We warm up for the new academic year by solving problems from some recent mathematical competitions.
|10/14/2018| [Show less]
We start our exploration of quadratic equations with Vieta's Theorem. As usual, we also do some geometry.
|10/21/2018| [Show less]
We solve some problems on the properties of general functions, and learn to apply Vieta's theorem from last week. As usual, some geometry.
|10/28/2018| [Show less]
We continue exploring quadratic equations by completing the square and learning the formula for the roots. We also start working towards quadratic inequalities, in particular seeing when a quadratic function is positive or negative.
|11/4/2018| [Show less]
We take a step back from learning fundamental facts about quadratic equations, and practive what we have already learnt on some problems. Geometry also makes an appearance.
|11/11/2018| [Show less]
We introduce parabolas -- graphs of a quadratic equations, and solve some problems regarding them.
|11/18/2018| [Show less]
We use the theoretical properties of quadratic equations established during the last few weeks to solve some concrete problems. Also: more geometry.
|12/2/2018| [Show less]
We see what we have learned about geometry and quadratic equations with an individual problem-solving session.

We start a few new topics for the quarter -- weighings, logic and ruler & compass constructions.
|1/20/2019| [Show less]
We continue with the topics of weighings, logic and straightedge & compass constructions.
