Smart Teaching

  • Heh... you beat me to it, Barry. Despite some awesome technology in some classrooms and the awesome learned abilities by the students in those classrooms, most still can't count change for a dollar correctly. I've also had the great displeasure of interviewing a number of professionals seeking employment that had either a Masters or PHD in Mathematics that can't do a simple base conversion in their head.

    Learning to use technology is one thing... learning what to use it for is another. Last I heard, they want to know what your IQ is... not how fast your computer is (although, it may come to that). 😛

    RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
    First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
    ________Stop thinking about what you want to do to a ROW... think, instead, of what you want to do to a COLUMN.
    "Change is inevitable... change for the better is not".
