In the winter I spend so much time blogging on my weather blog that this blog tends to be forgotten, but there is a big math event coming up soon that needs to be written about. In math class we always round the value of pi to 3.14 but if you don't round off the value of pi is 3.1415. Put those numbers into a date on the calendar, 3.14.15 Which is only a few weeks away. March 14, 2015 is being considered "Mega Pi Day" Unfortunately the date falls on a Saturday so we will have to celebrate in school the Friday before. (Friday the 13th). Hope you will join me in celebrating this GREAT day in the math world.

A fantastic weekend

I always look forward to weekends but this one is extra special. Today I am celebrating my 10-year cancer free anniversary. I can't believe it has been 10 years. I think I can remember everything from that time. I still remember the doctor telling me I had cancer and the terrible feeling I got. I remember my awesome nurse Jennifer that helped me get through my surgery recovery and I remember everyone watching the superbowl in my hospital room. The Patriots beat the Eagles. Hopefully the Patriots will do the same this weekend and beat the Seahawks.

Favorite time of the year

Anyone who knows me is aware that this is my favorite time of the year. From Halloween until the end of snow season. The holiday specials are about to air on television and to make sure I don't miss any I have 3 websites that I check regularly and I will post updates here, I can't list everyone of the specials but I will do my best to list lots of times and channels.
ABC Family has the 25 days of Christmas with lots of Christmas specials every day during December. Before December, starting November 23rd, ABC Family has the countdown to the 25 days of Christmas. There aren't too many Christmas themed shows on during that time though.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving airs on ABC at 8pm on November 26th then the Christmas specials begin.  The day after Thanksgiving CBS  is airing Frosty the Snowman and Yes, Virginia there is a Santa Claus. December 1st ABC Family is airing my favorite at 5pm, Santa Claus is coming to town. I'll be watching. As the date gets closer I will post the names of more shows.

Now we just need some snow to make this holiday season perfect.

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.
