  • WELCOME TO ONLINE SCHOOL!

    I know you guys are GREAT students and will use this time to learn, and prepare for success in college, and in your careers. Lets keep up the exceptional work habits you all have shown me, and lets finish this year stronger than ever. Below I outline your assignments for each of my classes. Please feel free to contact me at paul.mcwhorter@scisd.net. You can also reach me by phone. I will be at school each day, ready to interact with you on any questions you might have. OK, below is the plan.

    1st Period: CALCULUS

    WORK TO BEGIN 4/27:

    Guys,

    Good job on getting your 25 lessons done last week and ‘mastering up’ 10 sections.

     

    This week, there are 11 assignment remaining in this set of assignments. So, your goal for this week is to complete those 11 assignments, and Master Up another 20 of the past lessons.

     

    So, by end of the week you should have completed all the lessons, and have at least 30 of the overall lessons at master level.

     

    Let me know if you have any questions.

     

    Keep up the good work!

    2nd Period: Engineering I

    We will be learning from the textbook which I sent home with you.

     

    Here are your assignments for the week of 4/27 to 5/1

     

    Due Monday: Chapter 4 Section 1

     

    Due Tuesday: Chapter 4 Section 2

     

    Due Wednesday: Chapter 4 Section 3

     

    Due Thursday: Chapter 4 Section 4

     

    Due Friday: Chapter 4 Section 5

     

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    NOTE: If you would like to continue to work on your arduino, contact me and we will make arrangements for your parents to pick up your arduino kits. Then you can work on arduino lessons at home using my youtube channel.

    3rd Period: Algebra II

    WORK TO BEGIN 4/27:

    Guys,

    Great job on Khan Academy last week, and you all did good getting the assignments finished up, and mastering up the topics in this section.

     

    If you log onto Khan Academy, you should see a new set of assignments in the Trigonometry Unit.

     

    Your goal this week is to complete at least 25 of these lessons, and then to go in and ‘Mater Up’ at least 10 of the sections.

     

    Let me know if you have questions.

     

    Thanks,

    Mr. McWhorter

    I will be available by phone or email if you need any help or have any questiong. LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

    4th Period: PreCalculus

    WORK TO BEGIN 4/27:

    Guys,

    Most of you have finished the assignments given so far, and most of you have Mastered Up all the existing assignments.

     

    Those who have not completed the earlier assignments, and have not mastered up each one of them, need to get caught up. You are still responsible for the new lessons, described below, and getting the earlier ones done and mastered up.

     

    I have added new assignments for the remainder of the year dealing with Derivatives. Your assignment for this week is to

     

    • Get caught up on earlier assignments if you have fallen behind
    • Take 25 new lessons in the Derivatives work I have just assigned
    • Mater Up at least 10 of the new derivative sections.

    Let me know if you guys have questions.

     

    Mr. McWhorter

    7th Period: Engineering II

    My goal is for you to continue to learn circuits and circuit analysis. There is an excellent online set of classes.

    Assignment for week of 4/27

    Your assignment this week is to complete another 5 videos, and send me an essay each day on what you learned in the video. Also, you will run into a problem set on combining resistors in this weeks lessons. Be sure to complete that assignment as well.

    7th Period: Engineering I

    Week of 4/27

    (Reese Faul). Reese, continue working on the Arduino Lessons, and you should do at least two lessons a week. On Wednesday and Friday email me evidence that you have completed the project. You can take a picture of the project working. You can do more lessons if you want, but at least two per week. The playlist for the lessons is here:

    8th-9th Block: Advanced Engineering

    Week of April 21

    Gentlemen,

    Congratulations that each of you was able to get your NVIDIA certificate last week. This week, I think we should begin work again on the AI lessons on the Jeston  Nano which I put together.

     

    If you would like the videos on thumb drive, bring a thumb drive to school, and I can put them on a drive for you, if internet access is a problem at home.

     

    Your assignment this week is to complete Video Lessons 27, 28, 34 on my AI series, which you can find here:

     

    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLGs0VKk2DiYxP-ElZ7-QXIERFFPkOuP4_

     

    Lesson 27 and 28 should be review for you. But, I want you to go and write the programs again, so you become familiar with openCV again, since it has been a while since we did it.

     

    YOUR ASSIGNMENT IS ALSO TO SEND ME A REPORT ON MONDAY, WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY OF YOUR PROGRESS.

    A REPORT SHOULD BE AT LEAST A PARAGRAPH, AND SHOULD INCLUDE A SHORT VIDEO SHOWING ME YOU WROTE THE PROGRAM AND THAT IT IS WORKING.

     

    Let me know if you have any questions, or if I can be of any help.

     

    Lets use this as an opportunity to learn even more than if we were stuck at school. Remember, you are preparing for college, and your career. The more you learn during this shutdown, the better prepared you will be. I am confident that each of you will make the most of this opportunity.
