Happy Hump Day! Here are some items of interest from the past week:
- ProfHacker gives some tech advice to the not-so-technically inclined. These are actually good for the more technophilic as well.
- At the Computing Education Blog, some notes on an NPR article suggesting that not only are there no such thing as “learning styles”, attempting to tailor one’s instruction to a “learning style” might end up doing harm.
- David Wees offers some thoughts about standardization, starting with traffic lights and ending with educational systems.
- David also has a bunch of questions about the inverted/flipped classroom.
- John Cook has an article about enumerating k x k magic squares.
- Finally, Mike Croucher at Walking Randomly has a curious situation involving a particular integral in MATLAB and in Mathematica. This is sort of related to the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus issue we saw on Monday and stems from a question I asked on Twitter about tables of integration. (Maybe more on that question later.)
