### School Week 8: ScreenCasts, SmartNotes and Code, oh my!

AP Computer Science continued Chapter 4 on the static java.lang.Math class (sqrt(), pow(), min(), max(), abs()) and the immutable java.lang.String class (length(), substring()). We also talked about the differences between ints, doubles and Strings. We used java.util.Scanner for input and javadoc to document our methods. We'll start Lab 4 next week.

Calculus Research Lab started Chapter 3 about the Definition of the Derivative as the limit of the Difference Quotient! Lab 3.8 starts on Monday. So, we're back to a YouTube Wednesday week.

CRL 308 Derivative Defined

AP Calculus BC practiced FRQs related to implicit differentiation, optimization and related rates. Then we had a test on FRQ Friday! We have our second MCQ Monday this coming week. Last time it was 20 questions from a Part IA without a Graphing Calculator. This time it'll be 14 questions from a Part IB with a Graphing Calculator. Unit 5 introducing Integrals starts Tuesday.
MCQ 2003 AB Part IA

BC 408 Optimization

BC 410 Related Rates

PreCalculus for Seniors finished Chapter 4 with a section on Quadratic Inequalities. Then we had a test on FRQ Friday! Chapter 5 using Inverse Functions to solve equations analytically starts on Monday.
