L8=solve L5 w/ x=1
6:L9=solve L5 w/ x=1


Don't forget to always label your equations
It can be useful while solving the equation.
Reminder: Read and watch the video that mr. K posted in the blog its about "Digital Ethics"
And tomorrow he said if we have time we're going to take the pre test and test on friday.
Analytic Geometry review sheet continue..tomorrow...
Next scribe will be EchizenR18 ^_^

Analytic Geometry

Hi there,

Today in class first we did the home work from yesterday and here it is.

Step substitute -2x+5 in the spot of Y, to get

Step 2. Simplify the equation and add the like terms.
so you will get,

Step 3. Find the roots by using the quadratic formula.

The roots are
Then plug the X roots to find the Y values.

After that we did some review questions and here is the first one that we have to find the centre and the radius of a circle.
1) (x+1)^2+(y-4)^2=13
  • To find the centre, find the additive inverse of the X and Y. Which is -1,4. There fore the centre is (-1,4).

  • To find the radius, square both side and you will find the that answer is the square root of 13.

2) The second Question was a little bit different than the first one because we have to find the distance between a point and equation of line. (3,4) to the line 2x-5y=7

after you plug the numbers into the equation you will find that the distance is

Hey Mr. K,
The thing that I need help on is equations with three variables. We didn't go very in depth with this subject on class and I need more explaining on it.

Where Are We Wordle

I took all the BOBs you wrote. Copied the text and pasted it into Wordle to look for patterns in what you had written.

This wordle was generated by the first 13 BOBs written tonight.

Tell me, what do you see?

Just a bit of help for Niwatori-san?

When solving 3 equations with 3 unknowns as well as solving 2 equations with 2 unknowns. I'm not quite clear with the substitution method where you substitute something into the equation.

And im not quite sure about when you are given such an equation such as this one shown from quite a while back Im just not sure about the squaring the square-root. I know you square the other side also but then you end off with a radical and the variables that came along with it after isolating the variables.

Thanks Mr . K if what I asked gets cleared up so im not in mud anymore =p

Things i need help on ...

I'm struggling with every topic ... and like Julius said, a review on everything would help.

- Sayana

Welcome back, Mr. K!

Im struggling with these topics:
  • Circles
  • Imaginary roots/Discriminants
  • Quadratic Formulas
  • Ambiguous Triangles
Thats all I can think of right now... Maybe a review on every topic will help.


Welcome Back Mr. K!

Here are the topics that I'm having the most trouble on

* The Ambiguous cases of triangles.
* Circles
* Radical and Rational Equations

Welcome back Mr. K!!

hi everyone!

today is a fresh start for each of us! Mr. K just arrived and i know were all excited to see him:))

today we have an assembly which means we had a short class.

our today's class was divided into three points:

1. Reintroduction - which means going over our previous topic, the quadratic function, triginomentry (sin, cosine, tangent and ambiguous triangles), analytic geometry.

2. Blogs, Scribe Post, Digital Ethics - Mr. K mention that we need to blog every single day means that everyone should participate, because its also important that everyone knew what's going one in class and if someone is absent in our class they can go to blog and check what they missed. And its worth 5% of our class mark, so we better do it:D.

3. Where we at! - where on analytic geometry right now and were almost done with this topic and soon were going to write our pre-test and test.

Before the assembly Mr. K give us the homework which we have to blog and tell him if we need extra help with the previous lessons or topic, so he will have an idea where we are at. So we better do it because its our chance to review some stuff.
He also gave us our homework for tonight. We need to solve this equation

(x-2)squared+(y+1)squared=25 (equation of a circle)

2x+y=5 (equation of a line)

Mr. K said we need to find a points of intersection where the circle and the line intersect. the point is (2, -1), the 2x+y=5 we need to change it to a standard form of equation and substitute those points. These are just some clues to solve the given equation.

I think that's about it!..

Don't forget to do the homework and don't forget to arrive on class early tomorrow!!(so no lates)


next blogger is NOHOM..:)

I'm thinking!

hello Mr. K welcome back!!.And good to see you:))

i need some help with these following topics..

-ambiguous triangles

i think thats it..thank you...

Things I need help on.

