S-C-R-I-B-E

Hello there, as you can see today I am the scribe (lucky me).

Yes, well today's class wasn't long and we sure did get a big surprise. It's not one of those surprises where you find out what's happening and then your super happy. It's one of those surprises that make you go "ahwhwhwhw, WHY?!"

Well, surprise surprise, the class got a pop quiz today. It was only a page long but it was still difficult. The questions on the quiz was about our graphing unit. The first question dealt with finding the radius of a circle using either the distance formula or the midpoint formula.

The second question was about finding a coordinate because we were only given one coordinate and the midpoint of the line. Third question was about transforming information into a equation, but we call that the "slope-intercept form", I used that cause it makes Mr. K smiles =)
The fourth question required a ruler, cause we had to graph what was given and tell what the slope was, the x-intercept, and the y-intercept.

We then corrected the quizzes (it was for marks BTW). Mr. K told us how things will be marked on the exams and how we should answer the questions on it. Make sure that you use the right formula. ALWAYS put arrows, label your graph, and have the axis labeled properly. If you don't follow what was told, then you just lost 1.5 marks on simple little errors. Also, if your answering a question that requires only the stuff like the slope, x-intercept etc. Only put the number, not the coordinate. Apparently, there both right, but they will only except one way. That's bonkers! Mr. K got all worked up about that in class. Hah.

Yes, and that's all we did today in Mr. K's pre Cal class. Today's homework is exercise 13, do all the question. If you have any questions, just comment on this and I'll get back to you. Tomorrow's scribe is............ stevenF. Yeah, I think he knows, I told him today in class. Have fun being the scribe and good luck.
