Tips & Tricks for Teaching Online - 74 views

    • Dodie Ballard
       
      This is much like the student lounge forum that can be created using Moodle, if that is your LMS system.
    • Dodie Ballard
       
      The other important aspect is to keep the number of windows that have to open to a minimum. If too many windows or links to resources are spread throughout the site, students get confused and frustrated quite easily.

  •  
    "When you love Dropbox like we do, you start syncing more and more stuff. The more stuff you sync, the harder it is to organize.

Thoreau - Walking - Webtext - 41 views

  • When I go out of the house for a walk, uncertain as yet whither I will bend my steps, and submit myself to my instinct to decide for me, I find, strange and whimsical as it may seem, that I finally and inevitably settle south-west, toward some particular wood or meadow or deserted pasture or hill in that direction. My needle is slow to settle—varies a few degrees, and does not always point due south-west, it is true, and it has good authority for this variation, but it always settles between west and south-south-west. The future lies that way to me, and the earth seems more unexhausted and richer on that side. The outline which would bound my walks, would be, not a circle, but a parabola, or rather like one of those cometary orbits, which have been thought to be non-returning curves, in this case opening westward, in which my house occupies the place of the sun. I turn round and round irresolute sometimes for a quarter of an hour, until I decide for the thousandth time, that I will walk into the south-west or west. Eastward I go only by force; but westward I go free.
    • Nathan Hopson
       
      West = new + free, East = old + constrained Not a reference to world history, but to the American context (West = frontier). The Americas were the West (to Europe) and the West was America (as Turner/Billington argue).
  • I must walk toward Oregon, and not toward Europe. And that way the nation is moving, and I may say that mankind progress from east to west.

What does the future of Maths teaching look like? - 2 views

  •  
    If we are to re-engage students with Mathematics, I believe we need to be constantly and consistently striving toward tasks that are collaborative, problem-based and relevant. This does not mean that explicit teaching goes out the window.

Brain Food: Realistic Lateral Thinking Puzzles - 201 views

  •  
    Link from coxmath.blogspot
  •  
    These puzzles are not for me. Perhaps I'm too right-brained.
  •  
    It's probably my Engineering background but some of these assume (incorrectly) alot. For example. "A man is lying dead in a room. There is a large pile of gold and jewels on the floor, a chandelier attached to the ceiling, and a large open window." "Lying" leads one to believe the man is being held down by weight. If we assume he properly set his ballasts for zero/neutral buoyancy he would be floating especially given his now empty tank. Also most wreckage divers use some form of balloon or cabling system attached to a boat to help "carry" heavy loads to the surface. So he wouldn't have been held down by the find. Finally, only the most experienced divers, with the proper training dive for salvage. An experience diver would never be caught out with no air. Not to mention the problems states there is an easy access path with the "large window" so even if things went completely wrong, the diver could have at least tried for the surface. I'm with Sigrid, not for me. ;-)