Things I need a review or need general help on are:

I am struggling

I am quite struggling with these topics:

  • unit Circle topic.
  • how you get the sin, cos & tan of the theta. I don't know how to deal with cos and tan. Like i cant solve this: cos^2(theta)=cos(theta) where 0degrees is greater than or equal to theta and less than or equal to 360. something like that. or this one: 3cos(theta)-1=-2cos(theta)
  • ambigious triangle.
  • As simple as getting the vertex. I am just weak with getting the vertex.
That's it. I think.

Digital Ethics

Blogging is a very public activity. Anything that gets posted on the internet stays there. Forever. Deleting a post simply removes it from the blog it was posted to. Copies of the post may exist scattered all over the internet. I have come across posts from my students on blogs as far away as Sweden! That is why we are being so careful to respect your privacy and using first names only. We do not use pictures of ourselves. If you really want a graphic image associated with your posting use an avatar -- a picture of something that represents you but IS NOT of you.

Here are a few videos that illustrate some of what I want you to think about:

Two teachers in the U.S.A. worked with their classes to come up with a list of guidelines for student bloggers.

One of them, Bud Hunt, has these suggestions, among others:

  1. Students using blogs are expected to treat blogspaces as classroom spaces. Speech that is inappropriate for class is not appropriate for our blog. While we encourage you to engage in debate and conversation with other bloggers, we also expect that you will conduct yourself in a manner reflective of a representative of this school.

  2. Never EVER EVER give out or record personal information on our blog. Our blog exists as a public space on the Internet. Don’t share anything that you don’t want the world to know. For your safety, be careful what you say, too. Don’t give out your phone number or home address. This is particularly important to remember if you have a personal online journal or blog elsewhere.

  3. Again, your blog is a public space. And if you put it on the Internet, odds are really good that it will stay on the Internet. Always. That means ten years from now when you are looking for a job, it might be possible for an employer to discover some really hateful and immature things you said when you were younger and more prone to foolish things. Be sure that anything you write you are proud of. It can come back to haunt you if you don’t.

  4. Never link to something you haven’t read. While it isn’t your job to police the Internet, when you link to something, you should make sure it is something that you really want to be associated with. If a link contains material that might be creepy or make some people uncomfortable, you should probably try a different source.

Another teacher, Steve Lazar, developed a set of guidelines in consultation with his students. You can read them here.

Look over the guidelines and add the ones you like in the comments section below this post; either from one of Steve's students or one of your own. I think Bud's suggestions are excellent. We'll be using the one's I highlighted above as a basis for how we will use our blog.

Mr. K.

Today, Dr.A discussed the Quadratic,Absolute Value and Rational Inequalities.
Hmm...before that Dr.A explained the equationagain,Camille perfectly explained it last day(similar thing)
if you want more info... or practice about Quadratic Inequalities ,just click the links below....

lets proceed to the critical numbers (where the function is undefined)....Rational Inequalities



How many critical numbers are there in that equation?


3 critical numbers (1,2,-3)

After we identified the Critical numbers were now ready to Graph it on the number line...

Decide which intervals include numbers that make x-1/(x-2)(x+3) negative by substituting any number .......

let's try -4

just subtitute it to the equation x-1/(x-2)(x+3)


try 0.....(positive)

try 3(positive)

the only number that satisfy the given inequality (first one) .....therfore the answer is...


Absolute value inequalities

lets solve this equation:


we are looking for those real numbers x whose distance from the origin is less than 3 units.

(-3,0] [0,3)

Linear Inequalities / Quadratic Inequalities

hello there!

first off we hand in our homework due today!Ex 27 #11

=The sum of two numbers is 181. Three times the larger plus twice the smaller equals 459. Find the numbers

1. we need to se
t up the equation
x + y = 181
2. eliminate by multiplying x + y = 181
2(x + y)=2(181)
3. subtract
so you'll get x = 97
4. substitute the x=97 to the equation 2x+2y=362 and find y
194 + 2y=362

1. we were given an example


"and" means intersection
=we have to look for x and y plane where both equations are true.

the red broken line represents the 1st equation.
the black broken line represents the 2nd equation.

if we were to check the intersection of the points we need to find a points that satisfy the 2 equation.
(0,0) is the easiest point to check if the line is not touching it!

so if we substitute that in the solution we will get:

0+0>6 that's true
2(0)+2(0)<5>the shaded part represents the intersection of the 2 equation.

