Today's Quote:


I was out with the Honor's classes yesterday touring Dunnellon High School so there are no notes per se. 7th grade classes either took notes or finished their FCA. We will debrief the results today. 6th grades are on the new format where we are going to spend a little more time going over the basics and have a little more structure than I am used to having. I felt this necessary since they are having issues getting focused and following up on their end of the classroom contract.

Brain bender:

Jasmine Fall owns a vacation home in Northern Ontario which has an A shaped roof. One side of the roof faces north, while the other side faces south. The prevailing winds from the north are usually quite strong. The strange thing is that the stronger the north wind blows, the stronger the resulting updraft on the south side of the roof. Therefore, if a rooster was to lay an egg on the peak of the roof during a strong northerly wind, on which side should the egg fall most of the time?
