Day One, Part I

One down, two to go. Every person on my roll for my first section of Calc I was in attendance, and no one not on my roll was there. This has got to be a first.

They were lively, fun, and relaxed. They took the focused freewrite with which I started things off in stride. They got into groups with no hesitation, and they showed no trepidation about coming up to the board. They'll be great.

It's going to be a good semester!

My cousin, an Electrical Engineer, told me that 8 am Calculus class would be a combination of terror and boredom. I wouldn't say I was bored, but making us give a presentation in front of the class on the second day? Ahhh, there's the terror.
