February Vacation

Vacation is over, I am a little sad about that, but only 8 more weeks and we have another school vacation. I had a good break. I did a little bit of school work but I made sure to give myself plenty of "fun" time. I spent one day at Wrentham outlets spoiling myself. I picked a day that was sunny and pretty warm so I could enjoy walking around. I spent one day down the cape exploring old country stores. My favorite thing found in these stores were the signs. I laughed so hard reading them. These were a few of my favorites.

And I enjoyed a Norton hockey game and a boys basketball game. Now time to go back to school,

Field Trip Time

I am a teacher that loves to take her kids on field trips. I wish there were more places I could bring high school math classes. A favorite trip at school is math day at Six Flags and it's time to start planning that trip. I love making the video I show to classes to introduce the field trip where I include lots of pictures from past trips. I plan to spend this vacation week making that video. The hardest part is picking the songs to go in the video. I usually use the song from the six flags commercials but I am getting sick of that song. Anyone have any suggestions?

October Sky

My Advanced Math Topics class is watching the movie "October Sky" and studying the world of quadratics and trigonometry applications. This movie is such a great example of how determination and hard work can pay off. I hope that in addition to learning the math from the movie my students also get the message about how hard work will help them go further in life. Never give up.
