High School Progress Teams

Yesterday I spent the day at Copper Hills high school at the High School Progress Team meetings. I have been involved in these three-time-a-year

meetings for the past three years, and, although I don't like to leave

my classroom in the hands of a substitute teacher, they are really


Every high… Continue

New Teacher Training, Day 2

Yesterday, we met with our new staff for the second time this year, but

really it was the first time to get a hold of them after their first

impressions of the classroom have sunken in. And rather than focus

solely on what they were experiencing and how they are dealing with it,

recently revamped to be more of a reflective… Continue

birthday the fourth

Previously on the birthday problem .........................

i found out that nPr = n!/(n-r)!

can I use this, well I have 2 objects, eric and noddy, and 4 days to select their birthdays, so I suppose those would be the distinct objects, although distinct to me means different and I want to find out the same days.Anyway let's try it, n =4 and r = 2…

Read this, please: nuestras lenguas están bien vivas...

Probablemente muchos de Uds. hayan escuchado o leido acerca de esta presentación, en la que el escritor hace un lúcido recorrido por la historia de nuestra lengua para concluir, no sin ironía, que la pretendida pureza del idioma no es…
