Envisioning a syllabus on the Display of Quantitative Information

I am planning on teaching a course on data visualization to some Ph.D. students in the social sciences, and could use some ideas about designing the syllabus. If you have taken or taught such a course, I would especially value your input, but I would also love to hear from any among you who have experience doing data visualization. [more inside]

Please teach me how to become organized.

I feel hopelessly disorganized as I become more aware of what “organized” looks like, and I have no vision for how to change. I'm studying to be a teacher, and I have so many different interrelated resources for my own learning as well as for teaching, and they are piling up in random places. My computer desktop is abysmal. I'd like a meaningful and structured method of organization. How do I get from where I am now (chaos) to a system for storing papers, and proper naming conventions for files? And most importantly, as teachers are in the constant process of being inspired, collecting things and creating output of various forms, I need a semblance of a workflow to keep me afloat! My apologies in advance for over thinking this and making it perhaps more complicated than in has to be. [more inside]

Teaching challenges for computer classes

I've been asked to teach some basic computer skills classes to people who are unfamiliar with computers. I have the content laid out relatively clearly, but I don't know how best to do whole group instruction in this context. In particular, I am looking for advice on how to avoid having students do something unexpected (like accidentally clicking the mouse and deactivating a selection) that would require me to walk over to the individual student's computer and troubleshoot with him or her while the rest of the class is waiting.

So I actually CAN make money from home...

Some good books to re-learn math?

I'm teaching myself to code (Python, mainly), and it's going well, except I keep on running into one big problem: I haven't done any math since high school (6 years ago). I used to be top of my class, and now I can't do simple word problems anymore. This gets tough because they inevitably pop up in the books I'm using, and then I stop dead in my tracks. Could anyone recommend a couple of books or web resources to help me get back up to speed? I never took Calculus, so a good Calculus book would help, too. [more inside]
