This is my 300th post and I’m feeling all nostalgic. Here are some of the popular threads that have appeared on my blog over the last few years. If you’ve missed them, now’s your chance to check them out:
- Posts about the new Microsoft Equation Editor: I’m a huge fan of the new equation editor in Microsoft Office and I’ve posted numerous times about its features, the first one here. I didn’t get it all out of my system and had to say more here. Many people complain that Cambria Math is the only available font, so I pointed you to other math fonts and work-arounds. I’m pretty handy with LaTeX, too, so I did a comparison in this post.
- For some reason a lot of people find this post about TI-Emulators and this post is linked from a lot of teacher course pages.
- Philosophical posts about education: Why Calculus still belongs at the top, Patient problem solving, In defense of Calculus, One thing that makes my class unique
- The definition of trapezoids. Need I say more?
- Misconceptions: PEMDAS problems, Do irrational roots come in pairs?, Asymptote misconceptions
- Rants: Rationalization Rant, Teaching domain and range incorrectly
- Visitors to our school: Glen Whitney, James Tanton, Matthew Wright
- Some of my favorite resources I’ve created: Halloween Calculus Worksheet, Challenge Problems, Guess who!, Theory of Knowledge Lecture
- And of course, my Random Walk Mural that just went up in the back of my classroom this summer! Check out the link for a video documentary about how it was made.
Thanks for randomly walking with me over these last few years (though, some say it’s a “drunken walk” 🙂 ). Either way, I’ll raise a glass to another 300 posts!
