I’ve decided to write a book. Actually no. I’ve decided to compile all of my lessons into a book. The entirety of my lessons are not up on here (or hardly on TPT). I didn’t write these lessons or work pages because I thought there weren’t enough books out there, but because the book that my school issued me was so horrendous that I felt I needed to write my own lessons from scratch. Now I’m just going to compile all of these lessons into a single book with practice problems and selected answers. I need to go over everything with a fine tooth comb and make sure there are no errors. I also want to make all of the graphics in TikZ/PGF, which I haven’t learned until recently.
I’ll keep everybody posted with my progress. Hopefully it won’t take too long.

Last night I asked my karate instructor, an attorney for 35 years, if he had ever used the quadratic formula in his professional career. His answer surprised me a bit. He said, “No, but I also took many years of French, and I never had to use that either.” Continue reading
I love LaTeX and how it can write beautiful math script. You can find a link to Texmaker, the LaTeX editor that I use in the “Random Resources” section. Let’s see how beautiful these can be!
Hello World! This is the first post for Wolf Math. I am very excited to launch this new website that will be supplementing (adding up to 180º) my math class!
