WELCOME TO THE WEB VERSION OF THE MATH SHACK!
No one is a failure who has friends.
You really have a wonderful life!
Hope is a good thing.
Maybe, the best of things.
What are you hoping for that is really grand, noble, and significant?
If there is no struggle, then there is no progress.
I Believe every student can learn Geometry and Statistics. These are alive, more often used than we realize, and important areas of study.
That is why I teach them.
It will be a CHALLENGE. It will require consistency and perserverance. But you can do it. Yes, even if your parents gifted you "bad math genes".
There is no great satisfaction from doing that which is easy.
The reward for having done something difficult, is having done it.
I think, therefore I am.
Welcome to Oak Park High School 2012-13!
This year, in all likelihood, will be a memorably great time in your life.
We will work very hard in Statistics and Geometry. We will stretch and grow each class meeting. Expect lots of material to be covered daily. Know that we will have homework nearly every day. Start it early (11pm the eve before is not early)
I have high expectations for these genuinely valuable courses of study. Welcome the struggle
Life (and mathematics) is difficult. As soon as we realize that, and come to expect life to be hard,...it tends to get a little easier.
