Palliative education

September 24, 2020

Palliative is one of the vocab. words for teh folks reading _Brain on Fire._ This is the flip side of “yes, I can work with higher level content to teach — yes, I’m going to call them lower level skills. There is benefit to teaching the basic mathematical thinking, especially if we can get to […]

In summer 2018 I had a slow week and I dug out stuff on developmental math and the “reform” movement.   Seemed this winter break was a good time to sweep back to it… one tangent article and webinar were about reforming *high school* with a pithy metaphor:   we should be making mathematics “a pump, not […]

  That’s happening today. I took the bus because the ride home was still lousy on Main Street… … and I wish there were an Inkscape forum.   I found good tutorials but this is, like CSS et al, at that level where you have to know somebody; “click and see what happens” has too many […]

Yes, I’ve got the “plenty of time to do stuff so nothing gets done!” thing happening so!   I’m going to try to have Something To SHare Today.   Well, here’s something 🙂 I found this little “generate the HTML for tables” page  so I don’t have to manually stick a mess of divs in if I want […]

Jack Rotman is a developmental math maven and involved in creating clearer paths for students through college math demands.  This blog about striving to reach 100% of our students   expresses my thinking when I’m looking at the stuff that inspired my “thread” about “successes” in developmental math.   To wit:

Part 1     Part 2    Part 3  Part 4   Part 5   Part 6 Yesterday I posted a “thread” on twitter — my first attempt at that as communication. I’m going to try to replicate that here, more accessibly than the images of powerpoint slides. I’ve been reading a lot of research on developmental math, remedial math, […]

Welp, Wednesday and Thursday were both Too Busy To Breathe days.   TOday I said “No” to subbing (  it’s been so long that I’ve “taught a class” that I have this insane idea that I wouldn’t know what to do…)   and it’s been quieter — it’s also raining hard.   (Left early on the bicycle to […]

Among the thorns? I *did* get my infographic —  mostly info, not much graphic but telling my self that is not a priority and to let it go… though… realizing linking to *it* and not the project itself  is pretty close to useless. I didn’t get to Geogebra.   I *will* on the morrow.  I need to […]

Day 1 of the Geogebra 2-day workshop in. Lots and lots observed and learned. I remembered from Animation that … trying to follow w/ computer splits my brain and I do better watching, thinking, taking actual notes … and then *doing* stuff later.   Plus much was stuff I already know. All every bit of that […]

Landmark insights

Yesterday’s email included a link from Landmark School’s outreach about math  It includes this insight: Memory is strengthened by richness and logic of content. A student looking out the classroom window might mutter “dog” while observing a magnificent German short-haired pointer loping through a freshly poured cement sidewalk. Clearly, something is being missed in the translation. It […]
