Going to Texas: I will be going to Texas for the two-year college conference. I'm looking forward to seeing some of my friends and colleagues there. It is always a good conference, and this year, it is in person. If you are also going, stop by our booth XYZ Textbooks and XYZ Homework and say hello.
Tap Dancing: As some of you know, I started taking tap dancing lessons around the time I turned 70. I was making some progress and then Covid started, so no in-person classes. I tried to keep it up on my own, but without a class to go to, I just fell behind. The good new is, I just joined an online tap community, Taptopia, and I think it is going to be a great experience. I will keep you posted and maybe even share a video or two!
Welcome to my Website
Thank you to everyone who attended one of my webinars this week. It is a different format for me and so I am getting more proficient at using Zoom as I do more of them. I plan to do as many of my presentations online as I can in the next few weeks. I will always post them on this site on my blog and presentations pages. I will also post them on LinkedIn.
If you are teaching, I hope all of you will give yourself permission to use five minutes of any class session to share the things you find interesting in, and around, mathematics.
Thanks also to the wonderful people who showed up on a cold Sunday night at Congregation Beth David to hear about Islam and mathematics. It was one of the best groups I have had at a presentation. Thank you for all the kind words and your willingness to consider a different look at the Middle East.
You can download the slides from any of my presentations by clicking on the Presentations button. If you would like to see some of my blog posts, just click on the Blog button.
I started my own publishing company, XYZ Textbooks, in 2010 with the goal of lowering the price students pay for developmental mathematics textbooks (link below). We are the only Ed Tech publishing company with an owner that has over 30 years of experience teaching developmental mathematics in college. As you would expect, the success of the developmental math student is the foundation on which we build our eBooks, textbooks, and accompanying materials.
Also, we have redesigned our sister site, MathTV.com, where we have thousands of free videos covering topics from basic mathematics through calculus. Not only is the design new, but we have added some new features as well. Click on the link below to see for yourself.
And finally, I am happy to report that my YouTube channel has passed the 9,000,000 view mark.
I hope you enjoy my site.
Each Corequisite eBook is Free at XYZ Textbooks. Click on a cover to see the eBook.
We have put all our bootcamp courses on hold for the time being. If you would like us to open them up again, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
