Shirley Said:what are some real life applications of transformations (eg.reflections) on a coordinate system i.e. graphs?
We Answered:When we drill copper panels, which will eventually be routed into printed circuit boards, transformations are used. If a group of holes is difined as a "pattern", that pattern may be translated & repeated many times. The pattern can also be flipped and/or rotated in 90 degree increments.
Lauren Said:Any hints on finding a teaching job in New Jersey?
We Answered:New Jersey is a very tough market to find a job in... South Carolina is a lot les competitive. :)
Sounds like you're motivated and working very hard. And after three years of subbing-- you've definitely EARNED the right to a full-time job. :)
A few hints--
- Be sure your cover letter stands out-- use some bold face and bulleted lists... Maybe even a splash of color in the letterhead.
- Find the schools you want to work at most and send a nice letter directly to the principal.... and attach a resume. When you make direct contact with principals you're more likely to get an interview-- you cannot depend of Human Resource Offices to call you up sometimes, especially when they have tons of applicants. Trust me-- after you've applied, send a letter of interest to the principal. :)
- Follow up on all of your applications... call the HR offices and ask them if they have everything they need.
Here's a link to an eBook that might be helpful to you-- it's "Guide to Gettingthe Teaching Job of Your Dreams"-- http://www.iwantateachingjob.com . It has advice on finding teaching jobs, common teacher interview questions, interview advice, resume and cover letter tips, etc. Maybe the book can help you out.
Best of luck!! And don't become frustrated... your hard work will pay off!
Christopher Said:For parents with middle school kids?
We Answered:no cuz thats lame, i am that kid but still lame, what does the color matter?
Theresa Said:How do i cantroll a loud talking class?
We Answered:I told one of my classes last year that they had three warnings before they got a quiz over the material they were learning in class that day. Every time someone talked, i would write a name on the board. When it got to three, they got a quiz. It worked well, because by seeing whose names were on the board, everyone knew whose fault it was that they had to have a quiz.
