    Grades needed for next math course

    As we begin to prepare for the 2018-2019 school year, we would like to  make sure that students and parents are aware of the grades that would need to be earned to qualify for math classes for the 2019-2020 school year.  In addition to minimum grade requirements,  other factors (work ethic, potential for success, teacher recommendation) are also considered.  If any changes are made to the  prerequisites, they would be published in the course catalog and noted in a post here.

    If you have any questions about these requirements, please contact the Mathematics Department chairperson, Candy Sneeringer, at csneeringer@delonecatholic.org.

  • Challenge of the Week 10/8-10/12

    This week's challenge (to find the mistake in the proof of 2 = 1) is attached!

    To submit your answer, please complete the following form:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScKgUHa5Zd-LxdP4KhsiVjCtYkJR0Eg3OjdUhbc-Y43e6kHzw/viewform?usp=sf_link

    All entries must be received by 3:00 on Friday, 10/12.  One winner will be selected from those submitting correct answers and will receive an ice cream ticket to be used at one lunch during the week of 10/15-10/19. 

     

    Solution:

    The correct answer is that between the second to last and last steps, each side was divided by (a^2 - ab); since a = b, a^2 - ab = 0, and dividing by 0 is not permissible.
     
    All previous steps were correct; 
    • in the second line, both sides were multiplied by a, which is permitted
    • in the third line, a^2 was added to both sides, which is permitted
    • in the fourth line, the a^2's on the left were added
    • in the fifth line, 2ab was subtracted from both sides, which is permitted
    • in the sixth line, the ab and -2ab are combined to become - ab 
    • in the seventh line, the common factor on each side was factored out

    I understand that students cannot always access all of the links on the portfolio.  The forms attached to these links are attached.  To use them correctly, I think you need to download them first.  Once you are finished, remember to print to a pdf rather than saving, so that the information that you input will not be lost.  If you notice any that I am missing (other than "Log Directions", which I did not include, because the directions are at the top of each log), please let me know and I'll add it.
