The Maths For Real Life final is going to go up late--I have an in-class presentation today worth 20% of my grade and the prep is taking longer than I'd thought. But it will go up!

OOC: I Suck

I could have sworn I posted French class this morning. Then I got home and realized I was, in fact, losing my mind. I'm sorry, guys. I have no excuse other than, "Sometimes I suck."

Hey, guys, just a quick heads-up, Maths for Real Life is probably going to be late tomorrow, or may be cancelled. I'm getting on a plane later this evening and will be hopping around airports until Monday morning--then straight for class when I get home. I will try my hardest to get it up, but I'm not making promises.

Hi! Two quick notes on visitors.

Some of y'all have probably been looking at Bucky's username, [ profile] zimniisoldat going, "WTF keyboard smash?" or "WTF sold at Zimnii? Where's Zimnii?" For those of you who haven't been following Ed Brubaker's run on Captain America, Bucky spent the latter half of the twentieth century as an amnesiac Soviet science project/assassin, codenamed Winter Soldier. Zimnii Soldat is Winter Soldier in romanized Russian. And now you know!

Second, and more important for interaction purposes, Jean-Paul Beaubier's sister [ profile] dawnnotdawn is crazy. As in, certifiable. She has schizophrenia/Multiple Personality Disorder, and has two distinct personalities who hate each other's guts: Jeanne-Marie and Aurora. If I refer to her Jeanne-Marie, she is very conservatively dressed, with her hair pulled back in a tight bun, and her Quebecois accent is very pronounced. Jeanne-Marie is very sheltered and conservative and easily offended. If I refer to her as Aurora, she has loose hair, provocative clothes, much less of an accent, and is kind of wild and man-crazy and on the prowl.

Combined Math is everyone from those who can just about count to two to the freakin' geniuses in one class. To this end, classes will be loosely structured around mathematic 'themes' with assignments varying according to the students' skill levels.

Class Topics
Week 1: Introductions and Placement Tests
Week 2: Math: Why You Need It
Week 3: Numbers: The Basis of Math
Week 4: Addition and Subtraction
Week 5: Multiplication
Week 6: Division: You Can't Do It By Zero
Midterm Break
Week 7: Midterm Exam
Week 8: Fractions
Week 9: Percentages
Week 10: Variables: But Why Are the Numbers Gone?
Week 11: Geometry: Math About Shapes
Week 12: Trigonometry: All About Triangles
Week 13: Pre-Calculus: Some of You Will Cry
Week 14: Review
Week 15: Final Exam: Many of You Will Cry

Class Requirements: Okay, look, I was an English major in college, meaning I haven't taken math in about three years, and I'm pretty sure none of you want to take math over, either. Most of the actual math-related content will be handwaved.

Sign in before 12:01 AM Saturday. Participate as much as you can. Handwaving is totally fine. Let me know if your character's going to miss class, either IC or OOC. Two unexcused absences will land your character in detention. Asking Mr. Beaubier when you'll use this in the real world will result in detention and rolled eyes.

Grades will be based on your character's grade on the midterm and final, and any pop quizzes that might pop up along the way.
