So, 1:20 I unboxed it, pics to come. Now to try to install software. Okay, here’s what I get trying to type it in — the url is something else. Let’s try with fewer typos? (it turned into scanmaker, not scanmarker — they prob’ly should have bought that one and redirected. next try? 404, file […]

So it really looks like I will have several sessions with oh, a solid hour or so with some young adults … to boost their math confidence and skills. (They’ll also work on reading but we’ve got Reading Plus for that. We *don’t* have Modumath any more 😦 😦 ) The program they’re in is […]

Krannert has vax requirement, don’t know about masking — but we’re still rolling about 20% positivity on […]

A *little* less today maybe? Pomodoro is my friend. It took 10 minutes to make and send an .mp4 to a student with an explanation of a word problem that was a basic “read it and find that on the chart” thing. The next one is oh, 4 times as complicated (if every layer is […]

Got an email from yaymath.org — a moderately pithy thing 😉 so I went to the site and oh! That might be a good model for an “online course for other people to use.” They charge for it (basically 300 bucks for 3 courses so if you were a teacher, that’s meeting a lot of […]

First a story! Yesterday I waited for the bus inside, and let a driver in (this is the end of several routes and it’s got indoor bathrooms!) because the unlocked door is around the corner. My bus arrived and a young man stepped off and was walking my way so I told him the unlocked […]

So, yes, on teams I’m noting that I know my place and don’t own anything, and referred to a “Three DFY day!” standing for Daily F* Y* which is, I’m sure, what gets the “I should behave professionally” comment on that eval. Guess what 😛 When I’m just not included in permissions for anything, not […]

Okay, I prob’ly should have taken that tack from the get-go, but I called with “can’t I give you money and have you update things?” It got stuck at “oops, we can’t update payment method from here” and of course I don’t actually have access to the account and then… I didn’t know the PIN […]
