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.

Math Day at Six Flags

It is my favorite time of the year. Time for the math field trip to Six Flags New England. I will check the weather every day, probably 5 times a day, in anticipation of our day. Hopefully we get dry warm weather. Three days ago there was a 70% chance of rain. Yesterday there was only a 30% chance of rain and today that percentage is a little lower. Thank goodness.

So glad we are going Friday and not Thursday. I will continue to keep an eye on the weather so check back again as we get closer.

Only 5 more days until we go.

Mathematics, Magic, and Mystery

April is national mathematics awareness month and this year's theme is mathematics, magic and mystery. Norton high will have its annual amazing race with questions that deal with this topic. If anyone has any ideas of other activities we can do to celebrate please let me know.

Math Field Trip

I have started planning our field trip, math day at six flags. This field trip is for all the Pre-Calc classes and the AP Calc class. we will be going on Friday May 2nd. I know that is far away, but we have to order and pay for the tickets before March 31st. Normal admission tickets cost $49.99 but we get a discount for an education group. The cost will be $42 which includes the admission and the bus. You will have to bring money with you to buy lunch. If Mu Alpha Theta can make some money with their fundraising then the honor society will help pay for the bus and I will return some money to you.
I will start collecting money when we return from vacation and you will have approximately 2 weeks to pay.

We will only be taking the first 88 students that pay. We will not return to school until 5pm to check your sports schedules and your work schedule.
