The Judo Math app is here!

One of my former students came up to me a few years ago, wanting to know what extra work he could do because he was going to be absent the next day.  He said he was going to a seminar on coding.  I told him he’d probably learn a lot more in that seminar than he would in a day’s worth of school so he shouldn’t worry about any homework.  “Maybe you can write me a Judo Math app one day,” I said. Two years and thousands of hours of work...

Can first graders really figure this out in 20 seconds?

Can first graders really figure this out in 20 seconds?

Take a look at the picture below.  According to the text, it’s a question given to 1st grade students in Hong Kong as part of an admissions test.   I guess my question is, why does a first grader need to know this in under 20 seconds?  Does it prove intelligence somehow?  It took me longer than 20 seconds to figure it out.  I’m 44 years old.  I managed to graduate at the top of my class in high school.  So what makes this question special or predictive of...

Achieving Equity in  Assessment

  I close my eyes, take a deep breath, and shout, “Go!” It sounds like I am standing in the middle of Qualcomm Stadium and the Chargers just won the Super Bowl. But it’s not cheering I am hearing—it is students helping students. It may be the sweetest thing I have ever heard. I look to my left and I hear a student say, “Tell me the steps you went through to solve that.” I walk to my right and I hear, “Are you sure that’s what the next step is?” I keep walking around...

Equity in Education: Where to Begin?

Equity in Education: Where to Begin?

In a profession increasingly full of angst and positioning and corrective policy, there are few ideas as easy to get behind as equity. Equal. Equality. Equity. Equilibrium. Equate. These are all fine ideas — each tidy and whole, implying its own kind of justice while connoting the precision of mathematics. Level. Same. Twin. Each word has its own nuance, but one characteristic they share is access — a level, shared area with open pathways that are equidistant to...
