This post is for Thursday and Friday (11/14 & 11/15) Half-Days for each day!
Song of the Day: Hot Rod Lincoln by Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen
I chose this song in honor of my brother, Paulie. He is turning 50 on Sunday and he used to play this “45” all the time on our record player. Happy 5-0, bro.
AP Stats: We did some acting in my 3rd hour. Yeah, I randomly assigned tables to sampling type and had the kids act out the sampling procedure. Meh, it went alright. The kids did fine, though. For my 7th hour AP Stats I changed it up and we viewed a DE Steaming video segment on sampling types. Meh, again.
Algebra 2: We quizzed on operations of complex numbers. I’m looking forward to more parabola connections on Monday.
Stats & Data: We worked with TI Graphers for normal curve calculations. I demonstrated the NormalCDF & INVNorm functions. I think most kids believe using the charts are easier. I’m glad. On Monday we will construct Normal Probability Plots to assess normality of a data set. If I could have found an online and iPad compatible NPP tool we would not use the graphing calculators at all for this unit.
Well, a very long PTC week is over. A grueling schedule is complete. I enjoyed meeting with parents and all the conferences went well. I’m just really tired and have mounds of grading to do this weekend.
