Noteworthy Events

  1. Went to visit some of my construction.

  2. Watched Primer on DVD. A brilliant intellectual thriller? Or a "willfully pretentious exercise in obfuscation"? Watch it yourself and decide.

  3. Brief and non-cataclysmic email conversation with the guy who probably wants to sleep with me.

  4. Made almost two dozen Keynote slides for Monday's class. Now I just need to grade infinity homework and plan a calculus lecture on substitution. When I took calculus we were never formally taught "u-substitution," so I really have no model of how to teach it. We were told: Look for something that looks like the result of the chain rule and fuss with it until it works.
