I am updating this from Morris Library. I came here because my Roy and Rohit were away. I spend the morning visiting Fuzzy's, Palace Pizzeria, Yellow moon and Russel hill. Did bump into two of my students Lakyn and Monika. At Morris I looked at several books. Books by Haword Eves on Mathematical Circles was interesting and I also looked at the other John Derbyshire book.

Bucky's talk

Yesterday I went to Bucky's story enacted by one person. I haven't read Bucky's book but its surprising so many of his die hard fan get stumped when asked about the same question. Seems like being a fan of Buky is kind of a fashion statement. Anyway in spite of the haphazard and unprepared struggling performance he was able to convey some information about Bucky's life. He should have organized it logically and instead of trying to impress audience with technical vocabulary which many times he himself was seen to be struggling he could have given the core ideas and inspiration which made Bucky the man he became.

I just came across the wikiversity. Seems that this program has been going on for a while but hasn't taken off fully yet. I did find this website for flash cards on some of the math I am interested.

Update from Library

I am updating this from Morris Library. I spent a good 4 hrs reading several books. Mainly John Derbyshire's Prime Obsession and Pearls of Discrete Mathematics by Martin Erickson. The rest of the day was spent doing Job search.

Day so far

Its 16:08 and I am here at John A Logan library. It was a good day, I attended the tutor conference today. The guest speaker was phenomenal and in spite of a gruelling 1 and half hr talk. He pretty much was able to hold the audience. It was a motivational talk and it very much served its purpose. The 2nd half was about learning skills and I had to cut short that one to attend my Piano Class which went pretty well.

I have an evening business calculus class to teach which will finish at 20 hrs. So I am utilizing this time to do my applications.
