|Blog by an Iowa headmaster and teacher of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). See, in particular, Cornally's collection of posts on Standards-Based Grading (SBG) and ongoing series on Honors Calculus course lessons, titled "Calculus: A Comedy," with entries such as numerical integration, front-loading infinitesimals, rice krispie treat conic sections, and circles rule. Subtitled "dealing with the fear of being a boring teacher," ThinkThankThunk dates back to February, 2010, with math posts "Banana Batteries & Dan Meyer," "Inquiry Stylee: Acceleration (Wiimotes!)," "Surreality: Cornally.profDev(you);," "Mandelbrot Redux: Day 2," "Retaining Empathy: Australian Football," "Standards-Based Grading: Helping Students Through Points Addiction," "Why I Light Myself On Fire," "The Bestest Method (Newton’s?)," "Programming and Math: A Moment of Clarity," "Reliving The Horror: Cornally Enrolls in Algebra I," and more. Cornally also blogs for EduBlogger, shares math lessons at Edutopia.org, and delivers speeches — though he would "much rather sit down with your group and hash out some sweet actionable plans for killing boring."|
