Last Fall, all Williston students filled out course evaluations. On those evaluations, each student was asked to pick the three words that best describe their math class. Here’s a word cloud made from the submitted words. The larger the word, the more frequently it was mentioned.
I just created a students screencasts page that contains direct links to all of the video playlists I have created for all of the student screencasts my students have created so far this year. The page will be continually updated with new videos as they are put online. Here’s a great recent video created by one of my Algebra 2 students:
A fantastic video of Edward Frenkel, author of Love and Math (a fantastic book!), was just put online that I think is well worth watching.
In the video he answers the question, “Why do people hate mathematics?” along with many others.
What about you? Why do you think people hate mathematics? Let me know in the comments of this post.
A few weeks ago Microsoft came to campus to film a promo video on Williston’s adoption of the Surface Pro and one place they filmed was my BC & Multivariable Calculus class. Lots of footage is from my classroom, including interviews of my students, made it into the promo. Check it out!
Check out what Mr. Matthias‘ robotics students have built. The bots are plotting their own course by following the black curve. Cool stuff, eh?
