I Did It Again

As you know if you have read this post, radical signs and I do not get along.  I am at the same point in the term and my students are again having trouble with simplifying \sqrt{x^17}.  The class didn’t go well.  I have just got to teach my students how to convert from improper to proper fractions.  I am going to go to my notes and rewrite that section right now.  Mea culpa.

I am a sixty-five year old math instructor at Southern Oregon University. I taught at the College of the Siskiyous in Weed California for twenty-six years. Prior to that I worked as a computer programmer, carpenter and in various other jobs. I graduated from Rice University in 1967 and have a MS in Operations Research from Stanford. In the past I have hand-built a stone house and taken long solo bicycle tours. Now I ride my mountain bike and play golf for recreation.
