    Schooooool's out for summer!!!!

    It's finally over. I have just finished my 3rd year teaching high school math in Milwaukee. I had Geometry this year which I loathe. I tentatively found out what I'm teaching next year too, 4 sections of Freshman Algebra and one section of Transition to College Math (its a course for juniors and seniors to get ready for college entrence exams who are not good enough to take Algebra 2.)

    So to all my teacher homies, Tarnok and perhaps others I don't know about, have an excellent summer.

    Mostly, I got into some 3-D stuff (Euler's formula, Surface Area, and Volume) in the last month or so.

    I'm not really a geometry fan either, which is why I like my classes for next year.

    ah this year i had to take geometry and it was horrible! a total waste of time for me. i was like in 6th grade when took these stuff and man i could've had a free instead of that math. algebra is much much better i am glad that you have it for next year :thumbsup:

    Math sucks until you find out that your having not taken calculus forces you to waste 2 weeks of insanity inducing frustration instead of having the answer in a couple of hours. [/voice of experience]

    Just remember kiddies, any day when you don't learn something is a day wasted.

    Geek.
    Anyway, i used to be good at maths, but then gradually i got less and less intersted, and so didnt bother. By the time i left school and went to college, it was my second least favourite subject, only beaten by english litrature.

    psh ok to be honest with you, when in the raell world would you need to know the volume and surface of a circle or a sphere ???

    honestly maths is a waste of time you should really just take something useful like P.E or like smoking on the back field something that will help you in later life :lol:

    Well the Wisconsin state standards say that it is something students must know before they graduate. I have to cover all the standards(or try to) in the given course.

    BTW here are the Wisconsin State Standards for High School Math. Enjoy :lol: :lol: :lol: .

    Such and interesting read! :thumbsup:
