@ddmeyer @NatBanting @math8_teacher The thing about school, though, is that it's a huge sale on knowing stuff. It'll never be cheaper.

My Post I Wish You’d Read From Start To Finish
My Favorite Comment
After spending 8 years as an engineer prior to teaching, I always felt that I’d include all kinds of stuff from my engineering life into teaching. However, now that I am slightly wiser and more humbled, that stuff is too specialized, only interesting to me and maybe 2 other kids on a good day.

Thanks for the shoutout on the 100 + 100 post. Ever since I started WYRmath, it’s been at the front of my mind. We rarely stress the importance of units, but that’s where the meat of mistakes seem to be made.
Also, the links for my and Kaleb’s posts are swapped.
