Blog is short for weblog (weBLOG). Check here to see the latest information about my site (and, occasionally, about my life in general). It isn't a conventional blog—it just lets you know what I'm currently working on!

I'm working steadily updating my lessons to my new responsive style, but it's reasonably slow going. I'm up to lesson 45 in Algebra I. Moving forward, I suspect I'll average about one lesson per day (at least until I finish Algebra I).

A really important day for me!! After many months (years, actually) of work, I finally have my first responsive web page live: Expressions Versus Sentences. Check it out!!

I've also written up a series of tutorials showing how the responsive page evolved, starting with Lesson 1: Designing a Responsive Web Page (HTML & CSS Only) . Now, to start applying the responsive template to all my lessons and pages!!

A belated welcome to 2022! Since breaking my wrist on Christmas Day 2021 (with wrist surgery on January 5, 2022), I've gotten behind on some things. (Typing isn't very easy with a broken wrist!) Time to catch up...

In January 2022 I discovered that the Bard Prison Initiative is using my Algebra book. I had noticed a large number of books sold (about 60 on the same day), and suspected it was being used for a class. Shortly afterwards, I was contacted by Joy Sebesta (and then Amy Shapiro) who will be teaching the course. Since the inmates don't have internet access, I created a supplement for my non-print algebra lessons for them (and then made it available to all my users). I've also just finished a local version of my Algebra course—no internet required—for the Bard students to use. This is something I've wanted to do for a long time, and I'm glad to have had this ‘prompting’ to finally get it done! Eventually, I hope to make it available to all my users who might benefit from having a non-internet version of my Algebra course.

In early February, I started back to my ‘Alex days’ (taking care of my granddaughter two days each week here at Pebble). The absolute worst part of breaking my wrist was that I had to stop having my days with her for a while!
