HA! I love it! "Flower beds, managing conflicts"? -- CarolynJohnston - 09 Jun 2005
You women and your flower beds. I'd rather do the "Free throw game, planning" stuff. I suppose this goes a long way to explain why Johnny and Joanie can't make change of a dollar anymore, doesn't it. -- RayMinchew - 09 Jun 2005
Hi Ray! Yes, indeedy, and I haven't even got started posting your stuff! DUCK, EVERYONE! -- CatherineJohnson - 09 Jun 2005
See, the reason you want to do free throw game, planning, Ray, is that you're a guy, and guys have an unfair advantage in target-directed motor skills. Weren't you the one who sent me that article in the first place? -- CatherineJohnson - 09 Jun 2005
"Fat in fast food", however, everybody can relate to. And "Flea treatment, half-life". (This comparison chart is absolutely classic). -- CarolynJohnston - 09 Jun 2005
I saw this list at NYC-Hold and think it's great because in a very small space, parents can get a feel for the overall problem in mathematics education. More specifically, parents can then go to the Singapore Math site and compare real grade-level problems with the homework their kids get. NCTM can talk all they want about constructivism, conceptual understanding, and problem solving, but the proof is in the problems. All that a parent has to do is to compare equal grade level Singapore math and NCTM-type math problems to see who has the better conceptual understanding and problem solving skills. -- KtmGuest - 10 Jun 2005
