After viewing the video, please begin working on the following problems from the text in Lesson 4.5 (add to #4,7 from Friday): #6, 8, 9, 12, 20, 22, 24. Feel free to pod-up and attack them with a few classmates. If you search the Dragonometry site carefully enough, you may find a video or two with solutions to some of these problems. 🙂
