Each project is ultimately related to a course I am teaching this year. My schedule this year is insane! I have 2 sections of preCalculus for Seniors and 1 section of AP Calculus BC plus 1 section of Calculus Research Lab every other day. In addition to this, I have 1 section of Computer Math and 1 section of AP Computer Science. After school, I meet once every other week with my Computing Independent Study class as well!
I will go nuts unless I think of these preps as 3 Math: preCalculus, Calculus BC, Calculus Research Lab; and 3 Computer: Computer Math, Computer Science A, Computing Independent Study. Organizing myself like this, I feel as if I only have 2 preps! This way of organizing my day comes in handy for Youtube Wednesdays. During my math preps I'll show one video and during my computer preps I'll show a different video. This way students that take both preps, of which I usually have at least a few, don't get bored! In fact, this is a bit atificial, as Computing Independent Study is after school and does not do Youtube Wednesdays. Also, some of the Math classes have aspects of Computing and some of the Computing classes have math content too! So, I think I'll break up my day as 2xpreCalc+Calculus for my math prep and Computer Math+Computer Science+Calculus Research Lab for computing prep.
So, what follows basically amounts to a "note to self." What else is new, this whole blog is just one big memory dump for me! It's a great resource as my memory is so bad....
