>Since you are impressed by this, tell us what this means. For example, tell us...
1. What does the author mean by ?their ability to interpret functions??
2. How is this important in the students' ability to mathematically analyze functions?
3. Why isn?t there ANYTHING in these lessons to increase the students' ability to mathematically analyze functions?
4. Why isn?t there ANY real time feedback in these lessons to help students adjust their ability to mathematically analyze functions?



I scanned the blog entry pretty thoroughly. There is zero discussion of the relevant math at all. I thought Dan was coming close with this:
"Everyone can see which glasses are harder to graph and which are easier, setting up a useful conversation later about why."

But he wants to discuss what the students thought was harder, without ever convincing *us* (the readers) that he's covered the relevant math at all. Is that supposed to be assumed (that he has?)

Cheers,
