|Blog by a veteran math teacher in Vermont who "believes that math should be taught, not collaboratively explored; algebra and geometry are better than a vague course of Integrated Math; spiraling doesn't work nearly as well as learning it properly the first time; 'I don't DO math' should be an incentive rather than an excuse...." Posts, which date back to June, 2008, tend towards politics, school reform, and "daily silliness"; and have also included "The Further You Extrapolate, the Sillier You Look," "Smart is the New Invisible," "Musing on Multiple Choice," "Graphical Literacy — Graphicacy," "Precise speech is critical in math," "Obsolete in Education — Part Three," and "Algebra in the Third Grade?" and "SAT scores are linked to Family income. So what?"|
