The Shaw Show has been my blog on Google’s Blogger since May 2010. In the last year, I have noticed that I like to solve a lot of mathematical problems. This involves some complex notation. While I found that I could mark up some mathematical notation using Blogger, it did not look nice.
I found out that WordPress works well with LaTeX. For example, here is how one would find the expected value of a product of two continuous random variables in a multivariate setting:
That does not need to make sense to you at all. It is just illustrating how elegant math can be displayed in WordPress.
I plan on working through daily lessons through Blogger University to slowly build up and modify the site. For the next 14 days, I will be working through “Blogging: Fundamentals.”

- Personal Improvement
- Problem Solving
- Teaching Demonstrations (that will hopefully help in understanding problem solving posts)
- Hobby Posts (cycling, home brewing, etc
I can hardly wait to get started. Hope some of you will enjoy this adventure with me.
