  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 Especially trivia games with out of date themes or awful grammar.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. 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.
  7. I'll let ya know come spring.

  15. Amazon has a deal on chromebooks (200 CDN) rn for black friday. For what you need this should bee good enough- https://www.amazon.ca/Asus-Chromebook-C202SA-YS01-11-6-Inch-Celeron/dp/B01DBGVB5C/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1480090924&sr=1-2
  16. Im currently working for a firm that specializes in immigration law, I can help your uncle out. Going to be a busy year...
  17. He's like all the best part of green and libertarian. I thought I was going to watch the first minute, giggle then look away but I stayed for the entire vid. Worth every second.
  18. You never really want to be making GGX with playing so few traps, its just an invitation to get killed. Thrasher is only bad in situations where you have already established your board. Fortunately this deck is pretty damn good when you establish your board and can dispose of dead thrashers (tsuk, boss dragon). Thrasher doesnt have the issue of getting interupted. SS thrasher, then NS a gadget wont get creamed by a fog blade. You can still keep playing. As mentioned above its also the best bait for kirin. SS thrasher, swing, kirin bounces, mp2 do your shit.
  19. Holy fuck "Rip the baby out of the womb" What a degenerate, emotion driven response.
  20. Winter, where did you find this news source on the UofT attack? I asked some friends who work at the downtown campus and they had no clue this happened.
  21. -You play this deck over other decks because of how absurd Buster is. The rank 4 toolbox is the NEXT best thing about this deck. -The normal summon thing isnt really that big of an issue. Thasher is the stones and the gadgets are also pretty good. You just throw down monsters and abuse union hangar. -If you play 3 instant, 3 brilliant, 3 twin then thats 9 cards to continue play through a strike/warning. Which is also great. -The real deathblow isnt that you just get cherried, its when you make tsukiomi with like 3 cards in hand expecting to make the buster after you pitch and draw 2. This is where you've got to play your opponent. Some one who has something good will seem very engaged in your turn 1 play usually. If you sense somethings awry then dont make tsukiomi, try grinding things out with raffles turn 1. Or just use your brain in general dude. This deck has nutty cards that just generate advantage. Find the other ways to exploit that advantage and flip your opponent on their head when they expect the same stagnant lines of play and you abuse another
  22. This deck does not get blown out by cherries or kaijus if you just play correctly (be it difficult, focusing on your opponent to make a read on what they hold in hand is crucial). The thing this deck has going for it is a consistent disruption monster and access to the rank 4 toolbox (id argue the best extra deck toolbox in the game). Getting around the normal summon thing isnt an issue if you just throw in 3 brilliant fusion and 3 instant fusion. Or you take a different direction and use lots of traps (classic case of if your normal summon fails, you can set traps to try again next turn). What attracts me most to this deck is its ability to adapt and play around cards that will be sided for it. People will focus on Buster so you flip around and play a tight rank 4 game. Basically no other great deck right now has consistant access to cards that give you 5000ATK meteorburst, targeting spot removal, soul drain, and trap hole cards from deck. Oh yeah, and Buster Dragon is great but you know that.
  23. Either way, building a website nowadays is expensive. Even if you have some hack out of itt tech throw something together on wix.
