Back!

I’ve spent my week bike-camping with GITAP folks, and now it is SUmmer Session. Happily, there’s nothing like a week sleeping in a tent to make the 7:30 arrival time (the price of the 4-day work week) an easy adjustment. So, 7.25 work-weeks remaining in which to produce Working Stuff For The Transitions Course.   […]

Sproing! Sproing!

My twitter feed over the weekend sent me here: http://dschool.stanford.edu/blog/2013/04/19/hey-eduinnovators-apply-for-the-d-fellowships/ and… objectively speaking, it’s a wonderful opportunity to focus my energies on communicating my ideas, and a ridiculously long shot (it’s aimed at “restless experts” and  there are amazing things out there, from people even more restless and more expert than I am) but I’m psyched — […]

Our Math 095 course teaches Interval Notation in chapter 1, at the beginning of the year.   It causes stress — oddly, one of the things that causes the most stress is “why do they use parentheses sometimes and brackets other times?”  but that could be simply that it’s de-emphasized in the classroom in favor […]

So! New Academic Year is beginning, with new adventures: the four-week “concept builder” module that I’m helping build, trying out Dreambox assuming we can get things rolling in time. Okay, trying out software isn’t new, but this is the first time the software has students actually manipulating non-symbolic objects on a screen — if I […]

Dreaming of Dreambox…

The semester’s done! My grandiose plan of emailing a fun Flash lesson timed so it would arrive during the final didn’t make it (well, I did study for my own final just a little — but just did a few things on the “code correction” and handed it in.  It’s a little funny — now […]

So! TOday shall not be a distraction day.    I know how to make a cute drag drop activity in Flash that will only stop and “stay” (well, the target image becomes visible and the dragged image disappears, so it looks like it stopped there).   Next:   apply that to counting rods so that combinations that would […]
