Grade 11_Math SL_Highlights of the week

Dear All,

Here is the update of what we did last week in Math SL slots. Students were taught transformations of the Circular functions.

Students were taught Circular functions where in students were taught how to write a function when a graph is given and vice versa.

Modelling of Circular functions were also taught where in from the data given students came up with the equation of the function.

Based on this concept students were given enough practice in the class and rest of the part of the questions were given as homework.

 

Thanks and regards,

Grade 11 Math SL team.
