I have no idea what’s happening here.

I’m guessing here that cnt=count & cum=cumulative. The bars at the bottom represent the total (count) that have that probability of being picked and the curve across the top shows the cumulative frequency (or count).

The two graphs are often put together to reinforce a message OR to confuse the heck out of people who aren’t good with numbers. Journalists, I’m looking at you!

Pretty fab day 1. Woke up to a lovely note from Mr S and some verses which went straight into my diary!

4hrs on the trot with sixth form (this was my room half way through, messy little muppets).

I love my form class and my year 13s are all workers (yay!) If I can teach the girls to speak we’ll be on to a winner! :)

Next up. Getting home from work, making dinner and planning my 5 lessons for tomorrow…. I am looking forward to sleep & my husband being on earlies next week so I can actually see him :)

Today was the first inset day of 2014-15, tomorrow is the day when I will meet my form class for the first time and teach my first lesson of the year.

So it is time for my New Years Resolutions (to be reviewed half termly…)

  1. Keep on top of lesson plans (knowing what I will be teaching for the next week wherever possible)
  2. Eat healthily and cut out the sugar
  3. Get a minimum of 6-7 hours sleep a night. (even if that means getting the bus with the students to school).

My aim for this year is to be the best teacher that I can be for these students and that starts with me being the best version of me that I can be!

Anyone else have New Year Resolutions?

A crumpled bottle and a slightly squished bag can only mean one thing… #backtoschool #commuting. 5am alarm, in work for 7.10am, productive and fairly stressfree day until I try and go home. Managing to JUST miss 3 buses along the ridiculous route home and adding in rush hour traffic means that I will get home 13.5hrs after I left the place… #readyforbed #secondyearhasbegun

Reflection before I’ve even been back a day, before I’ve even reached the first day back, in fact. I should probably be going to sleep. Oh well, going to write this down to remind me not to be an idiot on the future.

Freaking lesson plans - paper ones or electronic ones - need to be done. I’m…

Does your school require them or is it a personal goal?

missdunlop replied to your post: I have been doing planning! Check me o…

V impressed! I’ve got the bare bones for my first lesson with each class done and haven’t a clue about the rest! :) #15daystogo

I just noticed your hashtag, and I’m glad I didn’t notice it before now!

When do you go back?

Tomorrow! And whilst I’ve done LOADS since I wrote that post, I don’t necessarily feel any more prepared…. Woo!

Not a SMART board, but the interactive projector.

Is there a way to permanently set the settings? Every time I open a new window currently, it has cursor/mouse set to pen. 

Ideally, I would like mouse and hand to always be set to select and the pen to always be set to write. Any idea of how to do this?

missdunlop: my pens are not on a tray. The board is just a normal whiteboard and the projector controls the technology.

Ooooh… mine is both. Eek.

Anyone have one of these? I need tips.

I’ve got one and I HATE using powerpoint on it because it glitches quite frequently when Notebook is almost open. I use SMART Notebook almost exclusively (but am diversifying this year with more power points to make best use of my presentation clicker) my best tip is to experiment and have a LOT of patience, it takes a while to catch up with you sometimes :)
