I just finished correcting one class of Pre-calc tests. It took over 3 hours to correct the tests. I spent most of the time writing notes on why the answers were wrong. I put a lot of effort into making a review sheet to do for homework and then another to post on edline. I wish my students put the same amount of effort into doing those sheets and preparing for the test. There were four perfect test scores of 100 and I congratulate all of you that worked hard to prepare for this test. I was disappointed in the number of students that did poorly. I hope my students take this as a learning experience and if they did poorly they will try harder for the next one. You need to put a lot of effort into a Pre-calculus class if you want to be successful.

Go LancersI love that the whole school is coming together to vote on myFoxBoston.com. This is a great way to promote school spirit. My last check showed Dennis Yarmouth with 311 votes and Norton High with 1672 votes. Keep spreading the word, we don't want to give them a chance to catch up. Then on Friday we need to continue to show our school spirit by coming to the game and cheering our team on to victory.

Hello all you Red Sox fans...Big game tonight. If we win tonight then we take over first place. Did you watch last nights game? How about all those homeruns? I'm ready to see that again tonight. I love baseball season when we get close to the playoffs, especially when the Red Sox are having a good year. Game time in 10 minutes.

Wow, the first week of school is over. Anyone else tired? It was a short week and I am so tired. I'm ready to go to bed for the night and it is only 6:30. This happens to me every year. My body is so used to being relaxed all the time and now I am on the go from 5:45am until this time at night. I shouldn't be complaining because most teenagers, if they are anything like my children, are on the go more than me. My daughter gets off the school bus at 3:00, does homework, eats dinner and is back at school for color guard by 5pm. She gets home from that at 9pm and goes back to homework. Hopefully is asleep by 11:00 only to get up at 6am and start all over again. Thank goodness the youth have so much energy. I need a little energy myself right now to go outside and pick up all the small items that may blow away when the storm Hanna comes through this area tomorrow. One thing you may not know about me is that I love the weather. I watch the weather channel for fun and I check www.weather.com at least twice a day. It is more like twice every hour when there is a storm coming. Weather has many connections with math so I guess it makes sense that I am fascinated with it. I wonder what things fascinate my students? Why don't you let me know.
