Today, our last homework assignment of the year was due! For the rest of the year we have APs and projects, which means no more written problem sets (thanks god, I hate correcting homework). Here is a note from a student who has been really sad about all the lasts no matter how banal they are. She said “Cheers to the first time I ever do math homework in my life.” I feel like every year I'm getting better and better at this teaching gig, and one of things I think I did better this year than any other year was in the non-Calculus-student-skills arena. We did a lot of metacognition, talked a lot about how to study and I hammered in some routines. I still have to improve here though because this jank is so important!
