My Terrific Students

Just saw this on the class facebook page.  One girl found it and many of the kids are talking about ordering it.

Just got this e-mail with the subject "Are you available to help me now?"

I'm still not too sure if I can analyze equations proficiently enough
so I decided to do one more problem, number 18 in the blue textbook on
page 204. However its a daunting problem,f(x) will never be negative
which means its first derivative is always positive as well, which I
believe the 2nd derivative will show that f(x) will have a concave up
at some point. I'm not sure how to find the points though, do I need a
calculator in order to do this problem. The question is 8e^(-x) /
(2e^(-x) + 5e^(-1.5x)) if I'm not mistaken.

I'm going to have a hard time giving all of this up.  I love these kids.  They keep me young and strong.

I think it's so awesome that your kids email you for help. It says a LOT about what they think of you, and how they feel about you.

Just fyi, I was like you about that coffee machine for a very long time. But, I started to think about the coffee I stopped to get almost every morning, at usually over $2 per cup, and how much that adds up to over a year's time. Then, when I saw this deal at Sam's Club, it just made sense to get it. Like I said, the 60 cups that came in the bonus pack will save me well over $120. Plus, the $20 reusable filter cup, that was included for free, will let me save even more money since I won't be forced to buy those coffee cups. When you add it all up, it was well worth the $129.98 price tag! My travel mug fits right under the spout, so I can brew a fresh cup of coffee in the time it takes me to put on my coat!

Now, if you and your husband don't get a lot of coffee by the cup outside of your house, maybe it wouldn't save you the same kind of money, and maybe it wouldn't be such a deal for you guys. I don't know. All I know is I LOVE this thing! :)
