Today we worked on a piecewise function activity(instead of Lesson 4.5). It was awesome!

We also learned about Veterans Day through a short, fun video. We often do not know why we have days off and what are the meanings behind those holidays. If you would like to view the video again, it is on the left! 

Everyone have a safe, enjoyable 3 day weekend and thank a veteran!

Today we worked on a Desmos activity called Function Carnival. It is my favorite Desmos activity of the year and I hope you all enjoyed it! We had 3 challenges:

The challenges were to create a graph that matched each of the scenarios. It was a lot of trial and error, but we were able to successfully draw the graphs that matched! Great job everyone!!
