…. is harder today, partly because I don’t know how far to go down side roads. I asked a question on the Moodle Forum and I got a deep answer suggesting entirely different constructions for the number line questions, but based only on the one where I had 9 drop zones all with answers. I […]

Moodle Journeys

June 28, 2022


I’ve gotten responses to my questions on Moodle — tho’ of the “you have to upload your question!” to which I replied, that well, I had tried but the instructions for doing that didn’t work. That got a non-stack-overflow guide and I’ve done that. Next question: why do the drop zones not really show where […]

Whew!! Byooodiful day. Sigh, ,almost 7000 cases in the state but … the trend is sorta kinda acting like it’s going down. Whereas I signed up to do the “math” part of the “welcome new people” next THursday so I found this file on connecting representations for Just Plain Numbers. And this is a cool […]

MOODLE journey

May 26, 2022


So! I just successfully spent *most* of the 20 minutes of Pomodoro trying to figure out how to get a “drag and drop” question for putting numbers on a number line. I have one with an image, but that is “not accessible for those with visual impairments.” I have a drag-drop question where people drag […]

Spring! Division, place value

April 14, 2022


On the bus today b/c storms be a-comin’. I had an interesting lesson w/ the Tuesday Teens. Four were there, two were participating, so … yes, I got to be in my comfort zone addressing individuals. Class dynamics — I’m woefully out of practice. We’d introduced “halfiness” from the “Transitions” fractions section. My friend who […]

Can I borrow someone’s brain?

January 20, 2022


So it really looks like I will have several sessions with oh, a solid hour or so with some young adults … to boost their math confidence and skills. (They’ll also work on reading but we’ve got Reading Plus for that. We *don’t* have Modumath any more 😦 😦 ) The program they’re in is […]

Visual organizing

November 5, 2021


My plan is, in my spare time of which I have none, is to make another “name it frame it” movie about taking math procedures and making them less intimidating by organizing them visually. Yes, we have to make sure we don’t toss out comprehension, but these are pretty *perfect* examples of scenarios where if […]

Un-universal design for learning

June 28, 2021


Yea, that’s what I’m having now wiht our “math literacy.” And I know their argument. Hey!!! It’s LIKE THAT IN THE REAL WORLD. My argument is the same: we want them to LEARN this so that they can deal with the confusing aspects in the real world. To wit: ALEKS has a series of problems […]

I’ve already had a student 🙂 This one is repeating a class and … has learned *so much.* As in, a living, breathing reason why our full service support is needed and beneficial. You really wouldn’t recognize this one as the same person. first time through, learning the whole array of navigation — here’s a […]

Groundhog day!

February 2, 2021


Just because I’m distractible doesn’t mean I … I’m helping w/ Elementary Ed math this semester. I wonder if it’s workable for the “I want to teach elementary but I’m not good at math” cohort. It’s full of really fun, varied presentations of basic concepts — I don’t know if they’re basic enough to be […]
