Class Observation

It went pretty well.

Fewer students brought laptops than I had expected. But the activity worked ok with pencil and paper. And most students stayed on task during the groupwork.

And it's always a good thing to be observed on a day that you cover material that is mathematically engaging for both gen-ed freshmen and for the full professor who is doing the observation. (The Art Gallery Theorem.)

I finished 3 minutes early, though. Bah.

Glad that's over. I think I'll go home and sit on my porch and knit.
