Here I will continue placing lessons and worksheets I created over many years of teaching in 3 different high schools. All worksheets are in Microsoft Word or in PDF format.

I retired in June, 1993, from teaching math and computer science at Glenbrook North High School (Northbrook, IL) and am currently living in Albuquerque, NM, where I unretired for a while, teaching at West Mesa High School and then at Sandia High School, retiring once again at the end of May, 2009.

A most useful site where you can ask any question, including "What is the meaning of life?" and mathematical questions of all sorts--you can even type things like "factor 3x^2-7x+6" and it will give you the answer (x + 3)(3x - 2):     Wolfram's Alpha Site
