Saturday is my math talk; last night I finished the slides and wrote up a worksheet. Things look pretty good – tonight I plan to do a trial runthrough and make some changes to the worksheet. (I’ll post all this stuff when it’s done for posterity’s sake…) At this point, I’ve spent probably 8 hours preparing for my 1.5 hour talk (which includes the students working on the worksheet) and I expect that’ll rise to 10 hours of preparation by the time this is over. How do you teachers do it? This is crazy. I’m really looking forward to having my evenings back…(not that it isn’t kinda fun preparing, but it’s getting a little old)
Making some progress on my annoying bug at work. No longer freaked out about teeth. The week is looking up!

Five Physics Lessons for Obama – good stuff in here. I think nuclear power is a pretty good way to go, assuming it’s managed well.
