Day 1: 22 June, 99 Things seem to be okay. The groups naturally formed themselves as the students sat in 3 rows of approximately 4 each. The Explorations may have been a bit too easy I think. A couple of the students seemed bored – I’ll need to watch this. Assignment: page 7, 1-5 (all parts of all problems) 1 July, 99 I’m not certain that I like this book that much – it seems to be lacking in rigor. The groups are growing frustrated – a couple of students have asked when they are going to start doing “real math” – like the kind they need for their other classes. I feel for them. This book seems to do a good job of teach Math, but not symbol manipulation skills which are important in their other classes. Grading homework every day is a pain in the ass.
