I submitted my two week notice at work this week as it is finally time to student teach! I’m not sure which classes I’ll be teaching, but I’m excited!
I had to take one final math class this summer, a differential equations class for teachers. It had been over 20 years since I had thought about the reverse product rule or integration by parts…I was struggling to keep up the whole class. Not to mention it was a full course packed into a 5 week session with classes that lasted almost 3 hours.
I’ve been playing around with programming plugins in Minecraft using craftbukkit. I hooked up an expression evaluator and I can now graph equations in Minecraft.
I hope to figure out some cool way to use this in the classroom this fall. Suggestions are welcome.
