Minutes 11/13

Hello Math people!!!

I am finally back with my infamous blogs.  Unfortunately, I have to start out all business.  Attendance this week: Becca, AJ, Cody, Jesus, Ryan, Diedrik, Lee, Justin, Lapuz, Hoffman, and even Try stopped in for a bit.  It has been a while, Try.

We started off like always with our problem of the week for 15 minutes.  This one was kind of a thinker and most people solved it with some calculus 251 ninja moves.  This problem could have also been done using only trigonometry.  Who knew???  To everyone who thought this was a calculus only problem and gave up...you should have at least tried. Tsk, tsk.

Becca showed us a video of a woman talking about polyhedra.  I personally learned that Math just sounds better in a British accent.  We did learn some more productive things, too.  If you like to know more...come to Math club and watch the dang video!!!

The last past of the hour was spent making polyhedra by cutting up triangles and taping them together.  21st century technology in action over here.  I got to bring home some super cool paper polyhedra.  That's right, be jealous.

AJ OUT!!!!!!!!!!!
