Numb3rs in Calculus class

I love how excited my students were today when I announced we were watching an episode of Numbers in Calc class. They didn't seem to mind that after the episode we were doing an activity using tangent and normal lines. I'm glad I could give them what a few referred to as "a great Friday" Thank you CBS for having this show. too bad the show was cancelled.

Halloween television

Tomorrow night, on abc, is one of the best halloween specials. "It's the great pumpkin, Charlie Brown" is on at 8:30. Airing before Charlie Brown is Toy Story of Terror. I'll have to set the DVR because I will be at school watching the volleyball game.

Christmas in Boston

I spent the day in Boston with my daughter, we went to a store called "Christmas in Boston". This store was two floors of nothing but Christmas ornaments.
Now I am excited for Christmas. 74 days until Christmas and Just 47 more school days left.

Halloween time

tomorrow is October first. I call that date the official start to holiday season with Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Anyone who knows me knows that with holiday season comes television specials. Hocus Pocus is one of those specials which was on television at 6 different times over the weekend and again last night. Stay tuned to my blog for an update of dates and times for specials and enjoy.

Start of the School year

We have completed our first ten days of school and I can say that I know I am going to have a great year. I love the classes I am teaching and I absolutely love all my students. I feel so lucky to have a job that I get excited about going to every morning. I only hope that I can make my classes enjoyable for my students. I need to show them that you can have fun while learning math. At least that is how I feel. I hope everyone reading this has a wonderful year.

Favorite time of the year

Yes, it is that time again. I am sure everyone is excited to get back to school. I know I am. I am teaching two AP Calc classes and one advanced math topics class. I am looking forward to a great year with awesome students. Things will be a little different for me this year. Neither of my children will be home. My daughter is starting her senior year of college and my sone begins his freshmen year of college. Both of them have to move into the dorms on Monday. So we will head North to Boston to move Jennifer into Wheelock college. We will return home to pack up Bryan's things and then head south to Buzzards Bay where we will move Bryan into Mass Maritime Academy. I hope everyone has a successful school year.
