Dr. Sawyer’s Math Classes
Geometry students have been doing constructions: producing specific figures using a compass and straightedge. Here they are working on parallel and perpendicular lines. They have also been learning how to write equations of lines and graph them. Graphing a straight line can be difficult when you are standing at the board with a slippery meter-long straightedge. Meanwhile, students in calculus are doing “simple” problems such as finding the derivative of a function that contains a fraction and a square root. It took up only about half of the board.
