… It’s that O-G training… I decided I wanted to incorporate “connecting representations” from the get go, from Jump Street. The link to the Google Doc that has images for number, domino icon and number line representation of the numbers 0 through 10  (yes, zero) lives here.      It’s 4:00 so I shan’t try to upload […]

Next Num Line Done :)

Whereas repeated retrieval is a good thing… I went back and wrote out everything I did for developing a number line activity doing it vertically instead of horizontally. I skipped the 3 steps for checking out whether the numbers were actually lined up on the number line (within 1 of the y axis) so it […]

Still, lots of them […]

So!   IN between applying for a job to help enhance and create math courses… I’m trying to … build a math course!   For our folks who need to prep for the test … or already took the test and need to learn stuff… We’ve got Modumath, but its online presence is — well, […]

“Help outside class”

On twitter, Michael Pershan noted that it’s taken him 3 years to figure out how to get students help outside class. This made several thoughts gel in my feeble brain, the biggest one being that ‘help outside’ is vastly underrated and a huge equity issue. I think we don’t want students to need help outside […]
