Year in Review 2009

I’m about to leave on a five-day mental reboot: no computer, no Internet, no cell phone, and lots of sunshine and pleasure reading.  For the last month I’ve been feeling kind of drained of energy and motivation, and a vacation away from all my high-level thinking and technology obligations sounded like a good idea.

While I was feeling kind of unproductive and slug-like, I began reflecting on what I have done this year.  This is my version of a Year in Review.

Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the 140 blog posts published on this site in the last year. (Wow! That was a LOT of writing!)  You can view collections of some of my favorite posts about general topics, about math, and about Wolfram|Alpha while I am away from the digital world on a vacation mental-reboot in Punta Cana.

    Hi there. Any word on the Algebra Activities? I have not heard or seen anything. Was curious where they were at with the whole thing. Thanks.

    • @Grant As I get information, I am putting it on this page. All the workbooks are copyrighted this year and most are publishing in January. I don’t have a single copy myself yet, but I suspect they will be available very soon now (as 22 of them are now listed on Amazon).
