Brought computer to school so I can do Camtasia. Got 20 points on StackOverflow and new privileges.   Think I’ll wander back there and muck around a little.   I saw some Geogebra references once.   I’m going to *try* to get to the “Geogebra — it’s really that easy!” webinar Wednesday night, despite the fact that these […]

Let’s get back to math!   I finished reading the  article about “adapting perception, action and technology for mathematical reasoning” … Some fun snippets: “People who know algebra show earlier and longer eye fixations to “×”s than “+”s in the context of math problems” Your brain is trained to look at that first and harder.   I *know* I […]

Okay, my “pots on the fire” have shrunk again.   I’ve “shamed” somebody high in the ranks. If ten people tell you you’re drunk, go lie down, right?  This is two, so… I will, but… I’m pretty sure I’m not drunk.  (The same internet that says I’ve shamed informs me through other channels that yea, exclusives […]

Lots of scientific defense of the way our brains adapt and different parts do different kinds of processing, such as the way people who […]

Online weather said “cloudy.”  No, dear ones, it was a moderate […]

Gonna try to have Modumath 1.9 as a “necessary,”  and … division and divisibility are next. Following geogebra tweets (tweetdeck is the way to do that, though it doesn’t let me do snipping tool pastes in posts; it does let me just follow along a ‘twitter chat.’)   I’m realizing these people love the visual stuff.  […]

Contemplating the concept of “melting.” A very subtle change in temperature renders an impassable barrier liquid.   My completely dysfunctional bicycle with cables literally frozen in place could be ridable in an hour so I can take it to the shop. Are there such subtle changes to make to solve other problems?   TOday’s news was turnoffable […]
