Mr. C is out on Monday, November 18 at a conference

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I will not be in the building on Monday, November 18th.  Please go to Mr. Madgiak’s class for your math hour.  Also please take the chapter 4 review test that is in the book in preparation for this week’s test.

We will have the test on Wednesday if all goes according to plan.  Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns.

I will collect the review test and all other homework tomorrow.


Mr. C

Problem of The Week – Due Thursday, November 14, 2013

If you were to drop an official Major League baseball off of the Golden Gate bridge, how long would it take for you to hear the sound of the ball’s impact on the water?

What information do you need in order to solve this problem?

Give an answer that you know is too high (too much time).

Give an answer that you know is too little (not enough time).

***Give your final answer, be as specific as you can.  I am not asking for a rough estimate.  Please share your answers with me via google docs or on paper by the beginning of class on Thursday.

Good luck!
