I have taken a big dose of truth serum and here are the results:
1. I LOVE IMAGES! If I browse a blog and it doesn’t have any images, videos, slide shows, etc, then I usually don’t add it to diigo, delicious or only2clicks. An exception to this is Math Tales from the Spring. This delightful Maths blog is all text, but Mrs. H tells such charming and interesting stories, that you can’t help but keep reading! Her lasted article is about using IWB’s, which reminded me that I must do a post about using IWB’s in Mathematics classes.
Whenever I need to manipulate images I use the free but excellent program Irfanview. For example, the image below was made using the “create panorama” command. Can you work out its meaning?
2. I have “wasted” a lot of time today browsing the world wide web, instead of mowing lawns, cleaning gutters, etc. I discovered The Newspaper Clipping Generator:
The above text from The Lazy Bloggers Post Generator.
So, like some of my students, I have been “off task”. I am determined though to get back on track this coming week, and post some good solid Mathematical content. Stay tuned……
