TI-89 Calculator and Batteries Cozy

Well, since I was making storage pocket things, I decided to make a calculator cozy for my TI-89. I also needed a place to hold extra batteries, because I’d rather not be in the middle of a test and have my calculator die with no back up batteries available. Yes! This does happen! I’m still debating about adding the extra ribbons on top to secure the calculator, but I don’t know if it really needs it, because it fits pretty snug. I made this out of the Mars Martian fabric that I created. :) UPDATE: I decided to add the bows for closure. :)

iClicker Fabric Cozy

So, for my Biology class that starts Fall term we have to use these iClicker devices (I’m assuming for taking quizzes or something). I bought a Hello Kitty tin to put it in, but I didn’t want it clunking around in there, so I made this iClicker fabric cozy for it out of a swatch of fabric that I had. The inside is lined with fleece so it is a bit heavier weight than just cotton fabric. :) Neat! Now I can be all kawaii in bio class! :) hehe UPDATE: I decided to put on some ribbons that when tied keep the clicker from falling out! :)

Excited About Perception!

Hey Everybody! I’m really excited about this new show on TNT called “Perception.” http://www.tntdrama.com/series/perception/

It stars Eric McCormack (of Will & Grace fame) as a university professor, author and crime solver who is also living with schizophrenia! I’m always skeptical of depictions of people with mental illness on TV and in movies, because they usually make them out to be psychopathic killers or something. I’ve watched the first two episodes of the show so far, and I think they do an excellent job of making the character seem like a regular human being! It is so fantastic! They use the hallucinations as kind of a dramatic device and employ some other Beautiful Mind-esque devices to try to make it like the viewer can see what the character is seeing. Some commenters have argued that it doesn’t show the horrific aspects of schizophrenia enough, but I personally like that they are showing him to be a regular person, and an intelligent one at that! I like that they show him holding down a job, interacting with people socially, and using the help of other people to reality test. I’m excited to see how the character and the show develop and I hope it gets picked up for another season! Please check it out if you get a chance! Again, it is on TNT Monday nights.

Calc Example: For When You Hit sqrt(2-2cos(t)) And Need To Integrate!

April 19, 2012 at 1:08 am | Posted in Calculus, Calculus Example, College, integrals, integrate sqrt(2-2cos(t)), integration, Jon Rogawski, Kristin Bell, math, Mathematics, University, vector calculus, vectors | Leave a comment

This example almost made my brain explode! I didn’t know about the Weierstrass substitution method (see this link for more info.: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weierstrass_substitution) when I began this problem…which is what I needed to complete the problem. I’m still unsure if I did it correctly, because we were supposed to find the integral over 0 to 2*pi, but the integration method only works over 0 to pi, so I ended up multiplying the answer by 2 (because 2 times pi is 2*pi) which got me the answer the book was asking for, but it seemed odd to do it that way. The question is number 18, section 13.3 from the Jon Rogawski Calc book in case you are interested. I think it is a pretty great textbook by the way…I mean as far as math textbooks go! We were also supposed to find when the speed was at its max, but I was so tired I just figured it was at pi and gave up! So, here’s the problem!

Calc 4 Vector Integration Problem

Let me just say: Calc 4 is confusing!!! We are working with vectors and all sorts of weird 3D shapes and it is strange! Here is an example homework problem. I hope I survive Calc 4!!!

Success at School Makes Me Happy!

I’m very pleased to report that this last term at school went great! I took the first term of Calculus and Intro. to Linear Algebra and got A’s in both classes! I also had a really good time with the classes. I had great teachers too! I have seen a real improvement in my ability to actually get to classes because of my bipap sleep machine and have seen an even greater increase in my ability to do homework and concentrate since I started taking Abilify last January. Doing well in school has always been important to me, but because of my schizophrenia and sleep problems I have had a lot of issues with being able to attend and get through classes.

When I first became ill when I was 15 my grades really suffered. For the first time in my life I wasn’t a straight A student which was quite disheartening. The last two terms in school I have been feeling a lot like my old self for the first time since I was 15!!!

Anyway, this last term was great and a real ego booster! I just hope I can keep up the success! :)
