I’m sure I’ve got friends who’s job I know nothing about, so, if you’re interested, let me know what you do (for instance, a large number of you are getting PhDs: what the hell is your thesis about?)
Well, that’s not true. I can do math (we hope).
Late last year, I was asked to teach the university’s discrete mathematics course!
I’m excited. I get a slew of students, a teaching assistant, and pay (mm. more ramen). I picked up a highly recommended book on teaching that I’ve been tearing through.
I’ve been thinking a lot about the the directions this blog should take (considering, well, that I never update it. Part of it will be a teaching blog. There are going to be posts on ideas I’d like to use in my teaching, and how well they worked. I’ve also got some other subjects I’d like to add about. I’m also pondering whether or not I should be using my livejournal for more personal news.
At the very least, you get to expect my rantings and ramblings on teaching (and how good or bad I am at it).
