Little things

I am the kind of person who is really into little details. I'm not quite as OCD as Adrian Monk, but I still pay way more attention to tiny things than I probably ought. I'm not sure if that's the reason for or outcome of being a web and graphic designer who scrutinises individual pixels for hours, but I guess it doesn't matter that much any more!

The reason I point this out today is that I've made a number of small aesthetic changes around the site. They're intended to give the place a minor visual refresh and hopefully make it a more enjoyable browsing experience. If you're the kind of person who appreciates these things, then you've probably already noticed the changes - and if you haven't, it's no sweat off my back. I do it as much for myself as for anyone else who happens upon this site and finds its resources useful. 8-)

That said, there's more to this update than just some cosmetic revisions. I've just uploaded three files to the site:
  • Program summaries for year 9 and year 11 2U. I'm not sure why I didn't upload these earlier - I put them together way back at the beginning of the year - but I suppose it's better late than never, especially with junior exams starting in three days. The main benefit of these little sheets is that you can get an overview of the entire year's work at a glance. For more details, visit the mathematics faculty site on the intranet and download the full programs.
  • Two practice tests for Absolute Value (year 10). I wrote these for my year 11 class at the beginning of this year because last year's topic test had been postponed. Scanned solutions are included, so you can see exactly how those wacky absolute value graphs are meant to look.
Lastly - and I know this will only be of interest to a select few of you - I've finally published my thoughts on writing and learning. Though I've approached it from an explicitly Christian perspective, it's such a broadly applicable idea that anyone who is interested in being a better learner would probably benefit from taking a look. It's there for anyone interested!
