Office Hours - SUMMER 2014

There are no regularly scheduled office hours during the summer quarter. We can talk after class or we can try to find a mutually agreeable time to meet. Please email me to set up an appointment in this case.

Remember that you can get homework help from the PSME Center in Room 4213 of the main Foothill College campus. 


Foothill College Library now has a new resource called Films on Demand, which covers an array of subjects, including Mathematics! Here you will find streaming video demonstrations of, for example, Linear Equations, Quadratic Functions, and applications of Geometry and more. There are also TED Talks on a variety of interesting topics, including African Fractalsby Ron Eglash, A Formula for Changing Math Education by Arthur Benjamin, and even one by Robert Lang (creator of the last week's Google-Doodle honoring Origami) entitled: Idea + Square = Origami.

If you want to share with your class any of these videos, please feel free to, as our license includes public performance rights.
