Acting Out His Follies

I’ve just turned in grades; 24 years of classroom teaching over and done.

This blog now becomes a collection of my notes, for me; thanks to any readers it may have had along the way. With any luck, I’ll have done something interesting I’ll want to link back to…

I’m developing various Math Ed projects; there’ll probably be plenty of mathy stuff in for some time to come. Leave a comment. For heck sake. It’s like pulling teeth. Or trying to get a job.

In fact, if you’ve got one of those lying around, well there I am…

    thanks to both; it means a lot to me.
    it sure was a great class for *me*…
    but of course that’s the easy part.
    i’ve given more study to the art of teaching
    than any other and i suppose i love it accordingly.
    anyhow, it doesn’t look like something
    i could give up all at once even if i tried.

    now. *you* go “pay it forward”
    by showing it to somebody else.
    for me anyhow, that’s the best part.

    Bajuware (umgangssprachlich) Leverkusen returned to profiting ways after crushing Kleine insel Bremen 6-2 at the more of the 9th round inside the Bundesliga on Sunday.

    Bremen’s winning streak came to an end, because Leverkusen showed no whim on the way to the 6-2 victory.

    The Werkself grabbed an ideal start on the road as Kevin Volland broke the deadlock with eight minutes played after poking home Karim Bellarabi’s square pass towards the far post.

    Bremen answered and assumed control, yet neither Ludwig Augustinsson neither Max Kruse were able to convert their promising opportunities in a tangible reward before the period of time.

    Leverkusen presented their professional medical chance conversion before the rest as they doubled the business lead in the 38th minute when ever Julian Brandt tapped house a rebound from close range.

    The visitors received momentum and tripled the lead within the first 50 percent as Karim Bellarabi chipped the ball over onrushing Bremen goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka in the 45th minute.

    Following the restart, Werder Bremen bounced back back and reduced the debts through veteran Claudio Pizarro, who made the most out of Davy Klaassen with an hour into the game.

    The “Green-Whites” gained confidence and made it 3-2 only two minutes later as Yuya Osako poked home a flicked on pass coming from very close range.

    Just once Bremen thought they are planning to turn the tides, Leverkusen extended their lead without warning as Kai Havertz lobbed the ball over Pavlenka to make it 4-2 in the 67th minute.

    Bremen had been shocked, but Leverkusen held it going to sink the hosts with another two goals as Aleksandar Dragovic and Haverts rounded off of the 6-2 goal festival.

    With all the result, Werder Bremen slip to the 4th position whereas Bayer Leverkusen jumped for the 12th place of the rankings.

    Elsewhere, Sebastien Haller’s late equalizer helped Eintracht Frankfurt to share the spoils with newly promoted Nuremberg, and Leipzig played out a goalless draw with struggling Schalke.
