I began the class today by telling the students that I would be continuing with the lesson I had started on Fri May 20 on equations of planes. I told the students to take out the handout titled “MCV4U – Equations of Planes” which I gave them on Fri May 20. I first showed the students the video titled “Equation of Planes Sample Video Lesson” (see the May 20 blog posting for further details and I also posted it below) and then I did the second example from the lesson with them in class.
After finishing off the last Friday’s lesson, I then told the students I would be doing more examples related to equations of a plane today. I then gave them a handout titled “MCV4U – Equations of Planes Continued”. I told the students that there were some things from the handout I would just be going over and that they would not have to fill anything in (I suggested they highlight important concepts). For the examples that required students to fill things in, I put it up on the digital projector and then I went over the examples using the projector and the black board. After the lesson, I assigned the homework for today (Read Pages 441 to 450 and then do page 451 #1 to 9 – This was assigned for homework on Fri May 20, so I am re-assigning it today; Do #1 to 6 from the worksheet titled “More Vector & Parametric Equations of a Plane Questions” – This worksheet I gave the students in class today). Students are encouraged to email me if they have any questions from the homework ahead of time (abawa@).
Below you will find a copies of the handouts/worksheets that were distributed/assigned in today’s class.
MCV4U – Equations of Planes (blank) (Handout)
MCV4U – Equations of Planes (filled-in) (I was unable to finish the lesson on May 20 so we continued this lesson at the start of today’s class. This is example 2 from the lesson from last day.)
MCV4U – Equations of Planes Continued (filled-in) (I put up the answers to the examples using the black board and digital projector.)
More Vector & Parametric Equations of a Plane Questions with Answers (I handed this worksheet out today. The students are to complete #1 to 6 for homework from this worksheet.)
Equation of Planes Sample Video Lesson (I showed this video to the students at the start of today’s class to so we could discuss how the to derive the formula for the equation of a plane. I showed them part of this video on Fri May 20. The login is “mts” and the password is “mcv4u” to access the video.)
Extra Examples of Equations of Planes (I told the students to watch this video to see some additional examples on equations of planes. I had also posted this video on Fri May 20. The login is “mts” and the password is “mcv4u” to access the video.)
