SLO information

Earlier this semester, teachers posted information to their syllabi regarding the SLO (Student Learning Objectives) assessment and how it would be graded.  This test was given at the beginning of the semester as a baseline measure and again recently to measure the student’s individual growth.  The score at the end of the semester was originally going to be used to calculate part of the final exam grade.  We recently learned that it is up to each local school to determine how to, if at all, grade this assessment.  Upon further review, we have decided to exclude those scores from being calculated into the final exam grade.  This may, however, change for the upcoming year as the guidelines are still fluctuating.  If you have questions, please contact Mr. T.J. Perry at tommy.perry@cobbk12.org

HW: None

Tuesday
Today, we look at the trig functions again to solve for two missing sides of a triangle. The key to the lesson today is the correct selection of trig function.

HW: None

Wednesday
You start class off with a cube full of problems on the sides. I will allow you to make the cube in class. Also, we fill out the unit circle.
