Hey how's it going? As you can see im the scribe for today's class, and what a class it was.

Well the class started off with us meeting Mr. Tram. I think the class acted very mature and did not support the stereotypic view of students with a sub. I don't know about you guys but really liked having Mr.T as a teacher for today. It was one of the first days where I understood almost everything.

Okay so let's get down to what we did today in class. We learned:
1. Parallel Lines
2. Perpendicular Lines

Okay lets start with Parallel Lines

First of all we learned that parallel lines are lines which never meet.
eg. Portage Ave and St. Matthews Ave never meet.

We also learned that parallel lines always have the same slope.
eg. A. y= 1/2 x + 4
B. y= 2x + 6
C. y= 1/2 + 9
D. y= 2x + 2
Which pair of lines are parralel?
A and C, B and D

Next we learned about Perpendicular Lines

Perpendicular lines are lines which meet at some point.
eg. Wellington Ave and Arlington meet eachother at their intersection.

We learned that Perpendicular lines have slopes that are negative reciprocals.
eg. m1= 2/3
m2= -3/2
We also learned that if you multiply these two values will end up with -1.

The last thing we learned was how to find a missing value if two slopes were given for parallel and perpendicular lines.
eg. Suppose the slopes of 2 lines are given. Determine the value of K.

A) 2k, 4 and the lines are parallel
(2k=4) /2

B) 2k, 4 and the lines are perpendicular
2k(4) = -1
8k= -1
(8k= -1) /8
k= -1/8

Okay thats all we did in class today but I am interested to know what style of teaching you like best.
Kuropatwa's style- fast teaching with verbal notes and examples on the board or
Mr. Tram's style- medium paced teaching with written notes and examples in the notes???
Well whatever you choose its your personal preference.
PS. Tommorow's Scribe is.... ahmad... at least I think they haven't done it....well see yah tommorow

i didnt expect to understand anything mr tram taught because subs are usually so out of the loop...but mr tram was great!

Mr. Tram is the best. I perferr Mr. Trams methods, but Mr. K is cool too.

Mr. T is the best, first actual class that i actually understood anything and everything at all.

Wow! good question!
Err... i prefer Mr. Tram. i got everything he said. but Mt. K is way fast which is bad for me 'cause i'm slow. and we always run out of time too...

That first comment wasn't me. But thanks to whoever said it.

I'm glad you all liked Mr. Tram. I bet he'd like to hear it from you too. ;-)

Cheers and do your BEST tomorrow!

I don't know why, we don't run out of time with Mr. Tram. We take a lot of time discussing the assignment, then he teaches us the lesson fast enough so that people will undestand it. He even has time for jokes and games. (=
