Blog Guide

This is an annotated table of contents for the blog. The pages here contain links to blog posts on the units in the current Course and Exam Description and other categories. The tabs will take you to these pages:

Before Calculus – posts on topics taught in school math before calculus. “Precalculus” usually refers to the one course immediately before calculus; these links go back further than that. They are topics and ideas that I hope students have learned on their way to calculus.

Pedagogy – Posts on teaching, testing, grading, and scoring.  

Graphing Calculator Use – What students need to know how to do for the exam and ideas for using calculators to help with different topics.
