### review session ib math sl 12 - matrices (part two)

tomorrow, december 13, at 4 pm. hope to see you there!

### your weeks in maths & physics until break

8 more days of school, which means 9 math classes and 10 or 11 physics classes until the break. this is the plan for them:

**ib maths sl grade 12**i plan to finish our look on exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric differentiation this calender year. this would leave us with integration and some further statistics for january and february, with our first investigation, too. in any case, we are aiming for a test either on monday december 19 or tuesday, dec 20.

**ib maths sl grade 11**

logarithmic functions and exponential functions test today; besides that, we should be done with functions until next tuesday, where we will have a little test as our last activity before the break.

we will work on probability for the rest of the time we have, which is 8 classes - besides today's test on sets & venn diagrams. it will be a traditional book chapter (25, pages 506-532).

### some khan links for my math students!

math grade 10:

the links on functions begin with this one and the following ones, use them!

math grade 11:

the links on functions begin with this one and the following ones, use them!

math grade 11:

for you guys, here is the place to go and explore exponential rules. click on the next videos for more!

math grade 12:

a full review on derivatives can be found beginning with this video. explore the next ones, too.

### your week in maths & physics, oct 24-28

here is the content and homework for the week!

**igcse maths 10**you will be tested on thursday on algebraic expressions, simultaneous equations and all the basic review topics we've seen in recent quizzes. we will prepare for that. the test will count towards the 2nd term, though. you should use your homework time to review all the quizzes we've done in september and october.

**ib maths sl 11**

we'll finish up sequences and series, and your homework will be on pages 90-92 (the review sets). test is on friday, we might even start with exponentials before that.

**ib maths sl 12**

differential calculus is our topic this week. we'll do fundamental theorm and simple rule today, and hopefully the chain rule, product rule and quotient rules during the week. please accompany these by doing exercises on 481-494. expect a test on thursday, november 3.

**ib physics 11**

big test coming up tomorrow, on topic 2 (mechanics) envolving kinematics (with graphs), newton's laws, forces and dynamics, and work & energy. we will look at uniform circular motion on wednesday and introduce thermal physics on friday.

**ib physics 12**

further prep for our astrophysics test on wednesday. friday, another review session, with electric current problem solving.

**have yourselves a merry little week!**

### show what you know - october 26 session!

this is the last session for the term. please be sure to put your name and the test you want to retake as a comment. good luck to you all!

### grade 10 khan videos!

hello dearest grade 10. let's get to work on this review stuff.

i really recommend the first five videos of the sequence that starts with this one (all on solving equations). the one we started in class today about simultaneous equations is called system of equations.

a series about exponentials (exponent rules) can be found here and in the following videos after that - it is worth reviewing! he also has some workedexamples on fractions and exponents.

come see me in the mornings, thursday after school or mondays/tuesdays after 3h40 pm with extra doubts and/or hw quiz/quiz corrections.
