Weekend Ed. Quote ~ May 5

I don’t divide the world into the weak and the strong, or the successes and the failures…I divide the world into the learners and the nonlearners. ~Benjamin Barber, theorist, author,  August, 1939 – April 24, 2017

Math Conversations Go Global

Would you get up at 2:00am to discuss math concepts? Students in Kenya did tonight! They slept at their school in order to participate in an online, global Fuze meet-up w/ high school math students from two schools in California. This project is under the supervision of Dr. Eric Hamilton of Pepperdine University.

All students’ insightful, engaging conversations and discussions of their STEM projects were illuminating for me. “Illuminating” is a word of hyperbole but it fits tonight after listening to these insightful students. Boundaries can be shattered from just these types of conversations!
