I’m excited! I know you love maths as much as I do. As your mathematics teacher for 2008, I hope that your study of mathematics will do as much for you as it has for me! So here we go!
To recap what you already know:
1. You should already have followed the instructions in the Preferred Learning Styles post of 25/11. All but one of you has so well done! Have you subscribed to the RSS feed for this blog though? If you did you will have received immediate notification that this post was made. That is the whole point of RSS feeds.
2. You should have installed the SmartBoard software on your home computer (otherwise you will not be able to open the files I have placed on the Specialist Maths Wiki for you to work through).
3. You should go to the Specialist Maths Wiki and download the files in the section called Basic Tools. Remember you will have to log in to the Wiki as this is a private Wiki space.
4. In mid January I will post the solutions to the work on the Wiki for you to download. I will also post your first assignment which is due on the first lesson of 2008. (no excuses!)
This will give us an excellent start to what will be a busy but satisfying year for us all. I’m really looking forward to working with you as a group. email me if you have any issues. You can also post to this blog. 🙂
