Hmmm… This “Laronn” kid sounds pretty smart. At least he is getting the bigger picture. Kids these days are so diverse in their maturity that its hard to find the ones that can really appreciate the extraordinary amount of time put into this.

My son watches Attack of the Show, a G4 TV show. (He’ll be impressed that I admitted watching it on a blog comment.) They interviewed two of the band members on Tuesday and it’s worth watching to talk with your students about how much time and effort went into it. Wow.

BTW, I just stumbled upon your blog and found it amazing. You sure write alot, and I have four years of posts to catch up on, but what I’ve read so far is amazing. I’m studying math sciences with the intent of teaching… I was afraid of teaching high school math and though I’d work my way to a college class, ASAP, but reading what you write gives me hope.
