Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

Pancake Friday

Occasionally in this blog I have alluded to the “Friday morning tea” tradition; as recounted elsewhere, Michael Bulmer started it in the Maths Department at UTas heading on for 20 years ago, and then I introduced it to the then Department of Science and Mathematics Education at the University of Melbourne over 13 years ago. When I moved back to UTas at the beginning of this year I was in the Faculty of Education, and they needed to be β€” and seem quite happy to have been β€” introduced to the Friday morning tea tradition as well.

I guess each person has a turn to be one of two providers every couple of months. About once a year, though, I decide to do something a little different, and I bring in the ingredients and necessary accoutrements to cook pancakes*, live.

Much to my relief, running the two electric frypans didn’t blow the fuse, and the pancakes were well-received by the hungry hordes. Live pancakes and cheesecakes on hiking trips are my two culinary specialties.

* They’re probably more like crepes than the thick pancakes some might know.
