### Conic Construction

The one conic construction that is probably what you know if you know one is the parabola construction. <\br> <\br> In the construction above, the line through A and B is the directrix. Point C is the focus. Point D is placed on line AB and is free to move along the line. A line perpendicular to lina AB is erected at point D. A perpendicular bisector of the points C and D is constructed. The point E where this perpendicular bisector intersects the perperndicular to line AB at point D is equally distant from point C and the line AB, meaning it lies on the parabola with the directrix line AB and the focus C.

### Messin' with p5*js

In anticipation of using some version of processing js in a non-AP computer science class I will be teaching this summer, I am just tinkering with arrays this morning. I like how this turned out.

### Columbus Math Teacher Circle

I was fortunate enough to attend the Columbus Math Teacher Circle yesterday and to share the game Borel as a way to introduce my favorite instructional arc for teaching probability ideas: Intuition, Simulation, Calculation.

Roll three 6-sided dice and one 30-sided dice. Will the difference between the maximum value and minimum value showing on the dice be greater than 15?

### My Google Data Analytics Capstone Project

What do you hope to take away from this capstone project?
I am hoping to show that I can do it, and maybe demonstrate a practical understanding of data dashboards so I can better serve the schools I am working with.

What is one important skill you think you’ll learn?
I think just brining it all together...R, Kaggle, Tableau...

Which skills do you most look forward to demonstrating?
Google Data Studio perhaps? But I have learned a few new google sheets tricks

What are some issues you might encounter?
Having my OCD kick in.
