tl/dr: a total tangent but I”ll connect. It’s not *quite* a non sequitur. In 1978 at age 18, I was trying to stay awake at my 3rd job, lifeguarding a tiny rooftop pool at Georgian Towers b/c in Montgomery County MD if the apartment had a pool, it had to have a lifeguard. Georgian Towers […]

And 3-day weekend! Yes, I took the bus this a.m. — but hadn’t successfully gotten my itty bitty computer to work so I couldn’t read the Long Thing About How Your Little Certificate Programs Keep Poor People Poor. I *could* read this little description of a way to teach multiplication called Please Go and Bring […]

Seeking unsuccessfully for the elusive template for building labeled number lines on geogebra. I’d hoped if I came back later maybe it would be more searchable. I just have to pretend I didn’t see that and do what I was going to do, anyway. I captioned the “intro to number lines” video . I’ll link […]

LOL no, it’s real friday by the time I get to this! OK I guess I should be grateful this stuff is happening right before I Have Down Time At Home… seems Desmos and Geogebra are *both* doing “let’s collaborate and do the cody stuff with little webinars” — they called it a “buildalong.” There […]
