Worksheet done :)

February 20, 2018

https://ggbm.at/VYqNytEr  is the link to my “worksheet.”   Now, when I went to mess more with it, I got a 404 for Geogebra.org so I accept I’m supposed to drop this for Modumath for a day or four. I even had a student try it.   Student did much better when I walked away.  🙂 Now, so’s […]

Okay, just dropped bike blog post into wrong place but I’ll move it later… Yesterday I got  an article about “adapting perception, action and technology for mathematical reasoning” sent to me. Lots of scientific defense of the way our brains adapt and different parts do different kinds of processing, such as the way people who […]

I was helping a guy with the Connect lesson where they’re learning about figuring out scaled models.   They like to throw in “real world stuff that twists things” — so they talk about where “3/4” scale actually means 3/4 inches stands for one foot.   It’s a pretty neat exploration.

http://www.learningscientists.org/videos  what… I only sent this to fb friends??? DIdn’t blog it so I could find it later?  THese are pretty decent, tho’ I’d like to make versions that were more diverse in content areas (more math :)) and people doing it… When I get a team to make a course, this will be a branch […]

Scrabbling up the learning curve

November 16, 2016

… so when you’re in the early, early stages and nothing’s automatic… you go back to something you started — not realizing that when you started, you didn’t know better than to call a quiz a “survey” because that means none of the questions have “right” or “wrong” answers. I figured I should just start […]
