Below are organizational updates and weekly bits of fluff for your entertainment.  I will try to add a weekly photo as well.  Please let me know of any updates you would like added to the WICOU.

 


​ 

Smith River: Haya, Ansel, Kate & Nikki

 

Last  week’s Bit of Fluff: Math Quiz, cos I’m a total Math Dork!!

 

1)      Please provide the Pythagorean Theorem

a.     a^2 + b^2 = c^2

2)      If 6x+4 =10, what is x.

a.      X=1

3)      How many degrees in a triangle?

a.      180-degrees

4)      What is the quadratic equation?

a.       ax^2 + bx +c = 0 Where x represents an unknown, and a, b, and c represent known numbers such that a is not equal to 0. 

b.      Not to be confused with the quadratic formula, which is used to solve for the quadratic equation.

5)      What is the y-intercept of the equation y=2x-5?

a.      Y-intercept = -5 or (0,-5)

Bonus:

If the first boat pod leaves chili bar at 10am paddling an average of 2 miles per hour and the 2nd boat pod leaves chili bar at 11am paddling an average of 3 miles per hour.  Assuming the river current is flowing at a constant 1 mph at what time will the two pods meet up?  How far down river will they be?

            They will meet up at 2pm, near cable car rapid, 12 miles downriver from Chili Bar

 

This week’s Bit of Fluff: River Fashion Tips!

1.       Everything goes with plaid.

2.      The “Louder” the shorts the better.

3.      Subtle headwear is a no go!  Get your helmet decorated up!

5.      Hat hair is the new updo!
