About Jim

Most of the useful math (especially geometry) I know, I learned on the job. I built piers on the river, houses and offshore housing before becoming a teacher. Modern students have issues with attention. Actually we all do. Therefore a variety to lessons is essential. Some instruction and some practice. Tools such as rulers, compasses, protractors and graphing calculators help motivate and enhance learning. It also helps motivate students if they know how a skill is used in real life.
