Bienvenidos al sitio cibernético de la profesora Bass. Here, you will find information related to your class. If you would like to check your grades, you may find them here. If you need to contact me, you may either e-mail me or complete a contact form. Gracias.
- You may attend the Latino Connection dance on Friday, April 11th, and write about it for up to 50 points extra credit.
- For Spanish, you would write what you saw, learned, and experienced at the dance. Write also how that dance is similar or different to other types of dances that you have attended before.
- For math, you would analyze the dance from a mathematical perspective. For example, you could calculate the ratio of boys to girls in attendance, the percentage of the floor available for dancing, estimate how much the organizers made based on the number of people in attendance and the ticket price, as well as water sales (for this, assume that they spent $500). You can also estimate the percentage of time that people danced when you were at the dance, etc.
- Tickets are for sale at the student store and at the door for $15. Anybody under 20 may attend; they would just need to show an ID, and, perhaps, complete a guest form. The attire is semi-formal (i.e., collar shirt, no jeans -black jeans are ok -. dress, skirt, etc. -- Note: I was informed that if you don't have a semi-formal attire, and really want to attend, do not let this discourage you from attending; just dress up as nicely as you can).
- Just so you know, there will be water for sale, but there might not be any food for sale.
- The dance is from 7:00pm-11:00pm, but you do not need to stay the whole time if you can't. Try to stay, at least, half an hour to an hour, though, so that you get an idea of what the dance is like.
- If you do attend, make sure to sign in at the door, and turn in your write-up by Friday, April 25th.
- You may also do the extra credit opportunities from last semester (Geometry: here; Spanish: here). Those will be due the week before finals exam. You may do the same ones that you did last semester, though. For example, if you watched “Donald in Mathmagic Land”, you may not write about it again, and you may not write about the same articles about which you wrote for Spanish last semester. If you have any questions, please let me know.
- Have a wonderful Spring Break!