*remember that ><>/\<>and included*

means union
=we have to find solution that satisfy 1 of the equation


(again this line will be excluded and will be broken line)

green line represents the 1st equation.

blue line represents the 2nd equation.

we need to find each quadrant were one of the points sati
sfy one equation.
we also need to check each quadrant. we use the points (1,-5) where only one of the equation was satisfied.

we are finished on this topic. Now were moving on to the new one, its all about
Quadratic Inequalities.

Speaking of quadratic, what image do you think will be using??the answer is the parabola.

equation will be *y=axsquared+bx+c*

1st step is to graph:

this is a general parabola, we have to take a point inside and outside the parabola so we know which part should be shaded.

we are given an example:


-we have to find the vertex

-then substiture

so the vertex will be (1,-9)

then we need to find the intercepts
intercepts are (4,-2)

then we need to find a point inside and
outside of the parabola. (0,0) for inside, and (5,0) for the outside


next example is x(squared)-2x-8>/0

we use solid circle because the points are included, we use this in set notations.

*the blue line represents the outside points. [-2,-infinity] and [4,infinity].

*the maroon line represents the inside points, points between -2 to 4.

In this case we only have one dimension (x-axis) so you can drop the y-axis. We don't have to worry about it.

Again we always have to check if were right, we have to find a point that satisfy the equation.

(0,0) can't be the right point because if we substitute it we'll get 0-0-8>/0. Its wrong!

(5,0) we'll get 5+10-8>/0. Its right!

(6,0) we'll get 36-12-8>/0. Its right too!

So either one of the two points can be use to satisfy the equation but not (0,0)


Sorry because I'm not sure how to do the uppercase of 2 so i put squared!
The shaded part represents the intersection.

Oh don't forget we have homework to do!
Exercise 28 # 1-3

hope you did learn something on my blog!!..good luck to everyone!!:))


the next scribe will be Kim C.:D..

Linear Inequalities.

last monday, before we went on holidays we learned about One Linear Inequalities.
teacher said, we could represent each linear inequalities by these representation:

this means that > with out the underscore at the bottom that 6 is included in the solution
and for y >(with the underscore at the bottom) 6 means that it is not part of the solution

she gave a couple of examples like this..

normally its always easy to figure out the right region when you use (0,0)
last example the teacher gave us was this one:

the intersection of these two inequalities is where they both intersect in this case they intersect at the region where you see both colours are present.
That's it. next scribe is Camille : P

Circle Hyperbola

Hello ...
Sorry for the late post, but here's what we did on Friday.

First off, we went through the homework that were given on Thursday.

w + l + h = 80 cm
Length=10cm less than twice the sum
of width and height and twice the width exceeds the height by 6 cm. Find the width, length and height of the box.

~We didn't go over the procedure on how to solve this problem, but the answers were:
h = 18cm, w = 12 cm, l = 50 cm

Then there was the question from the book (Ex. 25 #1) Letter "c" was done by Ramina on the white board. For those who didn't get to copy the procedure, here it is...

1. a) 3x-4y+5z=2


(3) 3x-4y+5z=2 (3)
(5) 4x+5y-3z=-5 (5)

+ 20x+25y-15z=-25


(2) 4x+5y-3z=-5 (2)
(3) 5x-3y+2z=-11 (3)

+ 15x-9y+6z=-33


(13) 23x+y=-43 (13)

+ 229x+13y=-559
-270x = 540

ˉˉˉˉˉˉ ˉˉˉˉˉ
-270 -270

x = -2


ˉˉˉ ˉˉˉ
13 13

y = 3


5z = 20
ˉˉˉ ˉˉˉ

5 5

z = 4

After this, we talked about a little something new called Circle Hyperbola.
It looks like this ...

A Circle Hyperbola can only have 0, 1, or 2 intercepts and no more than that. We can find the intercept by putting the equation on our calculator OR solve it algebraically. We did some examples as a practice on finding the intercepts of Circle Hyperbola.

► y=x-1

(x-5) (x-2)
x=5 x=2
y=4 y=1

another example was...


