Julia’s homework for 7/13/11

problem #1

And a hole at -2


Julia Ford homework 7/12/11

1.  My blog name

2. I think that blogging would help my students and parents understand the topics we are covering in class.  Students could also comment on my blog with their specific questions or concerns. I could also post helpful websites for additional study.  If students or parents have smartphones with internet capability, they can still access the blog. I learned that I need to remember more of what I’m supposed to know. I teach 8th grade math, and it’s hard to pull up Calculus and analytic thought beyond what I’ve been teaching.  Problem—a lot of my students do not have access to the internet outside of school.

4. I posted a comment on the calendar Thinkin’ bout’ goin’ home.

5. Dan Meyer’s post.  Some of the images are linked incorrectly at this time, so be sure to download the full archive.
