    • Fixed typo in student generated exemplar of homework write-up.
  • Unit 9
    • Added the following text to question 2a in the unit, "After computing a couple of steps by hand, use excel to create a much better approximation using a much smaller step size." It was noted in the teacher materials that, this part of the question can be moved to homework depending on the timing of the lesson.
APRIL 2, 2021 Update
