Here’s another. Again, these are push-ups to me. If I don’t make an exercise out of turning interesting things into challenging things, the result is that I become less interested in things altogether. Here’s the original thing that interested me.
- h/t Max Goldstein who brought the original animation to my attention. I’m fascinated with his fascination with the dimensions of the Earth’s atmosphere in pixels. If I were to rank the things about that animation that fascinate me, I’m not sure that datum would crack the top fifty. There’s a lesson for me in there somewhere.
- Here’s something that kinda sorta looks like I’m trying to make a lesson plan out of this video.
- While we’re on the subject of #anyqs, I love this effort from Mylène at Shifting Phases. She dips her toes in the #anyqs waters and makes a huge splash.
2011 Sep 06: I posted this #anyqs for response to Twitter and got a long, resounding “Huh?”
It should go without saying that this kind of feedback is just as valuable as the kind where everyone aligns around the same question. Far better to get this feedback now, on Twitter, from a group of math educators, than when it’s too late, in the classroom, from thirty bored math students.
