  1. I am probably butchering it (I gave a brief wiki look) but maybe something like this: The math most people are used to works with the single object (like your bank account) but in abstract algebra we get to manipulate sets and spaces! We not only get to look at your bank account but ALL THE BANK ACCOUNTS, we look at banks, cities, countries, corporations. Instead of the lone object we manipulate we work with big sets of objects and see how they interact. Tie in what you know with something that people generally already know. It takes a lot of practice to connect with someone and be there with them. -When I teach integration my favourite example is showing how if you draw a circle you can draw a bunch of smaller concentric circles inside. Then take each circle and stretch them out into strings. There will be one large string that is the circumference of your circle then a slightly smaller string until you hit a little dot. This shape forms a right angle triangle. From here most people know how to find the area of the circle because your base is the radius and your height is the circumference. If you do B*H/2 you get 2pieR^2. In this example it is assumed people know the area of a triangle (and if they dont you can explain it through cutting a square in half) and that they have decent spacial senses. If you want some insight in great ways to teach/explain math give joy of x a read.
  2. I like old shitty board games. Especially trivia games with out of date themes or awful grammar.
  3. https://www.khanacademy.org/math/linear-algebra This is a great place to start for beginners. I know its not my thread but I had to interject!
  4. I think there are some private companies that do it. I know they are popular in North Toronto. I would just look around on indeed. I think there's a lot of call center work in the Montreal area for low skilled jobs. Also restaurant and tourism jobs will be big there come summer.
  5. rei is on the money. Montreal has amazing nightlife and is one of the cheaper cities to live. Join this group if you're serious and keep an eye out, good places come and go quite quickly. https://www.facebook.com/groups/montrealapartments/
  6. I'll let ya know come spring.
  7. So this year is very special because national parks in Canada have free admission as long as you get one of these- http://www.commandesparcs-parksorders.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=22953&urlLangId=-1&productId=524527&urlRequestType=Base&langId=-1&catalogId=53407 Theres a lot of land untouched by people, a lot of these parks are enormous. Heres a list- http://www.pc.gc.ca/listing/np-pn/recherche-search_e.asp?p=1 I think the best park to take advantage of fast is this one as its unbelievably beautiful and has some of the best slopes in the world. http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/pn-np/ab/banff/index.aspx Anyways, Im not a great expert on travel but I wanted dgz to know about this in case anyone wanted to plan an outdoorsy type of trip this year.
