To anyone looking at this blog I have abandoned my goal after less than half a year. But like an unknown function, just checking the endpoints will not tell you what is happening along the way. Therefore, I am a happy to record that I have been doing some Calculus behind the scenes.
On July 24, I receive a comment on this blog saying this:
You might be interested in https://mooculus.osu.edu/I followed the link and was blown away by what I saw. It was just the course I needed and I could do it through Coursera, the same platform I took my pre-calculus course.
The course is from Ohio State University and it features,I kid you not, the coolest professors I have ever met: Dr. Bart Snapp and Dr. Jim Fowler. Their lecture videos are short, clear and, more times than not, hilarious. I find it increadibly comforting to watch a video on a frustrating difficult topic that is explained with such weird, electric enthusiasm. I particularly enjoy Dr. Fowler's lectures, which are the majority, he is so intense and smart and lives math!
I have returned to this blog through a series of fortunate events. In the intervening time, I started taking a certification course in online teaching. I am on my sixth and next to last week. The assigment for this week: to create a blog or continue one that is already created. So here I am, I had planned to return in the middle of December to wrap it up but this feels better. It feels like destiny.
By the way, I just realized that the person who had left me the comment of July 24, was Dr. Jim Fowler.
Woah. Mind. Blown. Thanks, Professor.
Let me know what you think in the comments.
