SL1 - 8/29/16

Hello, and welcome to Standard Level IB Math, year 1. I'm looking forward to working with all of you for an engaging and mind expanding year! I use this website rather than ManageBac since I have more control over what I can communicate. A link to your ManageBac course is a the bottom of this page. The posts here will generally apply to both B and C blocks, though sometimes the two blocks may diverge. We'll cover a lot of math this year - everything from algebra and functions to exponents, logarithms, trig, probability and statistics. We've seen a lot of the ideas in MYP5. Here we'll go into more detail and depth as we expand our understanding. So ... ! See you in class,
Mr. Alei
