Figuring it out

When your life seems like it is out of sorts. I do my problem solving and analytical thinking by setting part time to just think. I do it at home to sort out troubles and discover the best result for all people involved in the problem. Thinking and looking inward is one major part to learning and developing or just being a better person.

Where do you think?

Remember while you are thinking, do onto others as you would have them do onto you.

We will be coming up with multiple operations to solve mathematics problems. We will see if you can find out how many different and creative possiblities there are in math.
There are many.

Can you name one activity that has numbers and is creative... I will give you a moment to think?(look below for the answer)

"Dancing": I called Justin Timberlake, JT as I call him, this weekend (As you all know I use to be his background dancer), and there is bad news. I still can't dance because all my kickin dance moves are copyrighted and closely monitored(sorry people who wanted to see me dance... Music, sports, and games. The list goes on.

8th grade night, it couldn't have been that bad

Last night we had the 8th grade parents over to the high school. After about an hour in the library there were student led tours through the school. The department heads for all the departments were present to present their subject. It was great to see all the different ideas the parents had. The questions were very appopriate especially for the changing times. In fact all the parents I spoke to after the visit said the same thing. This school has really changed from years ago. I didn't teach with the previous administration so I don't think it was that bad. School sometimes is hard work and tough work and that was the case. I think we have a good mixure. Good kids to give the learn, great leaders to give information vital to the kids and we represent the school as one. It is going to be tough at times, but whatever doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.

Picking a mathematician for your third term presentation is not easy. Look for a person you find interesting or you can relate to. I relate to someone like Telsa. No one understood him at the time but he was right about so many ideas.
