Hello students, Welcome back from summer break. Locate your course from the following : Math Studies year 2 - you will be testing out this year. We will review all seven topics including calculator functions. We will begin with a brief overview of STATS followed by continued lessons relating to Differential Calculus. You will also have an internal assessment most of you have already completed as part of your STATS case study paper which you completed last year. Math Studies year 1: IB STATS/Differential Calculus - you will be taking the AP stats exam at the end of the year followed by Differential Calculus lessons during fourth quarter. Advanced Placement Stats students you will also complete the AP stats exam at the end of the year. Quantitative Analysis (dual enrollment) students will be completing this college level course as part of the BCC dual enrollment program, hence this is in fact a college level course within high school setting and it will be treated as such. Please remember to access all resources and websites I provided for your use to prepare for the up and coming assessments. Year one IB students. Please remember that the primary goal of this course is to prepare you for the AP stats exam. We will spend three quarters preparing you for the exam and the fourth quarter on differential calculus. There is an overview of differential calculus throughout the AP stats course as Calculus concepts are covered in this curriculum as well. You will also be working on your internal assessment throughout this portion of the course. Your internal assessment will be due during Math Studies year 2. YEAR 1 students please check out the link labeled summary of formulas and concepts by chapter. Math Studies year 2 students must turn in their internal assessment in order to be eligible to take the IB external assessment. You can access Sample Exams from prior years in the website: http://ib.sunnyhills.net/ibprogram/2008marksheme/Groups3-6/html/group5-en.html In addition the following sites: apcentral free response questions, PURPLEMATH, Stattrek, IBAP STATS LESSONS, Hyper stat tables, z-score table, SAT prep, and MATH TUTOR are informative websites. There is a website which I lined as: All Stats tables in one website that has ALL of the stats tables you need to know how to use. For AP Calculus, Pre-Calculus or Algebra 2 Help students who need extra help with selected topics, you can watch a video tutorial on the topic of your choice on www.hippocampus.org. All Quantitative Analysis dual enrollment students you will have access to http://www.mhhe.com/lind14e You have also the possibility of accessing the ipod component relating to this course. You can also access the online learning center and the BCC campus website. There is another website I strongly recommend called ALEKS. This website can be used by all courses as the program covers all subjects taught throughout K-12. There are many interesting ways to improve your math and logic skills. Try Brainteasers. Or try joining Mensa, admission test required for membership. I look forward to providing you all of the resources, support, and instruction to facilitate your school year and ensured success.
