## MCF3M – Dec 18, 2014

PLEASE NOTE:  WE HAVE A REVISED SCHOOL DAY SCHEDULE TOMORROW (DEC 19) FOR OUR CHRISTMAS ASSEMBLY.  I HAVE POSTED A COPY OF THE REVISED SCHEDULE BELOW.

Christmas Assembly Revised Schedule for the Day (Dec 19)

I began the class today by letting the students know that we would be doing a new lesson today from the next chapter of our textbook (Chapter 6 Sinusoidal Functions).  I also mentioned to the students that this would be the last lesson before the Christmas break and that the material from this lesson would be on the final exam for sure (I don’t know yet if we will have time for another unit test when we come back from the break but I will see how things go when we come back).  The lesson for today was titled “6.2 Sinusoidal Behaviour”.  I did the first part of the lesson on the board so I could go over definitions and formulas the students needed to know for this section.  I then gave the students a handout titled “6.2 Sinusoidal Behaviour (continued)”.  I had the students fill in the blanks to this handout by doing the examples using both the black board and the digital projector.  After going over the examples I then gave the students the homework to work on for the remainder of the period (Pages 330 to 333 #1, 6 to 10).

Below you will find a copies of the handouts/worksheets that were distributed/assigned in today’s class.

Dec 18 – Lesson – 6.2 Periodic Behaviour (this was the first part of the lesson where I went over the definitions and formulas for this section)

Dec 18 – Lesson – 6.2 Periodic Behaviour (continued) (this is a blank copy of the handout I gave the students with the examples on it)

Dec 18 – Lesson – 6.2 Periodic Behaviour (continued) – filled in answers (these are the answers to the handout which I did using the board and digital projector).
