The trig gears were grinding clumsily today. Disappointing after a smooth(ish) and ambitious start. My problem is two-fold and self-contradictory. I both over- and under-estimated my students. In the same lesson. Using the very same slides. Then I grew impatient.
Maybe I oughta get myself a ukelele (channeling Sarcasymptote) to help us all chill out a bit.
I actually had a great time in Algebra II, working with students, bringing the math out, and having a laugh, maybe because I was working with students I’ve already taught. But the trig flop is winning the battle for preeminence in my thoughts.
