"Be it at a conference, or during a company meeting, or in your car trying to persuade the cop not to ticket you for going three times the speed limit while streaming an episode of The Maury Povich Show on your iPad, talking in front of other people can be an intimidating experience."
"The method of completing the square can be looked upon as a method which visualizes
a quadratic equation as an incomplete square, and in the process of completing
that square, you are able to solve the quadratic equation. In the following example,
the quadratic equation x2 + 2x - 3 = 0 is visualized as an incomplete
square. In the process of completing the square, the quadratic equation is factored
to a simple form, which can be easily solved for 'x'.
"It can be intimidating (and expensive) to find professional financial planners these days, but understanding your budget is an absolute necessity.
For those who have nervously pondered how to get economic service on a dime, here are three great sites that offer financial advice, such as how to manage your budget and where to invest your money. Move over Wall Street, the Internet is the new financial frontier.
"I have recently given up on using Visual Studio for Windows editing. See, PHP isn't really important as I have hardly any pages that use it, but in VS, if it smells PHP then it won't treat it as HTML and thus will all be plainly formatted.. so..

"This year, I finally got around to updating the template to reflect Facebook's current look. Click here to download the new template for PowerPoint 2010. No, it doesn't have the timeline interface (I'm not using it yet on my own personal Facebook page, so I don't feel comfortable enough trying to recreate it), but otherwise it reflects many of the recent design changes. It is hyperlinked, so when you're in "View Show" mode, you can click on "Wall," "Info," and "Pictures," and go directly to those parts of the PowerPoint - making it behaving like a traditional Facebook page. "
t if they are good slides, they will be of little use without you. Instead of a copy of your PowerPoint slide
"MC2 STEM High School is a year round, project-based STEM school intent on preparing students for college and successful careers in STEM fields. However, our capstone projects don’t just appear out of thin air. Teachers, administrators, partners, and students work together during weekly planning meetings and a one-week Professional Development Institute (PDI) to develop rich, engaging, transdisciplinary hands-on capstones.
Capstone Design is a four-phase approach influenced by the Understanding by Design approach (Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe). All parts of the Capstone Design Process are founded on four key concepts of MC2STEM’s pedagogy: Transdisciplinary Project-Based Learning, STEM Education, Community "
"Math is fun, right? And very applicable to the ‘real world’, despite what all of those people who say they never use algebra – ever- tell you. But we all know it deep down: math and physics rule our lives. Artist Grant Snider knows it, too. He created this awesome graphic that shows functions as they apply to an awesome part of real life: amusement park rides.
Next time you’re thinking that the lesson that you need to present to your class doesn’t have a ton of real-life relevance, think again. Even cosines and inverse cosines show up when you’re not looking!
"These are an interesting collection of maps that may have you looking at our planet in a completely different way!
