blogometry

Use the diagram to the right to answer the following questions.
  1. Are these triangles congruent?
  2. What postulate or theorem proves that they are congruent?
  3. If they are congruent, what is the proper congruence statement for these triangle?

Oh wait, this is the blog, not the geometry test I stayed up at the school until 9:30 typing. When it gets this late, the distinctions get a little fuzzy.

I am constantly telling my students, that to properly serve the God who created them, they should do their absolute best. That is what the Bible says to do.

And with things that we enjoy, it is easy to follow through on that request. Sometimes doing our best will result in some temporal reward which will also make it easy to "do all things heartily, as unto the Lord, and not unto men."

But when it really counts is when the task is something that you don't enjoy, or don't particularly understand the reason or purpose. Or if there is no immediate reward on the horizon.

Those are the times that your efforts are the most noticed by God Almighty.

This is my hope, as I stay up here and type this test for these kids. I could have easily given them one of those pre-made book tests. But those just aren't as good, and they don't really cover what I have taught in class.

I hope that the lazy fellow that I am can set an example for them. If I can be diligent in my work... trust me, anybody can. But I know that these little things might go unappreciated by those that they are done for, because they have so many times before. So I lean back and hit print, knowing that the work won't go completely unnoticed, because He sees all.
