deep in preparation for Saturday's Math Contest

I've got another math contest coming up this weekend. These are the math contests that I run, under the name SACMATH (Sacramento Area Competitions in Mathematics).

This weekend is a High School Math Contest. There are individual events: Number Sense, Calculator, and Individual Math (Sprint and Target), and Team events: Team Test and Relay. I'll be giving out awards to the top individuals, by grade level, in the above events; and to the top (three-person) teams.

The math contests are always a lot of fun, but also a lot of prep. A lot of email, especially. So that's why I'm quiet on the blogging and social network front. But life moves along: family, work, writing, fitness, math contests. Along it moves.

Post math contest, I think I'll post a summary of 2009 writing and 2010 goals both in writing and in all parts of life.

And now it's time to get back to work! Yeff out.
