Drive by math at Longridge
While walking through Longridge today I noticed this on a whiteboard in the hall. There were no students or teachers around, just the math. It reminded me of college where one can often walk through residence halls, libraries and other study spots to see whiteboards full someones work. This high level work just left around is not even thought about in college and I wonder if it has a subliminal effect on students. If that is the case maybe we should encourage more whiteboards like the ones I found at Longridge. I wonder what kind of effect it might have on students to see the raw work product that is math as opposed to the usual finished products that adorn the halls of elementary schools.
Just a thought.
