Drug Free Geometry

[tweetmeme source=”your_twitter_name” only_single=false]

Hello, and welcome to the place for all your Geometrical needs. Euclidian would be rollin over in his grave if he knew I was tossing out freebies like shirts from the chubby guy at the Nickelback concert.

I will be the first person to admit, these videos are the most boring things on the planet, and to make it worse come to worst, I used this ridiculous monotone voice mingled with megaUnfunny sayings. I have no idea why, but my vocals distinctly change from whiny southern girlenese, to deep monotone toolbag. Seriously, if you see one that’s bearable, let people know in the comments so they don’t waste their time. Who am I kidding, these are all death on wheels. Just go watch Lost.

Also, several of them were recorded on an old camera a couple of years ago so the quality is rather crapola. But hey, can’t be worse than the material and presentation. Bada bing!

Answers to this post: 1) -10. 2) y = 7x (+ 0) 3) 44 degrees 4) 36 feet 5) 135 degrees Bonus: Terrell, while OchoCinco remains funnier, Owens is advanced in his skills with a lightsaber because he trained for the role of Mace Windu for episodes I-III. True story. Maybe.

    Where did the video for 2.5 go?

    These videos really help. Any chance you could post videos for Chapters 9-12? Thanks.

    Hi Tyler, OMG you’re hilarious and your lessons are very good! And I have the most serious form of mathphobia ever, so severe that I went and studied/taught Latin so you know I know what I’m talking about. Which is why, incidentally, you should cross it off your to-do list (Yeah, I’ve been clicking around here some.) Same goes for the PhD — please contact me if you ever want to be dissuaded from that some more.

    Hey Mr. Tarver,
    How about some algebra 2 videos?
    We don’t have enough time in class for you to answer ALL of the questions and I don’t fully understand what we’re being taught. Which is probably why my grade is what it is.
