Anyone know how to change the font size of an equation in google docs?  (Preferably without using a third party equation editor)

Attn any I-Poly Juniors,

Thanks for adding me to your circles.  You also need to add me using my other email, the one with the .2012 added to it.  I am about ready to send out House lists and you don't want to miss them...

Attn everyone else,

This is the last reminder I'm sending out so you don't have to uncircle me.  In 6 days I'll be able to nag them...  I mean remind them in person.

My favorite part:  "Battlebots, on the face of it, seem like they’d be among the most dangerous robo-soldiers. But it’s hard to feel threatened by something that you can evade by sitting on the kitchen counter and destroy by letting the sink overflow."
Robot Apocalypse What if there was a robot apocalypse? How long would humanity last? —Rob Lombino Before I answer this question, let me give you a little background on where I’m coming from. I’m by no means an expert, but I have some experience with robotics. My first job out of college was working on robots at NASA, and my undergraduate degree project was on robotic navigation. I spent my teenage years participating in FIRST Robotics, programm...

This looks like a great project.  They want to tag and organize all of the great educational content that is available online!  Which is quite an ambitious goal.  So they need people to help.

If you want to help fill out this survey http://goo.gl/bDLnZ

They need coders, social networkers, and taggers....  (Please leave the spray paint at home.)
 
The Learning Registry: Helping educators find the right stuff

There are countless repositories of high-quality content available to teachers, but it is still nearly impossible to find content to use with a particular lesson plan for a particular grade aligned to particular standards. That's where the Department of Education's new Learning Registry comes in. (By +Marie Bjerede)

Lot of potential math problems here....
 
Quite something... 5 men stand at Ground Zero as a nuclear-tipped missile explodes 10000 feet above them.

Coolest web page I've seen all summer!

BTW "Please do not use the map or its data to fly a plane, sail a boat, or fight wildfires :-) "
 
This is a neat site for seeing wind flow
The wind map is a personal art project, not associated with any company. We've done our best to make this as accurate as possible, but can't make any guarantees about the correctness of the data or ou...

Interesting, 2 people have reshared my post but they weren't in my circles.  How did they see it?

(I realize it's public.  So are millions of other posts.  How did they see this one?)

Dear Google+

My students and I are ALREADY signed up for Google+.  A student sent me a message via "Messenger."  My email is telling me to get Google+ on my phone in order to respond to the message.  I want to read and respond using Google+ on my computer.  I don't like being required to sign up for something in order to respond.

And furthermore, don't load a "find your friends" page when I want to reload my Google+ page.  I'll find my friends when I damn well please.

Rant over.....

Hello circles,

If you are a Junior at I-Poly, thanks for adding me to your circles.  You also need to add my evil twin using the email I gave you.  (Post a comment if you need it again.)  I will be posting boring stuff for math teachers here, which you are welcome to read.  But I will be posting important announcements on my other profile.  

BTW  School starts in 1 month.  And since I know you are as excited as I am I made a countdown timer...

I a little troubled at using "googlejuice" as a word.  That may be in part Michael Keaton's fault but for the most part I just think it's, y'know, not a word.  Then again, I had no problem with "legalcomic dipshittery" so perhaps it's just the lack of capitalization that's bothering me.  And Michael Keaton.

According to http://www.london2012.com/terms-of-use/ you're not supposed to link to the official Olympics site if you're being critical. That's stupid! Oops I mean what a brilliant way to control your brand.
