I’m taking a grade/prep retreat this weekend. That means I will be holing up tonight and most of Saturday to hack away at the grading backlog and try to push ahead a little to get courses ready for this week. Lately, I’ve been in the very uncomfortable position of having to finish up preparations for my 9:00 class sometime around 8:45. As the week after next is Spring Break for us, I hope to get caught up grading this weekend and get the next week planned out, so I can take all of next week to get the post-break class days planned out.
Also this weekend, actually today, I’m taking a team of three students to the Indiana Collegiate Mathematics Competition (a.k.a. “the friendly competition”). As far as anybody can tell, my college has never fielded a team in this competition. I’m psyched about it, since the three students forming the team are really three of our best, and so we might have a shot at placing.
So things will be hopping, but blogging may be light.
