1:04 PM | Thanksgiving Inequality question comic
I needed an activity for the last day before Thanksgiving with snow on the way -- and I gave a test yesterday. New topics are useless. Most approaches to working today won't work. So I adapted my first Thanksgiving comic (below) to make it an inequality, which is the topic we most recently covered, and lightened the colors to make it more copier-friendly. I asked them to create their own Thanksgiving-themed math comic on the bottom of the page (which didn't have to be about inequalities), and […]

2:21 PM | Agates – Time Compiled
Agate – Pascal Petit The linear patterns in agates are a kind of Earth process data visualization, their intricate coloured bands, much like the tree rings in dendrochronology, are encoded recordings of palaeoclimatic environments, oscillating temperature and pressure events as well chaotic chemical interactions. The patterns are partly generated by self-organization through chemical feedback processes […]

clearscience: We talked about how integrals will tell you the “area under a curve.” Look up above where we drew a trapezoid to find the area under the curve. A little bit of the trapezoid is actually over the curve though, so it’s not exactly the right area. But it’s close. If we want to get closer, why not use two trapezoids? Then we can add their areas together. Great, how about four trapezoids? Even better, but still a little bit off because the top of a trapezoid is straight, and […]
