Contact Info

For any particular questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact me anytime. If I can't answer, please tell me the best way and best time to get back in touch with you. I'm often not immediately available, but I regularly check and respond to messages.

I do not discuss student individual student performance via email or voicemail, but can use either to arrange a time to talk with you by telephone or in person.

Finding me during the school day is fairly easy, once I've established a routine. Look below for my schedule.

Questions & Conversation

Questions?I'm happy to answer questions, or chat, most any time. I generally return phone calls and answer emails within 24 hours.

or you can leave a message at my official LHS voicemail: 216-227-5700 ext 18663

My Schedule

You will usually find me in Room B310. During planning and lunch periods, another good place to find me is in the teacher work room, A314. (If I'm in neither place, I probably am at a meeting, or unavailable right then.)

Room B310 is along the eastern edge of the math wing of the third floor, just across the hall from the House 2 office. To see a map, click here.

I am happy to rendezvous with students who have questions; to receive assistance or advice it is better to set something up with me earlier in the day, or best yet the day before.

Unscheduled Help

Before school, I'm nearly always in room B310 by 7:30 am. No appointment for before-school help is required. However, it is first come, first serve, so it's better to make an appointment. Do not hesitate to drop by if you need help, or assistance of any kind.

The best way to get me a message during the day is by email, and you can also try voicemail to my cellphone (or the school's message system) which I will eventually hear.

Most days, I usually remain in B310 until about 3:15 pm, and normally will stick around as long as necessary to help students who come to see me right after school. However, it is first come, first serve so it's much better to make an appointment. Do not hesitate to drop by if you need help, or assistance of any kind.

I generally see messages left on my cellphone regularly, unless I leave it in my car or let the battery run out. The #8863 voicemail alerts my school email which I check a few times every school day, so it's the best if your are in a hurry.

 

Remind!

This year, I'm will use a system called Remind, formerly known as Remind 101. Remind is a simple way for you to stay informed and up-to-date with what’s happening in our class. By joining our class on Remind, you’re choosing to receive class messages via push notifications, SMS, or email. Don’t worry, when joining Remind your phone number or email will not be shared with me or anyone else in the class or at the school. And you can witdraw from Remind at any time if you don't like it. Click on the link below for instructions on joining the appropriate class:

Social Media

I occasionally post pointers to interesting mathematical & statistical content from the Twitter account @mathlore, and usually tag these appropriately using #lhsapstats, #lhsadvalg2, #lhscm, #lhs_all, and #justforfun. I generally do not use this account to follow others.

I personally use other social media, but do not follow any students who have not yet graduated. (I do follow graduates, it's a nice way to keep in touch.)

Sending Me a File

The best way to send a file to me in response to an assigment is within Google Classroom. It is the only way you will receive full credit for turning in the assignment. If you're sending it to me ad hoc, I prefer you to use Google Drive.

Another way to get a file to me is to attach the file to an email message if it’s not too big; “too big” usually means ≥ 10 MB. Send it to misterp@mathlore.net .

A last-resort way is to use the completed-assignments folder. (You need to tell me after you do that; I don't check and wouldn't notice unless you do.)

 

Suggestions Wanted!

I love to hear suggestions, from parents, from students, and from anyone else who is reading this. I don't care whether they are signed or anonymous.

If you have any thoughts about how this site, or how the instruction of these courses can be improved, please tell me.
