Web Resources Design: The high school mathematics resources created over the last two years have a different design. The dynamic interactive activities typically have a visual and symbolic output with a means to change length/parameters. For the units completed, I have tried to develop a comprehensive, concise set of math notes with applets that the reader to understand/remember the concepts and enhance their math intuition for real life applications. For most of these resources I want the user to start exploring the applet to discover as much of the pattern themselves, then use the notes on the left to fill in the rest of the pattern.

I am using my own invention, CET (Closed Eyes Test) to check the effectiveness of the resources. If the resource passes CET, I can still see/interact with the applet with my eyes closed. If you are interested, the following are units that I am most excited about:

Transformations      Logarithms      Conics      Trigonometry      Circles      Quadratics      Relations

Philosophy:  I believe families have the right to educate their children at home and school boards have a duty to support this decision.

Interests:  I enjoy developing on-line learning and teaching tools.  I have been developing Flash resources for several years. My actionscript skills have increased dramatically.

Years of Teaching:  I have taught in Alberta for 34 years.

My Role at Argyll Centre 2010-2011:  In the past, I retired in June, 2010. I am currently teaching high school math half time (Math 24, Math 20 Applied, Math 20 Pure, Math 30 Applied, Math 30 Pure, and Math 31).

The Macromedia Flash resources that I have developed have been tested in Microsoft Internet Explorer. The icon provided will link you to the latest browser update.

The Macromedia® Flash™ 6 Plugin is required in order to view many of the multimedia segments. If you cannot see the animation on the left, click on the Flash Player icon to download the plugin.
