Blog Images

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.

and Create an Animated Cat:

or MagicWidgets T-Shirt Maker:tshirt_med

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……

    Hi Jeff,

    This is a cute post that I’m delighted to have run across. I am an image junkie too. I found this great site that pulls RSS feeds of web images and they have some fantastic image collections there.

    Anyone can create a collection and since I love food, this morning I created a food collection. If you would like to see it here is the link. http://spectives.com/goodfood

    Well, it was nice visiting your blog I will stop by again soon. I am also a big fan of Diigo and of course maths. Thanks for all of the links.

    Wow, I am impressed! I see I have a long way to go, no wonder I have only had 2 visitors to my blog (and one was my sister). Be prepared to be asked to do some PD on this….