²=x²-5 → y= √x²-5 (#1)

y=-6/x (#2)

(-6/x)² = (√x²-5)²
36/x² = x²-5
x^4-5x²=36 (substitute x^4 to u=x²)
(u-9) (u=4)
u=9, -4
x²=9, -4
x=3 , y=-2
x=-3 , y=2

After doing these examples, there were homework that were assigned for us to do. Exercise 26 (# 1-5) Also, don't forget to hand in your bonus mark homework sheets before Dr. Eviatar leaves!

Chae: le six novembre 2008

Haii! (:
I decided to do the blog today since I happened to check on the blog and didn't see an update. I hope Dr.Eviatar doesn't mind if I scribe here with "no permission" :)

Well, today we had to hand in #6 of Exercise 24 from the book. There were some volunteers who put the answer for it on the board. I didn't quite know how to do it, so I didn't volunteer.

Here are the answers for #6 a.)&b.)

3x + 2y = 4 -->equation [1]
x - y = 3 -->equation [2]

Multiply the equation [2] by 3 like this:
3(x - y - 3) = 0
=> 3x - 3y - 9 = 0

Then you subtract the new equation from the first [1] equation:
3x + 2y - 4 = 0
- 3x - 3y - 9 = 0
5y + 5

Find the value of y:
5y = -5
=> y = -1

Substitute the value of y in the equation [1] to find the value of x:
3x + 2(-1) = 4
3x - 2 = 4
3x = 6
x = 2

Answer is: (2,-1)

2x + 3y = 48
3x + 2y = 42

Same process, but this time you multiply both equations to get rid of y:
2(2x + 3y =48)
=> 4x + 6y = 96

3(3x + 2y = 42)
=> 9x + 6y = 126

Addition-Subtraction Method:
4x + 6y = 96
- 9x + 6y = 126
-5x = -30

Value of x:
-5x = -30
=> x = 6

Substitute the value of x to get the value of y:
2(6) + 3y = 48
12 + 3y =48
3y =36
y = 12

Answer is: (6,12)

After that, we started a new topic. It was sort of the same as our previous topic (Systems of Linear Equations in Two Variables), but this time it is for THREE variables. I'm still in the process of understanding it, so pardon my explanations. Well, all I have right now are some notes from the board (-_-"). It was so much better when we can just look at the slides again in the blog for information.

But anyway, here are the notes:

Independent - 1 Solution (all 3 equations intersect)
Dependent - Infinite solutions -> concide
-> common line
Inconsistent - No solutions

The graph for the "Ordered Triple" example (3,3,3)

The graph was sort of hard to draw, and to understand. As a matter of fact, I don't really get how you draw the points in it. That's why we're not really asked to draw the graph.

Example of how to solve equations with THREE variables:

x + y - z = 2 --> [Equation 1]
x - 2y + 2 = -1 --> [Equation 2]
3x + y - 2z = 4 --> [Equation 3]


[Equation 1] + [ Equation 2]
=> 2x - y = 1 --> [Equation 4]

2 * [Equation 2]
=> 2x - 4y + 2z = -2 --> [Equation 5]

Equation 3 + Equation 5
=> 5x - 3y = 2 --> [Equation 6]

3 * [Equation 4]
=> 6x - 3y = 3 --> [Equation 7]

[Equation 6] - [Equation 7]
=> x=1

Substitute x=1 into [Equation 4]:
=> 2 - y = 1
=> y = 1

Substitute x=1 and y=1 into [Equation 1]:
=> 1 + 1 - z = 2
=> z = 0

Answer to the equations: (1,1,0)

Well, that's all the notes that was for today. Things for homework are Exercise 25 #1, and the problem she wrote on the board.

In case you weren't in class or didn't get to write it down, here is the problem (Parts of it are already summarized/put into an equation by Dr.Eviatar):

w + l + h = 80cm
Length is 10cm less than twice the sum of width and height and twice the width exceeds the height by 6cm. Find the width, length, and height of the box.

l = 2 (w + h) - 10
2w = h + 6

That's practically what we did for class today. I hope I helped in the new topic in some way. I'm not going to pick who's going to be the next scribe since I sort of just barged in the blog to put what we did today [kind of saying that I scribed with "no permission", haha.] I have to do the homework myself. I'll at least "try" to do it (-_-") I'm still trying to understand the given problem.

Till next time my fellow classmates,
Charizze ^-^

Digital Ethics

Since the smartboard is still out of commission, here's something to think about while waiting for Shasta to post the notes.

Cheers, Dr. Eviatar.
