Tales from Monday

- Sick. Losing my voice. Teaching lecture hall calculus with no voice is a challenge.

- At the beginning of class today, I showed the students the exam with the details blacked out CIA-style. At the end of class some students who showed up late asked to see the exam. No. (It's the first exam in calculus. Limits and derivatives.)

- Emailed the stats prof with a question about a homework problem that is due Thursday. He says that he'll do it in class tomorrow. Win-win-win. As it is an even problem, I can not back-solve it from the answer in the back of the book.

- Stats book has answers to the odds in the back! So I run some sort of test with the software, see if I recognize any numbers, and then write up clear responses based on sound statistical and mathematical techniques. And I include more decimal places than the back of the book.

- Worksheet today in the afternoon class, as I don't have to talk as much if they do a worksheet.

- Talked to a science teacher on the phone today to get more insight about a few of the applicants. I think I might be calling more science teachers once I can talk again. My pile is down to a size that I am comfortable with.

- Looks like I will be spending spring break in Ithaca, NY.
