So I've always been a math/science person, you probably already know that, but notice that the math is first in my description. It's logical, sequential, and so me! Science is application of math and it is fascinating and interesting and there is so much of it. Trying to be an expert in genetics and astronomy and chemistry and geology and ecology and...I know there is more but some days my mind begins to go numb.
I've been reading a lot these last three weeks, and alright I did indulge by ready the 50 Shades trilogy, but the Disappearing Spoon book by Sam Kean is really a great read. It takes science pieces and intertwines the historical perspective and little know facts behind the stories. Although it seems to be a chemistry based book, there is a little bit of knowledge about just about every area of science I will be teaching. It is the interesting background that I've been looking for and need as I begin to map out my new school year!
