I made a powerpoint for my Algebra 2 class to use in class today... it worked pretty well, and I think I may do this on a more regular basis!

Here's the end result:

Any thoughts?

40 more days. Actually, 39 now. I think this is do-able!

It's crazy to think that Spring Break is already over and we're on the last leg of the race that is our school year. It seriously feels like last week that we started (in the nasty heat of August) and now it's April!

I started teaching my Integrated Math II and Algebra II classes again today - took them over from my student teacher. I'm checking with all of my fellow math teachers at school to see when he can get in their rooms in the next couple of weeks to observe them running their classes. I'm probably easing him out a little too early, but it was an easy time to make that break (since last week was spring break) and I definitely want to get him watching some other people and getting some tips.

Our last PLP Elluminate session is on Wednesday night - the time slot that we're doing is from 4:30 to 6:30, but unfortunately my son has t-ball practice from 4:30 - 6. Hmm. I'd planned on just doing the later session (from 8 - 10 PM) but because the session is really a report of how and what our team is doing, waiting wouldn't do much good. Maybe I'll just take the boy to practice a little late so I can jump in with my team as soon as possible. Guess that's still something that needs to be worked out!
