Comments: End of School Days 2014

It is fun when you're working with someone who enjoys it. It's even more fun when someone who hated it does a turn around and starts to appreciate it. That's where we are right now and I'm loving it!

Regarding Bones and MATH, you might want to get a copy of "The Joy of X", a collection of NYT op-ed pieces about math.

Found via Freeman Hunt entry dated 11/04/2012 or by googling Wired Steven Storgatz.

It just might be crazy enough to work.

I have several sixth graders in my Geometry class at the high school. The first test I gave this year one of the kids comes walking up after eight minutes. I asked him what his question was and he looks at me a bit funny and tells me he is done. I asked if he had checked his answers and he said "Of course".

Everyone is different.

Totally different. Some kids just see it. T is one who does. Bones is one who does not.

But Bones is am amazing communicator and T is not.

Everyone brings something else to the table.

Has T ever tried to teach Bones math? Or, would that very concept cause all of the matter in the known universe to converge in a black hole located in southern FL?

He has and Bones responds very well to him. Our problem this year was that for 18 weeks... there was literally no homework. Getting him to just review a book is not happening. "But Ma, we don't have homework!"
