I got back to the States just over a week ago. The next morning, my 12-year-old started a week-long day camp and I went back to work.

At the time, though, it had begun to feel almost like a burden—there was a syllabus to write, after all, a talk to give at the faculty colloquy, a daughter to prepare for college. Those three days, though, (almost) internet-free and far from a phone, gave me the break I needed to get back to work this week.

Calculus, which I begin teaching again on Monday, is the world of the infinitesimal. Rather than asking about changes over a decade, year, or even second, we ask about changes over lengths of time and space that are so small they approach lengths of zero. We can then talk about changes that happen in an instant, or even a point.

Although I frequently disagree with Dr. Crazy, I have to give her props on this. There's something anachronistic about the way most colleges do 'office hours' at this point, and we need to rethink them.
