Welcome Back!!!!

Welcome to the first day of the 2005-06 school year. This blog will be used during semester I for my Pure Math 30 class.

Some of you had a chance to use the blog last year in our Pure Math 20 class. All of the information that I posted last year is still at this blog if you just navigate backwards using the months on the right hand side of the screen.

In class today I will be explaining the purpose of the blog. For those of you that want to get started now here is a quick explaination. I will be using the blog to post additional resources that are deigned to assist you with the material that we are studying in class. Sometimes the postings will be just pictures and/or text. Most times the postings will contain links to useful websites on the Internet. The whole idea is to give you, my students, more information on the topics we are studying so that you can better understand them and be more successful in your study of mathematics.

Make sure that you comment on my postings using the comment button at the bottom of any post.

To get you started using the blog here is a question. What is a transformation? Once you come up with an answer post it on the blog by using the comment button. I look forward to your responses.

P.S. The picture in this posting is of a waterslide in Penticton that my family and I went to this summer. I know some of you would like to be at the waterslide right now, however, all good things must come to an end!!!!!
