MediaWiki, LaTeX and teTeX

Spent the greater part of the day getting matrices and \mathbb to work on my FreeBSD/MediaWiki install.

The issue is with amsfonts. I installed the latex port, but this does not include amsfonts. Deinstalled and installed teTeX, restarted apache and voila I now have vectors, matrices, and more.

Visit: Maths to see some matrices and \mathbb's

I posted what I did in some detail to:…

Updated Maths

I have updated the Maths text to include a section on completing the square; some rearranging has occurred. And I added some nice graphs; some of the graphs need to be replaced with "more professional" looking graphs.

Does anybody know of a program for Linux or Mac where I can put multiple graphs, label points, put custom labels on the x and y-axis, and export as *.png files?

I am also going to try and make… Continue

Dr. Michio Kaku agreed to do a free webinar for both teachers and students at noon EST on December 17th

Dr. Michio Kaku agreed to do a free webinar for both teachers and students at noon EST on December 17th. It's intended for teachers to share with students and Michio is a great speaker to get people excited about science given how he relates complex subjects to what they see on TV and in movies, I think there's be a ton of classes that'd be interested in it. The registration link is at or you can read more about him at… Continue

Using Web Based Technology to Breathe Life into Science Lessons with Visual Arts

I found that most of my students had a difficult time looking at a picture or diagram of a science concept in a textbook and understanding what the image is depicting. This is especially important in science, because many science concepts are learned as cycles or circles.

Pictures in science textbooks do not address multiple learning styles of students; they are designed primarily for visual/spatial learners.

I found it was easier to address more learning styles… Continue

Using Web-Based Resouces in Science Investigations

I found during my teaching middle school science and working with inservice teachers, students typically had better science fair projects when they used web-based real world data bases or collaborated with students around the country.

Using Online Resources

Students used online resources to support presentations PowerPoint presentations, spreadsheet(s) for data, and word processing for sharing findings of their science fair… Continue

A lot of folks in our district like Google Earth, and now it's augmented with Google Sky. There's an older tool that I've shown to some teachers in the past that I also think is still worthwhile, called Celestia. It's a free download for Mac, Windows, and Linux users.

I've made an instructional video introducing the software; kind of a "try before you buy" experience to see if you want to invest the time.… Continue
