Mr. Trussell's Math Classes
Welcome to class. This is where you can get you daily classwork and assignments by clicking on the correct link below. I will also post handouts and review sheets under your specific class link from time to time. Please contact me by clicking on the e-mail link to the left or stop by rm. 65 (the portable by the football fields) if you have any questions about the class. I am available before and after school.
AP Calculus BC
Welcome to AP Calculus. This course covers differential, Integral, and Series Calculus. Students can receive credit for MTH 251, 252, 253 over the three terms.
Please see me as early as possible should problems arise. Remember that hotmath is not available for the calculus course.
This course applies mathematical concepts learned in previous math classes to various careers and situations. Management Science covers ways to look at routing problems used by delivery, communications, and transportation companies. Social Choice and Decision Making will look at election methods, fair division, and apportionment.
Game Theroy: The Mathematics of Competition looks at strategies for different types of games and situations that resemble them. Linear Programming deals with methods for optimizing production and profits. We will finish with Probability and where it applies.
This course is an extensive coverage of Euclidian geometry. Topics covered will be transformations and symmetry, angle relationships, similarity, right triangle trigonometry, special right triangles, laws of sine and cosine, proof, probability, constructions, polygons, 2-D dimensions and area, circles and chords, 3-D area and volume, constructions, and conic sections. This is a year long course and will be graded using a standards based system. Please see attachment.
Supplies needed: Scientific Calculator, straight edge, graph paper, 2-1/2" binder, spiral notebook.
Welcome to Pre-Calculus. This course replaces our college algebra and trigonometry classes and combines them into one year long class. In the first semester this course covers the algebra required for entry level math at the college level. Students may, if they wish receive, credit for MTH 111 in March (or Winter term at Chemeketa). The course covers advanced functions, logarithms, polynomial functions, rates, sequences, and series. The second semester covers trigonometry which is equivalent to MTH 112. Credit can be earned in June (spring term at Chemeketa). Topics include the radians and the unit circle, trigonometric functions and their graphs, identities, solving trig. equations, periodic fuctions, polar equations and complex numbers. A graphing calculator is required for much of the homework and classwork. A TI-84 plus is recommended but others will work. I won't be able to help with the programming and use of other brands of calculators. Please feel free to come in before or after school for additional help. The sooner you get help the more you will enjoy the course.
