OKAY!!! I successfully did a re-do of my video teaser in less than an hour and uploaded it and fixed the title. No, I don’t like that I left spaces in the title. Yes, that’s a door closing in the middle of it. No, I’m not sending it to them five minutes after I need […]

Yes, I’m prepping my presentation and YES I NEED TO GET THE TEASER DONE.

Anderson, P., Pribesh, S., & Williams, M. R. (2020). A Matched-Samples Comparison of Pass Rates for Students Coenrolled in Developmental Education and College-Level Math Compared to Similar Non-Coenrolled Students. Community College Enterprise, 26(2), 24–36.

Stats and logic accessibility

I was helping a person in Stats 107. They have to answer assorted questions about sets and subsets. Later on there will be ridiculously complicated logic questions. They will learn a pretty nifty strategy for setting up a table and working through them. I was thinking that it’s really helpful to also understand that okay, […]
