Box Beak Reminder

Baseball Legends!
I just returned home from math conference.  Yep, you read that right... Math Conference!  Four days and three nights, thirty-two hours in all.  Working problems, asking questions, talking math.  Fun!  No, seriously, I had a good time.  I came away with a bunch of goodies:
1. handouts, worksheets, activities and many lab ideas in the three ring binder
2. about twenty pages of notes for the new material that I will start teaching in the fall
3. a stack of Calculus books and reference materials
I've been teaching AB Calculus for years, but my high school is branching out and will now offer BC Calculus as well.  My confidence level is starting to build after this past week.  Watch out high school students!
On to other topics that will interest the blogosphere a bit more:
The last box for my 4 box group break arrived while I was away crunching numbers and playing with my calculator.  I've already ripped the other three boxes and each player on the checklists is accounted for.  Complete team sets for all who sign up!   Be sure to check it out!


  1. I'd be interested in any Calculus ideas you might have to share!!

  2. I'd be interested in learning Calculus in the first place. And I'm about 3/4 serious when I say that.

    That said, those industry-type get togethers are always fun even if no one outside of the industry that is meeting would get any enjoyment whatsoever out of it!
