Image Credit Follow on In the previous post ( link to part 1 ) I discussed the basic mathematical ideas to have in mind when thinking about purchasing a car. I had decided I would look at cars in the range of 80 - 100 000 rand and I wanted to buy a used car because of the better value offered. The videos in post 1, suggest cars around the range of 2 - 4 years old, as they offer the best trade off between future maintenance costs and depreciation on the purchase price after you have bought it. I agree with the facts laid out and will probably look for something in the 3 to 4 year old range. However I still need to check to see if the same patterns on maintenance costs and depreciation are also true in the South African context. This points to our next step in our search. How do we get accurate information relevant to the SA context to see if these ideas mentioned are true and so allow me to get closer to my ultimate goal, buying a car. I am going to start with an internet search to

Intro Here are a collection of links that give great advice on how to track down academic information efficiently over time. It could be particularly helpful for postgraduate students who are finding the accessing and sorting of academic information overwhelming. https://paperpile.com/g/academic-search-engines / https://paperpile.com/guides/research / https://paperpile.com/guides/writing/ https://paperpile.com/g/search-online-research-database/ https://paperpile.com/g/academic-research-databases/ https://paperpile.com/g/google-scholar-guide / https://paperpile.com/g/search-online-research-database / https://paperpile.com/g/eric-research-database/ https://paperpile.com/g/what-is-research-paper/ https://guides.library.ucla.edu/databases/choosing
Intro Over the last year or so I have increasingly been using Microsoft OneNote to author my maths lessons. I think a lot of maths teachers would benefit from having a closer look at the tool as it has a lot features that lessen the amount of work a maths teacher has to do when preparing lessons. It is also very easy to work with, when collaborating with other maths teachers because of the native sharing functions it has. Some Useful Links These are a collection of links I saved to help with common problems I had when starting to use OneNote as Maths Teacher.
