Math all the time!
Starting this week, I am back to teaching math full-time at RHS for a week or two (or three or...). One of the teachers has a mom back East who is dying so she may be back there with her until after the funeral. Since I taught math for them a few months last year, they felt pretty comfortable having me teach again. This time it is only 2 different classes instead of 3 (yay! - less prep). I'm teaching Secondary Math 2 and College Prep Math so my students are either sophomores or seniors. My sophomores are doings conics: circles and parabolas. (Not my fave!) Seniors are doing quadratic equations and factoring (super easy!).
Teaching these classes alone is more math than I usually do on a daily basis but for some reason, this week both of my girls have needed a lot of help on their math homework. I have spent a couple hours EVERY night doing more math! At least Shanley's is exactly what I am teaching my sophomores at school. McKayla's, on the other hand, is statistics and that really taxes my brain. I haven't done much statistics since college. Loved it then but don't remember it too well.
Haven't had much time for anything but math this week.
