Thank you, Roger!! Here we all are getting empirical data and you do the
brilliant - write Mars.

We had very short periods today. Tomorrow we put into TI lists and so they
learn data entry and distributions and single variables and someone is sure
to do percents (will report tomorrow).
Then we hit the MiniTab . We have electricity and 5 new Power Macs in the
computerroom as of today. So much excitement I can hardly stand it. I got to
install the software on these out of the box beauties. The only piece of
machinery that excites me more is a leather interior, manual drive, BMW 730.
I have 10 students in class and 2 independent studies (not free that
period) so the numbers come out right.
