This is a post related to how I plan to conduct my [Math 90] TA sessions. I would like to use this space as a supplement to the class work. Each Tuesday night, after my recitations, I will post my worksheets and their solutions under a new page. That page will serve as a comment-forum for for any questions students may have over that week. I will answer any comments posted here periodically throughout the week. It is also possible I may post additional, supplementary materials here if I feel it necessary.

Now I ask that my students please do the following:Below, you’ll see a comment form. Write a comment using your name (this will be displayed by each comment you make), your email address (this is not displayed publicly), and a comment. Write anything you’d like.If you need a prompt, write what you want to get out of this course, or ask me a question.

You can write mathy things on this forum using the $latex \LaTeX$ formatting language. A bit more on that here, except that to product inline formulas with $latex \$ \text{latex (code)} \$ $ (dollar sign, the word latex, the code, followed by a dollar sign). For example, we’ll be doing things like $latex \displaystyle \int_0^1 x^2 dx$ and $latex \displaystyle \sum_{n = 1}^N \left( \frac{1}{N}\right)f\left( \frac{n}{N}\right)$ in this course.

I look forward to seeing all of you in class. Please note that it will always be easy to check out my [Math 90] posthead by clicking on Math 90 in my pages menu at the top left, or by remembering that link. There will be links to the different pages from the posthead, once there are different pages to link to.

This is a sample comment so that you know what’s visible, from a very reliable poster named “David Lowry’s Sample Post.” Note that your email is hidden, but your name visible.

The important bit is that I moderate the comments on this blog, but I will give permissions to those who post here and are in my class. I’ll see you all on Tuesday.

I am the first!

Hello! Looking forward to a lovely semester of calculus!

Hi David! Do you listen to math rock?

Sometimes. I do like some Toe. On the other hand, I also don’t mind rocking out a bit with math.

Here is a (slightly embarrassing, maybe) pair of videos of me singing one of the duets from Calculus: The Musical, to several math competition competitors.

(to some other tune)

beautiful morning for calculus

I am so excited to learn all about derivatives and integrals! I hope we get to learn cool real life applications that apply to problems with derivatives and integrals!

yay math!

I <3 calculs!

Late post!

But enjoying Calculus class so far! :)
