A triple threat? Well, here’s a three-liner which can’t be meaningfully rearranged into haiku, despite having the total of 17 syllables.
Applied Contemporary Mathematics.
For the first time in my teaching career, I have three distinct preps. When I was at Stout, I had at most two distinct preps per semester: two Calculus I and one Precalculus in the fall, and two Precalculus and two College Algebra in the spring.
Last fall, I had two Applied Contemporary Math and one Calculus I.
This time, I have one prep for each of the three classes mentioned in the short lines above.
This is both good and bad news.
The good news: I have already prepped the Calculus and Applied, so theoretically the preparations for those lectures should be shorter. Particularly, this should be true for Applied since I also rearranged it in the J-term.
Nevertheless, I still had a late night of work. It may take some time, but I know I will figure it out!
I’m wondering if I should typeset the “Best-Of” my lecture notes at the beginning of the summer, and print those off as templates for next year. This might be helpful, especially since I’ll get another new prep in the fall with Differential Equations. (I am really excited for that one!)
