your week in maths & physics, jan 31 - feb 3

no classes on friday, and only 3 weeks to go!

ib math sl grade 12
see you on thursday for an ib mock post-session. we'll finish differentiation pretty fast next week to get to integration as soon as possible.
ib physics grade 12
on wednesday we'll analyze the mock exam results together, and move towards finishing our last topic on thursday. besides labs, next tuesday should be our last with classes until 3:40 pm (for all but one of you...).

ib math sl grade 11
completing of the presentations and quick review of quadratics on monday and tuesday, and our test on the subject on thursday. it will have ONE of the problems presented in class (not two, as previously announced).
ib physics grade 11
lab on thursday, some more theoretical work today. 

igcse math grade 10
mock outcomes and review on wednesday.

your week in maths & physics, jan 24-28

this week, grades 10 and 12 have their mocks. so it's exclusive grade 11 week (4 weeks to go...)!

ib math sl grade 11
quadratics, quadratics. there shall be a test on friday, so no hw quiz. we'll focus on the review sets this week.

ib physics sl grade 11
let's get electrified. with electric currents, with some computer practicals and real practicals. it seems that some students will have time off on thursday, so more details during the week.

your week in maths & physics, jan 17-21

well, only five weeks to go until the next break! two of them dedicated to the australian open, starting today.

igcse maths
homework quiz today, and then will continue with some more probability action. tuesday and wednesday will be dedicated to mock preperation. no homework for the week, for that reason.

ib physics grade 11
we'll round up the waves phenomena presentations today; we will do some problem solving on thursday, followed by the beginning of topic 5, electric currents. don't forget your log for the week.

ib physics grade 12
tuesday will be a day of presentations: bilal twice (great physicist and green house effect), and promita once (fossil fuels). we'll work further on different energy sources and their mathematics. wednesday and thursday shall be review days for the mock exams.

ib maths grade 11
transformations test today, and continuation of quadratic functions. that's what we'll do this week, and the homework parallel to it is 6 A,B,C & D.
ib maths grade 12
presentations today and tomorrow, then back to mock exam preparation, which we'll extend to friday. no homework for the week.

retest for january 12

we're back with the retests. i'll take a few days to correct all the tests from december, but some of you might want to start retaking something already.
if you want to retake a test, please leave a comment below, with name, grade level and name of test to be retaken. if you do so, it is binding - you should come. 
you may want to use the opportunity to clear doubts before said retest. i'm available every day after class, minus wednesday (retest day) and friday.
i won't be available today (monday january 10) after class excepionally, but i'll be here tomorrow (probably even at 3 pm).

your week in maths & physics, jan10-14

welcome back! six weeks to go until the next break ;)

ib math sl grade 11
we'll have another look at functions this week. the more we look at it, the more we shall understand! this time it's about which changes in a function modifies which parts of it. a little repeat from last years graph transformations. this should be finished within the week, and a mini-test should pop up next tuesday, january 18. the hw quiz on friday will focus on 5 B1, B2 and B3.

ib math sl grade 12
it's on to more differentiation; logarithmic, exponential and trigonometric derivatives are still unknown to us; you might want to have a general look at chapters 19 and 20, parallel to the classes. on thursday and friday next week, we'll allocate time to prepare for the mocks. the hw quiz on friday will have a question each from 19 A, B and C.
ib physics grade 11
wave phenomena is on our menu. we'll do this topic differently: i will find us some time today for research, since i'll have each one of you presenting a subtopic in topic eleven of the syllabus. standing waves will be presented by chris, the doppler effect by tim, diffraction by nino, resolution by yana and sara, and polarization by daniel and dennis. all of these will exclude exercises (only examples are desired).
igcse maths grade 10
we'll start out the new year a little "lighter", hopefully. probability (chapter 25) will be our topic for a minimum of two weeks. we'll have a couple of days of review next week, for the mock exams. exercises from 25 B,C and D will be in the hw quiz next monday.
ib physcis grade 12
hi you four. we'll split up topic 8, a perfect review topic, to be presented creatively. we'll take some time for research and preperation tomorrow (no great physicist presentation), as follows: aidin will take over energy degradation and power generation, max will do world energy sources, promita will present fossil fuel power production, and bilal shall be our expert on the greenhouse effect. we'll do the other topics together; follow the syllabus outline (which can be found as a link on this page), and make sure everything is covored.
