More Puzzle Fun?

I passed out a 16 piece puzzle on the topic of Trig Identities last week and I was wondering if anyone has tried that puzzle yet? Are you having any luck? I want you to remember that I told the class it was difficult. It took me a few hours to complete so I expect it will take my students longer than that. You should ask each other for help and maybe get a group together after school to work on the puzzle. If you need help from me, I am available after school Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week. If you get frustrated with the puzzle then you need to take a break and come back to the puzzle at a later time. Don't take too long of a break because the puzzle is due before the year 2008.

Happy Holidays

Like the song states… “It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” well, it is for me. I love so much about Christmas time. I like the music, the lights and decorations, the shopping, college football bowl games and the school vacation. I just came home from Christmas shopping and all I can think is only 18 more days until Christmas. The next thought I have is “oh no” I still have so many presents I want to buy for people. I know this blog has nothing to do with Pre-Calc class, but I am easily side tracked this time of year. Talking and writing about the holiday gets me excited. It is a good thing that I have such wonderful students to keep me on track when I am in class so I don’t spend the whole period talking about the holiday. If you enjoy this time of year and you enjoy watching the TV Christmas specials, you will have to read the blog of Mr. Paulus.
