Starter activities. 10 questions a day keeps the bad grades away.

Randomly generated starter activites. Written in javascript with a lovely bit of jQuery giving the flippy over thing.

Based on CaptainLouis' template from the TES. I find that giving my classes repeated practice on these techniques builds confidence and competence.


$P Recognizer. 'Low cost' text recoginition for iPhone.

This is a Swift implimentation of $P Point-Cloud recognizer code.

The algorithm was created by Radu-Daniel Vatavu, Lisa Anthony, Jacob O. Wobbrock. The pseudocode in their paper is clear enough that even a n00b like me could make it work.

Super happy about this one. This feels like the first proper bit of programming I've done and hopefully it might be useful to someone else.

Check out how it looks on an iPhone.

Balloon fractals Maths enrichment doesn't have to be an exam.

A maths fun day based on fractals. Poodles are sooo last season. This year all the cool kids are making 3D Sierpinski's triangles. There's even some python scripts to make some lovely fractals. Inspired by the brilliant Vi Hart. It's always good to learn more.

Two week time-table on iCal Here's an applescript.

This two week time-table apple script takes most of the hassle out of building the time table. Not all of the hassle though! You have to create a calendar for each class you have/teach and alter the code if the times of the day are different. If there's demand I might even make it more user friendly.
