    Did anyone else see the offer for $500 if you signed up 10 students for Khan Academy? The offer seems to have now disappeared.
    • Ms. Felton - Frustrated - I don't know if I am in now because I don't know if I registered through that link with the email. I got my ten students, but nothing so far :( This is bogus.

      • Dr. Palombella - I have the opposite problem. I keep clicking on "hide this post", and "doesn't apply to me", and it won't go away.

      • Mrs. Friedman - Hi fellow Calculus teachers, It looks like I forgot to download this year's released PRACTICE AP CALCULUS AB exam and now the College board Teacher Login website it down for maintenance through March 3. I am supposed to give a mock AP this Sunday! Does anyone have the file downloaded and willing to share with me? Thanks!

      • Mrs. Friedman - Calculus teachers, I just gave my students a practice Free response from an old AP. I was checking the answer by computing the numerical integral in my calculator. I get two DIFFERENT answers depending on the method used! Explanation would be greatly appreciated!

        Here's the problem:

        The definite integral of |sin (x^2)| from 0 to 3.
        When I graph the function and use 2nd, trace, #7 I get that the answer is 1.7048233
        However, when I use fnInt on my home screen I get approximately 1.702!!!

      • Coach Haack - you can't use trace ... it's never exact. that's the problem. I teach AB and BC

        • Feb 6, 2015
    • Mr. Tabori - Trace uses an approximation from a visual graph - most likely this algorithm rounds inaccurately

    The A.P answer key says 1.702 but most of my students did it the other way and put 1.705.
    Help...

      • Mr. Withey - why dont yiu grt your students to make some? they would then "own" and have a greater value to them so might work harder to get them!

    • Mrs. Friedman - Can any Calculus teachers out there tell me if a Midpoint Riemann sum is ALWAYS more accurate than a Left or Right Riemann Sum? If not, what is a counter example? Thanks!

    • Mr. Butler - If you had a trig function where the intervals were picked such that the function had a max or a min at the midpoint, and the L R points were more towards the average.
      For a standard power function, I would say that midpoint is probably going to be better - but for sinusoidals, I doubt that there is even better than random chance that one is better than the other. Even then for a power function, if you picked a function where a max /min was at the midpoint - I could see it being off.

    Muchas gracias a todos los docentes que con sus aportaciones me ayudaron a ser mejor sin que se enterarán; es motivante saber que hay mas personas preocupadas por formar a las generaciones venideras. Les deseo un año 2015 con salud y trabajo, también les deseo un año de amor con su pareja y si no la tienen ya vendrá. ¡¡¡Muchas felicidades!!!

    Feliz Navidad a todos los maestros que participan en esta plataforma!!! he aprendido mucho de y con ustedes al leer sus posts, que la alegría este presente en sus corazones y que la compañia con sus amistades y/o seres queridos este llena de armonia. Nada de caras largas porque a palabras necias oidos sordos, Amen. ;-)

    Any suggestions on which apps or other educational tools you use to teach electron configuration using tablets? Thanks in advance. :)
