About Me/Rules

Teaching and studying mathematics is what I do on a day to day basis and I like to create math content. It is what I was born to do. Teaching is a way for me to get across the message of mathematics and the Internet is another way for me to reach the world. I blog else where on the Internet, but I like to keep that separate from mathematics blog, because they are two unrelated topics.

Because I am a full time teacher my blog is limited to the topics that I cover in my classes. I do not get away from that too much. I like to keep the content on this blog fresh. I try to post at least once a day during the school year. Even if it is only a video lesson that I uploaded to youtube.

I am open to discussions about any mathematical topic. As I write this page, this blog is very new. There are 6 or less posts, but the teacher in me is coming through and I realize there are a few things to say about interacting on this blog. I being online I am a math facilitator. You have to come here with real question. I have a very hard time dealing with the whole, “I don’t understand any of it.” Thank you comments are accepted here. I will be sure to comment back quickly.

What comes next are what the professionals call polices, but I call them the RULES!

1. Language – the best possible English you can muster online. I understand most of the shorthand. NO SWEARING or innuendo.

2. Try to keep it about the math. That is what this blog is about.

3. I reserve the right to block you and delete your comments at anytime.

4. I am not responsible for where you were on the Internet before you arrived at my blog, nor am I responsible for where you go after you have visited my blog.

Have fun while you are here. Learn something. Use it in your class for a presentation, that is why I put it on youtube.

Be Well!

  5. Mr. Pilarski? As in my 7th and 8th grade math teacher? I ran across this blog trying to make my wag through algebra 2!

    • If you are taking Algebra 2 now, I doubt I am the same Mr. Pilarski. Did you find anything in my blog that helped you with Algebra 2? I have not taught 8th grade in years and I have never taught 7th grade.

  6. Mr. Pi:

    I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to write this blog. I discovered your blog today while searching for how to model data using a quadratic function.

    Your post on this topic really helped me a lot and was written in a way that anybody could understand. Also, the examples that you provided in that post were helpful, as they showed how to go about performing the steps and what the steps would eventually lead to.

    I truly appreciate the time and effort you put into writing this blog! It helped me a great deal!

    Thank you,
    Jamie McGibbon

    • Jamie,

      Kind Regards,
      Mr. Pi

  10. Hello Mr. Pi,

    Your blog on How to Write Indirect Proofs – Exterior Angle Inequality Theorem is well-written. Easy to understand!

    Your blog had been a big help as I wrote a learning module on inequalities in triangles for our Department of Education. I hope it is alright with you. The website link is acknowledged at the bibliography. Please reply.

    • That is not a problem at all. I am glad you were able to find my blog helpful.
